The Internet (especially Google) is an immense learning resource. It is akin to finding a needle in a haystack on one hand as well drinking from a firehose (or water tanker) on the other hand. Getting started with technology (to save one's life) can be very daunting. In Africa, where there is a lack of critical infrastructure - power, Internet, food, shelter, clothing etc. - the challenge is amplified. This session will in a very opinionated way, guide participants on how to "Get Started in 7 Days" and become a sought-after rock star technology professional in just a few years.
