JCertif Express Tour in Africa

By Guest Blogger Max Bonbhel, JUG Africa President, JUG Congo Leader, JCertif Founder and Managing Director and more!

Three months ago, I made a long trip to speak for the JCertif Express Tour hosted by Africa JUG and GDG. I was touring Africa visiting JUG Leaders in Casablanca, Abidjan, Yaounde, Douala, and Brazzaville.

Coders4Africa: Creating a Community of African Developers

Coders4Africa is a Not-For-Profit Organization with the goal of providing professional training and certification on a variety of platforms, including Java developer frameworks and tools, to one thousand African software and application developers by the year 2016. Oracle is proud to be a sponsor of Coders4Africa.

The endeavor was created through the efforts of five IT professionals: Ali Kone (Mali), Kwame Andah (Ghana), Ibrahim Cisse (Mali/Senegal), Amadou Daffe (Senegal), and AlMoustapha Cisse (Niger). Collectively, they have 40+ years of software engineering and development experience. After years of interaction with technologists in Africa, they decided to focus on programming and software development as a way of giving back to their communities.

"Our short term goal is developing a community of African developers all across Africa under one structured roof - Coders4Africa," Amadou Daffé said. "We want to create a pool of highly skilled African citizens in the software development industry to enlarge the labor income share thus contributing in a more equitable distribution of income," he explained.

Coders4Africa is holding an informational event on June 18-19 in Accra, Ghana. Software developers, local software companies, and Ghana Government Representatives are all warmly invited. Learn more at www.coders4africa.org!
