Ethiopian IT academy graduates first batch of students

East African economies like Ethiopia are latecomers to the field of software and web development, which has long meant that they’ve had to import IT talent, but new efforts are underway to change that.

An IT training academy launched in Addis Ababa by company Gebeya has graduated its first batch of software developers. The graduation event, held May 20th, celebrated the end of six months of hands-on training for young developers.
