usandaRealm Digital is a Developer Intern richer since Usanda Mpengesi joined the team.

19-year-old Usanda joins us after matriculating last year from the Centre Of Science And Technology (COSAT) in Cape Town.

It was here that his passion for technology was ignited, and he decided that he definitely wanted to pursue a career in technology.

I’ve always loved technology and innovation, and knew that I would be in the IT sector, but wasn’t sure exactly I’d be doing. I then attended COSAT, and they offered IT as a subject. I fell in love with programming. It was here that I had the opportunity to innovate and create apps that can make daily living easier”, says Usanda.

Here at Realm, he will be training in the area of PHP, working mostly on Angular and TypeScript.

On why he wanted to join the Realm team, “Realm is small, but are moving mountains in terms of the projects they’re working on. I knew that coming to a smaller company would make it easier for me to grow, as I’m still very young”.

When he’s not behind a computer screen, he is chasing a ball on the basketball court, and producing music to uplift local talent.

Welcome Usanda, great to have you with us!
