African Tech Bits: Nairobi Dev School Nurturing The Next Generation


On this second of Episode of African Tech bits we feature a young lady for whom the adage if at first you don’t succeed try, try and try again. Njeri Chelimo was on her way to a career in medicine but her passion for tech ultimately drew her in. Self driven and motivated Njeri Chelimo is the founder of the Nairobi Dev School a program  that seeks to teach up and coming developers various skills from how to build web & mobile applications to entrepreneurship. Her story of how she began the school is one of those great examples that demonstrate being told no doesn’t necessarily mean the end of the road. But i’ll let her tell us her fascinating tale herself.
