Last week ended with a 2 day hackathon session at the Mobile web Ghana lab, the event was organized by US Peace Corps in collaboration with Coders4Africa and Mobile web Ghana. About 7 hackers were present including a 6 member team from the US Peace Corps.

Coders built an Android Application for proposed language learning. To continue work on “The Celebrate Language Audio Project (CLAP)”, which has an aim to provide a platform for the rapid development of language lessons for any given culture. In collaboration with Volunteers in Ghana and Mali, the Peace Corps has implemented this project for 11 different languages.

The hackathon lasted from 10am to 8:00pm on Saturday and 10am to 9pm on Sunday. The project is now about 90% complete and would be made available to the public. The project is open source, more information about the project can be found at http://www.celebrate-language.com
