Happy Saturday! We are looking for volunteers to support the presence of Coders Who Travel at the maiden Ghana Data Science Summit 2019 (http://www.indabaxghana.com) General applications have closed for this event. But as a volunteer for CWT, we can negotiate since we are friends with the organizers. Happy dance! The event will be geared towards focus group discussions between faculty at tertiary institutions and c-suite executives. We look forward to assessing if this event, can pulled off at this short two weeks notice. Thanks & Kind Regards- Rosie, on behalf of the CWT team.

Lecturers, Teaching Assistants and Managers at the University of Ghana (and other tertiary institutions) juggle between many duties. They deal with high-student ratios. Under funded resources for Science and Computer labs. Not only STEM majors but even Arts/Humanities curriculums. It is very easy to blame these men and women fighting every day to ensure the next generation of engineers, computer and mathematical programmers, economics and business school majors in Ghana have adequate skillsets. The Coders Who Travel team has spoken to students and career professionals in September 1, 2018. On February 5, 2019, we spoke to C-Suite executives. Now, we want the Faculty to know what their students feel, know and say versus what C-suite executives (who make hiring decisions) believe should be the right project-based training at schools. This is a win-win situation!
There is a lot to be learned from well respected women who have traded shoes, bags, electronics, gadgets, make-up, cosmetics and other goods for more than 10 years in the trading town called Makola in the heart of Accra; Ghana's capital. These women love the adventure of traveling and discovering products that resonate with Ghanaians particularly the youth. They have built successful businesses without leveraging too much technology. Imagine if the Coders Who Travel-Africa group could come together to enable them develop platforms that allows them to sell more. We asked one of them, and she said, "we would like that!" That is what this meeting is about: Getting to know them Discussing their needs Exploring a potential partnership with them
