FSE 2017 will take place in December. Until then we’ll be publishing tutorials that will help you be ready to tackle a bigger project this year than last.

What’s FSE doing this year?

FSE is coming back to Ghana and Togo in December 2017. We’ll be taking a bit more time than last time and doing a bigger, better project with all of you. We’ll let you know as soon as we have more specific dates.

In order to help you be ready for when we return we are publishing monthly tutorials. If you follow these tutorials they will get you up to speed and ready for the project in December. In order to plan the tutorials, we’ve been listening to your feedback and we’ll do our best to work to your needs.

We’ve put together a good roster of contributors for this year, which you can see on the home page. Each contributor is specialized in a different field and this should help us to give you a good mix of material.

What can I do to be ready?

Quite a bit!

  • Check back each month on our tutorial page. We’re updating it every month until we return and if you follow the exercises you’ll be ready for the project we’ll be doing together. The first tutorial is up right now – it’s about how to set up a Raspberry Pi.
  • Read up on any topics that you’d like to know more about in the additional literature we link to, or search for it yourself online.
  • Keep track of our announcements via email. Don’t have any yet? You can sign up for them here.
  • If you have questions:
    • Write about them in the comments of the post they’re about
    • Try using the live chat on the FSE channel. You can sign up for it if you like, but you’re also welcome to use it anonymously.
    • You’re also welcome to contact us on Facebook. More and more of our activities will be centered around this webpage and not on Facebook in the future, though.

Using this site and email we will be announcing the new tutorials, as well as offering activities where you can talk to us in real time online periodically. There will also be a few small contests, even with a prize or two for those who stay active, so stay in touch 😉
