ISPON Software Development Club Competition 2012
ISPON calls for qualified Institutions to Register and Participate in the National Software Competition.
THEME: “THE CLOUD AND THE FUTURE OF SOFTWARE NIGERIA”
The National Software Conference provides an interactive forum for members of the software ecosystem—developers, consumers, regulators, policy-makers, related professionals, and other interest Groups—to interact and feedback on issues impacting the articulation of this key, albeit nascent, economic sector.
In both government and the business world, the organizations which benefit most from the transformative role of IT are those which treat IT as a key strategic resource for achieving organisational goals rather than as a purely technical input. Your organisation is a leading proponent of this latter as demonstrated by your huge commitment to deploying technology for national development.
The National Software Conference will be the first edition to be organised by the Institute of Software Practitioners in Nigeria (ISPON). ISPON believes that the prioritisation of Software Design, Development and Deployment (SD&D), is one of the best avenues to engage the challenges of global competitiveness, empower the citizenry and enthrone sustainable development and progress.
The overriding vision for The ISPON National Software Conference/Software Competition for Universities is to promote an awareness of the imperative of developing Nigeria’s indigenous software development capacity as a national priority. It is hoped that by exposing the issues, establishing the strategic relevance of the sub-sector in meeting the challenge of national growth and prosperity; and providing a continuous platform for interaction and articulation of industry’s needs amongst a diverse target audience, a specific momentum can be built to create an enabling environment for the growth of the sub-sector.
It is our objective to organise an Exhibition and Conference of international standard, befitting of Nigeria’s stature on the continent; and her standing in the international community of software developers and service providers. In order to achieve this, we intend to package and present a comprehensive and well planned Exhibition and Conference in every respect.
