The curtains came down on the first edition of Africa Nazarene University’s short course on Mobile Programming using Java. The class had 30 students, most of whom were third years and fourth years pursuing Computer Science and Business and Information Technology degree programmes.

The intake was overwhelming, but I could only take 30 students in the class. It showed the student’s interest in Mobile technology, and thus the need to have more such sessions offered frequently.

At the end of the course, students came up with projects which were showcased to the rest of the Africa Nazarene University community  on 27th Nov. 2009.  In presence also were officials from KIRDI (Kenya Industrial Research Institute), a national research institute under the Ministry of Trade and Industry mandated to undertake multidisciplinary research and development in industrial and allied technologies. The officials considered to register some of the projects in the nationally funded Incubation programme at KIRDI center in Nairobi, Kenya.

The next class begins on 16th January 2010, and will run for the next four Saturdays, starting from 8:30AM – 1:00PM.

This time round, I expect the class to be a better experience, for myself and the students, since I have picked some of the best students in the previous class to be lab assistants. I believe this will make things move faster, and will add positively on the students’ experience.
