Just wanted to announce that a few of us from UNICEF will be presenting
RapidSMS and our "mobile hacking toolkit" at the MiniBarCampKampala.  There
is alot of mobile phone related innovation happening in Kampala right now
and hopefully this event will showcase some of it.  Anyone in the area
should come. Here is the official announcement.


MiniBarCampKampala is gathering to share and learn about mobile phone
innovation happening in both Uganda and the international sphere. Please
come and share your thoughts and innovations.

The event will feature discussions, demos, and interaction from
participants. Want to know how to connect a cell phone to a computer and
send text messages? Curious about who the companies, students and people
doing innovative work with mobile phones, IVR, SMS and computers are? Come
to the event and find out.

Feel free to add yourself to the attendees list or add a presentaiton idea.

Please come and present or just listen in and ask questions. We are looking
forward to seeing you there.
