The advent of technology in Africa has brought about positive change in diverse sectors, hence fostering development and digital economic growth. The rise of the tech industry in Cameroon embraced mostly by the youths has contributed enormously in changing the economic landscape of the country. Their innovations and digital products play a key role in attracting investment opportunities and international media.
Even though adequate facilities have not been created to ease the acquisition of such knowledge, several young Cameroonians have refused to see this as a handicap. The zeal and push to become better in the midst of global competition has led to more innovation in the learning process.
