Build An Event Registration USSD App: Hands-On

Africa's Talking Community

Wed, May 11, 4:00 PM (UTC)



About this event

Traditionally, USSD's has been a challenging endeavor. Initially, USSD was simple to build but gets complicated when you need to track state and manage databases.

At this event, we’ll build a USSD that helps attendees register for the fictional Zizi Conference. We’ll also be exploring the USSD-builder library alongside NodeJS and Africa’s Talking. Get your ticket and get ready.
