The 2016 CMS Africa Summit has partnered with Africa’s Talking to sponsor selected developers to this year’s summit. The sponsorship will help cover part of the cost of attendance for eligible developers to the Summit.
The 48 hour event has already attracted many partners and sponsors and has lined up over 30 speakers in 40 sessions.
The first 30 developers who have previously signed up and have accounts on Africastalking.com will be selected and sponsored to the event.
Nicholas Kamanzi, the Developer Relations Manager at Africa’s Talking said they are doing this because they love their developers and they want them to partake of the opportunities at the CMS Africa Summit.
“We love developers at Africa’s Talking, that’s why we provide them with APIs to make it easy to build web and mobile apps that reach millions of mobile subscribers. Whether it’s reminding a patient to take their medication via SMS or building IVR solutions with our voice APIs we give developers connections to the telecoms without them (developers) leaving their coding stations to go to these telecoms,” Nicholas Kamanzi said.
“CMS Africa Summit brings together developers who are building products that we use every day and we are partnering with them to make it easy for our developers to meet and network with other developers from across the globe, and for us to educate other developers on how they can benefit from using our APIs,” he added.
Other sponsors include Automattic, Hostalite, SnowDog, Infinity Computers, Webstar, PC Tech Magazine among others.
Tickets to the summit scheduled to take place on 1st – 2nd April cost UGX 60,000 for both days or UGX 40,000 for one day.
