FLOSS community building

The Free Software community in Nicaragua (also known as GUL-NIC) brings together the user communities of the GNU / Linux operating system in the country and others related to open source and free culture.

Each community develops its own events and activities, such as launching parties, translation sprints or informal meetings with the purpose of give IT support or getting to know each other. The general events of the Linux communities are carried out under the Linux Tour brand, which to date accounts for more than 400 nationally and internationally, since 2007.

Some of these communities also organize large international events in our country, with the aim of strengthening ties between the local and the global communities. Examples of this last are the Debian Developers Conference (DebConf), the DrupalCamp, the WordCamp, the Software Freedom Day (SFD), the Latin American Free Software Installation Festival (FLISoL), the Users and Developers Conference of Fedora in Latin America (Fudcon Latam) or the Central American Free Software Meeting (ECSL).

With a research on social movements around Internet as a first contact, I involved in the organization in 2008, supporting communication tasks, events coordination, and establishing a free culture speech on public media. I helped organize and coordinate important events such as the Software Freedom Day, various Installfests.
