We had the opportunity to speak with Allan Rwakatungu the founder and CEO at Xente Limited to share with us his experience on working with Refactory students. When the concept of bootcamp was shared with him, he was skeptical to hand over a sensitive project to junior software developers.
However, his doubts were all put to rest when he learnt that they were eager to learn. So, when he had a one-on-one session with them, he learnt of their aspirations and why they were interested in the project. “I assigned them mentors who walked the journey of ushering them into the company to allow them familiarize with the project and what was required of them.”
The team, Olive Nakiyemba, Declan and Oketayot Julius were indeed up for the task as they were able to deliver a well-built SDK that was meant to help e-businesses receive cashless payments using the Xente App payment collection API.
"I would recommend Refactory to all those looking to work with young, hungry junior developers because the quality of students that come out of the program are well grounded not just with technical skill but with the right soft skills needed I the tech industry. I definitely look forward to having an even better collaboration with Refactory for our future projects." Allan concluded
