eneath all of the metal and the smooth moving parts, the hybrid engines that are bringing the US automotive industry back online are only possible thanks to innovative software applications. Unknown to some people, there are millions of lines of codes in today’s automobiles, thousands of lines of code in your coffee maker and hundreds of lines of code in your running shoes. The age where software development was just for geeks has long passed. It’s like saying that understanding how to pump gasoline is just for mechanics. It is time to enable the self serve pump for IT. In the 1500’s a family that did not have a farmer in it or someone to

farm for them was a doomed family. In the 1900’s the world was based on hard goods and manufacturing. A job at the factory or owning a steel mill meant great success and stability. That was yesterday. The world we live in today is fast paced, global and led by the speed of information. Actually, our world has always been dictated by the flow of information. In the past, a powerful few were able to restrict information from the masses to control the outcomes of their actions. In today’s fast paced world a piece of film caught by the cell phone of a user on the ground gives us deeper perspectives on current events then CNN, Fox News or BBC could ever hope to deliver. A message that has strength and resonates with the people can be sent by a slim curly

headed nerd in an instant. It then can be viewed, understood and acted upon, not by an entire nation, but an entire region of the world. The case of Wael Ghonim, the now known instigator of what the West calls the ‘Arab Spring’ will go down in history. It is an exercise in the Internet’s power to supercharge the will of the people in true democratic fashion. The power of the people leans towards progress and prosperity. It is time to accept that in today’s world, a Techie with a computer and an idea can enable freedom of choice, the growth of the economy and change the course of the world. We should take these events as a wake-up call that the power to change the world has shifted into the hands of the Techies.

When asked what were their hiring preferences for the technical staff that reported to them, the response was that experience and skill were the only two requirements of value. More valuable than a college degree, even still, was an industry level certification. Sergey added that if a junior developer wanted to get a job with him, he would like to see them have experience developing code for a large open source project that showed their abilities.

FLY HIGH MOLDOVA GeniusCorps chapter Moldova , home to the world’s first Twitter Revolution, comes online with high flying Nicolay Ciobanu

I

f asked, most people wouldn’t know what Moldova was. Nestled between Romania and the Ukraine it was once a country ruled by communism but now fighting it’s way to a more democratic way of life. A country where the youth of the society took a stand demanding change. A change from the old generation to a new generation. Moldova was the site of the world’s first twitter revolution. Four days after a corrupt election of a communist president, a group of

/nicolay.ciobanu anturaj.md

determined youth staged a protest turned revolution and as a result the parliament building was burned down and a democratic president was eventually elected. These actions were possible because of social media. The government has seen the change that social media and technology can bring. In the e-government office, notes on the board issued the use of social media to sway and influence the young people of Moldova.

Nicolay prepares for his first jump in the United States. Unlike Moldova the jump is over 5,000 feet higher

Moldova is now going from a hands on, manual government to a more technology integrated and savvy form of government.

Like the Moldova chapter, With minimal instruction Nicolay adapts to the change and sails in from the plane

PREP

SAILING

In 2012 Mr. Ciobanu came to the United States for a two week intensive training to open GeniusCorps Moldova. The new site will train youth both male and female to be the technological leaders of tomorrow. Moldova and the Moldovan people are ripe for this change. But the people are not technologically ready. That is the reason why Nicolay Ciobanu thought to help facilitate the change by partnering with GeniusCorps to create a Moldovan Chapter. Like its sister facility in Atlanta, GeniusCorps Moldova will be a residential program, teaching its students skills like HTML, javascript, CSS, and a host of many other coding and professional skills.
