Last month, Co-Creation Hub and MusicTechSpace launched the Music-Tech Innovation Challenge to find, support and assist with the development of technology solutions solving problems across four thematic areas in the Nigerian music industry. These areas include:

Cloud computing might be tricky and overwhelming to navigate, in this series I would like to explain the basic fundamentals of cloud computing.

One of the most important tools a developer should have knowledge about is Version Control Systems. It is quite essential when working on personal projects or building professional grade software applications. Version control is a critical component of today’s software development workflow, not just only that it is key in protecting and managing your source code.

The goal of this post is to give developers who are not familiar with this concept an insight into what version control is all about , the various types of version control systems and why we need to use version control in our projects.

Integrating a payment gateway could be a lot hectic and time consuming especially when it’s libraries are not well documented or organised. Paga’s API is a lot easier to integrate. It can be used to securely collect and make payments. It is divided into three categories: Paga Connect, Business API and Merchant service. In this guide, you would discover how I integrated Paga’s payment gateway on a web app I created called EventSplash using it’s Business API library. EventSplash is a web app where event organizers schedule events for their target audience to participate. It creates a platform for people…

Last Thursday, we hosted our first-ever Developer Community event at CcHub, Lagos. The goal of the event was to iterate our commitment to the Dev community and share insights into how they can build powerful solutions by integrating Paga APIs.

Our Head Developer, Zubair Abubakar, walked attendees through the Paga API library and chaired a panel with merchants who currently use Paga to pay and get paid.

We are thrilled to announce our latest release — Paga Developer Portal.

As a frontier in mobile payments, we understand that sometimes businesses want to leverage their development expertise to build solutions and often these solutions will require a third-party integration. A part of our tech vision at Paga is to create an open ecosystem where we can engage closely with the developer community.

This is why we’ve built the Paga Developer Portal to serve as a home for passionate developers and innovators, offering a wide range of application program interfaces (APIs) for mobile and web development. …
