Microsoft Invites Female Developers to participate in the Microsoft LEAP Hackathon 2019. The LEAP Program is a benefit of the recently announced Africa Development Centres in Lagos and Nairobi, Microsoft says. It is a 16 weeks Software Engineering Program which focuses on strengthening the place of women in technology. Combining traditional class room learning with hands on projects in a real-world development experience.
Microsoft is inviting lady developers to participate in the inaugural LEAP hackathon event. There will be two events scheduled to take place in Kenya and Nigeria. At the Radisson Blu, Upper Hill in Nairobi on the 17th to the 21st of June. And at the Microsoft Office, Civic Tower in Lagos, Nigeria.
The LEAP Engineering Acceleration Program provides a new approach to talent sourcing. Leveraging modern models and avenues to find passionate and capable talent among women who are from a non-traditional ICT background or those returning to the workplace environment after a while.
