Subject Re: Apache Con in Africa?
Date Sat, 17 Oct 2015 01:57:20 GMT
Hey

Thanks!  Good to know - I hadn¹t heard about that discussion!

Hmm, ja it¹s actually probably actually cheaper for SA people to get to
Europe than Morocco but still definitely good for the continent and ASF
community at large.  I presume this was coming out of there being Moroccan
people in ASF? - If you¹re on this list lets talk! :)

I¹d support either, or even maybe Nigeria or Kenya.  I suppose Morocco has
the advantage of easy access for EU people but I suspect the Linux
Foundation would make more money hosting in SA - just a gut instinct,
could be wrong about that, but I think it would attract more local
attendees than elsewhere!

Others thoughts?
