Three days in FUDCon Milan 2011 – Day 2

The day started at 9:30 AM with the open ceremony speech from Jared Smith, our Fedora Project Leader. Then everyone proposed their sessions/presentations in barcamp-style. All proposed sessions/presentations were voted and then arranged to five rooms, two big ones and three smaller ones.

The most impressive session in the day is the presentation “You could be the next FPL” by Jared Smith, the current FPL. Jared talked about FPL’s work, tools, his attempts to get tider with the community and organize a better one, his feelings, his thoughts, etc. A lot of questions were asked about FPL, the project and the community.

Beside that, I went around and share/learn a lot of interesting things with other speakers/attendees from the way Fedora made, Fedora packaging, D-bus message queue and the necessary changes in Spin process proposed by Christoph.

There were just about five people in that Christoph’s session. However, it’s so interesting and useful with me. I understood the current process how a spin made and knew the new changes Christoph proposed to make it better. I knew how to make my idea of a spin for disabled people to real. Just a thought of a long time idea, I would keep in touch with Christoph and others.

We had got a nice FUDPub in the evening. On the way to Troppapizza, I discussed with Robert Scheck about Ambassador Mentor work. It’s not easy but also not too difficult. One of the main things a mentor should remember that to keep new ambassadors active, mentor should wait for their requests, and at all time, help them to get their ideas and work done.

FUDPub was really nice. I ate a lot of Italian pizza, a lot :), with a big glass of Italian beer then some little more (over a litre, wow :). It was ended at over 1:00 AM so I, Christoph, Pierros and someone came back to the hotel while almost others go to other places for more beer :). It’s carzy and so fun 🙂
