Like free software?

   Come to the Software Freedom Day and experience software on steroids. ”

Not only is the software to be featured free, most of it is Open Source, which means that it is developed by a community for the community. Open source software developers care about your freedom. Freedom? You ask. Yes I said it, they care about your freedom. These developers give you the freedom to use,copy, distribute and even modify the software to suit your needs. Doesn’t that sound cool? With Open Source, it’s not just encouraged, it’s expected.

Sofware Freedom Day 2012

On Saturday the 15th of September 2012, thousands of people around the world will be celebrating Software Freedom Day.

Zimbabweans are also part of that number. There are two events scheduled to celebrate SFD, one in Harare and the other in Bulawayo.
The events are meant  to educate the  public about the benefits of using high quality FOSS (Free and Open Source Software)  in education, in government, at home, and in business — in short, everywhere.

Java Experience

After a frustrating search that didn’t bear any results, I made a decision
to move to another programming language. What was I searching for? Tips on how to develop
apps for mobile devices. I must admit, I was pidgeon holed in one programming language(Visual Basic).
I mean, I sincerely beleived that VB was the best thing after sliced bread..how wrong I was.
It was after a lot of unfruitful searches that I figured out that VB was not the best option for mobile development.
