More Diversity in the Open Source Community
Melton Fellow Vladimir Fomene is very passionate about technology and how it can be used to empower communities. He is an advocate for open source software projects. “We have very few people in Africa involved in open source organizations because they do not know about these opportunities.” he says. The 100Acts Program gave him the impulse needed to organize a workshop to teach people how to volunteer for open source software projects.
The workshop took place at Ashesi University and focused on three points: value of contributing to open source software, how to contribute to an open source software project and how to build an online reputation. Vladimir’s aim is to bring more diversity into the open source community. He is looking forward to seeing the projects of his participants.
