July 12 Meet Recap

On the agenda for this week was the Pamoja Media team comprising Comark Maloba, the  chief technical officer and lead developer for the Ukulima Challenge, Evans Gikunda, a software engineer and Christian.

Christian on the first presentation about Startups

Christian was first on the floor with a presentation on start ups, illuminating some of the business sense that goes into management of projects and how best to make the best out an idea when one wants to sell their product to the right audience.
The next presentation saw Comark and Christian dabble together in the Ukulima Challenge. The key message they sent out to the developer here was to think outside the box and provide real solutions that solve real problems. They also stressed the need to make the applications as simple and easy to use as possible with Comark sharing a favourite line of his, “make the app idiot proof”. Still on the topic, he announced that the Sokoni app from K.U. would be getting support from the Pamoja team.
