We have been working extensively in Senegal but have been extending our reach to Benin, Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast and, even, Cambodia. Dr. Scharff is an associate professor at Pace University and she has been using the material also in her courses at Pace University.

  • Benin

We organized 2 mobile training sessions in Benin in collaboration with local partners.

The first one (2012) took place at EtriLabs. It gathered 25 developers and focused on Java ME. 6 mobile apps were realized during the training. The instructional material is available in our Moodle instance.


The second one (2014) was organized by MTN Benin as part of the 2014MTN Apps challenge. It focused on brainstorming, UX/UI, jQuery Mobile and quality assurance. 25 participants attended the training. Dr. Scharff was invited by MTN Benin to conduct the training. The instructional material is available in GitHub.


  • Burkina Faso

The jQuery Mobile content we developed has been used during the training of 15 female mobile developers in Burkina Faso. The training was organized by the Foundation for Women, ICT and Sustainable Development. The official web site of the training is available here.
