It seems that Liferay Spain is celebrating its 10 years birthday today! Happy Birthday!!
Let me tell you an story .. Yes, this is one of those moments I feel a little bit old.
This post was initially intended to share thoughts about PyConES 2017, but it’s been an stressful events month. So it also contains experiences from the latest conferences I’ve attended/participated/talked: LibreCon, Open Source Summit Europe and Liferay Spain Symposium.
Let’s start the reviews…
Many people don’t believe me when I say I am a shy person and I don’t like public speaking. How have I learned to overcome stage fright?
Everything started in the University (where else?) around late 90’s. I’ve studied Industrial Engineering (nothing related with computer science or programming). I was mad at using HP calculators, participating in some international newsgroups, betatesting new models, and even writing some code. That was my first participation in on-line tech communities.
My colleagues at the university asked me for a training course. That was my first public talk, in front of around 100-200 people in a classroom, using real transparencies. I still remember my legs shivering.
It’s been a long time since last post. After asking some friends about how to proceed, I decided to start blogging again here.
I plan / hope to write regular posts about open source software, open source communities, some development ideas, etc.
Como dijo un amigo mío, hay momentos históricos que da gusto vivirlos. Y el pasado día 7 de Mayo ha sido uno de ellos. Hablar de software libre y en las oficinas de Microsoft España y ¡¡de esta guisa!!:
