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 us to be in Kenya, focussing on developers, relevant content and a stronger focus on African tech.

Well, after a lot of work and preparation for 2013, we're proud to kick off Tech4Africa Nairobi!!
