Regular readers will know by now that among the many things we do here at htxt.africa, one of our favourite is to help organise the monthly tech talking shop that is the JoziConnect Sessions at JoziHub.

For November, we’ve got one of the best yet lined up. Rupert Sully is in town to talk about Snapscan, the mobile payments app which won multiple awards in 2013 and was acquired by Standard Bank shortly after. Using QR codes, Snapscan has created a way to pay for stuff in the real world using QR codes in the real world using that’s arguably safer than credit cards.

Want to find out how SnapScan grew to quickly become accepted in over 18 000 stores around the country and what the plans are for expansion next? Catch us in conversation with Sully next Wednesday, 11th November from 6pm at JoziHub.
