Thanks to the organisers that invited us to do a workshop of GNU/Linux commands
It has started around 9:00 o’clock and we were surprised that the attendees were earlier than 9 to get a sit in the workshop. I did a review of the History of GNU/Linux and then introduction to Fedora and GNOME applications. I also noticed that people that have been in previously events such as Install Fest were there to learn more about the projects and of course, commands on terminal ( as was published in the Flisol ad).
I must thanks to the volunteers that helped with the attendees to complete the tasks in terminal. Newbies sometimes fail in the basic principles such as indentation, use of VIM, spaces, case sensitive and if you miss one step, it can let to files.swap among other issues. Students from different universities where GNU/Linux is not so popular were eager to learn and the three hours of the workshop were not enough. There were very talent people that easily got the commands and respond the questions and basic exercises .
I understan that each one has her or his pace, so I invited the audience to complete the Backtrackacademy course of Introduction to GNU/Linux using Fedora+ GNOME for free. As it is usual, I gave gifts to all the participants when they respond correctly my questions.
This is the final photo of the group after the workshop at Flisol Lima Norte 2017!
I also had the chance to wave Fabio Duran from GNOME Chile who did an online talk ❤
Even his face it is not clear at all in the picture, he is always supporting the Peruvian work!
At the end, we have shared a mini buffet thanks to the organisers again for this great experience at UPN and we hope that the Linux UPN community will grow up!
Nuritzi, the President of the GNOME board was also online to have nice greetings to Peru
and… some more pictures in the bellow mini gallery… enjoy it!
