Description of activity

Since submarine fibre-optic cables connect East Africa to fast, reliable and affordable Internet, the region's tech scene has been leapfrogging: from no net to mobile net in 4 years. We have been working with people from all over the world, but not yet with hackers from Africa. We want to change that. We believe that it takes personal contacts to establish lasting networks. So we decided to just go there.
