Open Source Community Africa is a community aimed at creating and supporting the open source movement within Africa. As a community, we intend to help integrate the act of open source contribution in African developers while strongly advocating the movement of free and open source software.

OSCA is proud to announce a 3-day festival tagged Open Source Festival to be held in Lagos, Nigeria.

The festival will be a high profile event that would attract student delegates, developers, and corporate organizations on a large scale and would entail a series of talks, technical sessions, and awareness of developer-friendly tools.

This is the maiden edition holding in February, and it will be a forum for similar minds to interact, network, share ideas and discuss the latest happenings in the field of software development as well as the growth of the opensource community in Africa. Through this festival, we intend to move Africans from being the users to become the Next Billion Creators.
