Developers push through the night at m:Lab Hackathon
Coders from five nations around the world – two in Africa – worked through through the night this weekend at the m2work Hackathon.
The event, staged by infoDev, a global partnership programme within the World Bank Group, challenges developers to bring mobile app ideas to life in a bid to be named the winner.
Hackathons were staged this weekend in Pretoria, South Africa, and Nairobi, Kenya, where hundreds of mobile app developers competed to complete their apps and present them to panels of judges.
In both countries, the organisers report that the coders worked through the night to prepare their presentations.
