Doing it the first time. Welcome to

What was it like, when you wanted to do something for the very first time? The desire to get it done well, to impress, to make a hit sometimes if not most times overrides the quality of result we produce.

The point is, we all are victims of “the first impression” syndrome and that includes me now trying to write my first official blog post. The fact that am doing this in 2014 makes it more weary and nervous.

Have you ever been late to a meeting? For Nigerians, it is an obvious and emphatic YES. In the first minutes of our arrival, we try to get ourselves together so we can have a complete feeling of what is happening. That is exactly how I feel now specifically for the fact that so much has been done in the blog sphere and in the tech community where I belong.

Here I am. Finally have come to blog even when I thought I will not. But trends and developments have changed that perception. But truth remains that I love writing and engaging people in profitable discussions. When I was a child, I could write about anything, discuss anything and by all means drag my friends into arguments. We learnt lessons from those stunts and seriously, I miss those moments

Setting out to become a player in the IT sphere, I see blogging as an indispensable attitude and a way of life not just to discussing technology but every other side of life that affects our existence as human. Though I am finding it difficult to put words together, so I can come out with something, I must confess that this is enjoyable and if consistently done, will go a long way to communicate my mind and things happening around me.

My name is Dimgba Kalu, a graduate of Computer Science.  I am an internet and technology entrepreneur, an ardent lover of codes. Interested in UI/UX, mobile technology, startups and technology for development.

Currently, I am the lead developer of (A country specific information portal) and founder of (African based technology news aggregate). I have also worked as a web and software developer for CADS Consulting Ltd, Aba

This is my blog and I look forward to share what I do, how I do them, and lessons learned from them.
