Earlier this year, in January, Andela announced our $100m Series D round. This was yet another symbolic validation of building a business with a purpose. Over the last four years, we have created an on-ramp to the global technology ecosystem for close to 1,200 African engineers, delivered excellent engineering services to hundreds of partner companies, and in the process, proven that brilliance is evenly distributed.

One of Andela’s core values is lifelong learning: Only by learning and iterating do we get to achieve our mission. One thing we’ve learned over the course of building Andela is that the global technology market is constantly changing. In order to best prepare African technologists to thrive in this market, we need to adapt and change with it.

This year, Andela will welcome 40% more aspiring developers than we did during all of last year. Andela Nigeria will reach 500 developers this month, Andela Kenya is well over 400 developers, Uganda is nearing 200 developers, and Andela Kigali welcomed our first two cohorts this year.

Now, as we prepare for the next phase of Andela’s growth, we are investing heavily in our talent development, learning technology, and developer growth programs. During this time, for the rest of 2019, we will be pausing Fellowship applications in Uganda and Kenya.

For aspiring technologists in Kenya and Uganda who are still committed to joining the Andela Fellowship this year, applications are still open every month for Andela Kigali, our pan-African hub. We also offer free online resources for anyone looking to level up their skills, and encourage all learners to join the  Andela Learning Community: a network of technologists across Africa dedicated to solving humanity’s problems with code.

To all of our learners and the community at large: Thank you for your contributions to Andela’s story. We are excited to continue supporting thousands of African technologists on their journey to becoming world-class engineers.
