Ardan Labs Podcast

Jan 19 2022 • 1 hr 11 mins


Ehioje Henry Eraboris a senior software engineer at BFREE. Growing up in Nigeria in the 1990’s, programming was not common in schools. Henry recalls a memory of his class being brought to the computer lab but they were instructed NOT to touch, only look. From that moment he wanted to know how these "TV’s with keyboards" operated. We learn about the school system in Nigeria, programming on paper, the National Youth Service Corps, and Henry’s path to becoming a software engineer.
