By cooperation we are learning how to organize and build up the camp, and in extension of that how to build up a local communtiy to run a public wireless network.

By sharing knowlegde we improve our skills. We learn and teach to by hands-on practical training. We learn by doing. Organising an event or project is a training in leadership.

Care is a base to work and trust the good intentions of people we work with. Care creates safety to learn, to make errors and correct them.

We have an excelent training program offering all the knowlegde how to start a public wireless network. Most of the knowledge can be used for other projects as well. The program contains the building of antennas, the usage of open source software to build wireless routers and servers and.

What we are going to do:

13-14 august building up campsite + opening session
15-17 august open source training program
18-19 august community event, antenna building and measuring

The Wifisoft.org Foundation
Wifisoft.org is a not-for-profit organization that initiates, stimulates and evolves local and international cooperation between communities that administrate a public wireless network. The main infrastructure for Wifisoft.org is the Internet. On http://wifisoft.org communities can create their own workspace. Besides the yearly WCC there are other smaller events focussed on optical links, and software development.

Once a year we organize a Wireless Community Camp. Here we organize and facilitate lectures and hands-on workshops.

We hope the see you at the WCC2007.
