Fedora 13 Release Party Panama

This was the first release party we organize, the plan was to meet at a Pizza place and talk about the new features of Fedora 13, the meeting started with our friend from Colon (a city around one hour away from Panama city) Armando Piedra, he is getting together a group of Fedora and Linux users there, he is also interested on becoming a Fedora Ambassador, so we probably will have a event in Colon City, Panama. The other surprise was the present of group of Fedora fans from The University of Panama, this group include two faculty members Donna Rope, Dean of Computer Science, and teacher Mirta Candanedo, on the party we talk enjoy some pizza and talk about Fedora Panama group and Fedora community.

At the end of event the group ZION from the University of Panama invite us to give a talk about Fedora 13 and Fedora community at the University of Panama, at their Faculty on Jun 18. So we hold this report to after this talk on the University.

Fedora 13 release party continued at University of Panama, they asked for a talk about Free Software, by a coincidence our friend from Red Costarricense de Software libre, Carolina Flores Hine was on Panama,  we invited her to give the free software talk, she gladly join us at the University, her talk was perfect for the students of the group. Carolina invited students to be part of the free software movement in central America. Thanks once more to Carolina.

My self give a talk about Fedora Community and fellow Fedora ambassador Abdel Martinez talk about the new release Fedora 13, students were interested as we show Gnome desktop and its features we also show KDE desktop, we brought some notebooks with Fedora 13 with Gnome and KDE they play around with them, we also give away some Fedora Stickers and buttons.

My special thanks to Elizabeth Buján and David Rodriguez from group Zion of the University of Panama.
