Ms Winnie Ngaji has emerged as the winner of the Ladies Can Tech event, an app-building competition put together by Harvoxx Tech Hub in partnership with Web Work Tools Limited.
The first and second runners-up of the contest were Ms Princess Ganobi and Ms Sharon Uzu, respectively, and they have been awarded N100,000 Zoho Wallet credits that can be utilized for Zoho Creator Plus subscription that includes Zoho Creator, Zoho Flow, and Zoho Analytics. The winners will also receive dedicated support from the Zoho team.
The competition, designed to promote the participation of women in the tech industry, had the participants create an app using Zoho Creator, a low-code platform, and connect it with Zoho Flow, an integration platform, and Zoho Analytics, a business intelligence platform.
Zoho Creator is a cloud-based platform with low-code capabilities that enables users to effortlessly build customised web and mobile applications, even without coding knowledge.
Its user-friendly interface allows for a seamless app development experience, offering drag-and-drop functionality and ready-made templates to streamline the process.
To prepare the participants, a three-day orientation program was conducted where they were provided comprehensive training on Zoho Creator, Zoho Flow, and Zoho Analytics. At the end of the orientation, 10 participants were selected for building solutions.
On June 24, at the Ladies Can Tech contest, the selected teams built their apps in one hour and showcased them for the final round of the competition.
“We are delighted to have supported the Ladies Can Tech event and empowered women in the tech industry,” the Country Manager for Zoho Nigeria, Mr Kehinde Ogundare, said.
“By supporting aspiring women interested in technology and facilitating the development of tech-enabled businesses, Zoho aims to foster a more inclusive and diverse tech community.
“This competition showcased the potential of Zoho’s developer apps in building solutions for business scenarios,” he added.
