Hello ben van't ende,

                                Thanks for your reply, from what you have explain is seems as though CMS Africa is concentrating her activities particularly in the east of Africa. My Country is in west Africa. Particularly our interest is work specifically with the Neos community since it is part of my responsibility as a 2014 GSOCer with #TYPO3 to ensure that I stay useful to the community.

Heyla all and Chris,

This seems like a great opportunity and we should take advantage of the offer.
One of the things we talked about earlier is setting up cooler camps or coding
events. The KDE guys had there conference in Jamaica a while back and there is
something like: https://www.codeonthebeach.com/

We do have ties with Africa. Beginning of this year I went to CMS Africa in
Nairobi and I looseley mantain some ties with people in Kenya and Uganda. It is
still in the back of my head to organise workshops over there. The guys from CMS
Africa are also doing a tech tour. They did one already and in November on in
Rwanda. They just inform me that CMS AFRICA SUMMIT will be on March 5-6 next
year. Again in Nairobi.

I would like to see something like that a combination of workshops and coding.
If we can make that cool and atrractive to developers and have cheap flights we
might raise the funding for that.

....and yes I would also like to see Neos spread beyond our usual circles.
