“We will bring back the concept of Nextech but ongoing. This year we want to engage with you (African Developers) so much better through a series of virtual events. Events focused on Power Platform, Azure, M365 and much more.” said Dona Sakar, Microsoft’s principal advocate.

The Power Africa Tech will comprise a small group of African tech developers. They will be able to share, learn, connect and grow with events and opportunities from Azure, Power Platform and M365.
