Day three of Menya Crash Course

Day two of Menya Crash Course

Crash Course for Menya Volunteers

sorry for being so late on announcing this.

EGLUG will be involved in yet another partnership with a community oriented non-for-profit.

New Vision, is a young NGO working in the field of community development in Al Menya, the bulk of their work is being done by volunteers and they're very interested in the positive impact of technology on local communities.

they heard about FOSS and GNU/Linux and wanted a piece of the action so we agreed to prepare a 3 day intensive course for 4 of their volunteers on GNU/Linux desktop usage and administration and of course discuss FOSS concepts.

Meeting with representative

Martus is a software tool that allows users to document incidents of abuse by creating bulletins, uploading them at the earliest opportunity, and storing them on redundant servers located around the world.

Caryn will demonstrate martus for us and we'll discuss how EGLUG can help Egyptian organizations planning to use this piece of FOSS, and then we'll all go have dinner somewhere near downtown and chat about FOSS for community development and public service (what americans would call A Birds of a Feather session).
