What You Might Have Missed at The Accra Trotro Apps Challenge

Some weeks ago, Accra saw the first-of-its-kind transport hackathon that focused on 315 routes in Accra, which were collected over a period of 2 months. With collaboration from the Concordia University and the French Agency for Development, AMA partnered MEST to birth the Accra Trotro Apps Challenge.

This is a short recap of the event; a YouTube video. Apart from the head shots which were too up-close, it gives a good overview of the hackathon; it’s background, beginning and its end. Enjoy!
