Greetings from Ife, Nigeria

Hello Everyone,

I'm Tim Akinbo and I'm a student at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife in Nigeria. It's great to have stumbled across this learning group.

How did I get here? I was doing a search on Google Groups for discussions on mobile applications development and I came across a post by Mr. Ajit Jaokar on Open Gardens. I remembered visiting the blog some time ago and I found a link to this site from his Ecademy profile. I'm currently studying Electrical and Electronics Engineering and I plan to go into the Mobile Applications industry when I graduate.

Nigeria is a country that has experienced phenomenal growth in the mobile telecommunications industry and in just four years, annual growth rates have exceeded even those in a lot of European countries. I've had interests in mobile applications for a number of years and I'm hear to contribute and provide a view from the Nigerian/African viewpoint and also learn a lot from you all.
