HACKATHONS: JAN CONCLUDES NATIONWIDE HACKATHON IN PARTNERSHIP WITH TECHQUEST

Last month, JAN in partnership with TechQuest Nigeria set out to organize four hackathons for young developers to identify young tech talent to join the JAN team in building digital solutions for scaling impact. The nationwide hackathons took place in Ife, Kaduna, Nsukka, and Uyo, with Ife kicking off in May and Kaduna, Nsukka and Uyo taking place in June. From Kaduna, the winning team of Nafiu Garba and Ibrahim Isa, presented a mobile app that featured current technologies like Chatbots and Artificial Intelligence, displaying a knack for research and teamwork. The duo of Ani Emmanuel Linus and Ofoegbu Ugochukwu Valentine emerged winners at the Nsukka hackathon. Their software application met all requirements and had the best User Interface. The final hackathon which took place in Uyo saw Enya Emmanuel and Nsikak Emmanuel emerge winners after 48 hours of programming. Their solution remained the best out of other participants, featuring great app features, and a user-friendly interface. Following these hackathons, the best teams would be selected and invited to Lagos for induction into the JAN workforce following which they will begin implementation of their solutions. We remain grateful to TechQuest for the partnership.
