There are loads of very smart software developers ordered by rand() across our continent who have immense knowledge they can share among themselves and also with the younger generation of wanna be developers.
This website is an attempt at trying to bring the otherwise mostly introversial software developers out of their shells (errrm.. not terminal) to some level of socialization within their community of practice where they get to share their info, useful resources and knowledge that will benefit everyone. A lot of us have personally benefited from the sea of free tutorials and resources scattered across the web. We have over the years filtered through to know the good from the bad (such a painful process). Now with this website, developers can provide their colleagues with pointers to time-saving resources.
Keeping us organised will make it easier for us to attract more attention (the positive of course). Corporates seeking to award contracts will now look in-country for the expertise, and this website makes it very easy, especially with the very flexible search. The government now knows where to find us. That pretty much will end the excuse for taking contracts out
