Being tech giants increasingly seeking tech talent in Africa, where developer numbers reached 716,000 last year, up 3.8% from 2020, according to google.

In the past six months, Microsoft and Amazon have been recruiting motive which came with enticing offers, including relocation to their hubs in the US and Europe, which made them endearing to the small but growing talent pool amid stiff competition from other tech giants like Google, as well as startups.

This demand for African developers is expected to continue, buoyed by the effects of the Great Resignation, which sent employers looking for new talent elsewhere, and as tech giants such as Google, Oracle and Visa expand their operations in Africa.

But as demand rises, the number of new developers entering the market is disproportionately small, especially as traditional educational institutions in most African countries have been slow to renew their courses to keep up with the demands of the job market and the rapidly evolving world of technology. .

On the other hand, the gap between supply and demand has unequivocally led to the launch of new developer schools and the growth of existing ones in recent months, many of which are attracting the attention of global venture capitalists.
