The Vision

We think that the best tech ecosystems in the world have regular events which bring together people in tech to learn, meet new people and have lots of fun.

We don’t like suits and ties, there are no plenaries, committees and chairpeople. We focus on great content and value for all who attend, free wifi, coffee all day, fun at night, and an electric atmosphere you won’t find anywhere else.

A Manifesto Of Sorts

Great content. The kind people talk about.
Inspiring. People, products and projects.
Networks. Where substance trumps style.
Death by PowerPoint. Clowned upon.
Progress. The other side of failure.
Programming. The new literacy.
Fun. Work is meant to be fun.
Suits & ties. Frowned upon.

Learning

Our simple goal is that you walk away both informed, entertained and inspired. Placing greatest emphasis on learning, interaction, engagement and discussion, we want Tech4Africa + XooXity to be a place for new ideas and to encourage people to make and change things.

Tech for the hacker generation

This is not a lowest common denominator event.
This is an assertive event.
We don't care if the fishbowl doesn't like it.
We do not merely aspire to the heady heights of conformity through neutrality, blandness and crass marketing.
You probably don't even care that this rebellious little event contains no agenda or bullshit and looks only for the finest content we can find.
Just go back to schmoozing at your mass marketed, bland, cheaply run watered down "networking functions", and close the browser behind you.
Tech4Africa is about breaking rules, upsetting trends and unsettling institutions but first and foremost, great content.
The kind of content people talk about.
If you've read this far, you should view the source. You little beauty.

It's Kick Ass ;-)

Made with

<3, passion, Skype, coffee, (mt), Bootstrap, php, phpStorm, jQuery, MySQL, optimism, persistence: bucketloads of, hamsters.

Speakers

Speak At Tech4Africa

In 2013 we opened up our speaker submission process to anyone. We received over 100 speaker submissions from people in 15 countries, which then received over 3500 votes from the tech community.

Since we've started, we've looked for speakers from both genders and all ethnic backgrounds. So we're going to say it a little louder this year ;-)

We're looking for women (and men), from all backgrounds.

By telling your story, you grow your network and increase your domain authority, leveraging a platform focused on authentic content.

It doesn't matter whether you're at a large corporate, a small agency, a freelancer, or a student.
Tell your story, share your code, showcase your product or solution, or illustrate how you've solved a problem.
