DORS/CLUC 2016 - Event Report

Between 11-13 May 2016, Zacharias Mitzelos and I had been to Zagreb, Croatia for the 23rd DORS/CLUC. We were joined by Elio Qoshi, Jona Azizaj from Albania and Gergely Rakosi from Hungary.

The conference was filled with both technical and non-technical people who were somewhat less experienced with GNU/Linux. The Fedora booth, which included a demo desktop and several laptops, was quite busy at all times. There was plenty of swag to be given away. On the second day, Gergely brought some large speakers, a DJ controller and started playing sound using his Fedora machine. That certainly proved to be a major attraction.

As far as presentations are concerned, Zacharias and I gave a talk titled "Becoming Part of the Fedora Community" which meant to provide the audience with a solid overview around the Fedora Project and to present them with several contribution opportunities. Jona spoke about "Where are the women in Fedora?" and Gergely about "Games and Fun on Fedora".

We had been approached by people that were interested in the project and our technologies. This makes us really happy. My personal hope is that over the next months the Fedora community in Croatia will start growing.

Special thanks to my fellow Fedorians for hopping in and to the conference organizers for hosting us!
