FLISOL all over

FLISOL event is happening in late April but we are already at full speed recruting, looking for sponsors and promoters and setting up an even better event from last year. 2011 was great for the FLISOL movement in Mexico, and this year I hope it gets even better.

First of, we did a decent job documenting the event, making database of visitors and getting contacts from newspapers and shows. We also got some visibility online and also some recognition, so is a good time to build on a next level of recognition closer to the mainstream.

This year we have a stronger relationship with a few more companies and we are growing. We hope to have even more partners than last year. And I hope we are able to acomplish more on less time. We also have more time with some universities from the locality and potentially a better fit team to create events.

So we are looking for this edition to be bigger, greater and more to the point of what people really are looking for. We are compiling a CD full of Videos that users can take home and maybe even a software packages that explain the creation and use of open source software.

However this is not enough, we are looking for next year also as an opportunity to kick start new developments with budgets and more strong relationship with the different locations across the country. We want to launch an initiative to get federal funds for innovation and put it into next year event across the country, giving it more visibility and a relationship with innovation that can start getting some legs.

I hope we can do this with the help of some of the open source activist that I know through the years. Happy FLISOL and keep hacking and moving.

Como montar tu proyecto de software libre

Aunque realmente no es el punto del blog al que voy a ligar ni tampoco diria que es mi tecnologia preferida. Si dire que muchos proyectos que quieras armar en una comunidad necesitaran un ambiente distribuido. Por que un ambiente distribuido? Por que queremos que usuarios puedan entrar, ver el codigo, descargarlo y compilarlo, tambien queremos que puedan editar antes de pensar en pedir permisos y contribuir. Esto es importante por que a diferencia del programador unico que hace programas, muchos proyectos son en equipos de programdores. En el software libre estos equipos son virtuales asi que pesa mucho la transparencia y tener estos conceptos antes de empezar el proyecto te puede ahorrar muchas tareas en el futuro.

Aunque el articulo no toca como usar SVN, si toca por ejemplo como instalarlo, configurarlo, y conectarlo desde NetBeans. Tambien muestra algunas opciones interesantes como el diff para ver las diferencias entre las versiones del archivo.

Finalmente se mete en terrenos que ya no van con el objeto de este post que es instalar servidor de aplicaciones via Hudson y un ambiente de testeo unitario. Creo que el testing es importante pero quizas es un tema para cuando ya se esta activamente desarrollando.
