Linux Day 2009 – Livorno

Saturday 24th was a great day. I had the honour to attend Linux Day 2009 organized by the GULLI, the local Linux user group, in the Metropolis Pub, Livorno. This place is owned and maintained by a Linux enthusiast who gave his availability to host this event: the location gave the right atmosphere for an event that was both interesting and fun.

The event was divided in two halves, morning and afternoon. Unfortunately I could attend only the latter one, but sure I had the possibility to meet great people and attend interesting speeches, like the open source relation with government, the creation of dynamic web sites with open source tools, and Linux on net-books.

Along the conference side, people joined the event to get in touch with Linux and ask questions/report concerns on Linux and some distributions.

I see also that some GULLI members had Fedora (or derivatives) installed in their laptop: I had the possibility to talk deeply with them and share each other the experience with this amazing distribution 🙂

Thanks to GULLI availability I had the honour to give one speech too, which basically was focused on the core features of Fedora, our community and our values.

People seemed interested and I felt like at home: they demonstrated to be a great community, from an organization to a socialisation point of view.

During the afternoon we had the opportunity to discuss about future collaborations, starting from the possibility to organize a Fedora Release Event (but it’s still an on-going issue), to the creation of a more strict relation between us. Both the ideas sounded great and, sure, I saw this as a great chance to improve our experience and share with them our passion and tools.

When available, I’ll post some photos of the event. Meanwhile I hope to have described, even briefly, what happened and what were the results of this amazing experience.
