Final ElggCamp San Francisco repercussions.

It’s always amazing to take a look back at what happened when the lights turned off. And while doing this we found this great article posted at the Elgg Community by it’s leader, Brett Profitt.

Another amazing repercussion of the ElggCamp SF is the soon-to-be London Elgg Meetup, where along with some drinks and good food, the London folks will be looking at the great material that came out of ElggCampSF… isn’t this awesome?! If you are interested on being part of it, you can confirm your participation here!

Hope you can join them! We can’t wait to hear what happened!

» SUCCESS!

We are really happy, ElggCamp SF was a mayor success (you can find more information at ElggCampSF.org) and the Condiminds’ team not only had a great time at California but also had an unforgettable experience with Elggers from every single part of the word. We learned a lot from their knowledge, experiences and also from their customs! It was a very fulfilling experience, both profesional and human.

Elgg’s word is spreading all over the world!

The day arrived and the first Elgg Meetup took place at London last week!
Under Laura Gill's organization and using the hashtag #LdnElggMeet, Elgg’s fans from the UK had a great evening sharing knowledge, experiences and questions on Elgg.

When we asked Laura about what motivated her to organize the meet up she told us "The company I work for, Surevine, have been working with Elgg since we first started 3 years ago. As the Elgg community is still small, I thought it would be a wonderful opportunity for developers and users to come together and share their experiences.

The main piece of this event was probably the video participation of Cash Costello, one of Elgg’s core developers. You can feel you were there taking a look at it here!

As Laura also said to us: "Meeting other developers for the first time, and watching the online networking and sharing since the event has been the thing I am most proud of" this is the main idea on ElggMeetups, growing from getting to know better each one of us and inviting new people to our meetings.

On the London Elgg Meetup site, you will find all the presentations, but in order to avoid you the trouble, here we have embed them! :)
Hope you enjoy the show!

Condiminds Presente en CISL2011 

La pasada semana se realizó en le Biblioteca Nacional de la Ciudad de Buenos Aires la Conferencia Internacional de Software Libre, de la cual fue un honor participar como expositoras presentando el Elgg.

Siempre es grato participar de charlas, pero cuando el aire que se respira está tan empapado de los valores que como amantes del Software Libre compartimos, más aún!

Tuvimos también el gusto de participar de varias charlas muy interesantes entre las que destacamos la brindada por Sergio AMADEU “Conferencia: La guerra de las patentes, las batallas de formatos y el control del conocimiento” y “Universidad y Software Libre” presentada por representantes de la Universidad de Belgrano, la Universidad Nacional de La Plata y la de Misiones. Claros ejemplos de que el uso del Software Libre a nivel institucional ya dejó de ser una Utopía y es parte de la realidad.


1) Sergio Amadeu, Universidad de San Pablo, Brasil.
2) Javier DÍAZ – Universidad Nacional de La Plata, Alejandra Yurkevich – Universidad Nacional de Misiones y Sergio Aguilera Universidad de Belgrano.

Posteriormente, para cerrar la jornada del día 1, junto con mi socia Susana Cipriota nos presentamos frente a una concurrencia cargada de ideas, curiosidad y ganas de participar, a quienes les contamos de qué se trata Elgg y les mostramos varios ejemplos de sitios desarrollados a partir del uso de esta plataforma que ya derribó las barreras de la red social, para transformase en un poderoso motor de desarrollo.

Lamentablemente, por compromisos laborales previos, no pudimos formar parte del segundo día de la conferencia, pero no tenemos dudas de que nos perdimos una gran jornada!

Agradecemos nuevamente a los presentes por su interés, colaboración y gratitud!
