Today’s Business Daily (which is actually quite a good read, unlike it’s cousin the Nation which has become just as mediocre as the Standard) featured two well-written stories on local techies.
Still on local tech, Sasanet has launched a Coders Challenge – over kshs 300,000 in cash prizes. Entry closes on August 16. (Joe Mucheru, si you get Google to leta Summer of Code to East Africa)?
Finally, don’t say you didn’t get told – Digital Indaba 2007 is coming up in September, you can apply for scholarships here (meanwhile [cough cough] the “real African” blogging conference has yet to materialize). I’d like to see some women getting scholarships this year!
