Another one rides the bus Errrr my colleagues and I have managed to organize and host another virtual day of free and open source technologies. We had 4 (almost 5) talks and lots of discussion on our IRC channel.
Talks that we had were:
1. How to run your blog on Raspberry Pi and ADSL by Ivan Voras
2. GIMP - software which could serve better for more open "photo" journalism by Darko Tomaš
3. Introducing pupils with modern art - Moodle vs traditional classroom by Julija Tomasović
4. Meet the Croatian Linux Users' Association by Milan Rajačić and myself
My biggest help with organization and hosting was Tomislav Damjanović! It took us a month for everything and to gather speakers but it was worth it and we are happy because of that.
You can see talks on the video below. For non Croatian speakers, I am sorry, you can watch if you are ready for a linguistic adventure :) ....
As I already wrote for first virtual day of free and open source technologies blog post, this is manly for Croatian audience with goal to open ourselves more to public. I will add one additional goal here: enlarge and empower free and open source community in Croatia. Every community whether local or international needs proactive members that will pull things forward and only and exclusively because of such members FLOSS world can survive. More proactive members means: more activities, more events, more projects and not only for newcomers but for public in general i.e. for folks who are not interested into volunteering but just into learning something and hangout.
That would be all for 2nd Virtual day of free and open source technologies and I leave you with another interesting talk by Jim Zemlin who will explain FLOSS world in a common and simple language.
