DevCon 2018

Shaping Africas' Tech Industry Today

Devcon is an annual platform elected by Agora Code Community and collective members of the technology community in Zambia. It is specifically crafted with Software Developers and Tech enthusiasts in mind. Its aim is first of all, to raise the quality of the craft, secondly, to raise awareness of the industry which is still in its infancy in Zambia. We believe that providing a platform for developers to level up is key to a progressive approach to building products and communities.

Devcon is free to all developers of all skill levels and all languages. It covers all Software aspects from Agile Methodologies, DevOps, APIs, design, AI and many more. Though this is a Software Developers Conference, it is not limited to developers, part of our goal extends to also improve culture in organizations, inviting product & project managers, engineers and business development experts to understand the software ecosystem.

Devcon brings exposure that will prove useful to innovation in various industrial sectors leading to direct economic value addition. Apart from the technical opportunities available, Devcon will also give developers access to networking and investment opportunities which is critical to growth.
