In last year, I know there will be GNOME Hackfest in Yogyakarta and possibly in March. And I thought it wil be at end of March until Nuritzi tell in Endless Ambassador Telegram Group that it will be start from February 28th until March 2nd. I know this on February 25th. So I ask Kukuh Syafaat to go together and help since he also GNOME Foundation Members.
Actually at February 27th, there’s an outreach event at the local university. But I can’t manage to go because I arrived at Yogyakarta at 17:00 and it already finished. But I have dinner with few GNOME Developer (but no Mattias and Emel) for that day.
This is third time GNOME Asia Summit that I attended. My contribution in this summit as Asia Committee. I help everything that I can, such as:
designing web (Asep, Piko and Kukuh also help on this)
designing posters (Kukuh and Aris also help on this)
coordinating with other Asia Committee, GNOME Board and Local Committee
hand carry FANS Shoes (sponsor) from Jakarta to Delhi
I was excited actually when this year summit happen in India, it’s because Indonesia has similar culture with India and it’s common that Indonesia people watch Bollywood movie (my father still love Bollywood movie, but me, only Shakhrukh Khan and some others).
Personally, I also dreamed to visiting few historical place. I’ve been on Great Wall of China when attended GNOME Asia Summit 2016 in Beijing. And this year, we have Taj Mahal.
I write this post on personal point of view. I already write similar post in Indonesia Language in here. I’m not only translating, but change little bit of sentence.
Last year, when I’m attending GNOME Asia Summit 2014 in Beijing, Utian (since two years ago) wanna bring GNOME Asia Summit to Indonesia. I try to help as much as I can to chat with GNOME friends and the GNOME Board. Utian him self has Lightning Talk to explain his idea.
Acara Gnome Asia Sumit tahun ini adalah kali pertama saya mengikutinya. Tahun kemarin diadakan di Seoul namun saya tidak bisa ikut karena urusan kerjaan dan duit. Tahun ini diselenggarakan di Bejing dan alhamdulillah bisa ikutan.
Saya mengikutinya dengan cara ikut mendaftar sebagai pembicara. Sebelumnya saya mengisi formulir Call for Paper yang telah disediakan panitia dan topik yang saya bawakan sukses diterima.
Sebagian perjalanan saya dibiayai oleh pihak panitia (Gnome Foundation) dan sebagian lagi oleh BlankOn.
