  1. I would have loved to attend but i dont think i will be able to get a sit in the front roll. Do you think it will be on youtube. Anyways, I will sure be on mobilityNigeria for extracts from the event (if available).

  2. Nice one. keep us informed on dates and availability of seats. We should attend! First one for Naija. Only the begining. It is going to be world class soon!

  3. This is a step in the right direction, at least we get to show the world what we can offer.

  4. Afewgoodmen,

    I have updated the news item with the dates and venue for the event: August 17 to August 18 at the University of Lagos Auditorium.

    In addition, Mobility Nigeria is being signed up as a media partner to the event, and I have just been invited today to speak at the event.

  5. Yomi, Thanks. This is the first of its kind in Nigeria, and I intend to be there. Perhaps I’d say Hi to you over there. I am delighted mobility Nigeria would be represented there and that you would give one of the keynote speeches!

  6. The conference should give mobility Nigeria the porpularity it rightly deserves.
    It would be nice for more and more people the know about the great things you are doing here.

  7. Thanks guys for the support and encouragement. You’ll certainly be seeing more people here on Mobility Nigeria, as we are about to do some public awareness via a major national newspaper.

    It will be the first time that we are going public that way since the inception of the site.

    Meanwhile, keep letting us know how we can make this site a richer resource for you and others, and we will explore your suggestions.


  8. This is a great news that this kind of development is coming to Nigeria. Although I have not seen a Nigerian made mobile application, I think this is a good way to bring aspiring mobile application developers from Nigeria together and assure them that there is future for them.

  9. good news! Mobility Nigeria is slowly coming to the fre as it should. Is there any hope that it would be broadcast on the net? Even if not live.

  10. This event is very interesting, i would love to see more stuff like this happening in nigeria.

  11. Even if not live.

    Please tell me the channel on Youtube and let me add it to my MIRO collection.

  12. archie and bosun99uk,
