The maiden edition of experiential tech-focused lifestyle and knowledge exchange event series, UNCODE held on Monday, September 2, 2019, at the Alliance Française, in Lagos. It was produced by Livespot360 for Livespot Digitech, the data-driven and innovative digital division of Livespot360.

The full-day event featured many tech leaders including Iddris Sandu, Tech Virtuoso that built algorithms for Uber, Instagram and Snapchat; Co-founder of BuyCoins, Ire Aderinokun; Head at Africa Fintech Foundry, Segun Adeniyi; Co-founder of Andela and Eden Life, Nadayar Enegesi; Yvonne Alozie, Director of Programs at Gitgirl amongst others.

Addressing the future of technology in Africa, Keynote Speaker at UNCODE, Iddris Sandu said:

“Africans do not have the necessary skills set in technology to show the world how their culture works. What happens is we follow the western way of doing things… but we haven’t seen technology really emerge from Africa in the way that it was dictated by Africans and it was created for Africans, so what results is that Africans are not aware of their capabilities.“

Iddris Sandu added that “When we talk about funding and we talk about just why our apps aren’t trending in the top 100. It’s not really because of quality. It’s because the system wasn’t really designed for the metrics that define us to be at the forefront.”

Commenting on the purpose of the UNCODE event series, the CEO of Livespot360, Deola Art Alade remarked,
