Fedora Meetup in Danang April, 2013 / Report

May 5, 2013

In the recent years, FOSS has been developing rapidly in Vietnam. There are many new Open Source projects created by students and companies from day to day. In order to promote and expand the development of FOSS, “National FOSS Application and Development Conference” was organized by DSA, Duy Tan University, VFOSSA, and other co-organizers at Danang Software Park on 25th, April, 2013.

This was the first time Fedora Vietnam Community participated a big local FOSS event. We had many Fedora-related activities such as introducing Fedora project and its community, as well as joining the discussion programme with students about Fedora.

On the first day of the event, there were FOSS Communities’ exhibition stores. Fedora Vietnam Community’s exhibition store attracted a large number of students and participants. In the exhibition area, we had a range of Fedora banner displays and swags (CDs, stickers). Besides, we also had a computer displaying Fedora OS. Everybody was so curious to know what the Fedora OS was, what it looked like, and so on. In addition to Fedora Vietnam Community’s exhibition store, there were other exhibition stores such as NukeViet Community, OpenStack Vietnam Community and others.

The second programme on the fist day was the discussion between FOSS Vietnam Communities and students. As a Fedora ambassador, I had a presentation about Fedora project, its sub-projects, Fedora Vietnam Community and how we can contribute to Fedora. Participants were so excited about my talk.

The conference was officially taken place on the second day on 26th, April, 2013. There were a lot of presentations about FOSS, its communities, and policies for developing FOSS in Vietnam, etc. Near the conference centre, there were many FOSS Communities’ exhibition areas. We were so glad for introducing Fedora to everyone.

After taking place the event, I organized a meet-up with DanangLUG. We together discussed many topics about Fedora project and FOSS. Our objectives were to expand Fedora Community in Vietnam, as well as contribute to Fedora project.

The event was successful. Although one of my other Fedora activities were not done, but I was so glad for having active activities to contribute to Fedora project in Vietnam.

Event’s photos could be found here.

See you in the next Fedora events!
