PC-BSD Presentation at Festival Virtual de Software Libre

On Saturday, April 9, Festival Latinoamericano de Instalación de Software Libre (FLISOL) will be hosting a virtual conference (in Spanish). Details for joining the conference using streaming media, Second Life, and IRC are at the FLISOL website.

Sergio Ligregni will be giving a presentation on PC-BSD and a link to his presentation video will be posted here once it is available. In the mean time, here is the abstract for the presentation and a bio for Sergio:

This presentation explains to non-Open Source users the PC-BSD operating system, with a little demo of its easy install. It is meant to be more a video to encourage people to use PC-BSD than a tutorial, talking about a little history, the advantages of using it (making special mention of students and casual computer users, and also strong computer users like system administrators) and some project info, i.e. the video tells that if you are about to start a Computer Science major, you can contact the project and get a lot of learning from it, contributing with its development. The video will be presented at FLISOL Virtual (Latin American Free and Open Source Software Installation Festival, virtual mode). This video mainly express the idea: “PC-BSD is ready for you, you just have to use it!”.

Sergio Ligregni, Computer Science Engineer, lives in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. Currently he works as C++ Developer Architect for IBM, previous experience includes two years in C++ app development and one year in tech support and testing. He participated in Google Summer of Code 2010 with the Distributed Audit project (about to be implemented). He taught during one period at Queretaro’s Technological Institute a Programming Fundamentals class where he spread the word about FOSS, particularly PC-BSD.

    I hope that this presentation really motivates the people to use PC-BSD.
    Sergio; a good partner at work. I wish you a good Festival.

    Hopefully the Spanish translation of the handbook will be ready soon as well :-)
