A couple of days ago MTN Nigeria announced the App Developer Challenge.
MTN Nigeria, in partnership with Co-creation hub, has launched an App Developer Challenge for Nigerian Developers. Because of the difficulty Nigerian developers face in selling their apps on popular app stores like Google Play Store, MTN is giving them the opportunity to sell apps to consumers on the MTN app store.
From now until October 24, 2013, MTN is calling on all developers (individuals or teams) to participate in the challenge. Winners will be announced by December 13, 2013.
On Wednesday the 31st at 5pm (next week wednesday), the CCHub will hosting developers at a briefing session with MTN – where you can find out much more about the challenge and ask the MTN representatives questions about the challenge, their new app store, their support for developers and any other relevant topic.
This message is more like a ‘Heads-Up’. Registration for this event will be opened up tomorrow -I’ll share the link to it as soon as it’s available.
