Anthony Tendwa here. I'm situated in Nairobi, where I design and develop the future.
I've had a fascination with computers since I was a child. It all started with a strong interest in computer games, with Age of Empires being my all-time favorite. Kudos to the creators for coming up with such an amazing concept that a nine-year-old would come to love for years on end. It surely is a gem of its time!
From an early age I knew that I'd be pleased working in a computer-related industry. After dabbling in a variety of fields, website and web application development became my forte.
My interest and enthusiasm is especially piqued when applying design thinking to real-world projects and empowering people through the Human-Centered Design method. I appreciate uncovering user requirements, understanding stakeholder connections, and developing a unified experience that blends the problem-solving part of design with profound empathy for the user.
There are millions of people who are quite happy designing websites for various businesses and enterprises. That's OK, but it's not for me. I didn't learn to code to make dull stuff; I learnt to code to create killer websites for intriguing people.
Every individual, business, and institution, in my opinion, should have a fantastic website. Building your brand on social media is wonderful, but what happens when it becomes uncool (*cough* Facebook *cough*) and you lose all you've worked so hard to achieve?
That being said, it's a pleasure to meet you. My name is Anthony Tendwa. Let's make something amazing.
