Google Launches Website To Promote Google Technologies in Sub Saharan Africa

G-Africa Website

For a little more than a year now, Google has been holding a series of events for students, software developers and entrepreneurs in Sub-Saharan Africa. It started with the G-Mauritius Day in 2009, then Nigeria a few months later, Senegal, Nigeria again, Ghana in June this year,  and most recently in Kenya and Uganda in September.

To help promote these events and directly promote the use of Google technologies in Africa, Google launched the G-Africa website yesterday. According to Google the purpose of the website is

to bring the technologies we demo at our G-Days closer to the tech user in SSA, publish our outreach calendar and open communication for success with Google technologies

The site has a calendar of G-Africa and other Google events coming up in the next few months on the continent. Events like the Random Hacks of Kindness just next door in Zambia starting 4 December.

Here’s a screenshot of the website:

  1. Thanks techzim for this article. This is the sort of info some of us software developers thrive on and need to sustain ourselves. It maybe too technical for others but bread and butter news for us. I hope to see more articles from you with a bit more technical bite than before.

  2. you missed g|Africa held in S. Africa on the 8th & 9th of November. It was very enlightening wrt Google’s approach to Africa & state of African telecoms
