The Web2forDev story: towards a community of practice

The authors recount how the process of organising the Web2forDev conference has contributed to building a community of practice. The authors reflect on the successes and challenges of adopting Web 2.0 and other ICT tools to create online collaborative spaces for the conference organisers. In addition, the authors draw on results from two conference surveys to assess what impact the conference has had on both the participants and their ways of working and in helping to form and maintain a new Web2forDev community of practice.
