15th Anniversary Linuxwochen Vienna

Mai 11th, 2015 von buergermeister

As all the last year in May the event row called Linuxwochen makes it stop in Vienna and I represented Fedora there. This year it was an special event as the Linuxwochen could celebrate their 15th anniversary. And this years event was indeed special, normally this event is compared to others a smaller one as it is from Thursday to Saturday. But this year it was on Thursday already crowded and it looked some more Germans have found their way to Vienna. Also both of the workshop I gave in Vienna was an success and as always filled with people.
Personally I think the exhibition area was this year a nice one to, as Axiom Apertus Beta was presented there, first that this open source camera was presented in public and also Mozilla did show an TV running Firefox (an TV that you can buy, greetings to Ubuntu).
The social event was this year also a nice one, with an special delicious cake. So it was all in all a win to been there personally as for Fedora.

Linuxwochen Vienna day 3

Mai 12th, 2014 von buergermeister

Day 3 of Linuxwochen Vienna was for me the hardest day, I didnt spent much time on the fedora booth as I had to deliver 1 talk and 2 workshops. It started in the morning with the Fedora A-Z talk, which is always nice and gives the attendees a chance to ask a lot of questions to Fedora and they had a lot of questions. After the talk I had to hurry to get into the next room as I had to give together with Sebastian Wagner an darktable workshop. After two hours explaining darktable modules and what you can do with them, what costs a lot of time the workshop ended. I am still not 100% happy how the workshop went, first the problem with the window size I faced in Chemnitz was there again and this on three different machines with different versions, so it looks is a darktable bug and second if all modules are explained the workshop becomes more an demonstration as an workshop, so I have to work on the content a little bit more. But the around 30 attendees was still happy with the workshop and we got positive feedback.

Direct after the darktable workshop my Inkscape workshop did happen, which had not that many people as the one before but still a lot. All the attendees reached the goal I had with them:

Who wants to repeat to redo the steps we did in the workshop, I prepared an screencast (german) for it which you can find here. The rest of the day I spent on the Fedora booth but it was not a lot of time anymore, just 2 hours and then the Linuxwochen Vienna 2014 ended.

Linuxwochen Vienna day 2

Mai 10th, 2014 von buergermeister

The second day of Linuxwochen Vienna was like always better visited as the first day. As Gergely and Peter arrived also that day we had enough swag to survive the rest of the week. For me it was also the first day where I had an workshop. This time about Blender, there was only 7 people in it, but that is normal on a friday morning.

The rest of the day I spent on the booth and just visited one talk about how to get OSM maps printing ready. In the evening we went together to the Linuxwochen After Hour party and later went for to an restaurant for an Wiener Schnitzel.

  • Linuxwochen Vienna day 1

    Mai 9th, 2014 von buergermeister

    Its the time in the year, I spent some days in the wonderful city of Vienna. First day of the Linuxwochen is always the thursday andits a little bit quieter then the other days but this year there was a lot of visitors. That might be because of the program, in the schedule there was mostly talks about how you can keep your data a little bit more safe.

    We had on the first day no talks or workshops in the program. For me that was very good as I had the crazy idea to come with the night train. I arrived right on time on the venue for preparing the booth. Linuxwochen printed us a nice poster and I brought the table cloth and everything I had left on swag, just to survive the first day. It was really everything gone in the evening.

