Another Nigerian has broken the glass ceiling in the field of technology. Moyinoluwa Adeyemi is now a Google expert for android.
According to a tweet by her on Wednesday, November 6, she said that she is the first Nigerian that would be getting the position.
The new Google android expert said she is very excited about the new job and she will remain committed to learning and sharing her knowledge on the larger platform.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Abdulhakim Bashir, on Wednesday, October 9, became the winner of another international competition in tech.
He won in the Artificial Intelligence category of the Startup Innovation competition which was put together by the Dubai’s World Trade Centre.
It should be noted that the competition was borne out of the need to stir up the innovativeness in young owners of startups.
The Nigerian champion invented Chiniki Guard, a security application targeted at curbing shoplifting in shops and general theft.
“Chiniki Guard provides real-time updates on the activities going on in a retail store. It reports theft and shoplifting by analyzing the video feed through the Closed Circuit TV,” he said.
According to him, the application has the potential of stopping over 80% shops from avoidable losses that are caused by theft and dishonest workers. Bashir won a whopping sum of $10,000 for his novel app.
Dr Amina Sambo, the coordinator of startups in the country told Daily Trust that the victory is a further proof that the nation’s youths have great potential in information technology.
Another Nigerian with great contribution to the industry was Dara Oladosu who created a powerful twitter bot called QuotedReplies.
Quoted Replies is a bot made for twitter that allows users on the micro messaging site to find quoted comments on tweets without having to go through the hassle of searching the platform.
The bot is a big advancement on the ‘retweet with comment’ feature that the social media platform introduced some years ago which allows user to quote a tweet with their comment.
