Report: openSUSE conference 2014, Dubrovnik.

One more fan-freakin-tastik openSUSE conference is over. Thank you Dubrovnik and local organizers for such fantabulous conference. Your city is beautiful. Too bad that the weather wasn’t sunny all the time (don’t forget that Dubrovnik is touristic city). The old city was dope. I mean it’s very cool to stay inside the walls, go to school there. Of course restaurants, bars etc are expensive there, but still it’s so cool!!!

Personally don’t understand why everyone in the community linked Dubrovnik with Game of thrones series. It’s a Hollywood product. Maybe I’m the only one that don’t watch it. On the other hand, I saw the cruelty of civil war during 91-94 and the siege of Dubrovnik that lasted for 7 months. Of course a theme couldn’t use that, since it’s politics (although Game of Thrones has copyrights and it’s better not to use it either).


Greeks, Brazilians, Germans and Czechs.

On Sunday, November 10th, I had a presentation at Association of Greek Users and Friends of FS/OSS – GreekLUG. The subject was “Desktop Environment and GNOME community”.

I analyzed:
1. How to use GNOME-Shell and the difference between the versions
2. Customization of GNOME-Shell
3. GNOME community

There were questions about what new features come with GNOME 3.10.

1st event of Linux and Free Software Community, University of Macedonia, Thessaloniki

1st event of Linux and Free Software Community, University of Macedonia, Thessaloniki

Linux and Free Software Community of University of Macedonia (Thessaloniki, Greece) gathered as team to promote GNU/Linux to their university. So they had their initial event on Tuesday October 22nd at 20.00 at their university.

I had a talk about the use of GNOME-shell and as second issue, I covered the Greek and global community (download the presentation). The audience didn’t know much about FOSS and GNOME. So that’s why we decided to have the how to use part of the presentation. At the second part, I analyzed the why and where someone can contribute. I also presented Outreach Program for Women and I had 2 women interested on this.

SerLUG, this year turns 5 years old. They celebrate it with a day conference and after night party on March 11th, 2013. I was invited to present something for many reasons:

1. They’re very close friends of mine but also of openSUSE community.
2. They wanted a smiple presentation about how to use GNOME and what is unique on openSUSE. The reason of a simple presentation was the audience. They expected mostly windows users and they wanted many of them to join and help SerLUG.
3. Promote openSUSE conference.

Gnome 3.6 Release Party, Thessaloniki (Greece), October 7th, 2012

Thessaloniki, October 7th 2012. We gathered together to celebrate Gnome version 3.6. This time there wasn’t any cake like the last time, but people were discussing about open source projects, communities, future events. The goal of this gathering was to meet once again with friends and have fun. As you can see from the pictures, we didn’t have enough space for everyone, so some were sitting outside.

You can see some pictures here:

Here’s the album.

See you next time!!!
