Sirko (and everyone),
I've been reading your multi-part series on how you're doing the F26
release party in Phnom Penh.
I think this is a fantastic idea. I like that you are working directly
with lots of future members of the IT working groups in Cambodia and
likely future contributors. I really appreciate how using Fedora as a
base has let you talk about all kinds of technology and firmly introduce
it. Students are a hard audience, and it seems like you've found a
great low-resource high energy way to engage them. This is awesome.
Keep your posts coming.
I think these kind of release parties create an opportunity for existing
contributors and ambassadors to really bond with potential community
members. Many of our activities don't seem to have obvious followup. I
would be surprised if there isn't clear followup by Sirko here as he
will obviously have invested a lot of time and made friends (by showing
off freedom, features and first). What other ideas could we do like
this in your region?
If you haven't read it, read it now:
Wow, this is super exciting to read and hear about! It sounds like a
high impact area and I love how it's getting students involved not just
as attendees but as active participants (maybe something we can try to
do in other areas of the world too, with a friendly NGO / non-profit).
This definitely has given me a lot to think about for both strategical
and motivational ideas of promoting Fedora – thanks Brian for sharing
and awesome work Sirko. :)
