University Outreach – New task or new mindset?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In early 2015, the Fedora Council proposed a new objective: the University Involvement Initiative. The purpose? Try to increase exposure of Fedora in university settings to gain new users, but also to hopefully gain new contributors. In order to accomplish this, is it a new task, or does it require a new mindset? In this talk, we begin looking at the current mindset and marketing thoughts around attracting university students to Fedora. What is working? What isn't? We will look at personal experiences among the presenters with getting involved with Fedora as a student for an example. We will focus on how changing the ways we approach reaching out to students might be the best way to begin making an impact on students with Fedora.

I’m a student of Business Informatics at the University of Tirana, and also a hacktivist of Open Labs. I’m passionate about philosophy of Open Source, i believe in transparency and cooperation, open and free Internet. I have been working on promoting FLOSS in Albania. Also I’m interested on empowering woman in society because women participation in open technology and culture is very important so we should all pay more attention.
