Sun University RoadTour at KTH

May 1, 2009

We had a very successful event last Wednesday at KTH. Experienced technology evangelist Roman Strobl came to Stockholm to have a presentation together with Sun campus ambassadors. Students were very enthusiastic and asking lots of question regarding open source, Sun, Oracle :), java, OpenSolaris and other project.

Since some of the students wanted us to post presentation slides and notes, we are sharing our presentation slides with you.

Software Freedom Day 2008 – Stockholm

September 20, 2008


Today is the “Software Freedom Day”. It is a special day for us, because it means freedom and openness of software. Today in the morning, we met with people from Linux, Red Hat, Ubuntu communities and some more volunteers and we distributed CDs, brochures, T-shirts and tried to inform people about the free and open source software.

That was a really good and successful day for us  since we have spoken with many people and celebrated the SFD 2008 in Stockholm. After having a successful event at Sergels Torg (The Centre of Stockholm), we had another event at KTH main campus. Many free and open source lovers were there as well with us and celebrated SFD 2008.

We met with each other and some students wanted us to organize more workshops about mobile programming, operating systems and java programming. Today was really a good day and we had a lot of fun. We made new friends, introduced ourselves and talked about the free and open source software and their benefits.

As we talked in the mingling session, after the presentation, we will start organizing workshops at KTH campuses. This year we will try to organize more events at main campus but we are also very interested in Kista campus. So, just keep looking at  our web blog and come and join us, to learn more, to make friends, have fun and improve yourselves.

In the city, we talked with people, especially with young people, to show them that they also have another options rather than the well-known software products in the market. We also tried to educate them about Solaris Operating System and encourage them to use it. It was a lot of fun, because we even talked with some sculptures and they loved Solaris and Java.

Here is the  presentation slides (You can download it if you want)
