According to Cyprien Tankeu, Regional Mentor Afrique francophone of Google Developers Group (GDG), this measure is welcome.

Cameroon is open and full of potential and it is only through training that they can shine. “ Among the videos presented and available on Youtube, a vibrant tribute was paid to Arthur Zang, creator of the CardioPad, an innovation that is changing lives around the world and which other African entrepreneurs should learn from.
