Make addition onto Google + and create applications in Accra, Lagos and Kampala! (#googleplus)

GH Developers, Programmers and coders? Where you dey? Come show the world what you fit build.

Hello Ghanaian developers! After the successful Hackathons in South Africa and Kenya which saw some amazing applications built, we want to continue spreading the love!

A hackathon is an event when programmers meet to do collaborative computer programming. Hackathons focus on either a technology tool/product or a topic to collaboratively build programs and applications. Hackathons are typically between a few hours and multiple days.

There will be a one full day Google+ API Hackathon with the support of the Google Technology User Group (GTUGs) in Accra (Ghana). If you are ready to wow us with your application, please apply for the event using this form: Accra for the event on the March 21 from 9 to 6 pm at the Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology (MEST). The deadline to sign-up is March 3!

Remember to start today on getting those creative juices flowing! Familiarize yourself with the API and review these resources. Begin gathering ideas and coding a little. Use the Hackathon to perfect your application and win one of the multiple prizes we will be awarding - including a ticket for the overall winning application to Google’s premiere developer event, Google I/O!

Any updates relating to these Hackathons will be posted on Google+ (of course!) using the hashtag #hackgplus. Stay tuned!
