Introduction to Firefox OS @ fossaegean - Event Report

Back here again with another report for our Mozilla-related activities so far which took place in Samos island, Greece. As I'm currently attending university there I could simply not miss the chance to spread the word about free software and promote our mission as well.

I'm now part of the Free & Open Source Society of the University of the Aegean (aka fossaegean), a local group open to university students who are using and promoting free software. Within that group we've organised a couple events so far and we're aiming to host an event every week (each Saturday to be precise). Two of those events in the last two months were Mozilla-related:

Kudos to Antonis Tzorvas who helped me run the events. Antonis is a technical IT guy, a fellow student and a friend who is very passionate about free software and willing to contribute to Mozilla as well. Together we've brought fossaegean back to life again and we're running all those interesting sessions. Current plans for future Mozilla events are:

The sure thing is that we've still a lot of stuff to do but I think we've made a good start. Students often stop me when they spot me going somewhere on foot (know that the town of Karlovasi in Samos, where our Department of the University of the Aegean is located, is very small in size and in population with all people knowing each other) and they keep asking me a lot of questions about Mozilla and how they could possibly get involved; of course I'm extremely happy about that! :D This encourages me to continue what I've been doing all the time. I'll get back to you again once we've done more stuff in the island, stay tuned. :)
