Silicon Mountain Conference organised by the Buea tech community is happening right now at  Chariot Hotel Complex, Buea. The theme of this year’s event  is ‘Think Global Build Local”.  This conference has attracted people from far and near as well as top organisations.

The Silicon Mountain Conference ( SMConf ) is the paramount conference of Buea’s tech community in particular and Cameroon in general, as captured in this BBC report.

President of Cameroon in one of his speeches referred to the youths of the country  as “Android Generation”. I bet you with enlightenment from  the Conference, our so-called Android Generation is proving to us that they are equipped with skills  to introduce high-tech to almost every daily activity.

Every year the conference attracts creatives, programmers and community organizers from Cameroon to the Mount Fako area for a day of code labs, workshops, and sessions of inspiration and fun. This year’s event has already proven that it is going to be more exciting than ever before.The following interesting  Africa’s Digital Leaders will give keynote addresses;
