"More than 70 people who work on free and open source software
in Africa gathered in Namibia between March 15 and 19 to teach, to
learn, and to network. This meeting, called Africa Source, was the
first event of its kind, bringing together developers from roughly
25 countries on the continent, as well as visitors from a dozen
countries outside Africa. Africa Source had several organizers,
including SchoolNet Namibia, The Tactical Technology Collective,
and The AllAfrica Foundation, with support from The Open Society
Institute, and USAID.
