“Computers are incredibly fast, precise and stupid; humans are incredibly slow, imprecise and brilliant; together they are powerful beyond imagination”

Albert Einstein

We are convinced that pedagogical or professional training alone is not enough to produce technical experts, and that whatever their level of training, they are always overwhelmed because technology is changing so quickly. This is why we think it is useful to bring an additional layer to the training of engineers and share our passionate experience with computer scientists from all sectors, students, trainers, workers, or self-taught.

For this, we rely on the intensification of practical experience, and adopt an inductive approach, favoring reasoning going from the concrete case to the abstract principles, from the particular to the general, from practice to theory.

Présentation de conférence

Orientation

  • Identify and direct towards appropriate initial training, for example for those who have no technical knowledge, but want to train or simply change their professional orientation

Interaction

  • Organize webinars, practical training seminars in schools, universities and companies, based on a specific theme and aimed at identifying specific technical skills and knowledge

  • Organize conferences aimed at presenting a technical product, a concrete problem of the professional world with its solution...., with at the end of the workshops to practice, exchange, share

Pedagogical Direction

  • Produce and make available content developed to meet a specific need, in a specific technical field. This can be done through mentoring, illustrated tutorials in the form of problems-constraints-solution, white paper, technical project subjects, or even interactive discussion channel

Inclusion

  • Ensure technology watch

  • Contribute to the development of school training programs, by intervening on the practical aspect and by training trainers

Emulation

  • Create centers of excellence and integration with the same vocation as our centers of technical expertise, where we train “raw talent” capable and ready for technical intervention

Heading for Africa/

“We can only act effectively by working together”
_The Devops Hapiness Maker  (15).png

Edmund Burke

The development of the internet, new technologies and big and famous projects such as Linux owe their success to community minset and teamwork. We are not professors who come to teach computer science. We are a team of enthusiasts who want to expand to Africa, share our passion with other enthusiasts, and make the most of the genius that abounds in this continent. Because we are convinced that this approach aimed at raising everyone to the top and at the same level can only promote digital and economic development in Africa.

Our credo

Share with you our experience and our challenges, overcome the usual limits and build new technical and innovative solutions.

Our ambition

Enable juniors to stand out on innovative technological subjects and offer themselves a springboard, predisposing them to multidisciplinary profiles.

Our goal

Bring out enthusiasts of tech in general, and open source solutions in particular, motivated and able to work rigorously and independently.
