Corporate Clients

The website was recently awarded an ISO standard for ease of use by clients. •International Republican Institute

IRI is a US based NGO whose mandate is to promote civic education in developing countries. They required a portal for users to access a simplified version of the new constitution via both web, mobile and sms channels. The content is accessible via the shortcode 20108 on both Safaricom and Airtel for free.
FIDA required a portal for the common mwananchi to report acts of violence or abuse against women via sms. We developed http://www.semauskike.org/

to allow any kenyan to unanimously report these incidences via shortcode 22123 on Safaricom and Airtel whereupon our system maps the report on a Google map of Kenya and forwards the report to the nearest police station for action to be taken.

ELOG approached us to migrate their website to secure cloud servers in anticipation of dedicated denial of service (DDOS) attacks over the recently concluded 2013 general elections. We successfully deployed it on Amazon AWS servers which provided 100% uptime despite numerous DDOS and other malicious attempts on it. We also updated the site content with relevant election reports and data following a successful election observation exercise. Other websites include

CodePamoja

Ke-01.jpg CodePamoja is a vocational training program where Kenyan developers learn how to work to international quality standards using the latest project management techniques. The training focuses on complementing technical skills acquired from undergraduate level training with up-to-date project management experience and exposure to Enterprise Software Development techniques. CodePamoja trainees learn by collaborating with developers in the EU on real projects. This is a unique opportunity to gain experience in the latest project management methods and software tooling by working with more experienced developers - people who have worked on some of the largest software development projects in Europe. CodePamoja uses a buddy system where Kenyan developers collaborate with developers in the Netherlands in Virtual Teams. The emphasis is on knowledge sharing and there is no set training agenda or syllabus. People attending CodePamoja can work part-time or full-time, with reasonably flexible hours. Typically someone will attend CodePamoja for around three months depending on skills levels. Multiple projects can be in progress at any one time, people may work on more than one project simultaneously and may join projects at any stage in their lifecycle from design to deployment. The virtual teams and projects are coordinated using Scrum, which means regular meetings and discussions to review project progress. After attending the CodePamoja program developers will understand how modern systems are built using Enterprise software development techniques. An understanding of the importance of teamwork will have been developed. Attendees will have learnt how to produce high quality software and keep up with rapid development cycles by making use of Agile methodologies and Scrum. Technical skills will be enhanced through exposure to tooling (e.g. git, Grunt, Gulp, SASS). Programming skills will be enhanced depending on needs and wishes of the individual.
