Intel Corporation Africa is yet another organization that is poised to bring rapid development to Africa. Over the years Intel has proven to be not just committed to expanding their customer base in Africa but has also invested in various technology education areas on the continent.
They further proved their commitment by introducing the Intel Developer Zone (IDZ) and Student Partnership Program. These were recently launched in Lagos at the Intel Developer Day Nigeria which held on the 30th of July in Lagos. The event brought together various tech enthusiasts and Independent software vendors as they mingled with Intel software solution experts.
The partnership program which will serve as a platform to promote students as on-campus ambassadors for Intel will also provide upcoming developers the means to familiarize themselves with Intel technologies and set them on the right path to becoming better creators even as they sharpen their craft. Current partnering tertiary institutions include Obafemi Awolowo University, Rivers State University of Science and Technology and the Federal University of Technology, Akure.
The Intel Developer zone is also expected to help give Nigerian developers insight and access to Intel’s cross-platform productivity suites, while placing them at a vantage point in the ecosystem of global technologies, tools and developers. Intel hopes that by engaging and providing a community for developers in Nigeria, they would have also helped transform the computing experiences of their users.
