FOSS Nigeria – First Day

Yesterday I ran into Adriaan in Amsterdam, not only by coincidence. We had a nice flight to Kano, Nigeria.

We met the Commissioner for Science and Technology at the airport and were warmly welcomed. After a drive through the night we went straight to the hotel. Motorcycles in the dimly lit streets of Kano were my first impression of Nigeria :). Of course we ended up talking until way past bed time… Mustapha and the others from Hutsoft. We got some sleep and were good to go. The conference just started this morning.

We had nice introductions and Adriaan took the time before lunch to give a general introduction to Free Software and to Linux.

Now we’re gearing up to give an overview of available Linux Distributions, the history of Linux, some license information and source code management. But before we get to that, we still have a lot of questions to answer. It seems to be the general practice here to pass question in written form to the speakers after the presentation.
