Code For South Africa use technology to promote informed decision making for social change.
This talk points out some of the tech and principles we use to maximise our positive impact on society. From building a data gathering platform for citizen journalists, to releasing government financial data, FLOSS and a lean process helps deliver the best bang for the buck in these important partnerships.