    Conclusion Linuxwochen Vienna

    Mai 6th, 2013 von buergermeister

    Linuxwochen 2013 in Vienna are over now, it was 3 days with a lot of talks. The program had 100 different talks and workshops and most of them was really filled up. As the Linuxwochen was this year in the new building of UAS Vienna, there was plenty of space for the exhibition, but not a lot of booths. Hopefully there will be more next year otherwise the exhibition is not interesting. Otherwise we had a lot of conversations and the 3D printer rocked again.
    Personally I had 3 talks and 3 workshops, my talks was scheduled all for the first day. The talk about doing animations with Linux and Open Source was well visited and also the following talk about how to do slides with Inkscape. Interesting for me I doing this talk since over 3 years and its still new to the people, that it can be done. Last talk at that day was the introducion of the Fedora Design Suite and as it was the last talk on the day, there was not so lot of people as in my other talks.
    On friday I had the first workshop at 2pm and it was good visited, there was 22 people and that is the optimal amount of people. For this workshop I had to switch to english as there was guests from aborad. If there is more interest in Brno, we can also do one of my Inkscape weekends there. The other two workshops I had on saturday beginning in the morning with the Blender one after a short lunch break the second Inkscape workshop followed. Also here they was filled up.
    The system for the schedule the Linuxwochen use allows the visitors to vote for the talks and the speaker can see them, so I looked yesterday if I have comments on my talks and workshop and I already had for most of them good votes and comments. One comment said it’s already time that somebody starts to talk about how to do animations with Linux and Open Source. Actually I think about doing an workshop for that but the problem is, it’s for users and as Tupi isnt packaged for Fedora or openSUSE yet, it’s not possible. For Debian and Ubuntu there are packages but they are outdated. So we will see if in the future also workshops for animations can be done. So on the end Linuxwochen was a good event for me and I think I will be there 2014 again.

    day +3 LGM/Linuxwochen

    Mai 9th, 2012 von buergermeister

    Saturday the 5th of May was the last day of Libre Graphics Meeting and also of the Linuxwochen Vienna. It was the day of Beastie and Puffy invasion, because the european BSDday.eu was also in the venue. In the morning I had again a Inkscape workshop on the Linuxwochen, which was better visited as the one on the day before. So I had no time for the talks at the Libre Graphics Meeting. After a short lunch break a second workshop followed. It was a workshop about the whole workflow for preparing magazines/books and of course working with free software. Planned was to prepare a book with all the paper of LGM in that workshop, but I only got 3 of them. So on the end it was more a BoF-session about all the work which have to be done preparing a magazin or book. Thats already a lot, book sizes, book layout, font decission and all that.

    After the workshop my voice was gone at least until I had a drink. But I needed not really my voice anymore that day. I joined Pete Ippels talk Transitional Work Flow For Artists Making The Libre Graphics Leap and and It Builds Character a talk from Nathan Willies introducing new free software tools for font development. After that the LGM ended and there was a short discussion where the next one should be. So next LGM will be in Madrid and there are some voices doing it in Asia. And thats problematic, there are to much people who like to protect what they have, an LGM in Europe or Montreal. But we will see…

    The day ended for most of us in the same restaurant we went on tuesday evening, so that meant “Schnitzel” for the most of us. This time the crowed was bigger as in tuesday so we needed another table extra. But we stayed not to long as some of us, already started there travelling home directly from there or at the next morning.

    Nicu managed already to upload most of his pictures and Mizmo did also made a bigger upload. For Taticas pictures I think we have to wait for a few days, she is in “zombie mode” after her arrival at home yesterday evening.

    day +2 LGM/Linuxwochen

    Mai 9th, 2012 von buergermeister

    Friday the 4th of May was the 3rd day of Libre Graphics Meeting and the 2nd of Linuxwochen Vienna. The day of the goat invasion or the day I had not really fun. Why, I missed all the talks I was really interested in. For example Johan Engelen with the development of Powerstroke in Inkscape. I missed them because I had at the same time an Inkscape workshop on Linuxwochen. The workshop wasnt so crowed as they normally are. Because it was friday in the morning, a lot of people have to work. But there was no other time slot left. So I couldnt enjoy all the interesting talks from the GIMP world.

