#JSKongressGoesGhana: JS Kongress Munich X Facebook Developer Circle: Accra joint meetup with a lot of great community people

For JS Kongress in March 2019, Oliver (picture above: first row middle, white shirt) couldn’t join us due to visa issues. The thought originated and the idea grew: “If you cannot join us, then we’ll come to you”. #JSKongressGoesGhana has been born.

Half a year later, Jowe and Marco S from the JS Kongress Orga-Team set off from Munich, Germany to Accra, Ghana 7233 km away to meet Oliver and the local community.

Their time in Ghana started with a cozy community dinner, where they met some community leaders.

Then, the big day came, on Saturday, October 26 the joint meetup JS Kongress Munich X Facebook Developer Circle: Accra took place.

In the afternoon, there has been a room full of passion 💗 and interest 💡, a welcoming and vibrant community. 🌈 Thank you all for joining and participating!

Thanks 🙏 to all speakers and panelists: @KiddBubu, @silentworks, @gideonaduku, @codeprophet, @yamoateng, @jowe, @Schnapumpel13
