“The Future of Now: Always on, Always Connected” governs Social Media Week Johannesburg. Committed to a collaborative effort towards developing the city’s infrastructure, Social Media Week Johannesburg partners with JoziHub and the City of Johannesburg on the “A Better Johannesburg, Developer Challenge 2014” – an exciting initiative designed to align creative talents in the fields of app development, design, engineering and more.

We invite leading thinkers and doers who have a passion to see their city shine to come together and create web and mobile apps that will benefit the citizens of Johannesburg.

This unique developer challenge will play out over a period of two days, in which the wide-ranging participating teams roll up their sleeves and get stuck in the business of creating solutions aimed at making Jozi a better place to live, work and socialize.

A Better Johannesburg, Developer Challenge aims to encourage the teams to build apps that encompass any of the following areas:
– Public transportation
– Service delivery and utilities
– Healthcare
– Community engagement
– Arts and Culture and more

The winning teams will receive cash prizes totaling R25,000.00
