• Software Freedom Day

  • 30th September 2017

  • Software Freedom Day was organized by Linux Accra User Group under the theme: “Open Source for Sustainable Job Creation and Cyber Security”. This program was graced by the Deputy Minister of Communication, Hon. Vincent Sowah Odotei. There were series of panel discussions on the following:

    • Identifying and supporting open source software in Ghana
    • Wiki Data, Open Licenses
    • Open streets maps
    • Introduction to internet of things, application and the opportunities
    • The need for career guidance

    Barbara, our VP of Education and Programs presented our work to the participants. She also took part in a panel discussion: “Girls in ICT and the importance of open source software”.

    This is what she has to say:

    “Speaking there about Developers in Vogue was an experience I’m grateful for and I was glad to know that a lot more people are also interested in having more females in tech and STEM fields as a whole. In all, the program was informative, educative and fun and I would encourage everyone to attend at least once.”
