Dallington Asingwire


Introduction

I am a passionate Software engineer with 3+ years of experience. Graduated as the best student with First Class Honours (4.53 out of 5) in Bachelors of Science in Software Engineering, class 2021, Makerere University Kampala, Uganda. I've proven ability to leverage full-stack knowledge and experience to build reliable and scalable software systems. A dedicated lecturer at ISBAT University teaching students from social and cultural backgrounds.


Academic Interest

He is primarily interested in advanced software engineering, and applied cryptography and computer security. I therefore intend to pursue these programs to gain knowledge and understanding as much as I can and implement software systems that will help solve world problems like climate change.


Background

Dallington Asingwire is a male Ugandan who was born on 16th November 1996 in Ryenjoki, Kyangyenyi Sheema District, Western Uganda. He was born to Sentara Dallington, father and Ninsiima Annet, mother.

Right away from his childhood,Dallington ever wanted to be a resourceful scientist and he drew this from the inspirational works of the several world great scientists like Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, Neils Bohr and Galileo Galilei. Even up to date, he feels his dream is still alive given the fact that he is in a field of engineering, a field that he grew as a field of dream.What drives him is his passion to influence the community through designing and implementing innovative technologies.

Dallington's first sale of his one of software systems was $492 and this drastically boosted his confidence to visualize the magic of empowering and impressing upon the mind, the right input.
Mark Zuckerburg graduation speech at Havard University, 2017 inspired Dallington to understand the need for every human life to have a sense of purpose rather than progress and so he has that degree of desire, willingness and enthusiasm to have a positive impact on many human lives in this world.

Dallington looks forward to establishing a Tech company that will engage many young Ugandans to attain skills and knowledge whose use will hinge on changing the world through technology to be a better place to live for every human life. He as well intends to become one of the greatest professors in the Tech industry and he believes that through this role, he will inspire many Ugandans to realize and have a sense of purpose.

Time is one of the great resources human beings can always put to maximum use and so does Dallington,likes using his time to do resourceful work.
