ISPON hunts for cloud technology developers

The Institute of Software Practitioners of Nigeria (ISPON), in partnership with the Government of Cross River State and Nigeria Computer Society(NCS) has announced their intention for the National Software Conference & Competition 2012 that is set to hold at Tinapa Business Resort, Calabar.

ISPON, through its president, Dr. Chris Uwaje noted “Today, we are flagging-off perhaps the most significant, challenging and inspiring National Software Conference and Competition in the Nigerian ICT Landscape. The Theme is “The Cloud and the Future of Software Nigeria”. It is hoped that this knowledge conference and competition adventure will unleash the currently suppressed ideas and creativity of Nigerian Software Professionals and the entrepreneurial spirit and skills of our teeming youths.

Tinapa 2011 was a sell-out inaugural event with close to 1000 participants for the Conference and participant segments. The 2012 event promises to be exceptional in all respects. Cross River State Government – our main host and partner – has committed to raising the bar for quality of the conference and ensure a memorable, beneficial and sustainable experience. One of the key factors behind last year’s success was the quality and range of individuals and organisations spread across Africa, Asia and the Americas. This enriched the Round table Interactive sessions and breathtaking presentations.

The central challenge for 2012 is how to improve on the milestone and success of last year’s conference and competition. This is why we have completely re-strategized and revamped the entire branding, speaker, panel of judges’ faculties. We want to assure all the participants of an inspirational experience. This amongst other things is what informed the selection of the current Theme which is designed to explore some of the most critical challenges of the Software Profession and Industry – namely: software in the cloud and what Nigeria must do to survive.”

The event will take place at Tinapa Business Resort, Calabar from 28th – 30th of October 2012. The special guests to grace the occasion are the Vice-President of Nigeria, Arc. Namadi Sambo, Cross River State Governor, Senator Liyel Imoke and the Minister of Communications Technology, Mrs. Omobola Johnson.
