She Codes 2014 : Empowering Girls In The Slum Through Coding!

On the 25th of January 2013, Tech Needs Girls Ghana, a non profit organization which I’m a co-founder and mentor of, organized a one-day coding and leadership workshop for 60 girls from Nima and Mamobi in Accra, Ghana in collaboration with the Achiever’s book club.

My Top 40 favourite Songs of 2013

Music Music Music! We all love listening to music. Music is a great way for me to forget about everything and concentrate on being happy and worry about nothing and live in the moment. Music heals and it’s definitely an important piece in my life. I listen to a lot of genres, any music that sounds good and delivers a good message is okay for me, eventhough sometimes the lyrics just don’t make sense and I probably enjoy such music because of the instrumentals and mixing. Without further or do, in no particular order, here is my top 30 favourite ...

My Top 10 Favourite Must Have Linux Apps

I love the Linux operating system. It is the best and I have tried so many distributions and I have finally settled on one I like, Ubuntu 12.04. I was never a huge fan of linux and I disliked the look and feel. I was comfortable with using windows and I wasn’t interested using another OS. However, it sounded cool to be a linux user and so I partitioned my drive and installed linux on it. I never really used it and brought it up during geeky conversations to sound cool :), don’t judge me! I am a huge fan ...

So You Bought An App?

I had never owned a Smart Device till now. And in February this year I installed Bluestacks  App Player for windows ( by then I was more into Windows than Linux ). Bluestacks  App Player allows you to operate in an android-like environment in the player. You can install android apps in bluestacks and it works great. I installed a couple of free apps like WatsApp and some word games. I bought my first app on bluestacks. I loved the game ‘Field Runners HD’ and decided to purchase it for $1.99. I felt great after my first app purchase, but a couple ...

5 Reasons You Should Try The Laravel PHP Framework

I have been a php developer for 2 years now and in that time I never used a Framework. I was obsessed with learning many programming languages, but after almost a year, I decided to concentrate on being a web app developer, using primarily PHP. PHP is awesome and it is one language I understand extremely well and can express myself, just like JAVA, but I still prefer PHP. A friend of mine introduced me to the PHP Codeigniter framework, and I decided to try it.   I started learning and the documentation was absolutely fantastic. It took me a ...

My Favourite Videos Of The Week

It is quite funny that the title of the post is ‘my favourite videos of week’. I hardly watch videos during the week and I spend every Saturday, catching up, watching youtube videos, doing some personal work, updating my blog, and picking a ‘trotro’ to Adum and back without doing anything there. It’s all an attempt to get out a little and let loose. I never really realize how boring my life is till someone ask what I do during the weekends. But you know, who needs extra fun when you’ve got YouTube, thank you Chad Hurley, Jawed Karim and ...
