We’re excited to announce that we will be hosting the CodeNaija 2019 hackathon event in partnership with GitHub’s Black Employee Resource Group – Blacktocats. The two-day intense hackathon themed “building technology for social good” has been scheduled for the 26th and 27th of October, 2019. 

The participating teams of the CodeNaija hackathon will be made up of some of Nigeria’s top software engineers who will create prototype solutions that could help Africa solve some of its biggest challenges around finance, healthcare, education, and agriculture. Participating teams will have access to Flutterwave and other third party APIs for their use while also leveraging GitHub’s community. 

The goal of the hackathon is to highlight the existing community of Nigerian software engineers by showcasing their engineering craft as they build technology solutions for social good. Partners and sponsors of this hackathon all share a common interest in enabling software engineers to build technology solutions that will help Africa solve some of its biggest challenges, which is the reason we’ve strategically aligned to host a hackathon of this magnitude in Nigeria. 

Technical and business mentors will be provided by partners to serve as supportive pillars for teams throughout the hackathon. Participating teams will pitch their solutions to a panel of carefully selected judges from GitHub, Microsoft and Flutterwave; who will be responsible for selecting the winning teams.

There will be multiple prizes for the top five teams, but to highlight the grand prize, the winning team will be given the opportunity to pitch to Microsoft’s Venture Capital Firm, M12.

We have put out a call for applications across multiple media channels for mid-level and senior engineers who might be interested in the hackathon to apply.

If you’d like to be a part of the hackathon, sign up on this link. Deadline to apply: 15th October 2019
