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.
Google Africa yesterday announced the G-Nigeria Day 2010 event on their Google Africa blog. The event is to be held at the University of Lagos from 18 to 20 February. The main objective of the G-Africa events is to help African developers and entrepreneurs build localised applications and implement business ideas using Google technologies. The event is facilitated by Google engineers who take attendees through sessions on the latest Google tools and hands-on codelabs.
