Of course, it’s about development, inventiveness and creativity, but no, it’s not all cold and hard logic in tech. You may not have the luxury of jumping all over the place, but you’ll be coming up with solutions to problems and maybe even completely new innovations while having fun.

Late July, Google CEO, Sundar Pichai, was in Nigeria unannounced and he spoke at the Google for Nigeria event which was largely a showcase of Google’s agenda for Nigeria and Africa.

Although many in attendance expected he would deliver a keynote address, he went for a keynote interview instead during which he somehow revealed the uniqueness of Google and its products.

According to him, Google’s product design is such that it can be used by anyone – from the professor in Harvard to the child on the street of Lagos.
