I organize, therefore I am! – GNOME PERU FEST 2015

The GNOME PERU FEST 2015 event took place last Friday 13th, March in Centro Cultural PetroPerú. Special thanks GNOME Foundation for sponsoring us all again, as well Fedora, Infopucp, La Bouquette, Nexsys,  PetroPerú and IBM.

GNOMEPERUThe event was announced in Eventbrite, local news La República, IBM Peru twitter,  IBM Facebook, GNOME wiki, Fedora wiki and this Website (with a language I do not know ).

marinagsocWe started with the welcome words by our manager Patricia Di Negro, then Federico Mena, explained us what GNOME is, Laura Castrotalked about the GNOME community, OPW and GSoC programs with Marina, Valentín Barros (student – Spot project), Marcos Chavarría (student – GNOMECAT project), Fabián Orccón (student – Pitivi project) and

 Patricia Santana Cruz (student – Cheese project), who defined these talks and what people being involved with GSoC and GNOME have: “GNOME vocation“. We expect to have some applications from Peru to these programs, we encourage people to read these GSoC – GNOME sites: 1,2,3,4, 5.

Fedora was present also with Alejandro Perez and Jonathan Campos (Assambadors of Fedora LATAM), I had already received a proposal from peruvian enterpreneus guy to give a workshop of Fedora in Lima. We still have more Fedora DVD to install and stickers to spread the Fedora – GNOME word.

Alex Aragón did during his talk a demostration of the use of Blender, he used the GNOME logo and a chain to make them move. After that, everyone took a box lunch and we share them after taking our grupal photo. You can see more photos of the event by clicking here

GNOME PERU FEST 2015“GNU/Linux in enterprises” afternoon followed: * IBM Perú presented SAP on Linux, by Carol Romani, Christian Chancafe. * Nexsys Perú presented Power on Linux, by Wilder Mendoza. * Watson IBM, presented academic achievement, by Sergio Sotelo. * Neosecure presented Linux security in bussiness, by Juan Pablo Quiñe. * PetroPerú presented The success of Linux in business , by Xavier Sánchez. We have a few tweets with the #GNOMEPERUFEST2015 hashtag  because we do not share the WiFi password to anybody (this is a dilema for me because you can get more attention from them, but they can not publish what in going on during the event). A video camera was on durign the whole day, and I hope soon to get an extract of it! 🙂 GNOMEcake
