So I started this podcast...

My friends started calling me The Nomad because I would travel all over Ghana from makerspace to makerspace just to talk to developers to gather ideas and perspectives. I figured the Tech Atmosphere in Ghana is greatly advancing. And at the heart of this advancement is the magical, intimate revelations of the youth. But this driving force is greatly sabotaged by Self Doubt, Little Support, Fewer Known Mentors, and the Lack of an Active Tech Community.

So I started this podcast to provide


Get developers in touch with projects around them and a means to connect with the developers building those projects.


Get pro tips from experts, founders and executives in areas of interest as they share their journey.

episode #4: Creating Your Own File Formats

| file formats customize software zip file extensions dotlearn custom files | Sam Bhattacharyya

The idea of having your own file formats seem very strange in 2018, but back in the earlier days of computing, this wasn’t a strange thing at all. Most people are familiar with typical file formats like mp4 for video, mp3 for audio, pdf or docx for documents. Those seem quite fixed and most people have never found weird file formats unless you use specialty software.

episode #3: The Linux Terminal Server Project

The problem most systems administrators face with setting up home, office, or organizational infrastructure is security. If you are the one paying for this kind of setup, then it becomes an even bigger headache. What you probably want is a cost effective, more secure Linux Terminal Server which greatly improves value over traditional computing systems.
