We're very pleased to announce the second edition of DrupalCamp Dakar.
The camp will be taking place on January 28th at the Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF), situated on the Corniche Ouest in Dakar.
This will be an excellent start to 2012 and we fully expect to have DakarLUG, GTUG and the Blender Community present as well.
This edition will have technical and non-technical talks alike, and will have 2 training tracks running in parallel, covering the basics and more advanced Drupal topics.

Mar / 11 / 2011 / Announcing DrupalCamp Dakar: April 22nd - 24th, 2011
Mark your calendars: on April 22nd, 23rd and 24th the compound of the Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie in Dakar is the place to be for Drupal folk far and wide.
Friday April 22nd, we're hosting a Drupal Community Dinner to help everyone get (re)acquainted and demonstrate Senegal's famous Teranga ('hospitality').
Saturday April 23rd: a day of talks and workshops with a continuous coffee bar and terrace.
Sunday April 24th: Drupal breakfast, aka coffee and code, where we'll be discussing the future of the African Drupal Community as well as demonstrate how to contribute code to Drupal and how to convert Drupal 6 modules to Drupal 7.
Today is a day of anniversaries. It also happens to be my birthday, and looking back at the last 5 supercharged Drupal years makes me smile.
Working with Drupal has changed my life and has taken me, a simple open source twiddler, around the world: Kuala Lumpur, Barcelona, Washington, Accra, Szeged, Cologne, Paris and Dakar - to name a few.
May / 16 / 2010 / Drupal in Dakar: a Community on the Move
A little under a month ago we helped organize the first of what we hope to be many regular Drupal meetups in and around Senegal and the rest of West Africa. The Dakar Linux User Group and the Agence Universitaire Francophone graciously offered their facilities for an afternoon dedicated to introducing Drupal.
