After a very successful training in Dakar, Senegal, which ended a week ago, Coders4Africa initiated a second Practical Project Based Training in Accra, Ghana on Feb 11 at the Mobile Web Ghana hub. In Senegal our trainees built apps in the Health, Agriculture, Enterprise and Education sector in 3 months. This time round in Ghana, 20 passionate software/mobile developers have joined us and teamed up with real time clients in the shipping, education, micro-finance and fashion industry.

“We partnered with Mobile Web Ghana because they are one of the leaders in Ghana in terms of incubation, mobile training and community gatherings.” said Kwame Andah, a co-founder of Coders4Africa. Upon initial discussions with The World Wide Web Foundation who built the new Mobile Web Ghana incubation center, synergies were found and the 2 organizations decided to work together on this initiative. Florence Toffa, Web Foundation Regional Coordinator in Ghana has been a valuable component of this partnership.

The trainers are a mix of the Coders4Africa community and instructors from Mobile Web Ghana. Classes are held on Mondays, Wednesdays and Sataturdays for 2 hours, with 1 hour set for lectures and the other for the teams to work in groups on their assigned projects following the Agile software development method. We are already in the 2nd week of the training and all teams have had lessons on Requirement Analysis and met with their stakeholders. This week we will be covering Project Planning and Coders4Africa co-founders Ali Kone and Amadou Daffe will be presenting useful group collaboration tools such as GitHub and Asana virtually from our headquarters in the USA.
