Alejandro Acosta – «Introduction to the Fedora Project»
Abstract: The speech was focused in explaining to the audience what is Fedora and what do we do at Fedora project. In a following part I tried to explain briefly the situation of the project in México and why is it important to join a project led by the community. I also spoke a little about the FreeMedia program and the impact it produces in locations or individuals without access to broadband. Finally, some presents were given away on a raffle.
As stated early, I received a lot of support from many colleagues at Fedora project, the slideshow was based in a presentation by Rahul and some graphics were taken from a presentation from Chitlesh.

Day 2 concluded even more satisfactorily. Audience number increased surprisingly but happily. The only remaining thing was to wait for main event on Saturday and hope everything goes fine as so far. Again, after reviewing the activities of the day, the team headed to a(nother) local pub to shake the stress away 🙂
