Overview of NTW 2017

Nairobi Tech Week is back and bigger than ever before! This year, we bring you developer workshops from industry leaders, a Facebook hackathon powered by Angel Hack and a full day of industry chats for you to excel to the next level.

Attendance to NTW is free because of our generous sponsors. We will be sending out an attendee application form, and choosing those who show the most excitement and intentionality to learn, grow and contribute at Nairobi Tech Week.

About Nairobi Tech Week

Nairobi Tech Week is Sub Saharan Africa’s largest tech event, powered by Moringa School, Africa’s #1 coding school, and focused on developers. In partnership with Facebook and other sponsors, we are excited to bolster the growing tech sector and culminate this support in one week. We’ve crowd-sourced topics for our event and are looking forward to bringing the various actors and influencers in the tech ecosystem to one space and exhibit the forefront of innovation and technology. We look forward to seeing you soon.

As a recap of Nairobi Tech Week 2016, the event lasted four days – from a tech talk day representing various industries to a full-day of developer workshops, which culminated into a 2-day hackathon and industry-wide tech panels on the last day. We had over 450 selected attendees, 22 panels and 15 developer workshops. Our speakers and attendees included some of the most esteemed and influential people in Sub Saharan Africa.
