For website, it is a complete digital classroom with e-learning features.
Jesnaija: that awesome
Question 8: is there any successful developer you’re crushing on? If yes who?
Respond: “Programmers have no life”, that is what they say and it is simply because we are busy creating one solution or the other and if not creating, then we are fixing bugs, so we have no time to date.
It’s funny right…
But I have a girlfriend, I am dating and her name is Blessing Shinvel Kesuwo – love of my life.
Jesnaija: wow!!! Wish you all the best in your relationship
Question 9: My favorite meal, it’s tough to decide…

Respond: Worst website is MKLOADED, a forum web application.
Question 13: how was the stress you’ve encountered during that time?
Respond: The stress was much… Sleepless nights just to develop something that I myself don’t like, but it was worth it.
I didn’t really had much skills then, but MKLOADED project helped to boost my understanding on some parts of Server-side Programming
Question 14: in the coding world, what’s your biggest fear?
