Hi guys, welcome to another great week. To help you get the week started on a smooth note, we have curated a list of interesting events in the tech scene just for you. These events will take place between February 7th and February 12th, 2021.
Increasingly, the world is opening up to physical events. So, some of the listed events are physical and the others are a hybrid of physical and virtual attendance options. Be sure to take advantage of the presence attending events in the space affords this week. Enjoy!
Here we go:
Galaxy Unpacked 2022
This week, Samsung will host the Galaxy Unpacked 2022 live broadcast, which will kick off the first large Samsung Unpacked 2022 event. This year’s Unpacked event will be a virtual event that will be streamed live on Samsung’s website. It will also be available on a YouTube feed before the February 9 event.
There’s no news yet on what the company will be revealing this time. But, the event is expected to be the launchpad for the Samsung Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Ultra. There has been a series of leaks of Samsung’s Galaxy S22 flagship phone series. The event will surely put paid to some of the said speculations.
At this event, Samsung is expected to unveil a trio of flagship phones. However, there may be some significant changes for users. For starters, the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus are expected to have smaller displays than their predecessors and new 50MP main cameras that are sharper than their predecessors. It’s possible we could also see accessories for both the S22 and the Tab S8, such as new wireless earbuds.
Date: February 9th, 2022.
Time: 5:00PM CAT

Big data and analytics Lagos
Attacks on the software supply chain have become far more serious and frequent. What should software development teams do in the face of these new threats? Organizations must make decisions that are fueled by data and analytics, or be held prisoner by them.
Because there is no quick fix, siloed data, lack of trust, misalignment with results, a focus on data for its own sake, and the expectation that a technology acquisition would suffice may be enormous challenges to overcome.
To address these pending issues, a discussion on big data and analytics will be taking place in Lagos. The event will address topics such as analytics, business intelligence, Spark, Hadoop, NoSQL, cloud computing, machine learning and more. The event will also feature discussions on algorithms in the context of individual applications.
Date: February 9th, 2022
Time: 7:00 PM WAT
