What happens ats Serras stays ats Serras

SerLUG event poster

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!!!

2nd openSUSE collaboration summer camp report

On July 20-22, I joined the 2nd openSUSE collaboration summer camp.

Participants from almost all FOSS communities (Ubuntu, Fedora, KDE, openSUSE, Gnome, Gentoo, Libre Office), interesting presentations and workshops on our favourite projects. I enjoyed the most the off schedule things. Relaxing, talking and water games (see the pictures). This year, the presentations were in English because there was a participant from SUSE offices from Prague.

This year I had 2 presentations and a workshop.

My first presentation was about ownCloud. Many people found it interesting for a business environment. I gave some live cd with owncloud in a box. You can find my presentation here.

My next presentation had the title Boothing. Not sure if there’s a word but what I wanted to say is how to use the nonverbal communication at the booths we attend at events. How to make the visitor feel safe and friendly to talk to us.

You can find my presentation here.

The last presentation-workshop was about translation some programs of Gnome. I explained the system we use to translate Gnome, I gave some po files to translate them. There was lack of time, so the participants got the files to finish them at home and then upload them to the system.

The event was pretty successful. Next meeting is the openSUSE conference (see below):

2nd openSUSE Collaboration Summer Camp, July 20-22, Katerini-Greece


The images that come to your mind are: sea, suntan, sand games, relax.

Greek openSUSE community combine those images with working our favourite projects and have fun during summer time.

They started last year (check pictures from the event). Greek Gnome community was there, presenting the new Gnome 3 environment (check my presentation in Greek).

This year we will be there with a translation workshop (check the program).

The presentations will be in English, since we have not only Greek participants.

Just in case, someone wants to attend (last minute), can contact summercamp@os-el.gr
