My journey as a self-taught developer began with a burning curiosity. Growing up in Uganda, where resources were scarce, I couldn't afford a formal education. Instead, I relied on handwritten notes from friends and online tutorials.
As time went on, I got good at building websites for local businesses, each project proving my self-taught skills.
But my dream of joining a major tech company seemed unreachable. Rejections piled up, all due to my academic background and self-doubt crept in.
Then, a turning point. A friend I had shared my knowledge with landed a job at a promising startup in Kampala. He believed in me and recommended me. For five years now, I've been working remotely for that very company. They saw the potential in passionate, self-taught talent.
But my heart is saddened by the millions in Uganda and the world facing the same challenges.
That's why I am sharing my knowledge on this platform and other social platforms.
