Hi, Please don't take my words as true because I need more research for this. I was reading on Fedora LATAM they are considering to plan a FUDCON on march 2011 at Ciudad del Saber (City of Knowledge), Panama with RedHat making a sponsorship. If is it true maybe we can make some synergy there to attract openSUSE people from other latitudes. Would you consider this an opportunity to spread and making openSUSE visible regionally.
For South America that sounds like a pretty interesting spot. See if we have some Mexican friends here too, anyone from the carribean of course... For Brazil it's probably doable, yet it ain't to crazy from the US.
And cooperating with Fedora, why not. Depends of course on interest from our ambassadors in the region both in terms of organisation and attending. And to what extend fedora wants us there ;-)
Next month, October, Michael "Monty" Widenius is supposed to visit Panama to give a Talk about MariaDB to stimulate developers. True or Not I will see soon. Another opportunity to bring presence for openSUSE and SUSE on this region.
Well keep us updated and see if anyone in the region seems interested in this opportunity. I will be visiting Brazil in November (Latinoware) and will try to keep this in mind as a potential future meeting spot.
