Last week I organized a FAD and a MAD (Fedora Activity Day and Mozilla Activity Day) it took part at the Prishtina Hackerspace. The event was about community building and finding the best path for new contributors to join open source communities. To make the event even more better we had the opportunity to join forces together with Open Labs Albania.
The first day was dedicated to Fedora. I did an introduction to Fedora and the different channel there are to contribute. Jona gave an awesome speech about women in Fedora, Elio with his creativity showed how easy it is to use inkscape and create badges for Fedora, and Boris showed us how to install Pidora on a Raspberry PI.
The second day continued with Mozilla, presenting the ways one can contribute, including sites like whatcanidoformozilla and Mozilla Reps. Boris led a workshop regarding translation of Mozilla Thimble. During the end of the day we did some showcase of Thimble and demonstrated Mozilla VR (thankfully Boris had a cardboard ). People seemed to be amazed with VR, we started a group on discussion were Web can have its part in VR.
The events had different topic and it was very diverse, from people contributors to design and more technical paths were presented to the audience. More specific events will come in coming months. A big thank you Jona, Elio, and Boris
