This workshop will be launched in partnership with some of the best and leading ICT players in South Africa which include BlackBerry, CSIR, Google, Microsoft, mLab, Nokia, Qualcomm, Samsung, Technology Innovation Agency and The Innovation Hub.

The workshop which will take place from 03 to 05 October 2012 at The Innovation Hub in Pretoria, forms part of the Vodacom Developer Programme which aims to encourage local developers to design apps that are relevant to the South African market as well as the global market.  

"We are thrilled to have partnered with key industry players who have teamed up to drive mobile application innovation in South Africa. They will present their best practice software engineering techniques and provide insights on some of the most advanced mobile application software development tools. Developers will also gain insight on funding options available.  We hope this programme will encourage local developers to get actively involved in the creation of an ecosystem of local apps in South Africa," says Prins Mhlanga, Managing Executive of Digital Media at Vodacom.
