Nigeria Computer Society needs a lot to do to encourage this.
Re: Association Of Programmers In Nigeria by Flexcubed: 8:57pm On Mar 13, 2009
I agree with yawa-ti-de, I think what we need are usergroups like we have in Adobe, msdn etc today.
Maybe from usergroups, the larger association of programmers can then evolve. Usergroups are targeted at specific technologies and exists to foster sharing of ideas and concepts as they evolve.

There 're heap of guys out there that really want to get to know programming but find it decidedly difficult to learn on their own.
I thank God for myself cos am self taught but some still have to be taught and will very much be willing to assist them. I own www.flexcubed.com and www.lumzy.com (still in beta) and have made a living out of it with over 2,500 paying clients across the world in 3 years. I have made friends in almost all the countries of the world today albeit I've only traveled once.
I wish to share same knowledge with other Nigerians, the only fear is that people tend to want to learn cos of the money but you'll never be good if money is the primary purpose of learning. I think a Usergroup will proofer better opportunity and platform to share knowledge and assist other people, telling them that instead of fraud, they can make good money and be valuable to the world.

Am a Professional Actionscript programmer. AS2, AS3 and Flash Lite.
I major in Flash, Flex and AIR Components and have worked with Adobe on Flash Player 9.
I reside in Lagos Nigeria.

I believe starting by bringing all Nigerian coders to one forum will be a very good starting pint so that companies and government interested in hireling good programmer can have a community where they can find them.

There is a new forum for such

www.codersporch.com

If you are a programmer and you are not part of this forum within the next couple of months when Jim and his guys will be looking for good Nigerians, you don miss be dat ooo.

I got u right, and I am highly impressed for this great innovation. All these associations started somewhere. We can start something better. Perhaps the going might be tough initially but we would get there.

Thanks

Handyxinclude me in the list
Re: Association Of Programmers In Nigeria by Bumhe(m): 1:59pm On Mar 24, 2009
I agree with the notion that an exclusive body of programmers should be set up. In some of the responses, someone mentioned Indians and Americans not being better than we and stuff. This I also agree with;but let me bring to the notice of concerned persons the need for us to make meaniful impact we need to look beyond java, C sharp, and the microsoft languages and hone our skills in the area of device programming and other low level stuff; only then will we not be playing a mere game of survival and feel good.
Re: Association Of Programmers In Nigeria by kencas: 4:29pm On Mar 24, 2009
i agree with the last comment.C is the best language as far am concerned.Lets start from here.I don't know whether any researcher in Nigeria have delved into exclusive research like GENETIC PROGRAMMING,GENETIC ALGORITHM,embedded systems,Real-time Interfacing system etc.Lets work together.We have the skills here in Nigeria.
Re: Association Of Programmers In Nigeria by handyx: 5:11pm On Mar 24, 2009

Re: Association Of Programmers In Nigeria by DisGuy: 9:11pm On Mar 25, 2009
I agree with AFAM!

now we are collaborating with media houses and NITDA to promote our Plights

it not just a talk of mouth, its reality.

You ideas are cool but what do they promote really? they promote your association as in
you want people to know you guys exist or you guy have products or are capable of producing them

WHY DONT YOU GUYS DEVELOP A SOFTWARE THEN DONATE IT TO A LOCAL SCHOOL OR LOCAL HEALTH CENTRE
YOU CAN ALSO DISPLAY HOW IT WORKS ON TV OR ON YOUTUBE!!

kudos
Re: Association Of Programmers In Nigeria by natura: 9:32pm On Mar 26, 2009
Thanks everyone. am really excited coming across an issue like this. Having been programming close to 10 years now, is really sad to see that one does not have a network of associate nationally to team up with. Basically, i suggest we get straight to action. first we create a forum site and register with appropriate bodies, then we go in search for sponsorship and carry out wide publicity. before we know it, we are controlling the world. Yes we can! Please lets get started now.

handyx:

Thanks for understanding that arguing this matter won't make sense. Wait and see what?

handyx:

ITAN are already working with us now!

Even if Obama and the owners of Google, Yahoo and Facebook begin to work with you on this issue without any tangible or reasonable demonstrable projects that shows that indeed our developers are not just pretending or claiming to be developers trust me there is nothing to look forward to.

I sincerely wish you good luck in this association thing.

Where are the applications that Nigerian developers are developing? Are they hidden in cupboards or what?
Re: Association Of Programmers In Nigeria by candylips(m): 10:11am On Apr 01, 2009
Why another association when you already have NCS.
Re: Association Of Programmers In Nigeria by handyx: 4:49pm On Apr 02, 2009
ask urself is NCS standing for programmers? NO

there is no organisation that stand out for US, so we are doing this 4 ourselves by ourselves.

the name Nigerian Association of Programmers (NAPs) is here to stay. pls put that at the back of your mind.

now the issue is that ITAN, NCS, and others are there but check them out they are just bunch of business men and not programmers. mark me!


we are programmers! we are here to revolutionizze the Software industry, so please take note:

to join our creed register at www.handyxinfotech.net/blog or chat with me live at www.handyxinfotech.net/chat. Cheers for the NEPsTizens!

Re: Association Of Programmers In Nigeria by trojand: 5:10pm On Jun 30, 2010
Coming together to form the association is good idea, but there must be some level of regulation.
Years of application design and coding experience, nature of coding experience ( i dont want to rub mind with guys that do copy and paste, or framework gurus)
You must have implemented full OO logic design with coding in C++/Java/ C# and any of the high level scripting language like python, perl, PHP,javascript with not less than 3 verifiable years of solid experience before you are eligible.
