Fintech/financial services(banks, payments gateways, switch, etc) companies play a crucial role in our daily lives. Their importance can’t be overemphasised.

In most cases, it could be a matter of life and death.

Bad things could/can happen when transactions fail.
We spent 98% of March in the hospital(story for another day) and one of those days, a family brought in a little baby(<= 1 month old). Hospital wouldn’t admit unless a deposit was made(deposits starts from N150K for most hospitals).
Family was left in the reception while they waited for a transaction to clear. They had one of those transaction declined but account debitted error.

Hospital wouldn’t do a thing - hands are tied. Baby’s father was mad confused. This was almost 5PM and a weekend.

On Faith - What I learnt from my son.

One of the things I enjoy most is picking Lee from school. I love the 10 minutes conversation that ensues on our drive back home. I love it.
It’s an opportunity to get to learn about his day; who fell on the playground, who didn’t wear their masks or face shield properly, or who was generally naughty in class.
As I drive, I try to turn around to watch him speak. He speaks with so much enthusiasm and honesty. His eyes grow wide and his smile would swallow a banana. The best part, he loves showing off his daily reward from performing well in class; a sticker. He gets one of these daily.

People think just “disappearing” on their parents and guardians for days is fun and living life on the fast lane? What happens when you get in real trouble?

Life is stressful enough, don’t add to any more stress. Be a responsible human, for once.
It seems the people doing this aren’t parent/guardians themselves.

You probably need to go through the stress of parenting to understand how wicked your actions are. And no, your parents aren’t overreacting for freaking out.
My chairman and I went out one day, he fell asleep and I left him in the car for all of 90 sec, when I came back, he slid and I couldn’t see his head from the shields. My heart skipped, I froze, goosebumps covered me and I walked to the car and found him sleeping comforably.

I had said this before and I’m saying it again, I stopped responding to PRAYER FOR THE NATION a few years ago. It doesn’t make sense. It’s almost as if we are mocking God. You can’t pray you way out of stupidity. You have to work. “Faith without work is dead - James 2:26"
Do I have anything against those praying? Not at all. Do I pray? Absolutely, but when I pray, I put in the work, trusting that He will increase the works of my hands.
We have done enough praying as a nation. It's time to work. Strategic work with a long term plan. You don't pray your way out of poverty, you work your way out of it.

There’s this thing that most Nigerians(Nigerians because these are only the people that have done this repeatedly to me), do in the name of care that gets under my skin. I think it’s both wicked and manipulative.
I was speaking with a friend who recently got married and the first thing I told him was never to allow himself or his wife be pressured into making children immediately.
Most people are quick to remind you that they are yet to hear the cry of a baby after 9 months of marriage. But these same people will never ask "how are you doing? How is life? Is there anything I can help with?"

Every now and then, I’ll get a DM from a software engineer asking me how they can become senior engineers and generally grow their careers. I will try to answer that in this thread.

Grab a glass of something lite, class is in session.
First and foremost, I generally believe what qualifies a person as a “senior engineer” is the kind of problem and breadth of problems that they have dealt/dealing with and not generally length of time.
For instance, if you work in a fast pace env and generally get thrown into deep problems, you’re more likely to grow faster interms of experience and battle scars than someone who, for instance, couples templates for a living. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with that.
