Zim DevFest 2023 taking place this Saturday at HIT

Leonard Sengere Avatar

You are already familiar with developer festivals, commonly called DevFests. These are events where, as ZimDevelopers puts it “technologists, entrepreneurs, investors and the broader innovation community convene to learn and share.”

The time has come to convene and learn and share again. The Zim Developers Community will be hosting Zim DevFest 2023 at HIT on Saturday the 25th of February. Come one, come all is the cry.

About the event, the organisers say it’s,

An event where we seek experts’ advise on different technologies, as well as to have time to network and get to know each other.

One of the experts that is going to be presenting there is one we are all too familiar with here at Techzim. You don’t want to miss it.

    I really wish they’d record or stream it, would love to watch it sometime next week.

    And do you also write articles for/on zero.Pindula.co.zw? I’m literally looking for a confirmation – not a no.

    And who’s representing Techzim, Garikai 🥺

    1. Leonard Sengere

      For now, there is no plan to stream the event but the organisers say they will let us know if anything changes.

      As for the confirmation 😂, unfortunately it’s the ‘no’ you saw coming. I do not write for Pindula.

      It’s not Garikai representing us, it’s Rufaro Madamombe.

          It’s not me, I promise. It’s just that when it comes to events, including freak weather events, it is better not to write in prose. To make clear what’s going on you just want the What, Where, Who, When etc.

    Any list of the speakers and topics to be discussed?

    1. Leonard Sengere

      We have updated the article with said info. Thanks.

    Rerum vero et voluptas maiores nulla repellendus Qui sint fugit facere ex aut labore consequatur

      Erica with the Latin. A quick Translate trip later and I don’t understand. “Indeed, there is no turning away from greater things and pleasures, those who escape to make them from or toil.” You gotta give us more.

    2. Leonard Sengere

      Who’s turning away from pleasures? Why is there no turning away in the first place? What are you talking about?

    Is there food? Asking for a friend… 😜
