This is a very special post, I explain why.
I have agreed to attend and give a presentation at the Libre Graphics Meeting 2012 in Vienna (Austria). For those who do not know it, is the largest annual event where developers meet worldwide.
It is where the greatest advances are devised with opensource technology. then we can all enjoy on our computers for free.
My presentation will focus on digital painting and foss. It will be the week of 2-5 May. It will help users to understand the needs of illustrators and how we can satisfy them with free applications, as well as explaining the strengths and those who are less so. The areas of improvement for the future.
I have prepared a page if you want to help a little with the expense of such an event characteristics. (lodging, meals, travel)
I also appreciate the social media spread as much as possible so we can reach more people.
Sure it will be an exciting and instructive time for all. Imagine what can happen in a week when people interact in real time. Google knows this, and so every year celebrates the GSOC. So if you like free software is a good way to support it.
I'll report on how it goes,and thank you very much for your support! if you have any questions you can comment in this thread or by mail.[link]
