Fedora Day Buenos Aires 2014

A month ago (or so) we decided to start organizing an event focused on Fedora here in Buenos Aires. The objectives for the event were:

  • Get new contributors for the local Fedora community
  • Grow the interest and show more presence of Fedora on the local community
  • Bring all the ambassadors from Argentina together to talk about FUDCon 2015
  • Fedora 21 Release Party

The organization was good, we thought of all the required tasks and we assigned owners for each one. Eduardo Echeverria (echevemaster) helped a lot by setting up the event’s websiteLeo, Rino, Mariela (our new ambassador) and myself divided the remaining tasks.

We met Leo and Fabio who came from Brasil on Wednesday night for an organizational dinner. We had a great time at “La Casa Del Queso”, talking and sharing ideas about the Fedora Day and the bid we are going to present for FUDCon 2015.

On Saturday, the day of the event, we went to the UTN early in the morning to set everything up.We met with Matias Maceira and Valentin Basel who came from Cordoba, Julio Sanchez who came from Tierra del Fuego and Adrian Soliard who came from Entre Rios.

I also have to mention that Oscar Perez from the UTN has been very kind and helpful since  the days prior to the event. He did all the paper work on the university to request the rooms and the equipment that we needed. The day of the event he also showed a very professional aptitude, I like that we can count with someone as him to organize events there.

The event was great, we did a short introduction about how to contribute and then I gave a talk for new ambassadors while Fabio was giving a talk about Fedora QA and Rino another one about packaging.

Then we had a short interval for lunch on the UTN buffet and then we continue with the talks that were scheduled.

At the end of the day we picked  up a winner of a blue Fedora that I brought.  The winner very happy with her new Fedora.

At night we went to o a local pub to celebrate the success of the day.

Some facts about this event:

  • Jonatan Madera and Ivan Weinberg were named ambassadors since they helped a lot with the activities on the day and organization previous to the event.
  • We got 3 new candidates to join the ambassadors team that will be mentored by me and 2 new candidates to join the packaging team.

I also want to thank Fabio and Leo who came from Brasil and all the guys who came from all different Argentinian provinces.
