Python workshop on FEDORA and GNOME at UNMSM

Today, I have led a workshop that lasted 2 hours at UNMSM (Universidad Mayor de San Marcos).  Students of the Math School organized the workshop and these were the ads:

unmsm01I have presented FEDORA and GNOME, some students expressed that they have used Ubuntu and Unity before, but never FEDORA neither GNOME.  I started with history of GNU/Linux and then the Red Hat history to land into the FEDORA overview, how I got involved and ways of contributions.

unmsm2Students who answered questions correctly won a prize such as DVDs and stickers of the FEDORA and GNOME events I did. Some of them liked to have balloons of the projects 🙂

unmsm03A group photograph was taken before installation of FEDORA 25 on their machines:

dsc_0520We installed FEDORA 25 64bits on VMWARE, and all of them had achieved successfully!

unmsm05Finally, I presented GNOME to the audience and the programs Outreachy and GSoC:

    Sounds cool, but any special reason to use VMWare and not VirtualBox or qemu/Gnome boxes? Are these mainly Windows users perhaps?

      Thanks Luca for your constructive feedback! when I go to universities to do a 2 hours talk some of them has enough space on disk to install Fedora, but whenever is not the case, I usually ask to have previously prepared a virtual scenery. Next time I will mention for sure, specifically VBox or Boxes.
