This is Andela’s inaugural public office hours initiative dubbed “Ask Engineers Anything”. We will be inviting Senior Engineers and Tech Experts across the globe to join us on a monthly basis to share, with engineers in the tech community, their engineering craft, experiences and lessons picked up from the years they’ve been in the industry.

This is a less formal, more intimate session, that gives participants an opportunity to engage with the guest speakers on a wide range of topics in the tech industry.

How it works:

  1. We will be sharing a brief bio of the guest speaker(s) here.
  2. You RSVP at the end of this page to join the session.
  3. Then, drop your question(s) on the form below to allow us to queue them up in advance.
  4. PS: You can also ask your question live during the session!

Come ready to learn, share, and engage as we Ask Engineers Anything!
