27-9 Cape Town 27 August 2007


To Edit this page, the password is "techbum"


This is pretty-much an "open-source eventing" initiative, done in the interests of industry development.

The organisers are involved in the industry, but volunteer their efforts.

Any sponsorship goes straight to the audience in attendance.

  • Will Green - will dot green at apurimacmedia dot com
