Ubuntu at OSCAfest 2023

The Open Source Community Africa Festival (OSCAFEST) is a prestigious yearly conference that garners a significant turnout of students, developers, designers, and corporate entities. It encompasses an array of talks, workshops, and initiatives aimed at promoting the growth of open source culture, contribution, development, community, etc., across the continent. This year’s event will take place in the incredible city of Lagos, Nigeria on June 15-17th.

Canonical is a proud sponsor of OSCAfest and will be providing several workshops this year:

  • Andreea Munteanu, Product Manager on the MLOps team, will be presenting a fascinating workshop on decomplexifying data science with MLFlow. This session is an excellent way to get started with your first machine-learning project.
  • Sergio Schvezov, Engineering Manager on the Starcraft Team, will be hosting an engaging, hands-on workshop on building Snap Applications. Attendees will build their very own CLI Snap and even delve into Flutter Snapping basics. Be sure to bring your laptop!

When you’re not engaged in the many talks or workshops the multi-day conference has to offer, be sure to stop by the Ubuntu booth for a quick chat and pick up some Ubuntu themed swag for your collection. Just look for the bright orange booth!
