Lessons
Collaboration, networks and alliances
 are a way to build software
 engineering capacity that could
 be used to create an APP
 ecosystem
Creating coordinated opportunities for students
 who have learned theory of software to achieve
 practical experience made them much more
 marketable
  Our biggest challenge is understanding and
   believing we can and should do it & then
 
   building sustainable businesses
                           
Lessons
    AVOIR is non-structural – that was an important
     component of both its success and its winding
     down
    Despite numerous challenges, AVOIR has been
     going for 8 years, and has produced excellent
     software in Africa
    With industry interest and input (including
     funding) we could replicate it and include an
     app ecosystem

    FUTURE

  • 50. Lessons AVOIR is non-structural – that was an important component of both its success and its winding down Despite numerous challenges, AVOIR has been going for 8 years, and has produced excellent software in Africa With industry interest and input (including funding) we could replicate it and include an app ecosystem
