Co Creation Hub, commonly referred to as Cc-HUB or the HUB, is a technology-oriented centre located in Yaba, Lagos State, Nigeria. Founded in 2010 by Bosun Tijani and Femi Longe as Nigeria’s first open living lab and pre-incubation space, it provides a platform wheretechnology-oriented people share ideas to solving social problems in Nigeria.Cc-HUB received massive acclaim for hosting Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerburg, during his visit to Nigeria on August 30, 2016.
Facebook Developer Circles is organising a meetup at CcHub tomorrow, September 17, 2016, and they expect you to clear your calendar (well, if you’re a developer, at least). The meetup is to start at 11am and it will go on until 3pm.
NOW WHAT EXACTLY IS GOING TO HAPPEN THERE?
Developers in groups of at most 6 (coached by at least one experienced developer) building with GraphQL and RelayJS on Messenger bots and ReactJS; discussions on open source and how to drive it in Lagos; and the unveiling of hiddenwisdom.ng, a site built by the developer community to preserve African proverbs.
WHO AND WHO WOULD BE PRESENT AT THE MEETUP?
Osmond Oranagwa (Rails, GoLang, Full Stack Developer), Oluwakamiye Adelemoni (Mobile Developer), Ogbara Sofien Godwin (Rails, API Team Lead, Messenger bots), and Oyebanji Pyjac Jacob (Python, PHP, Messenger Bot Dev team Lead).
I am pretty sure you would also like to know that sessions will not be limited to Facebook tools (they’ll also address underlying software design principles) and group projects will be on what was discussed.
