Interview With Author George Steve
Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
Hi! I’m George Steve. I am the founder of Emenwa and we publish under the name Emenwa Global. I publish my personal storybook under the name George Steve. I’m a developer with a serious love of sharing my skills and knowledge with my fellow developers and beginners in the industry. I have spent my years as a lead instructor in computer programming and I have enjoyed most part of my life doing live training with over hundreds of students. I derive joy in building the next generation of software and hardware developers who do amazing things in the industry today. I led the team of developers who participated in Forbes’ “Under30 Change the World Challenge”, judged by a panel of professionals at Wharton school of the university of Pennsylvania in 2015.
My love for computer programming in my early stage in life got me into Java, C, C#, C++, Python, MikroC, Arduino, and lots of other programming languages and embedded system designs. I began to think that I’m crazy until I started developing advanced projects for clients and getting amazing job offers from reputable companies across America, Asia and Africa.
The worst part of my life as a software developer is seeing myself coding always in my dreams.
The best part of my life as a software developer is NOT building advanced and complicated projects with different programming languages combined together. But, building the next generation of software developers and seeing them excel in the industry like myself and other senior developers around me. I am always happy each time my students get across to me to tell me how they successfully got employed by one reputable firm or the other, and how they pick up fast in their respective companies to become senior developers with mouth-watering salaries!
I write beautiful stories for my kids for fun. I have just one storybook now at the moment.
