Where to start or continue
  • Step 0: Register on edX.org with your google account
  • Step 1: Register for MITx introduction to computer science (Just the first week suffices for  an introduction)
  • Step 2: Complete the career development form on our homepage and  schedule a remote or onsite session
  • Step3: Email us a week later to book an appointment. The gap is to allow us time to conduct due diligence.

All 9JEducation members get free access to our remote labs  and all AW Members are eligible for project work. Got questions and/or concerns, send us an email or use the search this site.  I've added a lot of content on this site based on my past experiences with my students, use search, look for something interesting. 

Our reference site is intentionally a Google Site,  it's a great collaborative tool with secure permissions and  version history. We tagged this site as Britto's research in 2019  to protect his intellectual capital  (@ MITx  CTA ) and now he's helping us manage AW. He has the keys to the kingdom!

Segun Sobulo (request verification link)  will be acquiring half  (yoruba culture, one of two sons, the other being Deji) of The Mrs Silifat Sobulo and Prof Raufu Estate wherever google's audit trail leads us to be donated in a scalable manner to community projects by AW members. This is not a witch hunt, it's just  the fastest way to kick us off. We're ready, my students are chomping at the bits but they are not going to work for free, NYSC is a service, it is not slavery!

I've been busy building a java cloud over the past decade all on my own o. But it was necessary, the moment I heard google was coming to Nigeria, I answered the NYSC call to come serve my country! Greatest kutites, I hail o. We are not alone. AW is built by Nigerians for Nigerians. I am retired. I'm not the one going to figure out how to answer  enquires from the North on Facebook, but we have 500+ members everywhere. We all need rest, but the site is open and free to use for all members.

Not all AW benefits are free. But we're flexible. we know ourselves. And we have the technology to implement scalable pricing models. No member of AW will ever ask you for payment,. To conduct business with us of any kind. Email sky@appsworkforce.appspotmail.com

My fellow Nigerians,

To paraphrase Thor's Ragnok marvel movie,  AppsWorkforce( AW) is a people. AW members are a 100% certain that:

  • You learn more about programming in 1 week of MIT's 6.00.1x than you will 4 years in most places in Nigeria (poly,uni, etc).
  • You earn more when you value knowledge. Programming builds human capital, What you can do will add value everywhere around you.
  • You have fun when you know what you're doing. 
School is cool
MOOCs enable you to learn from the best schools in America. Choosing a good curriculum allows  you to:
Nigerians are cool
Remember your upbringing at home, Academic and professional integrity makes earning a decent living very justifiable

MIT's 6.00.1x on edX - June 5th - Aug 7th, 2019

posted May 2, 2019, 4:55 PM by Segun Razaq Sobulo   [ updated May 7, 2019, 6:22 AM ]

Once upon a time, learning computer science in Nigeria was bleak but now, there's a 6.00.1x.

This course provides an excellent introduction to  computer science and programming. The course is taught online  by professors at MIT. I've been using a flipped MOOC model that leverages the course content from 6.00.1x to teach programming since 2016. 

Taking this course is privilege. I'm immensely grateful to the good people at MITx for providing this opportunity to the world . In particular, it provides young Nigerians with a credible and viable way to learn. Our country is mired with problems and this course definitely builds your problem solving skills with weekly intriguing challenges that require programming solutions

Happily ever after ending. In my humble opinion,  the course  is heaven sent. Everyone should try it. 

15 hours per week commitment (to MIT's lecture videos and assignments) recommended to keep pace with the course.

Best Regards,
Segun
