App Development

Students will work with MailChimp developer, Osa Gaius, to build cross-platform compatible mobile apps that solve fun and relevant problems. We will use the Javascript framework React Native to develop apps for Android and iOS devices. By the end of the course, you will be familiar with how to build and launch a real app on a small software team. The program will be hands-on, fast paced, with the goal of having all students build a prototype or working app by the end of the course.

Some previous coding experience would be ideal. HOWEVER, fast learners in STEM fields with no previous experience should email to assess the suitability of the program prior to applying.

Osa Gaius Obaseki TNS-X Instructor

Osa Gaius writes software at Mailchimp. Previously, he was an engineer at Luma, where he worked on realtime web apps and spread the word about functional programming. In his free time, Osa crafts EDM instrumentals and dances Tango.

“I strongly believe that great technology should have a global impact. This stems from the fact that I grew up in Nigeria with little exposure to the consumer internet. That experience now fuels my resilient curiosity.

For the last six years, I have focused deeply on web technologies, machine learning, and robotics. I have built and deployed complex systems in various programming languages, and aim to use these skills in the creation of a more open and generous world. I am currently seeking opportunities at bleeding-edge technology companies solving problems that will positively impact users around the globe. In particular, I am interested in opportunities that will allow me to utilize my experience as a speaker, thinker and technologist.”
