Good to have you on my page, so the trending catchphrase now in Nigeria is “Tech is the new oil”: Very well, let us talk about it. First of all, when a Nigerian uses crude oil to describe the level of the wealthiness of a person, It means the person is vibrant. This is because Nigeria’s major source of revenue is Crude Oil. However, Technology seems to be taking over hence the statement ” Tech is the new oil,” Meaning tech is where the money at!!
I will use the new Big Brother Naija prime sponsorer and their associate as examples, Abeg & Patricia; they paid over a million dollars to big brother and outclassed the betting businesses previously in the game.
The general perspectives are that you have to be a programmer with in-depth knowledge of programming to be a part of this industry, but no, I’ll clear things for you in this article, see which part you can choose.
Tech is The New Oil; let us Talk About The Creatives.
These are the best tool to start with
Product designers make an average of 2000-4000$ per project. If you’re part of a product design team of a big tech company like Google, Facebook, and Uber, we are looking at a salary of $15k-$30k per month. Below is what a product design looks like
Tech is The New Oil; let us Talk About The Engineers.
This is where I belong in this industry. It consists of the software or the hardware engineers. The hardware engineers build the main thing, bring and collate the device or equipment body parts together; in your computer science in high school, they will tell you hardware are part of the computer system that can be seen and touched, I’ll use the device you’re using to read this post at the moment as an example.
In contrast, the software engineer builds the program that powers the hardware. Example: iPhone in itself is a hardware device, but what powers it is called iOS (a software) Samsung is a hardware device, but what powers it is (Android OS) Software engineers are responsible for writing this OS (0S- Operating System)
are helpful organization to start your coding journey for free, you can start with these languages;
- Node Js
- Java (Android)
- Swift (iOS)
- Html & CSS
- C C++
Use google resources and the Grasshopper app to learn, too; if you have money, buy courses on
Some of them are cheap, and that’s what I did when I started; I never had a physical teacher teach me coding. Part of the advantage you have is I’m always here for you. So you can always contact me if you run into problems or a Dev block.
Tech is The New Oil; let us Talk About The Analyst.
Analysts are mostly people that analyze performance data and study the progress of a certain product. Recommend improvements based on data available to them. This is the reason why you see updates on most apps like Twitter. They analyze our usage statistics and improve the app based on them. Data analysis is way easier to learn, and if you passed through a University, you must have done it in some of your statistical courses. Still, if you haven’t, try buying courses on it and getting your certificate, it can get you a job in the corresponding department.
