Howzit ;-)

Welcome to Tech4Africa 2013!

Since we've started, we've made it a priority to listen to the tech community at large so that we could get better and better. 2012 Saw us get a lot of great feedback for the developer day we held, and the general change in format of the 2 day conference.

Overwhelmingly, you folks asked for more developer days, deeper content, shorter high level talks, and more focus on African tech. Similarly, we've been getting requests for #T4A in countries all over Africa.

Well, after a lot of work and preparation for 2013, we're proud to start kicking things off!

The 2013 Schedule
