Intel Corporation West Africa has launched the Intel Developer Zone program in Nigeria, aimed at encouraging and supporting Independent Software Vendors(ISV), App developers and ‘maker’ communities in Nigeria.
The IDZ program will offer Nigerian developers a place in the ecosystem of global technologies, tools, developers and partners, and this will in the long term, collectively transform their computing experiences. They will also be opportune to explore Intel’s offer of cross-platform productivity suite for creating applications targeting Android and Windows devices with native performance, outstanding battery-life, and exposure to unique platform capabilities.
According to the Managing Director of Intel Corporation West Africa, Mr. Olubunmi Ekundare, “Intel is keen on enriching and connecting lives, and Africa’s increasing expansion in the mobility market makes the understanding of coding important.”
He noted that the firm’s intention to expand opportunities for ISVs in Nigeria and help them maximise their business potential is in line with its commitment to empowering people through technology.
Intel has also launched the Intel Student Partnership Program, which is set to advance student education on technology development in three Nigerian universities; the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Rivers State University of Science and Technology, Port-Harcourt and the Federal University of Technology, Akure.
