I’m going to move to Holland!!
I haven’t written yet about this news, but now I’m finally doing it! I’m a little bit superstitious I have waited until official confirmation because this is a thing I really care of.
I’m going to move to Holland, in particular to The Hague, to work in a big and innovative project.
I’m so excited and motivated about it: the project will be development using Agile techniques (wo wo wo .-)) and this is a huge opportunity to grow, to meet skilled people and, last but not least, to leave Italy (despite this, I’m leaving part of my heart and my friends there).
By the way, I’ll start to work in this new project on June 15th. Right now I need two things: a flat and a bike
About apartment I have some requests for you, my readers (if you are from Holland): If you live in The Hague and nearby (Delft, Voorburg, Pijnager, etc.) and you have suggestion for renting apartment, just a medium flat with at least two bedrooms (for two people) don’t hesitate to contact me by mail, comments, and so on ;-).
I have already took a look on some Dutch websites like funda.nl, www.pararius.nl, www.perfecthousing.com, but a direct contact would be better.
I’m happy and I want to begin as soon as possible. That all
Stay tuned, I’m going to break the last period silence (facebook is changing our habits, but I’ll fight against it) with some new articles, and news.
MemoByte 2009 is an event organized by ARCO no profit organization and is focuses on both Computer and Electronic technologies. Basically is divided into two areas: an area like a market of old and new electronic devices (Radio, old computers, transistors, and so on) and an area dedicated to Computer groups and organizations like LUGMan (Mantova’s LUG), Fedoraproject, LUG Parma, and so on.
I brought with me two good ambassadors: Gianluca Varisco and Alexjan Carraturo. Really good choice! We had to travel a lot of kilometres from Milan to Verona and then down to Mantova but thanks to them, the travel was funniest and interesting (particularly funny when Gianluca and Alex discussed about ADSL vs Optical fiber).
The worthy part was our ability and opportunity to plan a lot of things about Fedora-it and fedora ambassador groups.
We brought some Fedora 10 CDs, some Fedora FEL ISOs and a lot of stickers left from FOSDEM (Thanks to Gerold who gave me) and two OLPC (which is always a star).
We met a lot of people that needs information about Linux, Fedora and Opensource software. And we come back with the opportunity of organize a big and (maybe) international event in January 2010 (stay tuned).
Mantova is a good place for fedora to grown, organizators asked me about Linux Day (in october) and the possibility to have gadgets: they are fantastic supporters and we must to invest in that area as much as we can.
June is going to be a bit heavy. All weekends are taken:
- 6th: Memobyte (Mantova): Event related on electronic and embedded systems, with a lot of companies involved in. I’ll be there to support Fedora FEL with some light speeches (during all the day) and a booth with gadgets, USB station. Thanks to Gianluca, Alexjan and Stefano who agreed to come with me.
- 13th: ConfSL & LUGConf (Bologna): I’ll be in Bologna as two role: as President of LOLUG (no profit organization about Linux) and as Fedora Ambassador. This conference is really important to give a structure and exchange experiences in local user groups. Of course I’ll be there as Fedora ambassador because ConfSL has a lot of ubuntu/debian supporter, so I have to bring some fresh air
- 19th-21th: Byte-code MeetUp (Bormio): The third annual Byte-Code MeetUp, a combination of sessions, talks, workshops, and hackfests in which contributors work on specific initiatives. This year will be some international VIPs
- 26th-28th: Fedora EMEA FUDCon (Berlin): Fedora user and developer conferences will include two days of hackfests and possibly some presentations, followed by a day of BarCamp.
