Julita Inca Chiroque: FEDORA and GNOME at UNSAAC

Today I did a talk to introduce students of UNSAAC to the Fedora and GNOME world as it was announced by the GDG Cusco group. We started at 8:30 am and it was a free event:


I started by arranging a table with the stickers and other merchandisings to give them as a prize to the attendances in the room, and of course the balloons of the projects as follow:


As it is usual, my first question is how many people in the audience use Linux and this time only one guy use Ubuntu and the rest of people used Windows.

Then, I did a review of the whole Linux history to depict the Fedora and GNOME projects into the scene. I pointed out also the GSoC and Outreachy program for students, as well as indicating the relationship between Fedora and Red Hat and the benefits of them.
