Dallington Asingwire


Introduction

I am a professional software engineer and computer science instructor. and the founder of AgriX, Pivosoft, and Pivosoft Coding Academy. I graduated with First Class Honors as the top student in Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering from Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. Previously, I volunteered as a visiting lecturer at Makerere University through the support of my former professors. Currently, I am a lecturer at the International Business, Science, and Technology University, where I teach students from diverse social and cultural backgrounds.

My commitment is to harness technology to tackle societal challenges. Notably, I have built software applications for small and medium-sized businesses in Kampala, such as Kimote Maize Factory, Kakongoriro Stores, and Collection Hub. Additionally, I have collaborated with Vastel Health, a private health company, and designed Vastel, a mobile application that enables patients seek medical services through virtual consultations with medical professionals.


Background

From a young age, I aspired to become a resourceful scientist, inspired by the achievements of prominent figures such as Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, Neils Bohr, and Galileo Galilei. As an engineer, this inspiration continues to motivate me to create innovative and impactful solutions for society.

My engineering journey took shape in 2016 when several organizations adopted my first software system for use in their business operations. This success increased my confidence in my problem solving abilities and my capacity to provide solutions to the community. Subsequently, I was motivated to create more software projects, which have since been acquired by factories, hotels, and supermarkets, and others.

Soon after completing my internship at Bank of Uganda, I conceived the idea of developing software systems in teams. This concept has since materialized as Pivosoft, a software company that develops software and trains young Ugandans in computer programming.
