Are There Only 4,527 Open Source Software Developers in All of Africa?
August 26, 2013 Editor 0
In an effort to help promote, highlight and grow Africa coders Matt Berg created a Mapbox map which shows the location and density existing GitHub users (primarily programmers) in Africa.
Looking at the map, I am shocked that only 4,527 African software developers are on GitHub – just 0.12% of all GitHub users. That makes me want to have answers to questions like:
- Are there only 4,527 Open Source software developers on the continent?
- How many non-Open Source developers are there?
- Where do African Diaspora locate themselves on GitHub?
- Are African developers just not using GitHub or is there another, secret platform they are all hiding on?
Do you have any answers? Love for you to share them in the comments below.
