Cheering News: You can help shape Nigeria’s technology future. Take part in the IBM Lasgidi Hackathon on October 21-24, 2013, and move Nigeria’s digital revolution forward.
The IBM Lasgidi Hackathon themes are Mobile Payments and Smarter Government. This is your chance to take part in the exciting technology advances happening in Nigeria. You are invited to test your skills in a four-day IBM “hacking” event designed to get the smartest minds from Nigerian universities and business working to innovate around the event themes.
The first two days of the event will be spent on education, after which participants will have the opportunity to continue to the hackathon phase.
During these 4 days (8:00am – 6:00pm) at CcHUB, you will apply your technology skills and imagination to turn your ideas into solutions. As space is limited, participants should have a sufficient level of technology understanding to take part in the hackathon. During the event, university undergraduates, recent graduates, and developers will have access to leading IBM development platforms for mobile, cloud, and data, and participants will take home complimentary IBM-themed give-aways.
You will also have the opportunity to meet with IBM Human Resources personnel to discuss your career goals.
Don’t miss this chance to innovate with technical leaders from Nigeria’s top businesses and academic institutions. There are a limited number of spaces available, so don’t delay.
