A PARTIR DE ZERO : THE SOFTBAY ‘RENAISSANCE ?
STARTING DATE : 10/07/18 !! #BOOKNOW !!
1. ADMPawards: Hello Chri$, can you introduce yourself, and reveal your ‘origin story’ to the peoples ?
2.ADMPawards: Right! The platform is set; What is #SOFTBAY, value-proposition then?
CKS: The objective here was to create a structure capable of responding to problems, requests and the needs of legal and/or natural persons, in the field of information technology in general, and particularly in the software sector. In short, it was about creating the environment where to put into action the know-how and experience acquired in training and in the field, in order to offer a quality service, with regard to the creation of websites and applications that are ergonomic, flexible, scalable, with attractive graphical interfaces and all of this, at a low cost, or at least at a competitive price.
3.ADMPawards: Sweet! On to the famous ADMP/SOFTBAY partnership…What is really good about it? Let me rephrase it…In a few words, what is the value-proposition within the ADMP/SOFTBAY partnership ?
4.ADMPawards: We love tech. But, never supported ‘empty technological projects’ that do not solve anything in ‘real life’. Does your training project, solve any current problems on the ground, where you live ? (#Glocal)
CKS: The problem-solving proposition, came from an observation: most of our graduates in Computer Science and other related fields, struggle in the field to produce concrete and innovative digital solutions. Few of them, really manage to stand out, to think further than the often obsolete theoretical foundations that our education system gives us. It is therefore a question of bringing these students to another level of their art and enabling them to keep abreast of the latest innovations in the field.
CKS: Moreover, In addition to sharing more advanced knowledge, Our program, “A partir de zéro” also aims to be a showcase for local innovations; enabling our young talents to be seen and emerge.
This training therefore aims to be the first school dedicated to the “Web and mobile” for the ‘Android-Generation’ of Africa.
5.ADMPawards: We agree: The ‘Androiders’ deserve to find jobs! Can you breakdown how you are going to help Androiders, achieve that aim?
For this edition, we tried to widen our field of application by allowing also the youngest to be initiated into the digital environment; therefore in addition to the web and mobile development MODULE, we added the office automation, the computer graphics, the computer maintenance and the network management. The aim is not to turn them into experts in two months but to give them a solid enough basis to launch themselves into the job market! And with time, break new grounds in the digital world.
6.ADMPawards: Big ! How many learners do you expect ?
Currently the number of participants is limited by the capacity of the room which can only accommodate 30 people per module. We are counting on the success of this edition to finance the rental of other rooms, in addition for training and conferences to come.
7.ADMPawards: Yeah…. it would be a good idea to look at other sources of funding, maybe like conferences, professional training workshops, tee-shirts sales, etc… Do you deliver any certification, at the end of the program?
We deliver training certificates recognized by most of our Business partner looking for people capable of handling and manipulating the technologies we’ll train them, into.
8.ADMPawards: The semi-final of the FiFA World cup 2018 is pitting the ‘French Golden Generation’ Versus the ‘Belgian Golden Generation’, with a strong ‘AfrO’ flavour to the players (Pogba, Kompany, Fellaini, Dembélé, Nabil Fekhir,…) on display !! – Beside ADMP, do you have any other partners? In an other word, what do you need for your Digital inception, to be successful, in the short-term?
CKS: Given that our main medium-term objective is to open a training centre dedicated to digital professions, a partner with the appropriate rooms, classrooms, or computer labs, would be a major asset in accelerating the process of setting up such a project. As for the World Cup, may the BEST WIN !!
