It is said that the computer is nothing without a software. In view of this, to be able to use a computer and execute task efficiently, one needs a software to facilitate the execution of tasks with a computer.

Softwares are created by individuals with knowledge on computer coding and programing. The ability to input characters that the computer can interpret and produce an end product for serving a given purpose is critical for developing programs for solving problems.

Additionslly, in this age of technological intrusion, it has become critical that every country that seeks to guard classified information from the reach of unauthorised persons need to develop their own unique programs in their local languages to protect data.

Chinese national systems are impenetrable because they were written in the Chinese language. Russia could enter US systems prior to the 2916 elections because they were written in the English language which is pretty much universal. South Africa and a number of African countries are developing their unique programs like the Chinese to protect their privacy as sovereign nation. Ghana needs same.

Speaking at the launch of the program, Ghana’s First female Professor of Quality Assurance and Author, Prof Goski Alabi called on Ghanaians at all levels of education to take advantage of the program and the empowering skill the course offers that does not only brighten their chances of landing a job but also puts them in a position to set up their own businesses.

Prof Goski who is a Member of the School’s Board indicated that there was the need for educational institutions to empower people with hands-on employable skills to make them fit into the job market or succeed as entrepreneurs.

Taking advantage of the opportunity to learn a new skill, The UPSA Dean of Centre for International Education and Collaboration participated in the first day of lecture and didn’t miss the opportunity to ask questions and making input when the need presented itself.

She advised Ghanaians to accept challenges and always take advantage of opportunities to learn new skills.

Participant were made to pay an amount of Two Hundred Ghana Cedis (GHc 2000) which will be used for refreshment and snacks during the training.|

She indicated the Coding Clinic is just one of the many short-courses that the school will introduce to empower individuals and also train businesses on modern ways of doing things and more