    At 3pm was a bigger slot with an panel: Doing Design In The World Of FLOSS which Mizmo, Allan Day and me was planned for, Peter Sikking joined us also. The problem sitting on the end means, very often the points are taken. After that I skipped one talk and watched later Nicus talk about Free Culture meets Free Software: Wiki Loves Monuments and after that a video presentation from Bassam Kurdali about the Tube movie project. I had an conversation with Bassam a week before LGM started about that, because there was the idea to do a free movie session on the Linuxwochen after party on friday. But before we went to that, there was another q/talk planned like the day before. This time about open hardware, Pete Ippel talked about the MilkyMist One, Richard Hughes about the ColorHug and normally Mickey Lauer was planned but he didnt make it, so Zoltan joined the round and talked about the Nanonote.

    After the q/talk I played again the role of a tourist guide and we went to the MuseumsQuartier. That is one of the places I like most, there is a lot of art and its also a place for Geeks as there is the quartier 21 for digital art and life style. The Linuxwochen after party wasnt invaded from LGM people like Nicu wrote, it was actually planned this way. Normally the after party its just a bigger table with arround 20 people as the most speakers are on there way home after there talk. Thats a problem of a longer event, you will never get all together. I tried to show some free movies, but it was already to late for that. On the social event Elisa de Castro Guerra went to me and used one of the few chances to speak with me, it was actually funny, because she works also for Doudou Linux, where I did last year made a submission to the Logo Contest and we had time to talk a little bit about it. Later we went for a couple of hours to the Metalab, Viennas hackerspace, which isnt far from the MQ and then home.

    day +1 LGM/LinuxWochen

    Mai 8th, 2012 von buergermeister

    May the 3rd was the second day of Libre Graphics Meeting and the first one of Linuxwochen Vienna. So in the foyer of the UAS Technikum opened the exhibition area and also DrupalDay.at and the first talks of Linuxwochen helped to fill the area with people. Of course there was a Fedora booth at the exhibition and it was the biggest one. I brought the table cloth and one of the rollups to Vienna, and also what was left from FOSDEM on stickers. Mizmo brought also some stickers and flyers and also some DesignSuite DVD. Zoltan brought cheatcubes, DVD and an OLPC. So the booth was well prepared. The Fedora booth was also photographed from the Der Standard and published on his online platform. As you can see not only the both was photographed, also Taticas keynote was topic. She had later an interview with Der Standard and got there own article. The topic on migration to Linux is really from interest for the people in Vienna, as the migration in that city failed and they have to spent now again every year a lot of mon€y for licenses. On the end the topic was from so much interest, that the organizers decided to give a second slot to Tatica speaking about the situation arround Open Source in Latinamerica. Together we managed the spontaneously additional talk.

    On the Libre Graphics Meeting side Mizmo and Emichan had their talk: An awesome FLOSS design collaboration workflow presenting SparkleShare, Magic Mockup, GlitterGallery and DesignHub. I didnt see a lot of talks on LGM on this day, but this one I didnt miss. The day on the event ended with an traditional q/talk from q/uintessenz. The topic on that panel discussion was “Open Content, Free Culture” the guests was Pete Ippel, Ricardo Lafuente and Ana Carvalho who work together on Libre Graphics Magazin and the guy who does always Free & Open Movie Nights, I think he is called gnokii ;) So an second additional talk at this day. We didnt went out for dinner this evening and I prepared a dinner in our appartment, “Zwiebelkuchen” and 2 nice bottle of wine.

    day -1 LGM/Linuxwochen

    Mai 8th, 2012 von buergermeister

    I should call this day the “cat herding day”, because it was the day of most of the arrivals. Was also a day where I had to learn some things, first of all check your phone that it is working and the second if you meet on a subway station, tell the people they should not get out and wait downstairs, otherwise its really hard to find the person you like to meet. But we managed the fetch all the people we expected. First arrivals was Nicu and Emily. Both arrived nearly at the same time but the problem they didnt know each other and in the case of Emily I didnt know the flight number she arrives with. But both managed to get to the appartment alone. The cool thing was, we had directly before our house a cafe with an “Schanigarten” so we could sitting outside drinking a “Melange” waiting for them. After they put there luggage into the appartment, we moved to the next meeting point. The next meeting point was also a cafe in the 7th district so nearly downtown, I had ordered a table there before for all of us and we had a nice brunch there.

