Solving Hard Things: Femi Senjobi's Developer Journey
Before joining Andela, Femi Senjobi worked as a freelance developer, digital marketer, and content creator. "I worked mostly with WordPress. However, I build a number of applications from ground up using PHP/MySQL and frameworks like code igniter. I did a little bit of graphic designing, at least enough to pass my message.""First, it was one field I thought was exciting enough to task my creativity and problem-solving ability. I studied computer engineering and I thought hardware was a bit too clumsy for me. Software was the next best thing. Fewer people did software and I wanted to see what scared people away."
