Event at Colon City.

Events in Panama, are focus on Panama city, time limit us to normally visit other cities and resources limit us to organize on other cities. This time a team of students from UTP Colon organize their own event call "TICs el poder en tus manos"  and invite us to be part of event.

Colon city is an hour drive from Panama and we did not  know people to organize events there our self, so we welcome the invitation as speaker for this event. So three of us visit Colon for this talks.

We meet the group of students who organize the event, for us it was a free software event so we needed to show all presentations on free software computer, therefore we ask if we could use one of ours they agree but ask us to show the videos they have prepare,to our surprise they have prepare a short video of every one of us with our profile, pictures and information about our talk. Something that show the amount of dedication and time to prepare the event they spend.

Attendance enjoy our talks and ask questions about them, we interest on the subjects and a warm welcome.

More when they ask us if we could go back and do work shops and more talks about free software, Wikipedia and Fedora, a few of the attendance has come to our events on Panama city so they ask if could do the Fedora School we did last year on a bugsquashing team event we did after Fudcon Panama.

After the event people gather at the Fedora booth for stickers and Fedora media, many users and some new Fedora users.

The more important note of this event was that is was organize by seniors students for the first and second semester students.  After the event we enjoy dinner with all attendance.
