Africa has made great strides in recent times in all areas from politics to economy and gender equality. One of the most visible areas of development and growth has been in the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) arena. In less than a decade, the continent has seen the emergence of leaders who grasp the benefits that technology provides. In Nigeria, Uganda, South Africa, Egypt, Ghana etc., more resources are being devoted to the teaching of ICT courses and the encouragement of NGOs to assist in these areas.
At the same time, it is interesting to note the impact Free and Open Source Software is making. We hope to use this medium to track the adoption and use of Free and Open Source Software in Africa and highlight the efforts of those behind the push.
