On 16th June 2023, the yearly Sustain Africa event (a satellite event using the Sustain brand) happened in Lagos, Nigeria, bringing OSS contributors and maintainers from different countries in Africa. Open Source Community Africa, a community of open-source enthusiasts, advocates, and experts within and across Africa, hosted the event. This year, they had seven (7) working groups, including:

  • Open Source Software Development
  • Open Source Documentation
  • Open Source Design
  • Open Source Data Science
  • Open Source Marketing and Funding
  • Open Source Programs and Specialized Projects
  • Open Source Burnout and Mental Health

The conversation around the comprehensive overview of how FOSS is developed, maintained, utilized, and providing a roadmap for solving the cultural, financial, and institutional issues among open-source project maintainers continues to be the focus of Sustain. Kindly read the community report to learn more about the outputs of the summit.
