I’m leaving an incredible week at the African Internet Summit in Bostwana feeling inspired! Africa IS at a tipping point and we need to keep the momentum going.
To that end I’d like to remind everyone about the African Peering and Interconnection Forum (or AfPIF it’s known) happening at the end of August in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
AfPIF about building connections.
Connections across boarders, connections between people, connections between governments, connections between businesses.
AfPIF is the event to come to in Africa to meet:
- Chief Technology Officers of Internet Service Providers or companies;
- Technical experts who build and run Internet Exchange Points;
- Policy and Decision Makers – both in Africa and Globally;
- Representatives from financial institutions around the world
Here are ways you can take part:
- Become a Panelist
- Apply for a Fellowship
- Become a Sponsor
Why are we doing this? Here’s why:
