Meet Chinwendu Nwazojie, Chapter lead from Open Source Community Africa.
Chinwendu (ch-when-do) has managed multiple students communities. The communities were focused on helping newbies advance their career in tech and also organising activities that will foster team bonding and resource sharing.
At Swarm this year Chinwendu will talk us through open source communities and how to make them secure.
