It’s 3 days until proposals are due for FOSS4G Dar, the first FOSS4G on the continent since Capetown in 2008. Submit! This is one you don’t want to miss. The hospitality of East Africa is outstanding; Tanzania is a beautiful country; and there’s lots of great and interesting work to be learned about and collaborated on in Dar and Zanzibar. This is a huge opportunity for the international FOSS community to see the work being done in Dar, Zanzibar, and the Great Lakes Region that is innovative, world changing, and ripe for collaboration.

A few years ago I made the pitch for Seoul, first of my loves among megacities. Dar, as an emerging megacity invites you to come. Come enjoy the Indian Ocean, Swahili cuisine, culture, and hospitality, and participate in FOSS4G Dar.
