SMAU

October 30, 2016 - Milano, IT

From the 25th to the 27th of this month I’ve been at the SMAU in Milan (Italy). The SMAU (Salone Macchine e Attrezzature per l’Ufficio, that would be Exposition of Machinery and Equipment for the Office) is an historical fair started in 1964 and that has had many changes over the years, for instance some years it has been opened to the general public, other times it was only for business visitors.

FLOCK 2016

August 7, 2016 - Kraków, PL

This year, I have been able to go to Flock :). Flock location this year was Krakov (Poland). Since my flight arrival time was very close to Mailga’s one, I waited him at the airport and then we went together to the Flock location. This has proven to be a good idea, since we had the time to speak about some important topics around the Italian Community. We then arrived to the Flock location, were we discovered a problem with the rooms booking, but that got resolved in a quick way by Bexelbie.

Codemotion

May 15, 2016 - Amsterdam, NL

In the last few days I’ve been at the CodeMotion Amsterdam 2016. This was my first CodeMotion and I have to say that I’m very impressed. The organization was awesome, the talks very high level and the location, well, more than awesome - as you can see in the picture. In those couple of days I had the opportunity to speak with many people, the majority of which are developers, and I learned a lot on the developer point of view of DevOps and containers.

DevConf - day 4

February 8, 2016 - Brno, CZ

My last day at Brno has come, and I took the bus to Wien Airport, where I later got a plane to Milan. Overall, this was a very nice experience. I’ve met a lot of very interesting people and a lot of people I already knew but only by their IRC and FAS name. It’s always nice to be able to give faces to the names you always read. I really look forward for the next Fedora Event that probably it will be Flock 2016 for me.

DevConf - day 3

February 7, 2016 - Brno, CZ

Today there were a lot of Fedora talks and sadly I was not able to see them all since there were two Fedora tracks. The most interesting talk I’ve assisted today was probably the Denise Dumas and Matthew Miller one about Fedora. Being the last day of the conference, it ended earlier so we (EMEA Ambassadors) were able to gather and meet to work a little bit on the 2017 budget.

DevConf - day 2

February 6, 2016 - Brno, CZ

Today I spent the morning looking at very interesting sessions mainly about containers. Probably the most interesting talk of the day has been the one by Josh Bressers about security. In the afternoon I’ve had a very pleasant meeting with the Fedora Internationalization team to see where the various community are and what we can do to improve the current situation. Later I went to the party, but having misinterpreted the situation, I walked with Patrick and Ralph to their meeting place before going to the right location.

DevConf - day 1

February 5, 2016 - Brno, CZ

This morning things started in the right way. My day started with Tim Burke’s talk and it was very interesting. After that talk, I attended the Adam Miller talk about immutable infrastructures and Daniel Walsh talk about Docker vs Systemd and I enjoyed them all :). Later on I had a very nice hallway talk with Remy DeCausemaker about local communities and translations, followed by an actual meeting about globalization in Fedora.

DevConf - day 0

February 4, 2016 - Brno, CZ

Few days past from FOSDEM and I’m at yet another conference! Today I flew to Wien and then took a train to Brno. After the hotel check-in I went to the conference location and I had a nice time with the Red Hat people while we were preparing the location for the event. The majority of the work was already done when I arrived, but few things were still missing (mainly indications to make users life easier like arrows pointing to the rooms, schedules, etc) so I got the opportunity to help :).

FOSDEM - day 3

February 1, 2016 - Bruxelles, BE

Today is my last day in Brussels and since my flight back is pretty late in the afternoon I took the occasion to visit a little bit Brussels. Fun fact is that after 4 days in Brussels for a FLOSS conference, I’ll spend my evening at my local Linux User Group!

FOSDEM - day 2

January 31, 2016 - Bruxelles, BE

This morning I’ve assisted to one of the most fun and interesting talk I’ve have ever seen. I’m talking about the talk of Richard M Stallman on licensing and patents. I’ve really liked how the talk has been conducted by the speakers and I think the contents were great (you can probably find it available online and if I’ll find a link, I’ll post it). After Stallman’s talk, I went to listen Langdon White talk Re-thinking Linux Distributions.
