MobileActive08: Peter Wakholi

In this interview Peter Wakholi, vice head of a department unit and lecturer at Makerere University (the largest university in Uganda), talks about his work on open source applications that allow people to gather data in the field using mobile phones. Some projects involve partners from South Africa, the U.S., and Norway. (See also our earlier blog post about the EpiHandy project.)

There was just the set up of a mobile development lab, supported by Nokia, at his university. The lab aims at developing mobile applications that fit the African context.

We shot the interview at MobileActive08 (organized by MobileActive and sangonet) in Johannesburg last month, as part of our interview podcast series.
