The unStack Conference 2020

unStack Africa will be holding a 2-day virtual workshop conference on the 6th - 7th November. The best part is this workshop is completely free, all you need to do is register.

This conference is made free in solidarity with what is going in Nigeria right now, we are supporting Nigerians with their protests against police brutality.

From the previous events, we have had over 300 developers attend as an open-source community focusing on hands-on workshops and also informative talks for software engineers and designers.

As long as you are interested in improving your engineering and open source skills, this year's conference is definitely for you.
