Nha Trang ICT 2015

I came to Nha Trang this year to bring Fedora back there after the successful event last year. This year, the event was held in another university in Nha Trang, TCU with more participants from other universities in Nha Trang and nearby cities.

There was a academy/science conference in the morning with some talks from open source enterprises who sponsor the whole event. The afternoon was reserved for FOSS communities and I had a session to introduce about the Fedora project to all students and lectures. There were about 200 attendees join into a big classroom.

During the session, I talked to them about the benefit of contributing to FOSS and Fedora. I told participants what the employers need in general when they recruit new employees, especially young students. Basically, they need candidates to have critical thinking, group working, English speaking and technical skills. Students can study those skills during participating in a FOSS project like Fedora.

I also had got a table to put some Feodra 23 DVD and small pins there. People were really interested in those gifts and grabbed them all in less than half an hour. People asked a lot of questions about Fedora and FOSS and I tried my best to answer most of them.

The last session in the afternoon was for Q&A. I was appointed to answer most community-related questions.

Hope students and lectures in the university and nearby would be more interested in Fedora and FOSS after this event.
