There’s generally a communications wall between francophone and anglophone Africa. Both sides could use greater exposure to the other.
It’s no surprise to see a bunch of tech companies and community members coming together for a 24 hour hackathon on September 24th in four French speaking countries: CÃ´te dâ€™Ivoire, Benin, Senegal and Cameroon.
What’s great to see, is that there are 6 tech labs/hubs that are supporting it in these countries:
CÃ´te d’Ivoire : AKENDEWA
SÃ©nÃ©gal : JOKKOLABS – ACT DAKAR – iHUBSENEGAL
Cameroun : APPSTECH
BÃ©nin : ETRI LABS
