Join Fedora Workshop Phnom Penh II

November 26th, 2014 von buergermeister

On the last weekend there was another Fedora Join Workshop planned and it didnt turn out that well this time, as there was only 4 participants who wanted to know more about Fedora as starting to contribute to Fedora. So I had to switch to introduce them to Fedora instead, well that’s my job as Fedora Ambassador. So I showed them as many as I could and explained a lot and answered all their questions and after 4 hours we finished this little session. But this meant no free time for me, as some saw I might have some free time, they asked me for an fast workshop for Blender so I ended up giving another Blender workshop in Development Innovations 5D Lab, which was fun. So I fetched lesser contributors this time but that is fine, helping people in their start using Fedora is also fine and sooner or later they can be transformed into contributors.

November 24th, 2014 von buergermeister

On friday evening I had another OpenMovieNight, this time in Phnom Penh again at Development Innovations. It turned out as a good event we had around 40 participants and after an short talk about copyright, creative commons licenses, open source and free software, we had a lot of fun with the 33 movies I had chosen for the show.

As some already asked in IRC here is the complete list of movies I presented:

  • Inkscape Workshop Phnom Penh

    November 21st, 2014 von buergermeister

    I had yesterday the opportunity to give an Inkscape workshop at Development Innovations Cambodia in Phnom Penh. The participatns was only from several NGO’s, so called multiplicators and it turned out great. One day isnt that much time, to learn enough about Inkscape to use it in a professional way, but you can get at least the foundations to use it and learn more by yourself. But we had a lot of fun together and there was really some talented people amongst the 23 participants and the best two of them had already Fedora stickers on their laptop, so Open Source community in Cambodia begins to grow.

    Workshop at Smallworld

    November 20th, 2014 von buergermeister

    I am still in Cambodia and after FAD I had on monday and tuesday an workshop about open source graphic tools at Smallworld Cambodia. It was great as always I like being there, its a nice place and its really nice to see how this young people organize to get an better education. The workshop was really good and there was really talented people amongst the particiants. I even managed to help one to install an Fedora on his laptop. The only thing bad was, that my tuesday morning started not so nice with being fetched in the elevator but I was still on time at the place.

    So Fedora found again more friends in Cambodia, it might need time to get them to contributors but I have hope for it. At least they start using more and more free software and thats a good thing.

    FAD APAC 2014

    November 19th, 2014 von buergermeister

    FAD APAC 2014, the first of its kind eneded already 3 days ago and I was not enabled to write an report until yet, as I am still in Phnom Penh and have each day a workload to do, with giving workshops, talks and meetings. But now its the time, Siddesh has already pushed out for each day ( day 0, 1 and 2) a nice summary, what things we have done. But here a short summary:

    Day 1: this day, we started with me giving an overview as an outsider what I see are the problems of the APAC regions and then everybody had the opportunity to give us an inside view to his country. The rest of the day we spent with planning the budget for next year. I putted together with the help of other people an “asian event” page in our wiki, which we used to plan the budget. It was really a lot of work and the day ended really late, we stood in the DAI offices until past 7pm. So we was really late for dinner, which was definitely nice – to sad for me, to much fish and seafood.

    Day 2: We used this day to finish the work on the event planning and then moved over to more problematic topics like production of swag. Thats a little bit more complicated here as I am used to in EMEA, but there is room for improvements, so we talked about the really needed swag, which should be easily accessible for the Ambassadors in the APAC region and how to produce it with good and acceptable prices, we also had to talk about how we deal with the reimbursements for some Ambassadors as transaction fees are to high, I think Siddesh explained it very well in one of his posts, the money value is here in a lot of countries another one, take Cambodia e.g. We came up with some ideas where we can improve but mainly they have to improve there organization how to deal with the costs.

    I think this FAD was definitely progress for the APAC Ambassadors and we will see what it brings in the future. But we suceeded not only with the topics of FAD, we had also another thing. As I was here in February/March and gave some talks and awarded gifts for questions the session chair wanted to award some things to people who was Fedora Ambassadors. Why the was not visible as such ones, no Fedora shirt! There was several attempts to produce the same Fedora Ambassadors Shirts as we have in EMEA but it never progressed, but now its done. All the participants took home the shirts for the Ambassadors in their countries, with the list we have we already equipped 40% of the Ambassadors we have with an shirt. For the rest, well if we would know there size……. But look for the anouncement in the next APAC meeting.

    We really have to say a BIG thank you for this really great support from Greta Greathouse from Development Innovations Cambodia, for hosting us, we enjoyed really being your guests.

    Release Party Phnom Penh

    November 16th, 2014 von buergermeister

    On friday we had here in Phnom Penh, Release Party for Fedora 21. Yes we know 21 isnt released yet, but we started back in May organizing this event and now at least beta is available and we could show the features. Here in Cambodia just a few people are introduced to Linux and Open Source so Release Party is more to get them and inform them about it, as introducing them to the features of the newest version. But we had a great party, we had around 70 visitors and during the talks a lot of questions. We found definitely new friends in Cambodia and some also are willing to do something for Fedora, so lets see how the “Join Fedora Workshop” turns out next weekend.

    But we have also to say thx to some people here and there is in the first place Greta Greathouse from US AID – Development Innovations, who not only gave us the space for the party as also prepared us a really nice food and drinks, so that it became a really nice party after the talks.

    But thats enough and now I let the pictures speak:

    Big Week Cambodia

    November 2nd, 2014 von buergermeister

    This November will be a busy month for me, I will fly to Cambodia again and bring some Fedora energy there. Its my second visit to this country and I look forward to it. I will have an talk at Royal University of Phnom Penh. RUPP is using Fedora for teaching there students basic skills for Linux. But as always, its teached more about technical stuff as what Linux or Fedora really is, projects driven by volunteers. RUPP gives me the great opportunity to speak to all there IT students about how they can contribute to Fedora and learn even more by doing so. But I will do some other things more.

    • On 14th of November I will join the Fedora Release Party Phnom Penh and help Somvannda Kong and Nisa Ban by giving an talk at this event. Truong Anh Tuan is giving another one. So it looks there will be an interesting program with talks and fun. Yes, Fedora 21 will not be released that day, but Beta will be available at least and we can show the features of the upcoming version.
    • On 15th of November I will help in the morning Somvannda in preparing the packaging workshop, which will be done that day remotely by Robert Scheck. So we will help the attendees to install all the necessary software for the workshop so that Robert can start without being enforced to take care of that.
    • The rest of November 15th and 16th I will join the FAD APAC, where the activities for the next year will be planned.
    • 17th and 18th of November I will deliver a 3 days workshop at Smallworld Cambodia, about doing Graphics with Free Software tools.
    • 20th of November I will be back at Development Innovations for delivering an Inkscape workshop to attendees from several NGO’s
    • 21st of November I doing an Open Movie Night at the same place, talking about free software and free culture and of course showing some examples what can be done with free software.
    • 22nd and 23rd of November I will do another Join Fedora workshop, as I did in February at Open Institute Phnom Penh. I hope that during all my presentations at RUPP, Release Party and so on, get enough people interested to start working for Fedora. In the workshop we will do all the  things together that are necessary to become a Fedora contributor.

    Besides that activities I will have some meetings with friends and partners to organize some stuff in the future.
