1. Before the event
a) The speakers
The idea was gathering all the Peruvian GNOME lovers to share our experiences with GNOME throughout all the past ten years to all our viewers around the world.
- We had two previous meetings before the event online as you can see in the pictures:
Special thanks to Maricielo Isabel Vergara Lao who designed the poster for the event.
C. Setting up the technology
2. During the event
As it was planned, the streaming started at 9am (Peruvian time). The speakers and myself were ready on time for the transmission. However, we only saw a few of people connected. This is understandable due to time difference between UK and other parts of the world. During this quarantine time, people usually sleep late, and might wake up late to prepare their brunch around 11 am… Anyway, we officially started 9:30 a.m. (Peruvian time).Our transmission lasted around 5 hours as it was planned. Thank to all the speakers that were connected the five hours in a raw. Fiorella Effio had prepared her GNOME on Ubuntu, but she did not do a presentation due to a technical issue. We had very few views online ranging from 9 to 25 people. Some of them expressed interested in joining GNOME.In the UK, the event started in the afternoon and it finished at night time. I was so glad to arrange my first online event. Special thanks to Angelou for his kind help. Greece has two hours ahead UK, but Angelou was always there for the meetings with our team.This quarantine time made me change the format of the GNOME parties I use to organize. We have celebrated the new version 3.36.1 with the usual balloons and selfies. I used cereals instead of a consistent cake.
