    WordCamp Harare 2017Speaker: Sizo Sinyolo

    December 25, 2017 — As much as the world is evolving, one thing is still lagging behind which is the number of women advancing in the technological world. Since the last WordCamp Harare i then realized that gender affects your clientele and women’s approach to finding clients and venturing into the freelance business should be designed a bit different from usual. On this talk I offer the skills that i realized can make freelance women standout and be able to compete with the rest in such an evolving economy. The talk also highlights my experiences in the year trying to get into the industry.

    Sizo Sinyolo: When Time Says No, WordPress Says Yes

    WordCamp Harare 2016Speaker: Sizo Sinyolo

    January 3, 2017 — Beginning of this year I honestly wouldn’t be able to explain to anyone what WordPress is. I had never used WordPress until pressure mounted on me as an internship student , the company wanted the website up and running within a week. As a student who had told them “I know how to create a website”, I couldn’t give an excuse and there was no way out. Later on that day I researched on the easiest way to make an e-commerce website within a day and I learnt about WordPress. Now I can advertise website design and earn a little extra income and my boss is impressed and still talks about efforts put to meet the website deadline. My boss even offered we come back after school and make systems and another website for their subsidiary company.
