Programming: The Language of the Building Blocks of our Future

To communicate with the people of a nation, we must first speak the language. To build a digital infrastructure, it is no different. With the advent of technology, it is imperative for the a programmer to be fluent in code before they can understand the building blocks of digital infrastructures.

A typical day out for Michael


Through this stint, Michael is able to add a human element to his work experience and interactions which will serve well for him when he steps into a specialised IT-related field. It will require not just his technical proficiency in IT but also the tenacity of managing talents who run it.


Whilst most of us can understand English, a language that has brought the world closer together, it isn’t so for the language of technology, a language that transcends cultural and language barriers beyond borders. Michael speaks the lingua franca of the future, and sees how people can better connect with each other through technology.
