BBC hosting chat app hackathon in Nairobi



BBC World Service is organizing a hackathon in Nairobi for its Connected Studio project. The event is aimed at developing and testing a pilot service that will allow BBC audience interact easily through mobile phones. The focus is on young mobile phone users in urban and rural areas who do not currently have access to BBC content that is relevant to them, and capitalising on the popularity of social media and Chat Apps to help accomplish this.

The briefing event will be held on January 29 and the Hack on February 3-4 2015.
