Tanzanian trainee programmers get inspiration at the Mentored Internship Programme

A group of geek-interns were out in full force in Tanzania recently, taking part in rigorous FOSS development training, which included topics such as optimisation techniques and infrastructure deployment and maintenance.

The workshop, which is part of the greater Mentored Internship Project also known as the MIP (of which you can find out more information on page 7 of this Chisimba newsletter), was hosted at the University of Dar es Salaam in February this year.

Chisimba spreading the wings through the Mentored Internship Project

The subsection involved are the academic and the fees modules.
