Kenya Ubuntu Hour

Jambo wote, (hello everyone) iHub entrance and coffee bar

I am working with the Kenyan Team to host an Ubuntu Hour in Nairobi, Kenya this Thursday from 17:00-18:00 EAT at iHub. iHub is an Open Space for hackers, technologists, investors, and tech companies in Nairobi. The iHub’s location is on the 4th floor of the Bishop Magua Centre on Ngong Road (directly opposite the Uchumi Hyper). The location is quite inviting, with quick access to public transportation, food and the City Centre.

I will also have my IRC client turned on for discussion in #ubuntu-ke if you would like to join us virtually via that web IRC client or use your own IRC client. I’m looking forward to meeting everyone! I hope this will be the first of many related events.

The Ubuntu Hour was proposed by myself and made possible with the help of the iHub staff, iHub Member and Dreamfish Member Bernard Owuor and iHub Member, Dreamfish founder and CEO Tiffany von Emmel.

According to the website the space was made possible by funding to Ushahidi by the Omidyar Network and Hivos. Ushahidi covers the lease, electricity and data connections.
