About me

Main informations about me and what I love to do.

Hello , I'm Samson Goddy

A software engineer who believes in changing the world in his way. An open source advocate, primarily maintaining the Sugar Labs projects , the organization behind the Linux flavored interface called Sugar Desktop. I vibe with code these days because I am more community focus. I am the co-founder of Open Source Community Africa, a project that I care about because it allows me to reflect my love for open source while building large projects that help the budding open source community in Africa. I serve as one of the board members for Open Source Collective, a project that helps sustain open source projects through the open collective platform. A board of directors with Sugar Labs, inc the new organization behind the Sugar Desktop project, previously served as an oversight board with the organization, primarily focusing on growth(marketing) and partnerships.

Out of my open source world, I consult with African governments on technology, led programs for state governments and federal governments. I currently consult for the International Telecommunication Union, the African Union, and the UN women to bring more women into technology on the continent through the AGGCI project.
