LAGOS, (CAJ News) – INTEL Corporation, the United States-based multi-technology company, has flagged off the Intel Developer Zone (IDZ) programme in Nigeria to local developers.

The scheme has been launched at its just concluded Intel Developer Day Nigeria (IDDN) 2015, which took place at Civic Centre, Victoria Island in Lagos.

The event provided a platform for software developers to interact with Intel software experts and enjoy live training on how to use various Intel software tools on the Intel Developer Zone (IDZ) platform which supports Independent Software Vendors (ISV), app developers and maker communities with information and tools.

Intel Corporation Country Manager for Nigeria, Olubunmi Ekundare, said Intel was trying to help local developers fulfil their potential.

“We want to create the right type of technology and also provide
appropriate training to get the best out of this technology,” said

Regional Director, South and Sub-Saharan Africa, Intel Corporation, Sven Beckmann, welcomed the enthusiasm among young developers.

“It is good to come to Nigeria and see how interested these young
developers are in our programs, and we are open to partnering with them. We want to see the next Einstein coming from Africa. Students need to be mentored and we want to help guide them, so that they can better tap into their innovative ideas,” said Beckmann.

IDZ is expected to offer Nigerian developers a place in the ecosystem of global technologies, tools, developers and partners.

It will also offer Nigerian developers the opportunity to explore Intel’s cross-platform productivity suites for creating applications targeting Android and Microsoft Windows devices with native performance and exposure to unique platform capabilities.
