WordCamp Entebbe 2019 Program Schedule, Speakers
According to a tentative program which has been published on the official site of the wordcamp, a number of sessions have been lined up as outlined below. .
Please note that this program is still subject to change as additional speakers are approved and added on the official wordcamp site at 2019.entebbe.wordcamp.org
We are also trying to organise a special side session for ICT Teachers where we shall breifly see how to effectively and convinently handle website design for purposes of UNEB Examinations (UCE Computer Studies Web Design).
Members who are interested in attending this WordCamp are also encouraged to register through wordcamp.ictteachersug.net for updates and coordination purposes.
Accomodation arrangements for residents
Private arrangements for accomodation for members coming from far will be made like last time at Wordcamp Kampala. This time we shall be at Nkumba University, I believe members can get some affordable one-day accomodation in surrounding towns kitooro, kitala, abaita ababiri, etc. We are doing a survey and shall keep updates flowing in as the camping date approaches.
Otherwise, members who will be able to commute from home or from Kampala will be good to go! For further inquiries of accomodation arrangements, call me (Rogers) on 0776960740/0706060740
