Yesterday I attended the second day of Fosscomm 2015 on the Technological Institution of Athens. First of all I would like to point out that the convention was excellently organised, my previous experiences on various technological – and non – conventional was traumatic. The campus of the Institution is beautiful and the convention’s workshops and classes was scattered mostly on the faculty of Technological Applications building.
The Open Business course, which evolved to an interactive lab to create a viable business model based on open source thinking and technologies.
Unfortunately I didn’t have a lot of time, so the last course I watched was a Quadcopter design and introductory course.
The beauty of Open Source are it’s people, I had time to talk to some very interesting persons about OpenSuse, Fedora and Debian – I also met the Mate maintainer of Debian! – plus I got familiar with GreekLUG and Ellak.
All in all it was a great experience, next year though I hope we will be more organised and attend both days and more courses!
P.S : The best thing about conventions are the goodies!! Stickers, DVDs, bags and a cup was my loot from Fosscomm 2015!
