Namibia: Developer Circles Windhoek Platform to Be Launched On Saturday

Developer Circle, a community driven program that's free to join and open to any developer will launch the Developer Circles Windhoek from Facebook on Saturday morning at the NBII Mobile lab, NUST.

One of the 2017 Mandela Washington Fellows, Lameck Amugongo, will partner with Facebook to host a "Developer Circles" workshop.

The Circles are forums to share knowledge, collaborate, build new ideas, and learn about the latest technologies from Facebook and other industry leaders.

Whether a member of a circle is a student learning how to code, a developer looking to turn an idea into a reality, or an experienced coder searching for the latest Facebook product and open source tool updates, Developer Circles empowers a diverse range of technical talent to improve their skills and access the information they need.

By fostering stronger communities and creating more technical awareness, our goal is to empower developers, similar to existing Facebook programs like FbStart, which for the past several years has focused on helping early-stage startups succeed.

For the launch, a special guest from Facebook, Proud Dzambukira who is the Strategic Partner Manager of Platform Partnerships for Sub-Saharan Africa who will officially launch the circle.
