Africa Mobility Conference 1.0

What are you most excited about as we start a fresh week? As you give this some thought, we believe you should know about tech events this week.

Why do we share tech events every week? Tech plays such vital roles as easing processes and saving time and effort across different areas of our lives. So, it’s just as important to list these events and draw you closer to the solutions they inspire and make happen.

These are the tech events happening around us this week: May 30 – June 4, 2022.

Free ICT Bootcamp

ICT is increasingly becoming lucrative and changing the way we do things. As ICT continues to evolve, our lives and activities also adapt.

What’s more? The opportunities available to us to create wealth and jobs are also affected by the transformations in ICT.

Tech events this week: Free ICT Bootcamp is scheduled to hold in Abuja on June 4. Collett Academy

Like in the developed world, there are millions of opportunities available in ICT in Nigeria and many parts of Africa. However, burgeoning human populations, abject poverty, lack of infrastructure, acute unemployment/job losses and lack of personnel stand as obstacles to maximising potential.

With the understanding of the problems, young people can learn and utilise ICT knowledge and skills to engage and empower Nigerians. The bootcamp will expose participants to the abundant lucrative opportunities available in ICT and specialisation from the over 30 ICT roles in today’s world.

Also, Collett Academy is making use of the Bootcamp to prepare participants for fresh ICT courses scheduled for August 2022. Beyond, the Bootcamp will establish why participants should pick up an interest in learning ICT and how to make a living out of it.

Date: June 4, 2022
