It’s with a great thrill that I announce the birth of a partnership between Ubuntu Women-it and Girl Geek Dinners!
Thanks to Silvia Bindelli and the work she has made with the branch of GGD localized in Milan, they asked us to write some articles and how-to about Ubuntu.
In the first one (that I have written) I’ve presented the main values of our Community, the Ubuntu Promises, our working team, the ways in which is possible collaborate in translating, developing, promoting activities.
This one will be followed by many other guides written by other Ubuntu Women-it members which deal more technical matters as Installation and disk partition, media player and GIMP, Internet browsing and social networking.
Furthermore Silvia and me are working on a four hand article concerning DE in which we could explain features of GNOME (that is my DE) and KDE (hers one).
Articles are scheduled monthly and will be published on www.girlgeekdinnersitalia.com pages.
Moreover, next week, on Friday 19th we’ll attend to next GGD event in Rome, that I cared, where we’ll have three speech about Open Source, Ubuntu Women project and donne@softwarelibero list.
The happening will be promoted by Impresa Semplice, a branch of Telecom Italia and it’s open to everyone: the first 130 booking are free of charge and will be served a light dinner in a very friendly and smart place, characterised by a unique post-industrial architecture, a former textile plant now place for female cutting edge events.
It will be a nice way to communicate and we hope to involve a female public in the FLOSS world.
