Today was the first day of FUDCon Panamá. After several months of planning the event finally started and I’m glad to see how things are going. The first interesting thing is that it was the first time we did a schedule using a barcamp style. Folks who attended to FUDCon Tempe helped to set this up and built a schedule. I did my best to create a good schedule, but I know it is impossible to please everyone. There are some things that we still need to fix, but it is in a good shape overall. The villas, our home for the next few days, is a lovely place and looks like a place where I lived in my childhood in Brazil.
The conference started with a talk from the Fedora Project Leader, Jared Smith. He did an overview about the Fedora Project, our core values, and how to spread the work about FUDCon. We took advantage of the availability of a big auditorium at the first day of the conference to host the most wanted talks in it. The other talks of the day were: Python For Sysadmins from Toshio; Network in Fedora from Gomix; Educational Robotics with Free Software And Hardware from Valentín, How People Make Money From Free Software from Edwin y Technical Documentation, another one from Jared. There was also a talk about Virtualization with KVM, from Dell, one of the event sponsors.
Panamanians kicked the event off really well and we will have more fun in the next days. Stay tuned on Fedora Planet and on Twitter and Identica following the #FUDCon hashtag.
Saludos desde Panamá!
