Por fin! 50% ! hace un mes cuando comencé con esta traducción pensé que no la terminaría a tiempo, sin embargo, ya estando en el 50% si veo luz al final del camino. Esta vez les quise dejar un poco las estadísticas de los avances de traducción del manual de usuarios de darktable en caso de que alguien tenga curiosidad. Para mi asombro, a pesar de que hay días en los que las labores personales (o simplemente la falta de energía) me han hecho desistir, siento que el avance ha sido progresivo y sin pausa.
En fin, para aquellos que quieran seguir leyendo el manual, les dejo el enlace de descarga. Recuerden que es una primera traducción con muchos errores (tanto de sintaxis como de sentido) por lo que si ven cosas extrañas no duden en dejarme sus comentarios.

I’ve been posting these to the design-team mailing list lately but thought it might be good to blog, too.
We had a meeting today. In attendance were myself, ryanlerch, gnokii,
mleonova, riecatnor, sam08, mbriza, garrett, and tatica.
Here’s a quick run-through of what we discussed:
Our presentation to the Fedora council is going to be at 5 PM UTC / 12 pm EST
(post DST) in #fedora-meeting on Monday, November 2. It will be an IRC
meeting and anyone is welcome to come.
The topics I’ll present to the council are covered pretty well in this
summary from last meeting:
The main change in the message I think is that swag distribution /
production varies by geo.
For the FAD we would like to bring up to them, it is looking like July
2016 in Boston would be a good time/location. It is close to Flock the
next month in EMEA, but EMEA in particular is expensive for our current
Our new meeting time is going to shift next meeting due to daylight
savings time. Today the meeting was 1200 UTC / 8 AM EDT… next meeting
(Thursday, November 5) will be at 1300 UTC / 8 AM EST. If you have a
daylight savings shift, the time won’t change for you; if you don’t, the
meeting will be one hour later. Here’s a breakdown of the new time for
I’m not going to be around from about mid November-December until
February or March, so ryanlerch and gnokii volunteered to chair the
meetings when I’m out.
mleonova completed this one with sticker designs for the 3 Fedora editions.
mleonova completed this one with icon designs for all of the various
Fedora images. There is some great new logo artwork in this ticket worth
mleonova completed this one. It’s an excellent logo design worth taking
a look at.
mleonova completed this one. She added a photo of the finished printed
book to the ticket so you can see how it came out.
This one is waiting on an update from Ankur; pinged him in the ticket.
This one is waiting for feedback from mattdm; pinged him in the ticket.
anuradhaw gave us an update and pointed to her code; puiterwijk put some fixes in (the code was written to a newer version of askbot) and pushed her code to stage and you can see it here:
There are some minor issues that need to be addressed I think before we can push to prod. anuradhaw indicated she’s studying for exams but after her exams will have more time to come back to this project. We will wait for anuradha to finish her exams to try to address the issues.
This ticket needed an owner so ryanlerch grabbed it. Thanks, Ryan!
We thought we were finished with this one but it turns out there are
some issues. ryanlerch kindly picked it back up to fix.
This ticket needed an updating. We discussed this design at the Flock
design clinic; ryanlerch created a repo on pagure.io and added a mockup
at the event that he committed then; he also has newer work he did
post-Flock that he will upload later. I also have a mock from flock I
never uploaded so I’ll upload that too.
This ticket is so close to being done, the logo just needs a few tiny
tweaks. Pinged Yogi on it.
Yogi completed the template work; we just need it to be posted to the
wiki. Yogi is going to work on this. (He contacted me after the meeting)
riecatnor asked for feedback on her work for this one:
– she designed three updated options for the group icon based on
feedback from before, and the 3rd one was the favorite.
– there’s an icon used in the dark blue bar in the upper left of this
screen; the group icon should hopefully work there as well:
– in context, the users icon stands out a bit in the full screen mockup
because the fedora logo isn’t square. we suggested riecatnor modify the
mockup to add a square border along the outside of the icon to see if
that fixes the issue
mleonova asked for feedback on this logo design. the favorites were the
upper left and lower left versions; the designs were well-liked
sam08 created these awesome designs. We don’t know if the reporter used
them, but they are all quite nice. I asked sam08 to post the SVGs and
we’ll close the ticket and advertise them more widely to the Fedora
community to use.
Corebird 1.1 was recently released and it is now available in the official Fedora repos.
Major changes that this new version of corebird includes are:
Update via the Software application in Fedora, or on the command line with yum or dnf.
pkcon update f23-backgrounds-base f23-backgrounds-extras
For the last couple of years I didn't manage to attend myself the Linux Install Fest traditionally organized by ROSEdu at Politehnica University of Bucharest, which is a shame, since there is a lot of cool stuff going on. But such is life, there are so many things to do and so little time left...
