The AR/VR Africa Hackathon is our trademark event, and the AR/VR Africa Metathon is an expanded version of it. It is an invitation to everyone in Africa who values creativity, innovation, and education; it offers a chance to gain practical experience in the design and development of augmented reality and virtual reality, as well as to connect with others who share this desire. Applications are now being accepted for the AR/VR Africa Metathon, which is focused on the rapidly developing immersive technologies of augmented, virtual, and mixed reality.
The 16-nation AR/VR Africa Metathon will take place both physically and virtually throughout Africa.
The 2022 AR/VR Africa Metathon is a planned program of events which comprises three major events:
AR/VR Africa Pre-hackathon Training
Participants will be a part of a learning community that spans the entire continent. There will be learning resources, mentors, master classes, and workshops available to the online learning community. Additionally, you will learn more about extended reality technologies and how to use them to create practical solutions during instructor-led training sessions.
