Thehatch, innovation lab of Inlaks, a leading IT solutions provider, has commenced its 3-months software programming training for graduates under the auspices of thehatch Code Academy. Although initially scheduled to begin in April, the training was postponed due to the global pandemic situation. Now, 15 shortlisted participants have begun thehatch coding boot camp online.
The academy aims to equip students with new programming skills through flexible online courses, peer-based tutoring and project assessment.

According to Femi Adeoti, MD/CEO, Inlaks, Africa operations, thehatch innovation lab is exercising its capacities to support the growth of the African technology ecosystem.
“The code academy was established to enhance capacity building, mentorship, and networking that will serve as building blocks for the next generation of software developers. By training young graduates in the requisite programming skills, we are not only securing a future for them but also promoting the creation of African made technology with a special focus on the social, economic and environmental sectors,” Adeoti said.
Speaking at the induction, participants expressed their expectations from thehatch coding bootcamp:
Abdulquadir Ahmad Ayobami said: “I expect that by the end of the 12th week, I would have honed up my programming skills, learned from the industry’s best so I can build an innovative project that solves a societal problem and more importantly contribute a quota to the Nigerian economy. I also hope to have a long-lasting network with other brilliant and innovative minds and see how we can bring about the Nigeria of our dreams using technology.”