I couldn't stop myself from playing a bit with the charts data and make my own one. Just don't read too much into it, I don't think it shows personal preferences or such (if you DO have a personal preference, you probably don't need an install fest):
Anyway, I just wanted to say: good work ROSEdu!

Desde hace un par de años ayudo con la traducción oficial de darktable pero mi verdadera meta siempre ha sido traducir el manual de usuarios oficial. Es realmente una tarea inmensa porque estos chicos siempre andan agregando cosas nuevas y fabulosas a la aplicación, por lo que mi tiempo de traducción casi siempre se ve alejado del manual; sin embargo, por fin conseguí nuevamente el tiempo y las ganas para retomar mi trabajo de traducción y necesito de la ayuda de todos.
Los próximos meses estaré publicando capítulo por capítulo del primer borrador del manual de usuarios y necesito revisores! Si están interesados, solo deben leer el pdf que está adjunto a este artículo y dejarme sus comentarios. Es posible que encuentren errores de tipeo o de sintaxis, incluso cosas sin mucho sentido, pero espero todas las correcciones que puedan darme. El recurso original de comparación se encuentra siguiendo este enlace, en caso de que vean sentencias que no tengan mucho sentido y quieran compararlas para una mejor traducción.
De antemano, les agradezco a todos quienes se den el tiempo de leer aunque sea una o dos páginas y proveer comentarios.

Last weekend it was time for another workshop at Smallworld Cambodia in Phnom Penh. This time a Blender workshop. There was 16 registrations and a lot of the participants showed up. So the lecture room in Smallworld was good filled. Smallworld was full that day anyway as also the WordPress Meetup took place that day. So a lot of Open Source topics that day in Smallworld.
Next thing, meeting for BarCamp, TranslationSprint and Installfest…. Lot to do
We broke this time nearly all records since we doing the Supplemental Wallpaper Contest with Nuancier. We had 199 submissions, where actually 157 ended up in the pot for the elections. These came from 73 submitters, a lot of them new contributors. Unfortunately we also broke the record for rejected submissions. The most of them contained a trademarked logo, notice that includes our own also! One thing was also more negative, a lot of participants uploaded, not just 3 pictures as many more. Some of them submitted a lot and mostly iterations. That leads to a problem, the Fedora community shows a strong love for “blue”, means if somebody submitting just iterations of a blue pattern, he has a good chance. But it can be that all of his iterations are elected, instead of other better submissions with higher quality.
So, with the next contest, we have to limit to amount of submissions that can be made. Hopefully we can implement also some other features to.
But for now here are the winners:
FUDcon siempre ha sido la forma de interactuar con otros, conocer a esos colaboradores que han sido tus compañeros de trabajo el último año ( y en muchos casos, por periodos mas largos). Con el paso del tiempo, Fedora ha experimentado una serie de cambios en un corto periodo y ha sido muy difícil mantener el ritmo, especialmente ya que la mayoría de los colaboradores tenemos una vida fuera de la comunidad.
Tenemos personas que nunca han asistido a un FUDcon pero han ido a un Flock, personas que nunca han ido a un Flock pero han ido a varios FADs, y personas que no tienen ni idea de donde comenzar. Los eventos de Fedora deberían funcionar como una forma de preparar a los colaboradores, desde el evento mas pequeño hasta el mas grande, para que puedan aprender a sacar el máximo provecho de sus viajes. Durante el FUDcon Córdoba 2015, tuvimos una larga charla sobre el futuro de las conferencias en Latinoamerica, las cuales necesitan con desesperación una renovación.
Aunque los FADs son eventos que se enfocan en un equipo en particular (la mayoría de las veces), deberíamos animar a nuestras comunidades locales a tener FADs mensuales para que no solo los organizadores, sino los asistentes, puedan experimentar lo que es ser parte de un Evento Premier de Fedora. La última vez que hubo un FAD en LATAM fue en el 2013 en Managua, así que, ¿Por qué nos detuvimos?
