Node.js Africa by Agiri Abraham Jr.
Node.js Africa is an open source group that is dedicated to expanding Node.js to the continent of Africa. This group's goal is to build a community in Africa that is focused on educating those who are interested in this open source community. Some of their main areas of focus are Node.js modules, best practices in designing Node.js modules, and best practices with documentation.
The increase in popularity and versatility of Node.js has helped spark many of these types of groups which in turn only helps fuel the popularity of Node.js as a viable open source technology.
