It’s that time again when the Ushahidi ninjas package what they have been working on – 2.7 version of the platform. This release is dubbed Bamako!! It is quite a huge one with many changes including some security fixes. (We name all our software releases after cities in Africa.)
In the weekly, we’ve got Crowdmap teasers, a water stewardship Deployment of the Week and are featuring the Omidyar Report on Accelerating Entrepreneurship in Africa.
You’ve landed here because you are interested in how to get started. Using Ushahidi or Crowdmap Classic requires a bit more than just creating a map with hope that folks will discover and use it.
We’ve got Code Release updates, code to test, digital security tips from Mexico and a request to vote for Webbies in this Week’s Ushahidi Community Report.
