Below is a list of upcoming tech events in Nigeria.
#NigeriaDecides Tech Meetup 2; A review of how technology aided transparent elections in Nigeria
(A message from the Nigeria Decides Tech team…) Back in October 16th 2010, we had a meetup to discuss how we could use technology to bring about transparent and credible elections in Nigeria. Creative ideas were brought to fore and people actually went ahead to work on it. The result; ReVoDa! A mobile app that helps to people report situations in the polling unit and also request for help as they need. The application was super successful as Nigeria in more than 27 states sent in reports of what was going on in their states. I call that impact!
