Prof. Zachary speaking on entrepreneurship and innovation said having a new idea is most vital for young entrepreneurs to become successful  in the tech business.

 

30 Computer Science students from Makerere, Kyambogo, Mbarara and Kampala Internal Universities are undertaking a Mendix software development challenge at the Makerere University College of Computing and Information Sciences (CoCIS).

The training that takes ten weeks is conducted annually so as to empower the students with different skills that they can use to engage clients in the entrepreneurship world of technology which involves software development.

Mendix is a rapid tool for software development that does not use a lot of codes. $10m has been set aside by its parent company Mendix USA and Mansystems Netherlands to improve its applicability on PCs, mobile and tablets.

The training is being supported by Mansystems, Mendix, Smile communications and Makerere University’s CoCIS.
