Blockchain & Cryptocurrency

Blockchain experts will be on ground to teach and present their papers.

Even though Blockchain technology is still relatively new, many countries around the world are already using it to improve their economies. The technology provides its network participants with a shared, immutable history of transactions, records that cannot be altered once they’ve been agreed upon through consensus and added to the ledger. Africa needs to get ahead of these technologies if we are going to be part of the next frontier in the tech world. If you are interested in these fields, register here.


Hardware & IOT

Producing hardware in Africa is hard, is there a way out?

Due to the high cost of manufacturing and setting up of Infrastructure in Africa, a lot of young tech engineers and entrepreneurs opt for software startups rather than hardware. We are on a mission to understand how hardware can work in Africa.


Developers & Future of Work

A deep dive into all things programming

Tech talent is one of Africa’s biggest exports to the world, as there are African developers in almost every major tech ecosystem in the world.  Meanwhile, talents back home are looking for opportunities to offer their services for foreign gigs.

During this session, we hope to close the gap between local talents abroad and those back home by creating conversations around the opportunities that abound.


E-governance & Policies

Focusing on policy issues, and how politics plays a role .

Africa is the world’s second-largest and second-most-populous continent. Africa has attracted substantial support in the past decade from foreign tech players in terms of funding, infrastructure and training. However, governments need to play a major role in scaling technological advancements across Africa. We need government policies that would aid technological disruption across Africa.

Cloud Computing & Gaming & SaaS
