Building your career in Africa as a software developer for European or North American clients has excellent benefits. But how do you get there? Check out this episode of Tunga Dev Hour.
Global sourcing of tech talent from African countries has taken a flight. IT-staffing company Tunga now published a research report about sourcing software developers from Africa.
This research article describes in detail which countries are most suitable for sourcing African software developers and why.
“When you’re working with more than 300 developers across Africa, you spent a lot of time onboarding remote software engineers on different projects and for different clients.”
Globally 17% of software engineers are women. In Africa this percentage is 2%. Tunga starts “women in tech” coding classes to increase this.
Interview with Ernesto Spruyt and David Semakula of Tunga. They talk about pioneering the development of outsourcing to Africa.
We are proud to announce that together with Kampabits we are providing an advanced coding course to 15 girls. Our goal is to promote diversity within Tunga and in the tech ecosystem.
In this video, Ernesto & Bart travel to Lagos, Nigeria to spend quality time with the existing Tunga software developers community there, and to host a meetup for aspiring developers.
David, CTO at Tunga, explains that the local market in Uganda doesn’t offer modern technology and doesn’t apply to the skills of African developers.
