IDLELO is a Southern African word meaning "Common Grazing Ground". IDLELO captures the essence of Free Software and Open Source Foundation for Africa's (FOSSFA's) existence as well as the fundamental objective of the conference. The original idea of an African conference on FOSS and the Digital Commons was born at about the same time as FOSSFA itself.
About the Conference
The IDLELO 5 Conference offers a real opportunity to discuss new issues, tackle complex problems and find advanced enabling solutions able to shape new trends in FOSS and related technologies on the African continent.
