TechJam Ibadan 2016: Exclusive Recap

TechJam Ibadan 2016: Exclusive Recap

Techjam Ibadan was curated out of a passion to get the city to experience technology both in knowledge, concept and in practical demo. It turned out amazing as it held (as scheduled) on the 8th-9th of December, at the Nustreams Conference and Culture Center. If you were a part of the 2 day Tech Extravaganza, then you can testify to that, if not? Bummer!, But we got you. Here’s a quick recap:

 

 

Day 1

The day started out with some chill music as the participants registered and the early birds got a Google pack containing some fancy things from Google & TinklingD. Mary Ajayi and Adebayo Adegbite were the amazing anchors, as they took over the stage.

The event started with Pastor Francis Madojemu’s Keynote Speech on “Technology: Uncovering the Opportunities” (This was delivered by Pastor Olumide Olalekan as he was in the UK and couldn’t make the event, well he sent us the pictures of him from the recently unveiled Amazon GO at the US.)
