It's been great reading everything here so far. Took a few days though. lOl
It is not news that we are losing talents everyday to other countries or to remote jobs and once a dev goes remote (starts earning forex ), that guy will almost not take on any local projects again.
Devs have also become alarmingly expensive and they also know that they can't be working with startups for "ordinary stakes" anymore. and we may not realize this now, but GDP will suffer greatly!
To this end, I am working very closely with Findworka, Stutern, Printivo, and many other Startups in the ecosystem to train the new generation of talents using Basecode Academy.
Basecode will train, Findworka and Stutern will provide mentorship and grooming and we will throw these guys into the ecosystem to start taking on projects - we know they won't be topnotch as beginners but it is a start. - I also call for more collaboration in this space. Not everytime, competition. haba! - If we check closely, we all are working in silos in different bits towards the same goals.
