Fresh Year, Fresh Capabilities

To encourage the development of professional skills by enriching understanding pertaining to innovative technological tools, The Works Community team initiated the ‘New Year, New Skills’ program.

We are thrilled to declare that Works has formed an alliance with Educative – a platform providing coders with access to top-notch courses, videos and unique learning environments that cater to their level of expertise. Educative aims to transform the standard of comprehensive education and ensure tech enthusiasts are up to date with the latest innovations. Our partnership signifies our dedication to supporting the community in acquiring new competencies.

In honour of our partnership with Educative, we arranged a contest enabling a single lucky Works community member to claim a free one-year membership to their esteemed online educational platform.

We initiated a poll within the Educative community to determine what areas they would like to explore in the forthcoming year and how Educative can support them by achieving their objectives, such as acquiring a novel ability or comprehending a new technology stack.

We received a copious quantity of contest entries from renowned and skillful community members. We are thrilled to declare that Kihereko Wanja from the Works Learning Community was selected as the victor.

Eliud Kihereko Wanja, spent his early years in a diminutive town. Currently, he works as a front-end developer and is zealous about discovering innovative approaches in his field. Kihereko aspires to become an Android developer.

In terms of my educational development, Educative has been an invaluable asset. Currently, my primary focus is the exploration of data structures, algorithms and system design, and the ability to partake in courses led by industry experts has proved immensely beneficial. It has enabled me to acquire an enhanced comprehension of the software designing process, as well as refining my logical problem-solving capabilities – an aspect I previously encountered difficulty with. ALC, the Works Learning Community project, in addition to Google and Pluralsight’s fantastic learning resources have been exceptionally beneficial.
