We have a version of the IA server that runs on devices as small as Raspberry Pi's. Its intended for use in places where the internet is absent or poor - expensive, slow or censored. It can serve content from local storage; crawl content to that storage; and act as a proxy. We'd love to get some help cleaning off some of the rough edges to make it usable by our target users - people setting up really remote networks.

Hopes & Dreams
That community networks in remote places will start using this alongside other tools for Wikipedia, Khan Academy; Kolibri; Open Street Maps etc to provide a full range of content

People building community networks; coders who know javascript; people who know how to make RPI's into mesh nodes.

Why Participate?
Help people outside our bubble of great internet access the rich content that allows them to break the cycle of poverty.

Session Rundown
TBD- probably at least one session for community network people; one on setting up RPIs as mesh nodes; and some hacking sessions if people are interested.
