Can we meet you?
My Name is Sunkanmi Daniel Olawuwo. I studied Electrical and Electronics Engineering with no prior knowledge of programming before coming to Moat Academy.
What were you doing before joining Moat Academy?
I was a Field Engineer with a Remote Monitoring Solutions Company; I resigned because i wanted to change my career path.
What exactly do you want to achieve with the software development skills?
I am looking to pursue a successful career in software development; then establish tech startups that will proffer solutions to some of the challenges being faced in the world.
How has things Changed For you since gaining Software Development Skills?
It has helped me to understand and be able to work with the technology around me. In a way it has improved my communication, creative thinking, and self-confidence. It gives me a newfound sense of energy to really pursue the goals i want in life.
What was your biggest fear before coming to Moat Academy...?
My biggest fear was the complexity and difficulty attached to learning programming languages. I did not believe I would be able to understand programming and web development in that short space of time.
How I feel now?
I feel empowered because i have one of the most in-demand skills in the world. With God, hard work and consistency I am on course for a successful career in software development.
How will you describe your experience at Moat Academy?
The boot camp is a mirror image of what to expect out there as a software developer with daily assignments and mini-projects every week.
The approach to teaching is world class; the facilitators are patient and always ready to help.
What have you been able to achieve with the training?
Towards the end of the boot camp, we worked on our final projects. I was able to develop a web application (Professional Networking Site: which allows members to share posts, comment on posts, follow and unfollow one another) from scratch to completion and I now have a job as a Software Developer.
What advice do you have for those coming into Moat Academy?
My advice for them is that they should be devoted and dedicated to the training. Moat Academy has its own standards; students need to work hard in other to achieve the expected outcome after 11 weeks.
What is your future Outlook in Software Development?
I have a solid foundation thanks to Moat Academy, I am looking to learn more and grow through the ranks as quick as possible.
