Thanks to GNOME I am going to be able to visit Indonesia in a couple of weeks to give a lighting talk. I wanted this for years; but it is still kind of hard to believe this is the real.
I remember the first time I saw the grupal photo of GNOME Asia in 2010. It was so inspirational for me! I started to research events related to GNOME around the world and I was visualizing similar GNOME events in Peru.
After 5 years of trying to do the same in Lima, I feel that I did not make it. There are issues like team organization, promotion techniques for encouraging people to do this as a volunteer, etc.
I have many expectations for this trip, like facing the organization of the GNOME Asia team, what GNOME Asia user wants, if they are interested in programming (as it happens in Peru) or participating in Google Summer of Code or any other international program…
So, learning about organization, interests, getting motivation for finally do GNOME technical documentation are some of my reasons for going to the GNOME Asia 2015 🙂
