African developers celebrated at Facebook’s annual F8 conference




Facebook celebrated the achievements and products of its growing African developer and partner ecosystem at its annual F8 developer conference held in San Jose, California, on April 18 and 19, 2017.

African developers shared the stage with Facebook and developers from around the world, showcasing products and services they have created for their local communities and the global market.

F8 hosts more than 4,000 people in person and hundreds of thousands of people, watching via Facebook Live for two days of new products, tools, interactive demos and speakers to help developers build, grow and monetise their apps.



This year, Facebook brought F8 to developers around the world through F8 Meetups hosted with tech hubs around the world.

In Africa, it hosted F8 Meetups in Nairobi, Lagos, and Cape Town, where participants watched live streams of the sessions in San Francisco.

“We are partnering many African developers to launch products that not only meet the needs of their local markets, but which are also ready for the world stage,” says the Facebook’s Head of Platform Partnerships for the Middle East and Africa, Emeka Afigbo.


“Events like F8 are a perfect opportunity for us to talk about how we will work with partners to do more with our platforms. They are a forum for us to get feedback from our ecosystem and to showcase our partners’ work to the world,” he added.

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
