Nigeria

This group is a Not-for-Profit IT support group that would enable free flow of support and exchange of ideas in the Nigerian Open Source community. This we hope will help those of us that have benefited so much from the community to give back to the community that has helped our work so much. Events shall be organised from time to time by the group. The goal of this group is to foster the local community, provide local support and to allow the local Drupal industry to grow.

The three core roles of Drupal Nigeria User Group will be

• Education
• Support
• Socializing

This group is restricted to Nigerians or Drupal users (or interested users) in Nigeria.

DrupalCamp Lagos (November) 2011

Hi all ,

We are looking at running a small DrupalCamp in November this year. It will help bring industry players and users together... We will focus on discussions and how to generally build a stronger local community moving forward.

One of the key tasks obviously is to find sponsorship for the event to fund Venue, Publicity, and so on. We also need to work on the website... I will update with a full task list as soon as we establish enough interest...

ScoopAfrica.com

ScoopAfrica.com is a new website I developed with Drupal. It is a business networking website for professionals and small-business owners across Africa. Individuals can create comprehensive professional profiles that would help in locating the right employer and their desired jobs, while companies can create complete company profiles that serves as a cost-effective advertising tool.

The original idea was from my partner, which we both run Scoop Internet Services in Lagos. He handles the marketing while I do the development.
