Going to GUADEC 2013!

Hooray!

Thanks to the GNOME Foundation, I will be attending this years’ GUADEC. Once again I’m having the terrifc opportunity of meeting my fellow GNOMErs in-real-life, meet new ones, and help this community be as awesome as it already is.

I’ve never been to East Europe, so any tips from people who’ve been to Czech Republic would be welcome!

I’m also a volunteer, so you can count me in to help in anyway I can.

See you all in August 1st at Brno, Czech Republic!

Bye FISL 14! See you all next year!

Last week I attended the 14th edition of the Free Software International Forum (FISL) in Porto Alegre, Brazil. It was a great opportunity to see in real life people I see daily on IRC/mail-lists/social networks.

I live in Pelotas, which is located 270 km far from my state’s capital, Porto Alegre, so I couldn’t miss this rare chance of meeting my fellow gnomers. We had a community meeting where we’ve discussed GNOME activities in Brazil and some directions GNOME has taken over the past few releases. We have also heard a lot of feedback from GNOME users at the community meeting (some related to design decisions, other to distros delivering GNOME software, and etc). It was pretty exciting!

Besides the GNOME related activities, I’ve attended some really nice presentations and discussions on free software and specific technologies. I’d highlight these in particular:

See you in FISL 15!
