Topic: MW4D group extension and schedule
13:10:04 [steph]
steph: the group has been extended till end of february
13:10:54 [kiwanja]
is there any funding issue/question connected with extending or keeping the Group running?
13:15:32 [Raphael]
should we try webinars? how do these work? do you have experience in this?
13:16:09 [Raphael]
instead of costly conferences (including carbon...)
13:18:13 [Raphael]
I agree w/ Ken
13:19:19 [Raphael]
steph: the WebFoundation can implement some of the recommendations of the roadmap
13:20:36 [steph]
raphael: other option that F2F meeting
13:20:46 [steph]
like online conference
13:20:51 [steph]
using videoconference
13:21:13 [steph]
could generate dynamics without travel
13:21:21 [steph]
things like webinars
13:21:55 [kiwanja]
liked some of the suggestions and outputs from Maputo - tools workshops, days based on themes with practitioners, etc.
13:23:15 [betty_purwandari]
13:24:09 [steph]
13:24:15 [Raphael]
steph: option for asynchronous workshops
13:24:32 [betty_purwandari]
Do W3C or Web Foundation have plans to give mobile web training to developers in developing countries?
13:24:32 [kiwanja]
would be worth speaking with the people at ALNAP, who do a lot of webinars with weather stations around the world (and it works quite well). they did a good one on FrontlineSMS recently
13:24:56 [steph]
betty: training on technology
13:25:10 [kiwanja]
steph - we should look at again with ref to Betty's question
13:25:29 [kiwanja]
mobile development guides, toolkits, etc.
13:25:53 [betty_purwandari]
@Ken: Thanks
13:27:57 [kiwanja]
also, Erik Hersman (White African, Ushahidi) is setting up a tech hub in nairobi - we should look at tapping into these, too
13:31:23 [steph]
strathmore university is dowtown nairobi
13:32:19 [Raphael]
Makerere / Kampala
13:32:50 [Raphael]

13:33:17 [Raphael]

13:37:08 [kiwanja]

13:44:34 [steph]

13:44:42 [steph]
agriculture, human rights
13:44:51 [steph]

13:45:29 [steph]

13:52:14 [steph]
ack raphael
13:53:58 [steph]
raphael: need of tools assessment
13:55:39 [steph]
ken: tools are different
13:56:35 [betty_purwandari]
Is there any portals of blogs for mobile web developers sharing their solution?
13:56:57 [steph]
steph: adding that in charter
13:58:05 [Raphael]
we need to do smthg like this linking to clear definitions of what each tool does, what the conditions of uses are etc.
