Marco Fioretti interviewed Bernie in Paraguay about his ongoing work there. From the interview:
The main reason of my work in this country was to bring our end users as close as possible to the developers: our development model cannot work without quick feedback from the trenches. Luckily, I found a lot of talent and interest for programming among the young people of Caacupè. Last March I started to meet some of them them every week to teach them how to develop software for Sugar. We call this the “Caacupé hackfest” and it’s going pretty well.
It’s a nice followup to the XO customization posted last month.
