We were course mates in college and good friends. During the four year course we could do group discussions and work together in our assignments. Rails Girls Nairobi brought us together once more and we have since learnt to work together and improve each other. We both live in the same City and therefore meeting and working together is very convenient for us
This project will most helpful to the developers. With the new upgrade, It will be easier to refactor, remove deprecation warnings and most importantly sail a long and enjoy coding with the new code bases of Rails 5.
First, It is the motivation behind the project. Doing investigations on the Environment which is a very important factor for both living and non-living things to co-exist. Secondly, It is due to the community at Public Lab. They are very welcoming and easy to work with.
We are both ready and available to give our all during the 3 months period and also after the internship. We do understand and acknowledge that this is a serious commitment and we are ready to commit our time resource for the success of the internship. We do appreciate the benefits that come along with this internship and we would not like to waste such an opportunity.
