FOSDEM 2017

Posted on February 5, 2017 - Bruxelles, BE

FOSDEM is a must for all open source enthusiast in Europe and close by. I think that the reasons to go to FOSDEM are different from the reasons of many other conferences, but equally valid. The comparison with DevConf is obvious, due to the temporal closeness of the two events. I think that DevConf is more about enterprise grade software (or close to be), while FOSDEM is more about experimentations and community.

DevConf 2017

Posted on January 29, 2017 - Brno, CZ

I think this is a special moment of the year, where in less than two weeks is possible to meet a huge amount of Open Source contributors in person. Obviously you will need to take few flights, but it’s definitely worth. DevConf this year was great. I’ve been able to assist to a huge amount of talks (more than 20) and the majority of which were very interesting. As always in conferences, there are themes heavily discussed and other completely absent.

LinuxDay 2016 in Bernareggio

Posted on November 1, 2016 - Villanova di Bernareggio, IT

In Italy every year, during the last weekend of October, there is the Linux Day, an “open day” for the LUGs where they create events to publicize GNU/Linux and the Free Software. As usual (for the last 7 years now), the ViGLug organized this event and this time has been in Bernareggio (MB), a city less than half hour drive north-east from Milan. This year, for the first time in the ViGLug life, we have partnered up with other two organizations BrigX (the Bernareggio LUG) and the Coderdojo Brianza.

FLOCK 2016

Posted on 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.

DevConf - day 4

Posted on 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

Posted on 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

Posted on 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.
