Four major firms are partnering in a five-year summer development programme that aims to teach teenagers computer programming, coding and app development.
The initiators said they intend to groom manpower for an ICT-rich future in Africa.
Code Camp Africa, a technology capacity development company, will run the summer skills acquisition programme at Lekki, Lagos, teaching the youngsters coding, the computer language used to develop apps, websites and software.
The programme, which commences on July 25 and runs for four weeks, is supported by Andela, Angelos Foods, and Diamond Bank (the lead sponsor).
Participants register online on the codecampafrica.com website and can also pay online.
Andela, a leading software development company, recruits the most talented developers in Africa and shapes them into leading programmers. It then outsources them to technology firms and start-ups across the world.
