Participation of Fedora in the Engineering Week at Universidad Interamericana de Panamá

On July 29th, the Fedora local team gave an introductory presentation for the students of Computer Systems Engineering at Universidad Interamericana de Panamá as our contribution for the Engineering Week that this university organizes.

We talked about the different projects that are being managed within Fedora and the benefits that they could get by participating. The presentation was made by Alejandro Pérez, Luis Segundo, Luiz Bazán and me. The students were very interested and some of them are beginning the process of participation in Fedora.

It is important to mention that this was the first participation of Luis Segundo, representing the Fedora local team. At the end, the university gave us a certificate indicating our participation in the event.

Fedora 20 Release Party - Panama

On Saturday January 11 we celebrate the 10th anniversary of Fedora with a great release party. This time it was held at CoworkingPTY (website, twitter), which is a space for entrepreneurship and innovation.

I showed some slides and videos with features that brings this new version of Fedora. Furthermore, Alejandro presented the tool Docker. As a Fedora Panama tradition, we ate pizza.

It was a very productive meeting. The person in charge of the place raffled three passes for a month among those who attended. Surely CoworkingPTY be a rallying point for Fedora over Panama.

I appreciate the work done by the organization and Pedro Colmenares for providing the space. See you at the next release party!
