Hi, I am so happy that you are reading this. I am Evance Soumaoro, I am a software engineer from Conakry (Guinea). I have been programming professionally for more than 10 years, and I am still loving it. On the left, it’s me and my wonderful son Alexandre :heart:.

Prior to my current position, I worked as a software developer at eHealth Africa where I focus on developing public health surveillance apps, as well as disease outbreak response systems in West Africa. With my experience with NGOs, I currently act as software development consultant for the World Bank in the West African region.
