OSCAL 2015

OSCAL (Open Source Conference Albania) is the first annual conference in Albania organized to promote software freedom, open source software, free culture and open knowledge. The Conference will take place at 9 May 2015 & 10 May 2015 in Tirana and will gather free libre open source technology users, developers, academics, governmental agencies and people who share the idea that software should be free and open for the local community and governments to develop and customize to its needs; that knowledge is a communal property and free and open to everyone. The mission is to educate the Albanian youth, and not only, on Free and Open Source Software, its ideology and the great community behind it.

Fedora is once again going to be a big part of this conference, as we'll deliever several talks and workshops. Of couse we're going to have a huge booth as well. This event is a great chance of spreading the word about Fedora in Albania and would be important to continue our efforts in establishing a local active Fedora community there.

When and Where

9-10 May 2015, Tirana, Albania

Suggested Talks and WorkShops

Feel free to add yours!

Note: The target audience, the Albanian FLOSS community that is, is currently making its first steps. It's very important that we present some basic stuff about Fedora as some people are not expected to be fully aware of it; so, we're going to have both technical and non-technical stuff going on.
