17 Year Old Cameroonian Kid is First African to Win Google Hacking Contest

For the first time a 17 year old High school student from Bamenda emerged as the first Black and African to be a Grand Prize Winner for the Google Code-In 2016 contest. Opportunities continue to be offered in Africa especially in the IT and Tech sector for the youth. One of the projects that has been in play is the Google In Contest that has been introducing Pre-university students aged between 13 and 17 into open source development. They are provided with bit-sized tasks which are evaluated and given a score throughout a three month period. As there was a recent Internet shutdown in Cameroon, the Silicon Mountain tech ecosystem was affected. This is when 17 year old Collins Nji was forced to travel to a nearby city of Bafoussam to do follow up work on the contest.
