We're convinced that there will be web and technology growth in Africa, so we're getting together leading, internationally respected speakers and thinkers from the industry to discuss what's happening and what's possible, with folks that are on the ground in Africa.
Some of the things we'd like you to get out of the conference:
* Hear international speakers presenting in Africa
* Hear industry leading African speakers talk about their experiences
* Discuss global web and technology opportunities
* Understand what technologies are making the biggest impact
* Thrash out how the web can play a positive role in the development of Africa
* Create a fun, informative event where everyone can meet and interact with likeminded people
With speakers such as the Joe Stump, the lead developer and architect of digg.com; Andy Budd, the internationally renowned user experience designer and web standards expert; and Stafford Masie, the Google SA Country Manager; the conference promises to be a pioneering and intimate affair, congregating digital elite for the first time in Africa.
The focus is on interaction, discussion and sharing with attendees the future of the Web and emerging technology in Africa, and the role Africans can and are playing globally.
