Introducing Installfests

At The Google Developers Group Mentors Retreat In March 2015 In Nairobi, Kenya, I Encouraged My Mates From Sub-Saharan Africa To Use Installfests To Fascilitate Open Source Development And Android Study Jams.

Lors de la retraite des GDGs mentors en Mars 2015 à Nairobi, au Kenya, j'ai encouragé mes coequipiers venant dáutres pays de l'Afrique subsaharienne à utiliser les événements Installfests pour faciliter le développement des logiciels Open Source et les applications Androide pendant les Study Jams.