    Zoltan and Geri arrived also to late at there appartment, so I was sitting on a hot chair not missing the next meeting. But that was one of the points for the brunch, I also had can the group left there fetching Mizmo and Hughsie and come later back. But they managed it in time and they went with me fetching the others. But it took us really a lot of time to find them, so no sightseeing on the rest of the day. So we went all back to our appartments and went later to an restaurant. We was really a big crowd there because Behdad, Miska, Pete Ippel and later Christian Jeitler from the Linuxwochen team joined us also. So the fedorians get mixed with other LGMers. So we had a lot of nice conversations there and Tatica realized first time how big a “Wiener Schnitzel” should be ;) But we stayed not to long because most was tired from the travel and next day LGM would start in the morning. The sad part on this evening was that Kai-Uwe didnt join us, because he liked to prepare his slides for the talks on the next day. Hughsie was not happy about that, but we managed that both had time together later in the week.

I started today at 8am at my home for going to Vienna, first way was to Dresden and from there with the train to Vienna. We arrived short after 8pm on Vienna Meidling and after that we went to ur appartment.

She came really with the last flight from Madrid, so now we sitting all in the appartment drink a glass of wine, write mails and do some work. Tomorrow (in a few hours) Mizmo and Emichan will arrive and our appartment is complete. It was really hot today and we all are really tired from the travel.

  • Linuxwochen Vienna

    April 23rd, 2012 von buergermeister

    The Linuxwochen are an special kind of event, its not one event its an kind of road show turing trough Austria. The tour stops in Krems, Eisenstadt, Graz, Wien, Linz and all events are in the period of April and May. Next week the tour will take place in the capital of Austria – Vienna and Fedora will participate in this event. The Linuxwochen are not the only event which takes place at this time and in the Building of UAS Technikum Vienna. The community arround floss graphics and graphic tools will also come together, as I wrote before.

    Now the schedule (first day, second day, third day) of the talks for Linuxwochen is also published and we can talk a little bit about it. The Linuxwochen will opened with an talk some of us might know. Tatica will have the openining talkVenezuela – An Entire Country Migrates To Linux. There is a little story behind, why the organizers decided to make it as an keynote. The city of Vienna started 2005 to migrate to Linux, they also developed like Munich there own Linux distribution called Wienux. The migration failed and the development of Wienux stopped 2009. So its a little bit a show that it can be done.

    But this will not our only part in the schedule of talks. I by myself will deliver 2 workshops working with Inkscape. But there is more, Zoltan Hoppar will introduce Nanonote and Milkymist as open hardware and will also have an workshop about Password Hygiene – Things that you must know about your password. Gergely Rákosi will show the audience, that Gaming on Fedora – How to enjoy gaming on Fedora linux,natively and with Wine is possible. Jiří Eischmann will show students that they can have a carrier in the FLOSS world and together with Jaroslav Řezník he will show the audience How to Contribute to Fedora Project. Jaroslav will also deliver an workshop Qt 5 Hereafter. Jiří Vanek will show the Path To OpenJDK 8 and Michal Privoznik will show Virtualization on Desktops. Together with the talks from LibreGraphicsMeeting, I count a sum of 18 talks, would say we topped the good participation in CLT definitly.  Of course we will have also a booth for fedora in the small exhibition area, next to the Red Hat booth. Fedora blue will definitive a recognizable color on that event.

