Welcome to the Coursera Community, @DickJoe! In case you haven't seen it already, you can meet some of our other community members here: New to the community? Introduce yourself here! You'll find many other lifelong/passionate learners here!

By the way, I lived in rural South Africa (western part of the Mpumalanga province) from 2006–2008. I had the opportunity to visit Cape Town twice during my time there. It's a unique city!
I just heard that Cape Town is supposed to be one of the most beautiful places in the whole world! It’s so good to meet you,@DickJoe .
@Laura , what an amazing experience you must have had to have lived there. Now I understand why you know music from that region. 😀
@DickJoe
Good work! Are you using some of the study and memory tips?
My husband lived and worked in South Africa for a few years, close to Kruger. Over the past 25 years he was there many times for work, also in Botswana, Mozambique, Kenya, Uganda and Ethiopia. We both lived in Zimbabwe in the 80s. Also a lovely country then.
Enjoy ‘collecting’ knowledge!

@Lochcarron I am really enjoying the cutting edge approach and is executing habit 7 of Dr Coveys classic “Sharpening the saw” Personal development is a continuous WIP and I am trying each tip and if it works will include it in my arsenal.

Greetings, My name is Frank Mwonga from Nairobi Kenya. This is my sixth year since my graduation B.Sc. in Electrical & Electronics Engineering. After 6 years as a Technical supporter and trainer in Consumer Electronics field, I've discovered that every consumer Electronics manufacturer is now investing in their in-house tech or partnering with Big Tech one way or another (LG with Google Assistant for their new Home speakers, Smart AI in the New OLED Wallpaper TVs, Samsung with Bixby and so much more... So my enrolling for this certification was a no-brainer. I took this course to improve my skills in preparation for the fourth Industrial Revolution - the Second Machine Age.
