In the last two months I’ve been less active regarding free software as life keep me busy with other stuff. Nerver the less I’ve been able to help with orginizing August Penguin – the annual Israeli free software conference (happening the 7th time in a row).
The conference takes half a day and occurs on the first Friday of August. This year we’re back to a two track conference with a tehcnical and non-technical tracks. Each track has 5 lectures, 30 min. each.
Non technical track:
- “Open source by Microsoft” – Microsoft Israel
- W3C in Israel – Ori Idan
- Building a wordpress community – Blogli staff
- Openoffice.org, the community side + Update on free software in education – Lior Kaplan & Nadav Kavalerchik
- Open Moko – Doron Ofek
- Bidi in free software – Shoshana Forbes
- Django – Meir Kriheli
- Blender – Shlomi Israel
- Hocr – Kobi Zamir
- Drupal – Lior Kesos
As I found out more and more open source people from around the world in Israel, I thought it will be a good idea to write about the conference and invite them. Please be aware that the lectures are in Hebrew. But you can also come to meet the community and talk with the people or take part in our GPG signing party. More info (in Hebrew) at http://august.penguin.org.il and in Facebook’s event info.