    Meine Beiträge Linuxwochen Wien

    April 18th, 2012 von buergermeister

    Es ist ja gerade mal noch 2 Wochen hin, bis die Linuxwochen in Wien beginnen. Auch dieses Jahr werde ich auf dieser Veranstaltung präsent sein. Dieses Jahr allerdings mit weniger Beiträgen als in den Vorjahren. Grund dafür ist das gleichzeitig statt findende LibreGraphicsMeeting, auf dem ich auch mit Vorträgen beteiligt bin und so habe ich dieses Jahr im Programm der Linuxwochen nur zwei Workshops über Inkscape.

    Wie versprochen gibt es neue Inhalte, dass scheint auch nötig zeigen sich doch einige Personen immer wieder in meinen Workshops. Ich hoffe, das ist weil denen die Teilnahme Spaß bereitet und nicht das sie öfter kommen müssen, weil sie Inkscape bei mir nicht begreifen ;) .

    Einen Workshop wird es Freitag vormittags geben, den nenne ich “Sexy Jeans” und in diesem Workshop geht es darum, was man alles mit Hilfe von Filtern und den LPE (Live Path Effects) erreichen kann. Der zweite Workshop ist dann am Samstag vormittag und den habe ich “Grinsen, kann jeder genannt” es geht darum ein eigenes Emoticon-Set zu kreieren. Neben einigen Grundlagen der Arbeit mit Inkscape kommt hier der Batchexport zum Einsatz.

    Für alle denen das dann noch nicht an Zeit reicht, die sie mit mir an diesem Tag verbracht haben, nach dem Mittag habe ich einen Workshop im Programm des LibreGraphicsMeeting, in dem es um die Handhabung von Scribus geht. In diesem Workshop sollen die Paper des LibreGraphicsMeeting zu einem Buch verarbeitet werden. Also wer noch ein wenig Scribus erlernen möchte, sollte da richtig sein.

    LibreGraphicsMeeting – Schedule

    April 10th, 2012 von buergermeister

    The program schedule for LibreGraphicsMeeting in Vienna is now published. If you are intereste, you can find the comlete schedule here. On 2nd May the first day of LibreGraphicsMeeting the main topics are Color Management and reverse engineering of some file formats. On that day, I will give my first talk “Taxi DB – Call A Cab To Bring The Colors” about the internet color profile database – Taxi. It’s mostly the same talk as I gave on FOSDEM in february. This day will be really interesting.
    On the second day Mizmo and Emichan will have there first talk – “An awesome FLOSS design collaboration workflow” I am very sure the talk who follows that talk – “The importance of new tools to enable collective design process” fits exactly to it.
    On friday, I am really interested in the talk of Johan Engelen about -”Powerstroke: variable stroke width in Inkscape” hopefully I can visit it, but I fear not because I submitted also 2 workshops to Linuxwochen and after my experience they will scheduled on friday and saturday. And on friday it has to be scheduled in the morning because on 3pm I have together with Mizmo and Allan Day another talk – “Doing Design In The World Of FLOSS”. Nicu Buculei will also have at that day an talk – “Free Culture meets Free Software: Wiki Loves Monuments”
    Saturday if mostly animation programs like SynfigStudio and Tupi topic. But talks like “Remake – build system for animation projects” are also interesting. But I will have no time visiting them, first as I said I will have an workshop on Linuxwochen and at 1pm I will have an workshop – “Open Source, Just Works – The LGM Book Workshop” where I try with visitors of LGM and Linuxwochen to produce a book with the papers of the talks from LibreGraphicsMeeting. The idea behind that workshop is simple, Linuxwochen always asked me for an workshop about Scribus. The problem with this is for me simple, you can sit down with the participants and doing something with Scribus and hopefully they see how it works. I have another opinion on that, I always doing my workshops in the way to give the participants a target, which is useful. So later the participants can be proud of what they have done and see that they can doing things with free tools, its the most what you can reach in a 3-4 hours workshop. If I reach the target the book will be published and available at amazon and all participants will named in it. The profit flows back to LibreGraphicsMeeting and will be used for covering the travel costs for the 2013 edition of LGM.
    Some might have the question where on LGM comes Tatica in, because there was a donation campaign for her travelling to LGM Vienna. First of all we reached mostly the goal of 2.500US$ and a few weeks ago we booked the flights to Vienna. We got a cheaper flight as we calculated and 3 weeks ago I booked an appartment which brings the costs for accomodation also down to arround 200€ instead of the calculated 300€. So Tatica will participate on LibreGraphicsMeeting and Linuxwochen, where she submitted 2 talks “One Of The World’s Largest FLOSS Events – FLiSoL” and “Venezuela – An Entire Country Migrates To Linux” especially in the 2nd one are the organizers interested, because Vienna had like Munich his own Linux distribution once but the migration failed. So she will have definitly an talk at Linuxwochen. We will know it, when the program of Linuxwochen comes out. So Fedora will have an good and very visible participation on LibreGraphicsMeeting. Fedora of course will also participate on Linuxwochen, which is on same time and building, about that later more.

