Between July 29 and August 3, the Google Developer Student Community of the University of Lagos, Nigeria participated in a week-long hackathon called Open Hack Week (OHW). Sponsored by Cloudinary, Interswitch, the Ogundipe Foundation, and other notable organizations, OHW comprised 14 teams, five developers each. After six days of brainstorming and coding, the teams successfully built the minimum viable products (MVPs) for their projects, which they subsequently presented to all the attendees.
Cloudinary was founded by developers, hence developer-centric thinking is in our DNA. Our work with developers helps them better understand all things rich-media management, and delivery is crucial to us. Now, in an effort to recognize, support, and reward the innovative leaders in that technical community, we’re excited to introduce a new Media Developer Experts (MDE) program. This program will foster a community of media-management professionals who will receive training and certifications to become experts within their field or audience; advance the state of media management, adoption, and best practices; and make the web more accessible.
