Iyin starts with giving a background of himself and how going to the Univesity of Waterloo in Canada transformed his life. He dreamed of bringing the university’s co-op system to Nigeria.
Andela is a product of many talented people who truly want to change the world. Andela is a 4-yr co-op programme where people work, get paid and learn, he explains the rationale behind 4yrs.
Andela wants to build world-class developers who not just develop, but solve problems and become decision makers in the world. With an average age of 25, and a drive to get more women in, Andela candidates will become full stack developers over the 4 years.
