Festival Abierto

Festival Abierto is local event that meet over 10K people, and meet ONG around Education, Culture and Science.  This year we were invited to show free software and show our community work.

It allow ONG to meet and talk about project with the same goals so they can work together, at the same time there is music from local and international artist.

We have a stand with all the stuff we could prepare for this event. We show Raspberry PI, OLPC, Icaro Fedora and some other community projects.

Members of the community talk to people about free software what we do and what are our goals as group. Many show interest, and found some Linux and Free Software Users who did not know about us and are interested on becoming part of the project.

Fedora Panama and Floss-pa at Feria yo reciclo

Floss-pa and Fedora was invited to be part of "Feria yo reciclo", which is  a recycling fare organize by Roba Morena, it was nice opportunity to share about  Fedora and free software to group of free culture people, this time the fare mix up with a rock concert with local artist "Saving the Planet" so lots of people visit our spot in the fare.

We share with new friends, some of them already Fedora users, that did not know about the community and with other who learn about free software. We share stickers and buttons with them.

It was also a family day for me so I have the opportunity to share it with family and friends.

Thanks to all folks on the community that volunteer to be there and Roba Morena for inviting us.
