Visit to KNUST

Of late I’ve been on the road quite a bit, and as a result I’ve been really tired. So tired, in fact, that I forgot to blog about my visit to the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in Kumasi.

Smith and I were invited by the Computer Science Society at KNUST to do a seminar on open source on Wednesday last week. We did this pretty much to a full house. It was great to speak to such a large crowd. There were quite a few questions and comments from the audience.

After the seminar itself, we fired up our laptops and showed off some open source alternatives to various Windows applications that people tend to use. Among the applications we showed were OpenOffice.org, Amarok, VLC, Gimp, Inkscape and Firefox.

All in all, I felt our visit was a success. I had a really great time over in Kumasi. I met some old friends and made a few new ones as well. I really look forward to going there again. Hopefully, the next time I go, the KNUST LUG will be active again..
