Kenya : Microsoft and ADMI launch appfactory in Nairobi

(Ecofin Agency) - The Africa Digital Media Institute (ADMI) and Microsoft partnered to boost the digital expertise of Kenyan youths. In that regard, the two partners opened an appfactory on ADMI’s campus in Nairobi.

Considered as a unit of the mobile apps and games development course offered by ADMI, the appfactory will give students the required programming, cloud and data analysis skills to transform them into quality professionals for the future web and mobile solutions market.

According to Wilfred Kiumi, founder of ADMI, “Around the world, game development had estimated revenues of $137.9 billion in 2018, while in Kenya it is predicted that the revenues will be over $31 million by 2022.”  These data show the future importance of the web and game development market as well as the necessity to train Kenyans for this opportunity.

This is the third appfactory launched by Microsoft in Kenya in the framework of its  4Afrika initiative for digital transformation in Africa.

For Ryno Rijnsburger, chief technical officer of Microsoft 4Afrika, “through this collaboration, young graduates will develop a broader range of ICT and workplace skills fundamental to success in the digital age. This is also the first AppFactory to focus on gaming, and we look forward to seeing more jobs and projects in the industry being undertaken by local professionals.”
