by | Jul 13, 2017

The Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) is announcing the 3rd edition of its Information Communication and Telecommunication “ICTEL” expo scheduled for the 25th to 27th of July, 2017. The expo will kick off with a 2-day hackathon tagged ‘Hack4Good’, in partnership with IBM and Techpoint.

Why a hackathon?

Rather than sit and complain about the state of the country, this is an avenue for you to hack for a good cause. The idea is to inspire innovation and generate unconventional but working solutions to intractable social problems. Hack4Good is an important part of the ICTEL expo 2017 as developers will come together to collaboratively build and launch mobile or web apps for solving important social/ business problems.

Who can take part?

Hack4Good is open to software developers, data scientists, UX designers, ICT experts, engineers, students.
