Dallington Asingwire


Introduction

I am a professional software engineer and computer science instructor with four years of experience. Graduated as the best student with First Class Honors (4.53 out of 5) in Bachelors of Science in Software Engineering from Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. Previously volunteered as a teaching assistant at Makerere University through former professors. I'm a lecturer at the International Business, Science, and Technology University, where I teach students from various social and cultural backgrounds. Technically, I have designed and built dependable and scalable software systems by leveraging full-stack expertise and experience. Passionate about using technology to solve everyday problems and I've done so by designing and developing software applications, most notably e-docta whih enables patients to seek remote diagnosis and treatment.


Academic Interest

My primary research areas include computational science (biocomputation), artificial intelligence, and human-computer interaction. I am ravenously hungry for new knowledge and skills in the specified areas of research so that I can use them to achieve my ultimate goal. My ultimate goal is to become a distinguished computer science professor and researcher. My research will enable me to accomplish my ambition of revolutionizing the health care, education, and e-government systems in home country, Uganda and around the world.


Background

Dallington Asingwire was born in Ryenjoki, Kyangyenyi Sheema District, Western Uganda on November 16, 1996.

Dallington aspired to be a resourceful scientist from a young age, drawing inspiration from the accomplishments of renowned scientists such as Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, Neils Bohr, and Galileo Galilei. Even now, he believes that his ambition is still alive because he works in engineering, which was his childhood ambition. His motivation is his desire to influence the community through the development and implementation of innovative technology.

Dallington's first software system sale was $492, which bolstered his confidence in visualizing the magic of empowering and impressing the mind with the right input. Dallington was inspired to understand the need for every human life to have a sense of purpose rather than progress by Mark Zuckerburg's graduation speech at Havard University in 2017, and as a result, he has that level of desire, willingness, and enthusiasm to have a positive impact on many human lives in this world.

Soon after completing my internship at Bank of Uganda, I came up with an idea of developing software systems in teams, a concept that has evolved into Code Solutions Ltd, a software hub that has trained a significant number of young Ugandans in computer programming.

Time is one of the most valuable assets that humans can always put to good use, and Dallington enjoys putting his time to good use.

Education

Dallington graduated with honors and as the best student in Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering in May 2021 from Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. The Government of Uganda funded his undergraduate education after he emerged as one of the country's top students in the national high school examinations in 2016.

Prior to enrolling in the university, Dallington completed his Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE) at St. John's S.S. Nyabwina, where he was also granted a scholarship. He majored in PCM/ICT (Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Computer Studies) and obtained 18 out of 20 possible points, with an A in Mathematics, Bs in Physics and Chemistry, and 2 points for the auxiliary disciplines (General paper and computer studies).
Achievement: Emerged as the best student in the school, the entire district, and among the top students in the country.

From 2010 to 2013, Dallington attended Bugarama High School for Ordinary Level Education on a full scholarship, where he earned 14 aggregates out of 8 and was the top student in terms of overall school O-level achievement.

At Rweibaare Primary School, where he spent eight years, Dallington Asingwire began his academic career. He received an overall score of 7 out of 4, with a D1 in mathematics and D2s in science, English, and social studies. He was the best student and received a Primary Leaving Examination (PLE) Certificate.

    Project Description
    A secure layer for a desktop weather data repository As security becomes an increasing concern, data in a distributed environment is susceptible to inappropriate manipulation. Due to the significance of weather data, there was a need for mechanisms to protect this information from the time it is collected until it is used for forecasting and prediction. I was able to accomplish this by conducting research, designing, and implementing a secure layer for a desktop repository of weather data.
