Moat Academy shines at the United Nation (UN) Hackathon and set to raise more software developers

Moat Academy ( is a top coding bootcamp in Lagos, Nigeria birthed to bridge the gap between the academics and the software industry and to raise Software Developers that will inculcate globally acceptable best practices.
Moat Academy shines at the United Nations (UN) Influx Global Hackathon as 4 members of the 6-man winning team were our trainees at Moat Academy and at our Principal consultant's pet project - Pink IT initiative

The Hackathon which took place between March 10 - 12, 2017 was implemented in 9 cities across the world, with Lagos as the only city in Africa; innovators and developers were selected through an application process. Each city focused on one of the United Nation's Sustainable Development goal, a total of 12 teams were formed and each team was asked to identify real problems in their community and develop scalable solutions.

During the 3-day event, the teams developed prototype for their respective solution which they presented to the panel of Judges. The winning team which comprise 4 members from our training will be given resources and support by the United Nations to improve, test and scale their idea to a full-fledged business and will be making a presentation of the product at the UN headquarters in New York in June 2017.

Application is now open for new intakes into our bootcamp, after which participants will have the opportunity to be placed as Trainees/Interns in any of our partner-technology companies, where they will progress in their software development career
