A talk at the sci(school of computing and informatics)

Getting inspired as a student to view the course that you are currently doing as a potential career subject is becoming something of the blues. the attitude that most undergraduate students have nowadays is tilted(as i can put it) to the pessimistic side due to the high unemployment rates being experienced in the current. With regard to inspiration or rather motivation, the school of computing and information at Chiromo is collaborating with the Code for development laboratory to inspire youths around their ecosystem.

The “program” or procedure to get to know when to get inspired starts with the simple journey of you following a Facebook page from the school of computing, twitter page or by following the famous tech savvy graduate “prof Nandaa” https://twitter.com/profnandaa.

The hash-tag is #PowerForum. after following these related social media channels, book your Wednesday afternoon to navigate your way to Chiromo campus for one of their talks.

I managed to attend the last two #PowerForums this year and meet a couple of leaders/Who is who in the tech space in Kenya. I also got to see the bigger picture that these talks aren’t just meant for computer geeks but also guys trying to run enterprises.

There is a bit of a downer though. you might never really get to know who will be giving the talks since you need to get an Eventbrite ticket to get those details. Simply following the action on twitter or Facebook will not do any good.  Taking advantage of the opportunity with the guest speaker is quite easy at this forum though you need to carry your own business card… just in case. Thirdly getting the directions for riverside drive… and the lecturer theater is many a times a nightmare to the attendees unless of-course you are a university of Nairobi alumni.
