A bunch of us celebrated Software Freedom Day this year at a very special school, African School For Excellence in Tsakane (near Brakpan). The day was a tremendous success, with 106 kids attending (on a Saturday!!) our technology roadshow.
The day started at 9.30 with Jay (the school’s founder) introducing us to the learners (a very special experience – all of us got cheers, even the software developers!).
Then the group was split into three, rotating through two classrooms, each with three tech tutorials. The group not in either of the classrooms spent some time dreaming and scheming about their upcoming projects and interacting with demos in the tented area.
