Why Us?

Mission

Our Mission

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.

Mission

The Inspiration

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.

Mission

Our Visions

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.
