29.08.2018
Andela Kenya Offices

On this Episode of Andela Workshops...

Anthony Nandaa

Against the backdrop of hype, boilerplate code, blotted applications and dogma; what can a modern engineer learn from pragmatism and minimalism? Doing what works and what’s minimal (KISS - keep it simple and stupid). We will be exploring this through various angles and looking at a number of code and system design examples. It’s going to be opinionated and open conversation, so come ready to engage, on this episode of Andela Workshops

This workshop will be led by Anthony Nandaa. Nandaa is a seasoned software engineer with over 8 years of industry experience but about 15 years of writing code, since Pascal. Among many other things, he is currently an Engineering Manager at Andela Engineering (Technology department), the group in charge of building internal software for Andela.
