The aim of the African Developers Conference is to enhance the engagement of African software engineers in the world of technology. It seeks to create a strong community of entrepreneurial African programmers who possess the potential to instigate real changes and put Africa on the map.
The African Developers Conference was initiated in response to the growing number of software engineers in the African tech scene who lack the opportunity to engage. The convention will offer a dynamic platform for emerging thought leaders and self starters looking to share knowledge, expand their perspectives and enrich their experiences.
We envision African Developers Conference becoming an official annual convention that celebrates and promotes Africa’s tech ecosystem. It will pave new paths and smooth out the existing ones while encouraging ambitious tech talents to inspire the creation and development of innovative initiatives.

The first day of the conference is dedicated to software developers, STEM university students, tech professionals and enthusiasts. During the developer’s day, successful tech professionals will showcase their work and lead presentations, workshops, panel discussions and demos to share their stories and expertise.
Technopreneurs Day is a startup pitch and demo event where we give selected tech leaders, entrepreneurs and startups a chance to pitch to top tier investors, customers, and government partners.
