Ranil Wallace – 2020 Calico Challenge Participant

We feature Ranil Wallace one of our 2020 Calico Challenge participants.

My name is Ranil Wallace, a 19 year old student of the University of Technology, Jamaica majoring in Computer Science. I am currently a member of UTech Sapna, a student organization originating from the University of Technology, Jamaica made up of student developers and aspiring developers. While being a member of UTech Sapna, I worked on the revamped UTech Jamaica Mobile app where I developed for the iOS variant, in addition to various internal enterprise tools used by the Government of Jamaica and the University of Technology, Jamaica.

This year, 2020, is my second time volunteering for the Palisadoes Foundation, with my first time being in Summer of 2019. Currently, my task is being a Backend Developer for the Talawa project, under the Calico Challenge.

While growing up, I have developed a variety of skills. For one, I am an excellent problem solver. I have extensive experience in HTML, CSS and Javascript along with frameworks such as Node.js and React-Native. For me, coding has been the best thing I have ever come across. I love that I can change the world by just creating software.
