Alpha Anywhere is getting noticed and we are hearing about success stories from around the globe.
Over this weekend we received this email (below) from the Walter Olúwoòlé, the President of our West African Partner LANCOR who is based in Newton MA and who works with Alpha's marketing and support partner based in West Africa - PETRODATA who provides IT services for the multi-national oil companies in the region
One of the very interesting things to note in the letter from Walter is the opportunity for an Alpha Anywhere developer to get an expense paid trip to West Africa. Check out the email below from Walter for details.
" August 2013, Alpha West Africa Team pulled off an impressive project with Alpha Anywhere Web Application. The Web Application was used for online registration and shortlisting of applicants by FCSC [Federal Civil Service of Nigeria]. Over six weeks, there was about 300,000 unique visitors from 113 countries, 80,000 registered accounts, 30,000 qualified applicants running on a group of load balanced Alpha Anywhere Application Servers and one MS SQL behemoth server.
April 13-14th 2014, Alpha West Africa Team is up for another challenge. This time Alpha West Africa was selected to host the 2014 NASA space app challenge in Lagos with Alpha Anywhere.
NASA challenges are designed to serve as an inspiration for developers work and as a platform for the global community to work together
Apps Challenge is a 2-day Hackathon (April 12-13th) that sees global collaboration around open data, organized by NASA and other worldwide Agencies, to solve Space and Earth issues . There were 83 cities that participated last year, for the first time, the Alpha West Africa Team will host and participate in this global challenge.
We have one more spot left for an Alpha Anywhere evangelist to join the Alpha West Africa Team in putting out a solution for the world and at the same time putting Alpha Anywhere on the map where it truly belong. By going on this trip you will be "wired" into long term Alpha Anywhere consulting opportunities in the region.
This is going to be a much better experience than the TV show …….
Tell us why you should be the lucky evangelist to head to Africa and be on the world stage solving real life issues with Alpha Anywhere.
This is a once in a life time opportunity… time is of an essence.
Please contact me as soon as possible.
