This is the official website for Mukalele Rogers (Mr.)

Mr. Mukalele Rogers, a Teacher at Kololo Senior Secondary School, Kampala, guiding Students using computers in a computer Lab. Digital Education is on the rise in Uganda

I am a multi-skilled and proactive Information Technologies Specialist that has established a track record of competence in providing services concerning Computer Training, Web development, Programming, System Administration, Database Management, Networking and ICTs in general.

My first formal job was at Jinja College where I worked as a computer laboratory attendant and later on as a computer studies teacher.  This position laid a strong foundation for me in the field of ICT. I was responsible for maintaining a neat and functional school computer lab, handling hardware and software installations, troubleshooting and configuring computer systems and networks and enforcing Computer Laboratory rules and regulations. The laboratory had over 100 computers networked by a LAN consisting of both wired and wireless devices. I also published two books entitled, ‘Computer Studies for Uganda’ and ‘Lab Activities for Computer Practical Applications’, which are still currently being used by thousands of teachers and students in schools across the country.

I am currently working as a web developer, programmer and trainer/mentor at ITPlus Solutions Limited. I  have undertaken a number of projects involving web based data visualizations powered by JavaScript Libraries.  I am a mapper who has been contributing to Open Street Maps since 2015 and I worked as an OpenStreetMap surveyor, using OpenMapKit, GPS units, JOSM and ODK android apps for data collection.

While at University, I held a number of leadership positions such as the position of Campus Minister for Information and Computer Technology. In my final year, I undertook the popular Sharebility Uganda project – the educational digital resource sharing system for Uganda Schools. In February 2017, I emerged as the best performing graduate in science based disciplines during the Makerere University 67th Graduation, having obtained a CGPA of 4.91 in Bachelor of Information Technology.
