The conference was a great opportunity to develop new relationships and identify new opportunities for TYPO3 in Africa. It was also great to meet our friends from the government and private sector in Rwanda, who have thus far launched more than 270 TYPO3-based websites on gov.rw subdomains.
Mathias Bolt Lesniak and Daniel Homorodean attended the Transform Africa Summit in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, on 26–28 April 2023, as part of the activities of the TYPO3 Community Expansion Committee and the Meet TYPO3 initiative. Mathias is a TYPO3 Association board member and Daniel leads the Expansion Committee. See upcoming Meet TYPO3 events.
Daniel’s African Overture
While Mathias arrived directly in Zimbabwe from Norway, Daniel had already spent a week in Africa, visiting existing and potential TYPO3 communities. He visited Kampala in Uganda, Nairobi in Kenya, and Harare in Zimbabwe.
Talking with tech communities, governments, and institutions about digitalization and our CMS creates valuable personal connections. It also puts TYPO3 CMS on the map as one of the tools that will help a government provide citizens with easier access to public services and encourage business, investment, and tourism.
