Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)

Kiwix is an offline reader (free software) that allows offline access to Wikipedia, the Gutenberg library, TED talks and much more. But what if you could access content not from one but from two dozen devices at the same time?

We built a cross-platform point-and-click installer that installs your content on a Raspberry pi and turns it into a wifi hotspot and voilà, you now have an inexpensive solution to distribute your content in places with bad connectivity.

This lecture will show what contents are available, how the installer works, and will include a live demo.

[fr] Kiwix est lecteur hors ligne libre permettant l'accès en local à Wikipedia, la bibliothèque Gutemberg, TED talks et bien plus. Et si vous pouviez accéder à du contenu non pas avec un mais plusieurs appareil à la fois en même temps ?

Nous avons développé un installateur qui installe du contenu sur un Raspberry pi et le configure en point d'accès wifi. Vous avez maintenant une solution pour diffuser du contenu dans des endroits avec un mauvais accès internet.

Cette présentation montrera le contenu disponible, comment l'installateur fonctionne et il y aura une démonstration en live.

What will attendees take away from this session?

Attendees should be able to understand how to use the installer and be able to use it for their own purpose.
