Software developers should be encouraged and given incentives to develop applications which further enhance the educational experience

One way in which Digital Bangladesh has been a boon to our nation is the way local software developers have developed educational apps based on Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s life and achievements. 

These apps provide the people of this nation, young and old, to further educate themselves on the life and times of the Father of the Nation, and truly discover his ideologies, his accomplishments, and his contributions which led to the birth of Bangladesh.

This also highlights the immense potential that digitization has brought with it -- not only can we brush up on and rediscover the history of our country, but also create newer and more efficient avenues for learning in general.

We have already seen how certain apps have revolutionized the transport and finance industries, and they have immense potential in terms of revamping the rest of Bangladesh too. 

The education sector, especially, is one which can benefit greatly from apps such as these, and provide access to information and educational resources all over the country. 

Software developers should be encouraged and given incentives to develop applications which further enhance the educational experience of the young school-going and undergraduate population of the country, who are passionate about what they do, and about contributing to the overall development of our nation.

Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, who was so tragically stolen from us 43 years ago, imagined a Bangladesh that would one day stand tall and proud on the world stage.

And thanks to Digital Bangladesh, and by ensuring that we continue to take advantage of the incredible potential technology offers us, that dream is closer to reality now than it was ever before.
