My Bio

Akin Shode was born on the 2nd of June 1984 in Nottingham, United Kingdom and currently resides in South Africa.

After matriculating with distinctions in several subjects including Computer Science, he went on to get his BSc. Honours degree in Computer Science from the University Of Natal, Durban in 2004.
In 2002 he was inducted into the Golden Key International Honour Society in recognition of his outstanding scholastic achievement and excellence.

In 2006 he co-founded CodeWrite cc, an IT company providing software development services ranging from web-based solutions to security access control systems software that integrated various security devices like digital cameras and digital fingerprint readers.

In 2014, he developed a SaaS (Software as a Service) solution that enables Internet Service Providers (ISP) to get technical accreditation for domains, thus enabling and giving the ISP rights to provision said domains. The web-based solution automatically performs and runs all the necessary code and commands against the ZA Central Registry (using the Extensible Provisioning Protocol) on behalf of the ISP, resulting in the ISP passing the technical accreditation tests within minutes at the click of a button.

In 2017, he became a Xamarin Certified Mobile Developer, with the burning desire to provide value for companies of any size using the unique benefits that mobile apps present.
