I am writing this blog with the simple aim to show how technology has endless possibilities where it can be used to benefit society and, in general, be used to do good in the world.
I am hoping to encourage or inspire those who are already in the industry, but in different areas, to focus their skills on helping others. I hope to inspire young people to consider a career in technology by showing them examples of how technology can be used to improve quality of life.
Many people have the notion that having a career in technology consists of sitting down at a computer all day in an office block, where employees go through the daily grind at their desk waiting for the day to be over. However, working in technology can be one of the most rewarding jobs around, especially when you are working on something that will benefit someone, and improve their quality of life. Also, modern technology companies try to make their offices as fun as possible to bring out the creativity in their employees and to make employees enjoy their work, which in turn brings out their potential.
If all this blog achieves is that it plants a seed in someone’s head that might grow into an idea or aspiration, or if this blog becomes somewhat of a source of motivation to consider a career in technology I will have accomplished my goal.
I will leave you with this extremely motivating and inspiring video that gives you a glimpse of the “superpower” that is coding: What most schools don’t teach
