I am just about heading home from attending PyConZA 2016 in Cape Town.
PyConZA grew to over 380 attendees this year and there were quite a
number of attendees and speakers from other African countries. I also
understand from the organisers that, for the first time in the history
of PyConZA, they had the budget to institute a structured effort to
supply financial aid. More than ZAR60k was spent to help 11 people from
Namibia, South Africa itself, Tanzania, Uganda and Zimbabwe to get here.
I see the videos of talks are already starting to appear on

Well done to the organisers! Organising an event like this is not easy—I
hope lots of others can learn from your experience and follow your
example elsewhere in Africa.
All eyes now on PyZim in Harare!
