Almost everything we do at Kenga Solutions is done with open source software, including images, presentations and videos. All of these make use of some kind of graphic design elements. I was recently asked what we use, so here is a short blog post to answer the question.
Chad Fowler, General Manager of Developer Advocacy at Microsoft and well known figure in the software world, recently gave a talk entitled The Future Of Software Development. Chad is described as an internationally known software developer, trainer, manager, speaker, and musician.
There is no doubt that the Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) policy of the South African government has been a colossal failure, yet another victim of the Zuma years. One wonders, now that we are moving beyond the Zumafication years, with massive corruption and state capture, whether our FOSS policy can be rekindled. Perhaps it could be in the context of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), where free and open thinking could have a positive impact on our ability as a nation to claim some of the new technology developments. It need not be just software, free and open can apply to anything.
