5 minute quick read
I am a 22 year Old boy from South Africa. I have been learning the concepts behind Software programming for almost 2 months now by myself on Youtube,Wikipedia and some github documentations.
On my journey I stumbled across Dart and Flutter and have since been obsessed about learning how to program. However due to our financial situation in South Africa we cannot afford to learn the concepts behind programming. However with me I ask for help from people like you because i know my financial situation will not deter me from learning how to program. I am confident that you can help one young man in South Africa gain at least one important resource and that is the Macintosh Machine from Mid 2015. The newer versions are not suited for software engineering in my opinion. Elon Musk is from my City(Pretoria) just as a side note. He is an inspiration to us young boys in South Africa. We may lack the resources but we love humanity and we want to improve the world using Technology and Software.
I have been learning the history of programming from the days of Liebniz to ancient philosophies such as yin and yang in relation to the string notations of binaries.
I have been learning obsessively from Youtube about Object orientated languages however I am most impressed by functional programming. Dart is a Multi paradigm language thus it offers the best of both worlds. I love the concepts of asynchronous concepts and the concept of reactive programming. Believe me Children in Africa do not know about Software programming. I am one of those few Children who can teach these people about using Firebase and Google cloud because we do not have the infrastructure here to store large pieces of data. I want to teach poor South Africans about the internet and how it can be best used to improve their lives. I love Humanity.
I want to regularly contribute in the Open Source environment of Dart and give suggestions to the team at google Flutter on further improvements to this beautiful piece of Art called Flutter. I want to be apart of the beta generation of Dart and firebase programmers in the world before it blows up and becomes mainstream like Java and Python. I am still young and very broke for now. However you can help just one person in South Africa further improve his knowledge on Software programming for the betterment of humanity.
The reason i chose the Macbook Pro Mid 2015 version is because the newer versions are not suited for Software engineers. The first reason is that the keyboards apparently are like touch screen phones and they also brake quickly. I also did not like the concepts of touch bars because to me its unnecessary as a future Software Engineer.
I also want to practice using the Dart Pad so that I can get a feel of programming for the first time.
I am currently reading the documentations by google on Github and I am slowly grasping the concepts of Dart and Programming as a whole.
Can you please either Donate a Macbook Machine mid 2015 version to me or donate 10 dollars or more so that I can purchase a new Macintosh Machiene on Amazon. Either option will help me ,however, the amazon purchase option is a better option for me because they can deliver directly to my doorstep. I would kindly request that if you cannot donate any money due to financial constraints then please share this message or retweet it. This will greatly help me in getting the exposure this campaign needs.
Your tiny 10 dollars or more will go a long way in helping the global tech community with fresh perspectives and ideas from South Africa.We want to also contribute in Github. We want to join the discussion on Github and be apart of the Global Tech community. I lack the resources due to my circumstances. However all I need is a Macintosh Machine and the interment for my contributions to be appreciated by the Global Tech Community.
If you prefer to contact me in private please email me at [email protected] Please contact me if you would want to know more about me and how you can best assist me going forward.
Otherwise I really appreciate your time in reading this and hopefully sharing this message and if you donated any amount to me. I want to say to you that I will use your funds for the betterment of humanity by applying my mind and soul into creating a world where technology is beneficial to humanity not destructive.
With great power comes great responsibility.
