As part of our commitment to being a product-led organization and providing the best experiences for users across our product suite, we are excited to announce our design hackathon alongside Devcenter square - a technology community of over 20,000 members dedicated to helping anyone interested in developing their tech skills get better at it.
An integral part of building any product is design - as it provides an interface for users to connect with the product. We are excited to be contributing to the design ecosystem at large.
The Afriex/DevC virtual design hackathon aims to inspire designers to come up with intuitive and innovative solutions through their design skills to solve real-world problems. By bringing together creative and innovative minds, Afriex aims to create an enabling environment for design talents to continue to grow and thrive.
At Afriex, our mission is to remove the friction of sending money across borders and to level the economic playing field on a global scale. To achieve this we are building a global payment network: a scalable and usable infrastructure that integrates existing fiat payment networks, including but not limited to banks and card processors.