    status update on Tatica travels to LGM

    Februar 27th, 2012 von buergermeister

    A month ago I asked for help with collecting some money for support Tatica that she can go to LibreGraphicsMeeting in Vienna. Time for make an little status report. We have 38 donations until yet and raised 1,257.00$. Also time to say thx to many people like Bert Desmet, Christoph Wickert, Ankur Sinha, Jaroslav Reznik, Emily Dirsh and many many more. Even from the openSUSEcommunity and Libre Graphics Meeting folks came some money.

    So whats the status now? As I said we raised 1257$ on Pledgie, but that means not we have so much, because Pledgie gets 3% and Paypal gets also 2,9% and 0.30$ for each donation. That means we raised 1171,44$ right now. Thats not enough for the flight tickets, I searched with Tatica for tickets and the cheapest we found was a flight from Iberia for 1072€ what means 1436,48 US$. But we already missed the point for booking this flight, now tickets are arround 1120€ what means arround 1500US$. At least we have to pay maybe some money to Paypal for exchange from $ to €. So we still need some money only for booking the flights. So plz help us to raise this money. The Pledgie campaign can be found here.

    Linuxwochen Wien 2011

    April 22nd, 2011 von buergermeister

    Zur Zeit tourt ja Tux wieder durch Österreich und macht in einigen Städten des Landes mit Veranstaltungen Station. Vom 5.-7. Mai wird die Linux-Roadshow in Wien gastieren. Dieses Jahr mal nicht in einem der vielen Rathäuser in der Innenstadt sondern im Technikum Wien. Am Donnerstag wird sich das Programm hauptsächlich um Linux und Open Source in Wirtschaft und Verwaltung drehen. Wie immer wird es am Ende des Tages eine Diskussionsrunde geben, am Donnerstag “Linux in Unternehmen, Windows am Home PC?” und am Freitag “Offene Standards, offene Daten, transparente Verwaltung?”. Mehr dazu findet man auf den Webseiten der Linuxwochen Wien.

    Ich selbst werde in Wien einen Vortrag “Gimp, Incskape & Co – Grafik mit Open Source” haben, der versucht einen Ãœberblick über die Werkzeuge zu geben, mit denen man seine Arbeit mit Grafiken unter Linux erledigen kann. Ausserdem und wie soll es anders sein, kann man dann noch mit mir fleissig Gimpen oder mit Inkscape zeichnen. Am Freitag und Samstag gibt es jeweils 2 Workshops mit mir, jeweils einen zu Gimp und einen zu Inkscape. Also falls jemand Zeit hat und den weiten Weg nach Wien nicht scheut, vorbeischauen auf den Linuxwochen Wien.

    I have only a few words to this event. The pic is taken at Museumsquartier downtown Vienna at Launch Party. Thx go to Michl for helping me find a speaker for the event, Gerald Pfeifer for be that speaker and make the journey to Vienna and thx goes to quintessenz e.V. for organizing the rooms and the party himself.
