Olive Nakiyemba


“Never say no to an adventure!” - Ian Fleming

An avid traveler, writer, and a lover of languages, Olive has 6 years’ work experience in radio and writing for various media houses. She is relatively new to the tech scene and has taken a keen interest in software development to gain the skills in front-end development, as a first step to becoming an all-around user experience specialist. One day, she’s going to lead a team of developers in creating a disruptive application.

Skill profile:

  • HTML 5, CSS
  • JavaScript, NodeJS
  • MySQL
  • Teamwork, Leadership, Communication

Any previous projects accomplished and/or work experience:

  • UG Trainee, BBC Africa Focus on Africa on the Road
  • US Writer, The Africa Channel Los Angeles, US Writer
  • Radio One FM 90 Kampala, UG Producer


By the end of this year, I want to be a well rounded competent programmer with a live project or two that I will have contributed to immensely and picked up more skills that I would confidently use to work on both back and front-end.

Ultimately, I want to be an engineer that’s recognized for Front-end Development skills..
