AR/VR Africa has officially opened applications for its 2022 edition of their flagship hackathon.
The AR/VR Africa Hackathon is an opportunity for tech enthusiasts who love creativity, innovation and learning in Africa; to get hands-on experience in AR and VR design and development, and meet others who also want to learn and create with AR and VR.
2022 edition of AR/VR Africa Metathon focuses on the rapidly evolving immersive technologies of Augmented, Virtual, and Mixed Reality.
Geeky Nigeria reports that the Metathon is an event with three key components – AR/VR Africa Pre-hackathon training, AR/VR Africa Hackathon, and AR/VR Africa Bootcamp.

According to AR/VR Africa, the Metathon is a fun, fast-paced, challenging and yet highly rewarding event where everyone is welcome to learn, build with and develop in XR.
