Kenya (Nairobi) is the 1st stop of the Python African Tour 2nd edition, focused on contributing to the Bungeni project.
This training event is organised by Africa i-Parliaments Action Plan and the University of Nairobi.
Bungeni is an open source "Parliamentary and Legislative Information" System that aims at making Parliaments more open and accessible to citizens thus virtually allowing them " inside Parliament" or "Bungeni" the Kiswahili word for "inside Parliament". Bungeni is composed of a suite of applications each of which provides specific services including Parliamentary Information Management and Workflow, Content Management and Archival and Retrieval. These services are provided by different applications - but visually the end-user is provided a unified visual experience by using a application proxy. The underlying architecture invloves Python (2.6 0r 2.7), Postgres, Zope3, Plone, eXist and Deliverance.
During this week we will introduce the attendees to all these applications and explain how they work together to make up the suite of applications.
