Bulama Yusuf

My name is Bulama Yusuf and I am the CEO/founder of Intellectual Apps.

My passion for tech and building solutions got me to where I am today and the learning journey continues. As a software developer at heart, I currently lead the Google Developers Group (gdgabuja) in Abuja, Nigeria. I also speak on tech at local and international conferences. Check my LinkedIn profile.

I love figuring out how things work and building solutions. The world around me inspires me. I write on my blog once in a while and you can find me on Twitter

My interests in software cut across technical and people-related topics. I have led quite a number of software development teams and I have come to realize that the success of any team working on a product or project depends on a mix of technical and people management issues. These are the issues I write about here on my blog.

In 2011 I became a Sub-Sahara Africa semi-finalist at the Android Developer Challenge Competition organized by Google. Around the same time, I won a similar competition organized by Samsung. I have spoken on software architecture-related topics at international conferences in New York and London. Showing people the way to develop an enjoyable career is something I am interested in and I have served as a mentor on numerous programs and spoken on a couple of radio shows.

I have interests in software architecture, cloud computing, mobile app development, automation, etc. On the people side of things, I am interested in finding out how to get software development teams to perform at their best while being autonomous.
