Software Freedom Day Celebration Party has been successfully held in Shantou University on Sep,18th 2008. We had 85 attendees and everyone enjoyed himself in this activity. It is really my pleasure to share it with you. Belows are the details.
On Sep, 16th, we started posting our activity to the campus students.
From 10:30 to 13:30, we set up a stall to give a consultation and circularization. It is a very effective way to make as many students as possible to know about what is FOSS and SFD.
It was the first time for many of us to circularize leaflets. Tired but interesting.
We chose a place where most of the students would pass by to circularize the leaflets.
The celebration party was given at 7:30 pm in the evening. We had invited two guest speakers to give a talk. One is the president of the Linux Association Jianming Guo, he talked about the history and development of FOSS.
The other one is the vice president of the Linux Association Zhen Qin, he talked about the use of FOSS and analyze the different performance of them.
I gave a talk about the Installation of OpenSolaris. OpenSolaris is an Open Source Operating System of Sun. In the beginning, I made an introduction of myself.
At first, I introduced the VirtualBox to the atendees and told them how to install OpenSolaris on it.
During the talk, questions were kept rarising. Of course, prizes had been prepared for the ones who were active.
All the attendees were active and showed great zeal for knowledge.
In this activity, we finished 60 survey forms. What's more, most of the students were eager to join our OSUM. Thanks to my Manager Wang Yang, my Coordinator Wang Ling-heng and the members of Linux Association.
