About this event

After two years of online events we are finally ready for an in-person event at Afrolabs and we can't wait to see you all in person once again.

The focus of our April event will be on networking. Rather than just hosting a set of tech talks, this time you are all part of the program. We'll open the stage for lightening talks and invite all of you to participate. Tell us about a cool project you worked on during the pandemic or something you feel passionate about.  

  • Sign up sheet on the night
  • Short talks of 5-8 min
  • If you have slides or a demo to show, great. If you just want to chat, also fine. 
  • No need for a polished talk, but we might have some swag prizes for the coolest prezo.  
  • The theme is "Pandemic Pet Projects" 

We'll provide some food and drinks. (Contact us if your company wants to sponsor.) Oh, and we also have a big box of awesome Google swag to give away.

This event is sponsored by our friends at Afrolabs and  Peach Payments

PLEASE NOTE - Covid is still around and requires some basic safety measures:

  • The venue is fairly large, but we and our hosts reserve the right to restrict access, should we reach capacity.
  • Wear your mask, keep your distance, respect your peers, and stay home if you don't feel well.
