Google’s g|Day heads for Nigeria, Ghana
Google’s free g|Day developer sessions will be staged in Nigeria and Ghana again this month.
Following successful g|Day events in Tanzania and Ethiopia, g|Day is headed for the Lagos Civic Centre in Nigeria on 15 – 16 March and the Alisa Hotel in Accra, Ghana, on 19 – 20 March.
Google says 2012 will be the third year of g|Days in Nigeria and Ghana, so the programme has been expanded to cover topics for all different levels of developers, webmasters, business professionals and marketers. Sessions will emphasize locally relevant topics and showcase successful developers and businesses.
Besides the usual tracks, there will also be advanced hands-on code labs on Google App Engine and Android development for a limited number of developers.
There will also be Google+ Hackathons for the advanced developers and a panel discussing women and technology.
Entry to the event is free, but the registration process is selective.
