Florent Youzan: le « JERRY Do It Together », exemple d’appui stratégique à la formation par l’expérimentation.
(*)«Dis-moi et j’oublie. Montre-moi et je me souviens. Implique-moi et je comprends», c’est en ces termes que Confucius présentait en lettres d’or sa vision de l’instruction, de l…

Découvrez l’histoire du 1er atelier Jerry organisé par le tout jeune et surmotivé Jerry Clan Bénin !
Malgré les coupures d’électricité, l’évènement a été un grand succès avec la naissance de 3 bébés Jerrys
Les amis du Fablab Togo les ont rejoint pour partager leur savoir sur l’impression 3D et gagner en expérience pour organiser des ateliers Jerry dans leur communauté.
La communauté africaine grossit très rapidement sous l’impulsion de personnes qui souhaitent démocratiser l’outil informatique, c’est vraiment formidable ! =D
Last month I’ve made a vibrant call to “Close the Incubators and Accelerators, and Open FabLabs and MakerSpaces instead”, simply because Africa needs more people with the skills to fabricate something than additional people with oratory prowess.

Our trip wouldn’t be possible without the full support of our new Algerian friends.
ShellMates Club from ESI is the first non-profit technical organization dedicated to networks and web security in Algeria. Supported by the wise Association Universitaire de la Francophonie, OpenMindsClub from USTHB organizes Linux Install Party and offers various trainings to students.
Both of them gathers energetic and talented students, who are curious about how technologies can be used for innovative purpose. They did a SUPER GREAT job to co-organize JerrySchool with us and mobilize more than one hundred students from their campus! BIG UP =D
As soon as we arrive, the Club Scientifique de l’ESI asks us if they can make a Jerry even before the launching of JerrySchool. Engaged in promoting innovation, they organized several startup weekends in Algiers.
The problem they are facing: Campus connection system is limited to 600Mo/day/student.
They rise a challenge for Jerry : Using the software CNTML to add a proxy to mutualise and divide up the quotas between students of the club.
The president of the club, Mehdi, becomes the SCRUM master and boosts the 12 members to collaborate to make their Jerry CSE come true.
The particularity of this Jerry is to be sewed with fishing wire, a very useful user innovation we keep on Jerry’s wiki.
After hours of cutting sewing and coding, JerryCSE is turned on on Saturday afternoon 22nd. The 12 members are on FIRE when the screen lights on! It is really a great job chrikis!
Cant wait to see how other clubs will react when seeing your self-manage web access… ;)
Anonymous asked: What are your components?
Jerry can host more different types of components than a regular computer black box. Because there is more room to attach them inside.
We use end of life components anyone can find in old computers. To create a basic computer or server, you need a power supply, a motherboard and a hard drive. And Wifi is always fun if can find a router ;)

The growth of Jerry Family is now spreading to Algeria. We are pleased to welcome a new branch on the family tree: Salam Alikoum =)
Thanks to the precious help of JerryClan members of Shellmates & OpenMindsClub, we are launching Jerry School : 5 days of workshop during which volunteers make Jerrys to install free & open source softwares. These Jerry will give access to IT services for non-profit purpose.
We came to Algeria to facilitate the making of several Jerry by its future users.
During one week, we met students at Ecole Supérieure d’Informatique and Université des Sciences et de la Technologie Houari Boumediene to present them Jerry-School and issues about digital divide. We wanted to raise aweraness about the great potential given by their studies in computer science.
As most of us, they understand the impact of technologies on how we interact with the world and its people. But these tools are not yet thought for general interest. Students understand well they have a central role to build a fair digital society, but there are only a few inclusive tech projects lead by hacker ethic… Lets challenge this status quo together =)
That’s why we asked them how they would use a Jerry to help their clubs or to launch an innovative project. We are exploring together how to design ICT systems to sustain cultural and economic development.
First, makers discover how it is easy to self-manage their Jerry production thanks to SCRUM methodology. Features of the desired Jerry are declined into tasks. Each couple of person is responsible for the task. Each project owner present its vision of the future Jerry before launching the Sprints. At the end of each Sprint, the team checks the tasks done and learn how to progress faster for the next Sprint. It works way better than you can imagine. ;)
More news of this collective adventure very soon!
We are very happy to Jerry workshops start in Algiers: JERRY-SCHOOL.
Thanks to our devoted JerryClan, things are very well engaged to hack Jerrycans and to turn them into development booster by providing low cost infrastructure to innovative projects.

Hope you are having a great time as us, we go to the playa =D
