On April 27, 2019, the Latin American Free Software Installation Festival (Flisol) was held in the city of San Cristóbal, Táchira state, Venezuela, the Flisol is an event that takes place simultaneously in many cities of Latin America and Spain, is the largest installation event in the world and is often complemented by talks and workshops.
In Venezuela at the moment we have had enough problems to be able to organize an event of this type, for which we did not know if we could really do it, everything was decided and things happened a few days before, practically 2 days before we got the headquarters, i’m very happy because we were able to do it in a primary school, the Carlos Rangel Lamus, where his teachers gave us all the support we could need despite the limitations and for that I am deeply grateful, in addition they have two computer labs with GNU / Linux and the doors were open for other events.
Preparación del Auditorio del Carlos Rangel Lamus
It was a small event due to little publicity, however we managed to summon some people and rather we were surprised that despite the very little publicity some people went to the event, this means there are many people willing to get involved in the community and also in receiving knowledge.
We had the following talks:
- Bloggin con GitHub y Markdown, a cargo de Kevin Hernández
- Diseño gráfico con Software libre por tatica
- Que es Software Libre por Leonardo Caballero
- Blender por Jean Carlos
During the whole event we did not have electricity (almost all city), but we were able to solve it with a car battery and a UPS
