Oh, sorry Rexford. Contacts are not normally shared at breakout sessions.
We'd make a note to fix that. Cced Rachel.

We can contact those who were at Barcamp Koforidua to ask who was in the
session. If you send me a picture of the session, I could recognize people
and give you contacts :-)

>From what transpired, it was a good session and people learnt a lot.

We can target edits to the Koforidua, Koforidua Technical University and
ANUC pages.

Thanks for the pictures.

Barcamp Accra dey. But there be Barcamp Ho, Kumasi and Sunyani before that.
