Lessons Learned After Two Years of Teaching Software Development

In the summer of 2015, I got an email from my ex teacher. He wanted to know if I would like to teach software development in school. A few months later I was 21 years old (being by far the youngest teacher in the school – or in the entire country?) and found myself teaching software development in a class room at HTL Dornbirn. I lowered my working hours at the company I worked at that time from 100% to 90%.

How I fixed my development computer when I lived in a very rural area in Bolivia

As I’m writing this, I’m in San Ignacio De Velasco, a small town in a rural area in the Santa Cruz state in Bolivia, which is located in the east lowland of the country. My job here is to teach “IT” to the kids in the school. Some of them have never used a personal computer before and have a background of poverty. Since I’m a software developer, of course I brought my “mobile workstation” with me.
