Spreading GNOME project in Lima, Peru

Last week in Peru, we had an event called Linux Week 2012. I want to thank Mozilla Peru, they gave as four Mozilla t-shirt 10 years, Mozilla posters 10 years, many stickers and souvenirs like sport accessories for our attendances. INFOPUCP was also a kind sponsor, they gave us 40 Linux books for the event. We gave those gifts to students that response questions of the “trivias”, which are questions related to many projects of Free Software and Open Source like the official date of the first Linux kernel and launch releases of many projects, among others. We did that during breaks and coffee break.

The public enjoy this, they have fun as the same time they learned more about Linux history, projects features and different parameters for commands in terminal.

I also want to thank the participation of GNOME Women, Marina and Tamara, they were part of our international stuff. It was published in the news of my university Punto Edu online. Tamara talk was about the situation of Free Software in Macedonia and Marina talked about the GNOME programs, OPW and GSoC 2012. It was recording and published. You can see the video in youtube or you can visit Videos PUCP.

At the end, I did some questions to the students and I realized that they do not know so much about GNOME. So, this weekend I am going to give a talk about GNOME in other university, the event is called “Open Day”. I am going to start with a little introduction, this time Boo is going to help me to do that,  and then I am going to show all the benefits GNOME 3.4 offers to our users.  I installed Fedora17 alpha and OpenSUSE 12.1 in my laptop for this purpose.
