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

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.
