Mini Debian Conference Panama

Panama Mini Debian Conference

From March 19 to 21, many central American Debian users and developers got together on Panama City of knowledge, the opportunity to share knowledge was something I could not miss, so been a Fedorian, was the blue spot on this Red meting, to my surprise there was another Fedora user and Ambassador from Salvador Jose Eduardo Lopez Vasquez

The first talk was an introduction to the Debian community and how it works, it was interesting to learn the ways and rules of this community, even do he mention that they still have to learn some things from other communities like Fedora, while he point me out, because I was wearing my Ambassador Polo (the 19 was a pre flisol talk earlier on the day). Also the mention Tatica enthusiastic and energetic love for Fedora give us an impression of what Fedora and his people are teaching to other FLOSS communities.

We have a full weekend of talks like:

Package by Alejandro Rios
Compiling the kernel the Debian way by Héctor colina
Debian Free Software Guidelines by Marcelo E. Magallón
Bug reporting by Marcelo E. Magallón

It was nice to share experience on Free Software and Open Source we learn what other countries are doing and got this at the end. We need more opportunities to share and learn.
