It has been quite a journey. This began in 2007 in Kigali Rwanda with the Connect Africa Summit. Quite a good summary here of the ICT conference then. http://blogs.cisco.com/cle/connect-africa-approaching-the-halfway-point 5 or so years later in 2013, Transform Africa conference was in Kigali again. A post conference analysis by International Telecommunication Union (and generous sponsor and supporter) was done https://www.itu.int/en/ITU-D/Conferences/connect/Documents/Post%20Connect%20Africa%20Summit%20Report%20(English).pdf Next Month October 19-21 Kigali Rwanda proudly hosts Transform Africa 2015. Website and online registration here http://www.transformafrica2015.org/ . I have been privileged to take the front seat in Rwanda ICT journey over the last decade. Lots of painful lessons learned.. but also bigger, lots of inspirations on how it all is possible. Youtube has some pretty cool accolades to Rwanda ICT Journey. This is the first that documented that journey https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxH7fRw3Hlc produced by Rwanda Development Board http://www.rdb.rw.
The International Telecommunication Union ITU has been a strong sponsor and brains behind these 3 conferences. Transform Africa 2015, is a must watch. Make sure you register and attend Africa premier ICT4D conference.
