First Symposium of Technological Advances

We keep going, today Luis and I (tatica1)聽 had the First Symposium of Technological Advances at the University of San Pedro Sula where we shared a good time with the students of the Instituto T茅cnico de San Pedro Sula.

We exposed some topics to explain them about Linux, Free Software, Richard Stallman and his GNU project, Linus Torvalds and Linux, different distributions on Linux and and its advantages, Free Software in public administrations and Ubuntu.

The students were quite interested and asked questions to win an Ubuntu CD 馃榾 like if Ubuntu recognizes different types of hardware or drivers must be installed separately, the difference between Ubuntu and Kubuntu, what does Ubuntu mean, if it is compatible with other operating systems, if they could run games and what kind, how can be installed Repositories.

Ubuntu Honduras聽 Team appreciate the invitation of the University and thank the participation of the students.

Excellent Ubuntu activity @UNAH-VS

As Honduran team is definitely satisfactory to have events like the one last night. Alex and I (tatica1) visited a local university UNAH-VS in San Pedro Sula (Honduras) where we met with approximately 100 computer science students that were very interested in the subject that we discussed.


We gave a brief introduction about our
meeting objectives and then Alex presented about Free Software and the importance of Ubuntu on it. At the end we invited students to join the team, explained how it works and told them we needed more active people to join us and to help promote Ubuntu in Honduras as the best operating system.



We shared some Ubuntu CDs with them and invited them through flyers to join us next Friday April 23th at the FLISOL Latin American Free Software Installation Festival.

It was very gratifying that several students showed interest giving us their e-mail asking us to send them the presentation we made.

We give special thanks to Wendy Ramos and Engineer Ruben Fernandez for inviting us and we hope we can help them in a future implementing Free Software in UNAH-VS.
