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.

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 ...

Tech Needs Girls : The Begining!

How did this even happen? Well back in 2012, Regina Agyare posted something on the Ghana Developers Google groups and I complained about such programs always being in Accra and never held in Kumasi, so females over there do not have the same opportunities as those in Accra (don’t even get me started on the Northern part of Ghana). Well, I guess my concern was heard, my friend and mate Charisma Naa-Achere Buxton replied and supported what I said. Ato Ulzen-Appiah and Bobby Okine (co-founder of mfriday) told me to organize one in Kumasi, and they will fully support me. ...
