Idlelo5, The 5th African Conference on FOSS and the Digital Commons

Idlelo is a conference organized by FOSSFA every two years to bring together the Open Source Community in Africa to share experiences and to network.

IDLELO is a Southern Africa word meaning "Common Grazing Ground". Idlelo captures the essence of FOSSFA's existence as well as the fundamental objective of the conference. The Conference is a forum for inclusive deliberations, assessments, strategies, and implementation of ICT policy, innovation, and trends. Idlelo, over the past four editions, has proved its necessity and has established beyond doubts that it is the one African event for FOSS practitioners, developers and advocates as well as governments to showcase results, share experiences, exchange challenges, review progress on the continent in diverse domains and chart a way forward for the following years. Please see the official website here for more details.
