Nigeria’s Co-Creation Hub (CcHUB) today announced it is partnering with IBM for the Lasgidi Hackathon, which will have the themes of Mobile Payments and Smarter Government
In a statement, CcHUB said participants can help shape Nigeria’s technology future and move the country’s digital revolution forward by participating in the IBM Lasgidi Hackathon, which will be held from October 21 to 24.
“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 statement said.
“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 the hackathon, participants will use their technology skills to turn their ideas into innovations.
“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 giveaways. You will also have the opportunity to meet with IBM Human Resources personnel to discuss your career goals,” CcHUB said.
