    Tinkerer, techie, teacher: Meet Dara Oladapo

    • 11 Comments

    Dara Oladapo, Microsoft Student Partner from Nigeria

    In 2002, Dara Oladapo walked with his two older brothers to the local cybercafé in Ibadan, Nigeria. The three boys went to the café intending to open a joint email account. There, Dara’s brother taught him how to hold the mouse, click on the screen and navigate around Windows.

    That was the first time Dara touched a computer. He was 10-years old.

    • Publish a Web App to Azure using Visual Studio
    • Enabling Continuous Integration with Azure Web Apps & GitHub
    • Publish a Web App to Azure using FTP

    Several Microsoft Student Partners from Belgium recently attended TechDays 2015 in Paris, an intense, information-rich mega conference that offers non-stop sessions that last all day. This highly attended conference focuses on exposing IT pros to a new technology (in a day or two) so they have the confidence to deploy and then implement the technology wherever they work.

    But why should students like you, who might not have started a career yet, attend TechDays?
