Web Development is something I've tinkered with even while I studied to become a petroleum engineer. In fact, there's nothing that I would rather be doing with myself. I really just want to make an impact while doing what I love. Prior to learning to code,  one of my pet projects is Traffix.ng, an application which provides traffic updates to Lagosians by parsing and formatting tweets  into digestible, color-coded traffic alerts. If you like my energy, enthusiasm, and everything i’ve built over the last 12 weeks, imagine what we can build together 12 weeks from now!
