Tech Talent in Africa is at its peak, just like the growth of technology. And this is not just a mere say, this is backed up with facts. And just recently, a report ensued from GitHub (the Microsoft-owned world’s largest open-source software development platform) that stated that Africa has the highest number of developers in the world.
Nigeria has a record of the third-faster growing developer community on Github, with more than 40% more repositories on the software engineering platform over the past year.
Now, that is quite something huge!
Tech hubs keep growing by the day across Africa, Nigeria is at the forefront of this development as the country with the highest number of tech hubs, closely followed by South Africa and Kenya.
The tech community in Africa is rapidly expanding with tech companies, European juggernauts bridging the gap by exposing the tech talent to the same tools and practices, same opportunities as their global counterparts through boot camps, talent accelerator mentorship programs to keep them competitive in the market.
There is a large talent pool, particularly Tech Talent in Africa; In November 2020, US-based payments giant, Stripe, announced its acquisition of five-year-old Nigerian payments start-up, Paystack. This trend will continue in the next decade as leading tech companies like Twitter, Google, Facebook have continuously recruited tech talent from Africa to join their software engineering teams. Senior technology talent (those with 5+ years of experience) have honed their skills and landed roles with some of these foreign companies. That's the extent of how far Africa has come in competing globally and the quality of our tech ecosystem.
