Mozilla Reps welcome packs arrived!

The usual suspect, a brown van arrived once again in my doorstep. This time the package was kinda lightweight. But I should not judge by the weight.

I quickly opened the white wrapping and I had a mysterious grey bag in front of me.

Looking a bit closer, on the tag, my heart jumped :)Mozilla ReMo PackXLarge

Finally, it was party time! I cannot remember the moments between the grey bag and having all those super-uber-cool goodies laying on my desk :)

The bag includes:

  • 10x – Firefox standard-issue buttons
  • 2x – Firefox old-time-classics lanyards
  • 2x – Mozilla Reps the-little-awesome buttons (white)

When we kickstarted Mozilla Reps back in June, we wanted to make sure that every single Mozilla Rep will be equipped with the finest set of swag to be identified and spread the love. Now we are able to provide it!

Rep mentors will be contacting their mentorees for delivery of those cant-wait-to-have packs :)

FUDCon EMEA 2010 – Day 1

Long day today! (kinda two days…) Still no sleep after 40 hours, but full of excitement after a first day in FUDCon EMEA Zurich 2010!

We managed to get to the hotel at 7am and shook some hand with the rest of the team that was already there! (Jared Smith, Mo, Robert, Spot and others.)

After a quick ride downtown we ended up on the FrosCamp / FUDCon venue ETH Zurich. Organizing team did an excellent job with the place and we had the chance to meet some new and old faces from the foss world in Europe. (Debian boys, OpenStreetMap, LGMs, etc)

Our time was on and Jared Smith our new beloved Fedora Project Leader gave the mark and welcomed us on this year FUDCon EMEA! The first talk was about Fedora Packaging! At last I had the chance to hear Tom “spot” Callaway giving his best on getting us to build our very first packages :) And we made it! We actually had clean and working .spec and rpms in just an hour during this excellent workshop! Dear packages here I come…. 😉

After a small break to help on the booth (although Zoltan and Robert did an excellent job) we ended up on the “Campus Ambassadors” workshop by Biertie. I think we had a very constructive hour trying to justify the existence of the project and set some goals that can be actually feasible to achieve. Biertie is going to give his best to make sure that we have a alive and kicking Campus Ambassadors Subproject.

Moving from one workshop to another I had the pleasure/honour to meet again my best pal Nicu with his friend Andrian who cannot stop mocking me and I am determined to pay it back! (No I was not beaten by Ubuntu girls!)

After an truly inspiring and well structured talk by Mo about GIMP and Inkscape (which kept me thinking about my talk on Design Suite and how much it will suck :P) we got ourselves on the Party “Wired Dreams” ETH was throwing for as. 3 hours, 3 Free free beers and 3 times beaten in table soccer I decided to leave to get some rest on the hotel (which by the way is fabulous! thanks cmpahar for booking!)

Tomorrow , is going to be more Fedora magic and more Community excitement! Stay tuned for rushed updates (and some nasty pics of a long time fedora contributor… :) )

ps. no photos as you can see so far, but you can expect some on the end as an album at Picasa. luck of bandwidth makes my blogging tough task 😉

Fedora 13 Athens Release Party – Review

Fedora’s new release was once again set to be celebrated in Greece :)

This time though we had some great idea! Because the community is growing in Athens and Thessaloniki we decided to host a double release party! Also we would be connected through video to greet ourselves :)

The party started at the same time on Athens and Thessaloniki and we had a nice chance to get to know new people and spread the word of Fedora as we always do!

Fun is always part of our events and we sure did have some great time with old and new friends. I presented some new features of Fedora 13 and the One Page Release Notes proved to be very handy!

The “Fedora Cake” that we had thanks to Thalia was wonderful! It vanished in no time!

We would really like to explore more the possibility of multiple parallel release parties interconnected through the internet :) That would be some great fun!

See ya on the next release party :)

Glezos got PWNED



Dimitris got pwned in his homebase! I got access and took the chance to leave a message! Apparently he has to be trained more in order to become a real ninja!

Thanks to Thalia for her help :)

These are the reactions (before Beredimas told Dimitris it was me) :

Till next time my dear friend….till next time :)
