I would like to use my personal story as an intro to talk about a free coding school for under privileged youth. I spend 12 years at Property Property, the last 7 as CEO, building into one of the top Internet companies in Africa, with a valuation of $100 million. I left the company and on a journey of self-discovery learned to code. Now we are launching a free coding school in South Africa for under privileged youth to delivery on Africa’s Human potential and solve the skills shortage of developer skills.
