Whenever we hear of the term software engineers or software developers, we think it is that complex subject or skill that can only be offered at Harvard, Yale, MIT or even closer home at JKUAT, The UoNBI or Maseno University. However, this is not really the case.

Designed for aspiring developers, this course will teach you all the basic skills and knowledge to be a professional software developer. It is a full four-year software engineer’s course completed in under 13 weeks that is hands-on and experiential as the students work on actual projects before the course comes to its end – this is available only at Podii Academy.

Podii Academy is a Kenyan-based coding Bootcamp that provides web development training to generate a pool of software developers/talent to overcome the severe shortage of skilled software development skills in Kenya.

Success stories so far:

Podii has so many students who have successfully completed its coding Bootcamp/course and are now attached and are working with many leading companies across the world. Below are just two of those people.

Linda works for Mob Squad in Calgary, Canada
Calvin now works as a software consultant for a bank in Nairobi

There’s a gap!

In as much as the government of Kenya has an ICT roadmap with an emphasis on its infrastructure development, there is no one talking about affiliated skills needed and the skills gap that’s there. This then calls for a concerted effort from the tech community to build highly skilled people and fill the gap with globally competitive software developers.

Even if as a country we have the best ICT infrastructure in Africa, we will have to import skilled people to fill in the highly competitive jobs available that are on high demand with less number of qualified software developers’ talent.
Software powers every tech gadget available around us. From the basic phones that most Kenyans have made as part of their daily lives to complex industrial systems. We live technology, we breathe technology and we have embraced technology.

For Kenya to compete globally and regionally, we must have our own pool of software development talent.
It’s in this backdrop that Podii Academy is set up in Kenya to get people ready for the next challenge in the software development realm.

So, How Do You Join Podii Academy?

Podii promises the talents that pass through its 13 weeks of training job placement opportunities with highly competitive and reputable companies in the country and around the world.

All you have to do is apply, and take the opportunity to learn and be empowered to upskill yourself for this global challenge.
