OSCAL 2014 - 5 days to go!

This Friday I'll be traveling to Tirana, Albania in order to attend OSCAL (Open Source Conference Albania) as a speaker. According to their webpage (CC BY-SA), the Conference will take place in 3 May 2014 & 4 May 2014 in Tirana and will gather free libre open source technology users, developers, academics, governmental agencies and people who share the idea that software should be free and open for the local community and governments to develop and customize to its needs; that knowledge is a communal property and free and open to everyone.

I'll be giving two talks in this conference and will also be running a Fedora installation workshop. My first talk is going to be an introduction to Fedora. I'll be presenting the vision and the core values of the project; emphasis will also be given to the distribution itself, its current state and what it has to offer. Last but not least, I'll say a few words about Fedora.next, the planning for the next decade of the Fedora Project. My second talk aims in getting people from Albania to contribute to Fedora, so in that particular one I'll be presenting every single way of contributing back to Fedora and becoming part of its global community.

Of course, Fedora is going to have a big booth at the conference with demo laptops, a Fedora tablet, Arduinos and other cool stuff! I've received media+swag for the event, so we will also be giving away Fedora DVDs, stickers, buttons, etc.

Looking forward for a good foss conference!
