Facebook Hosts Developer Circle Leads From Across SSA Ahead Of The iD8 Nairobi Conference



Beginning today November 20 through November 21, Facebook is hosting a Facebook Developer Circle Leads Summit in Nairobi ahead of its first ever Facebook iD8 Nairobi conference for developers and startups from across the continent that will take place on 22nd November 2019 at the Trademark Hotel in Nairobi.


The Facebook Developer Circle Leads Summit will bring together 60 Developer Circle leaders, who represent 45 circles from across 17 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, with over 74,000 members.

Developer Circles is a programme designed to create a network of developers across the world, organised locally by community members. The developers meet online and offline to create solutions that cater to the needs of their communities.


Each circle is led by a volunteer circle lead, who arranges offline meetings and manages the Facebook Group where members can continue the conversation, share code and deepen their knowledge on topics like React and Bots in Messenger.

Commenting on the summit, Chimdi Aneke, Strategic Program Manager, Developers and Startups, Sub-Saharan Africa said: “Facebook is a company that grew from the developer community, and Developer Circles is a programme aimed at making local developers stronger at a global scale.


“We are excited to bring together our community from around Africa for two days of talks, workshops and technical sessions as part of our ongoing commitment to growing the tech ecosystem across the continent.”

    We have the likes of nkiru onyejeocha who kept enjoying our democracy dividends, and using our money to buy praises to her name in the line buying wrapper and rice for her party faithfuls, I thought she boast of attracting federal government attention to her people or is that one part of her political propaganda. Let her come ooo its time to give back to her people.
