Chip Shot: Mobile Software Development in Africa

Mobile adoption among emerging markets is poised to grow significantly in the coming years, which will connect new populations of people with mobile technologies for the first time. For many in emerging markets, a smartphone will serve as their first computer. As in the case of Africa, it has and always will be a mobile first continent. To support the growth of mobile technology in the continent, Intel is working with iHub to foster growth of the software development community in Africa with targeted investments in mobile application development, university training and expansion of technology hubs. In the final episode of Mobile Insights from MWC 2013, we hear from Erik Hersman, managing director and co-founder of iHub, and Renée James, executive vice president and general manager of Intel’s Software and Services Group to learn more about mobile technology development in Africa.
