I’ve just returned from TechCamp Yangon that has been organized by the organization MIDO. The event was very successful and a great opportunity to meet people and present mycitizen.net together with the current version of the mobile app. The format of TechCamp is slightly different than other “camps” – starting with a very brief introduction and then offering trainings in groups. Later, local civil society organizations came up with concrete requests for advice and assistance to overcome obstacles in their work.
Particularly the installation of mycitizen.net on my tiny laptop that could be accessed via the local WiFi network attracted much attention since the speed was noticeably higher than what we were able to achieve via the Internet in Myanmar.
