Uganda Meetup

Bell Lager and open source in Uganda

At first look it might appear that open source development in Uganda runs on Bell beer. That would be incorrect, it runs on a mixture of Bell Lager, Open Arena and free Ushahidi t-shirts

This last Friday we had a meetup at the Linux User Group (LUG) monthly meeting in Kampala. There was a great turnout of at least 40 people, though I have my reservations on whether they were all there to hear me talk about Ushahidi or whether it was for the Linux gaming focus… :)

Ushahidi meetup in Uganda

It turns out that there are quite a few open source advocates in Kampala, and there were a couple guys who were interested in helping out with the building of Ushahidi. Here’s hoping that we see more Ugandan devs on the Skype channel and in the commit logs!
