The tech communities continent


The most evident thing is the preponderance of technological communities. This happens not because Africa is particularly technologically advanced, but because it is a continent where communities are emerging and being created. The first communities to be born are always technological, driven by the Google Developer Groups and the StartupGrinds, which operate in almost all countries.

This means that Africa is further behind than other nations. However, it is showing excellent signs of growth, with communities with over 1500 members in 15 countries.

The first 4 categories cover 80% of the total communities, making the African distribution the most unbalanced. Only 10 types exceed 1.5% (against 14 of the world average).
