My name is David Melbourn Wampamba.
I use passion and optimism as tools to cultivate positive energy in each person I meet so that we achieve collective growth and progress.
I am passionate about teaching people Web Development and Content Creation.
What have I worked on?
I’m excited to share some of the work I have worked on.
Installed on 58.5M websites, WooCommerce, is a WordPress plugin that transforms any WordPress website into an e-commerce platform. Submitted open-source contributions such as Uganda Shillings currency and Uganda compatible billing and shipping address feature, which helps online shops increase in sales and deliver items effectively in Uganda.
Patasente.com – is an online platform where suppliers in Uganda get funded to deliver in time and pay later. As a server administrator and consultant, I’m charged with setting up, maintaining, and securing the production environment for the platform. It helps suppliers get funded in a few days instead of weeks or months.
Bigeye.ug – is an online leading entertainment news platform. As a full-stack developer, I play the role of server administration, front-end and back-end WordPress engineering since 2016. It helps more than 80K people per month, access the latest entertainment news for free, offers advertisement services that companies like MTN are embracing and offers jobs to young people in Uganda.
Flexibility – In 2015, I was invited to facilitate a workshop at Walukuba community event – Jinja. It gathered social artists of different walks of life from different parts of Uganda. On short notice I was requested to facilitate the workshop in Luganda instead of English in which I had prepared the presentation. Though it was a challenge, I successfully delivered. And on my occasions I try take action which aren’t primarily assigned to me, as long as they are within my capacity and can move us forward.
Teamwork – I love to work with others, it helps me learn from others and share my experiences with team mates. Regardless to say, team work gets work done faster effectively.
Effective Communication – Communicating effectively has given me opportunities to be a speaker at various tech events like WordCamp Kampala and Entebbe thus help hundreds if not thousands of technology leaders tap into my knowledge and experiences.
Self-drive – This gives me the ability to learn faster, go after opportunities and deliver as promised.
