This week National Open Source Conference of Afghanistan (NOSCA) starts in Jalalabad, Afghanistan. The event is organized by the National ICT Alliance of Afghanistan. It will be held at Nangarhar University on February 19-21, 2013. Unfortunately I will not be able to attend this event. Please share the conference information with your friends in the region and encourage people to participate.
Building a Mozilla community in Afghanistan is on my list. During ICANN 41 Singapore I met few technologists from Afghanistan and remained in touch with them ever since. Last year we kick-started Firefox Aurora Pashto and Dari localization effort.
Communications in Afghanistan has grown considerably. Entrepreneurship is thriving despite the problems. Recently Divon Lan wrote about Afghanistan's first women technology entrepreneur on his blog.
Get in touch with me, if you want to get involved in Mozilla Afghanistan community building effort.