Uno de los mayores problemas en los FUDcon de LATAM es que tenemos que esperar todo un año para reunirnos y esperamos que la gente asista simplemente por su amor a Fedora, cuando la verdad es que debemos cosechar durante todo el año los planes para que podamos ver los resultados en el FUDcon. Otra de las ideas de tener FADs en Línea es proveer una conferencia que pueda ser vista en cualquier rincón de LATAM, gastando menos tiempo/esfuerzo/dinero, permitiéndonos identificar el potencial de cada país, para que, una vez nos llegue el FUDcon a la puerta, sepamos cuales son nuestras fortalezas y debilidades, y podamos sacar el mayor provecho de la conferencia, pero además de difundir nuestro trabajo a una gran cantidad de personas, los equipos locales ganarán experiencia en la organización de reuniones, eventos pequeños y se conocerán mejor los unos a los otros. En países como Argentina y Brasil donde el territorio es realmente enorme, es normal encontrar colaboradores que jaman se han conocido cara a cara.
¿Por qué le estamos pidiendo a Desarrolladores, Empaquetadores y colaboradores técnicos organizar conferencias si tenemos un equipo de Mercadeo? Esta es la pregunta que siempre ha venido a mi cabeza cada vez que voy a una conferencia. En LATAM, somos 15 países participando en el proyecto Fedora, pero solo tenemos miembros del equipo de Mercadeo en 4 de ellos. Tenemos países donde reclutamos muchos usuarios y los convertimos en colaboradores para hacer crecer a nuestra región, pero si por ejemplo, le pedimos a un empaquetador olvidar sus paquetes por 6 meses para organizar un FUDcon… ¿Estamos haciendo lo correcto?
Es bien sabido que parte de la organización debe ser realizada por el equipo local, pero esto no quiere decir que están preparados para hacerlo. Hay cartas que necesitan ser redactadas, reuniones, presupuestos, agendas y más cosas que deben ser organizadas, y muchos de los colaboradores que quieren asumir el reto no han organizado ni sus propios cumpleaños. Entonces, ¿Por qué estamos poniendo tanta presión sobre nuestros colaboradores si tenemos a nuestra disposición la herramienta correcta para hacer el trabajo? Deberíamos tener un pequeño equipo local para ayudar a liberar un poco la presión de nuestro talento principal. Acá algunas ideas para este equipo.
FUDcon LATAM necesita adaptarse siempre al organizador local, lo cual significa cambio de horarios, distintas charlas, y otros temas que no son siempre iguales en cada país, sin embargo, con el equipo de eventos podemos asegurarnos de hacer un mejor trabajo. Acá algunas ideas:
Si leíste hasta aquí déjame decirte GRACIAS por tomarte el tiempo de leer este post enorme y aburrido que probablemente tenga mucha información que ya conocías.
Como comunidad, hemos vivido tiempos difíciles siendo parte de un ecosistema tan complicado que incluye tantos países y a veces perdemos empuje, es difícil, pero aún estamos aquí, solo esperamos que no pierdan el internes ni la fe en nosotros, porque aún somos Fedora.
Si te interesó alguno de los temas de este artículo, se libre de dejar un comentario, hacerme un ping en IRC (como tatica) o simplemente enviarme un email (taticaATfedoraprojectDOTcom) si quieres discutir algo de forma más privada. La idea es crear un debate saludable que nos ayude a identificar nuestras debilidades y nos permita convertirlas en fortalezas para continuar creciendo como comunidad.
NOTA: Los cronogramas para los FADs vendrán mas adelante, sean pacientes :)
The Fedora Cloud Working Group recently decided that in Fedora 24 (or perhaps a bit further out depending on how the tooling/process can support it) that the Atomic version of Fedora is going to be the primary focus of the working group. (Background discussion on their list is available too.)
This has an affect on the Fedora website as the Fedora Cloud edition shifts from a buffet of kind of equally-positioned cloud- and container-related images to a more focused set of images optimized for container hosting (using Atomic) and a set of more clearly ancillary images that are also useful for cloud/container deployment of Fedora that aren’t based on the Atomic platform. We need to position these images accordingly on the website to meet the new model.
Matthew Miller and I discussed how the Cloud WG decision might effect the website and ideas for how we could update the website to suit for Fedora 24. One idea for how we could do this:
Anyhow, this is just an idea. The Atomic brand is already a pretty strong one, so I think trying to force something like “Fedora Atomic” under the current cloud logomark might miss the opportunity for Fedora to work with the brand recognition Atomic already has upstream. The question is – is that even possible? Luckily, I think the answer might be yes
I poked around a little bit with the Atomic logo (I believe tigert created the original awesome logo!), thickened it up and rounded out the lines a little bit so I could use it as a mask on the purple Fedora triangle texture in the same way the original cloud mark is used in the current cloud logo. I think it looks pretty cool; here it is in the context of the other Fedora Edition logos:
I was kind of worried they wouldn’t hang together as a set, especially since the three logomarks here had been so close (Cloud’s mark was a 90 degrees rotated Server mark, and Workstation is Server with the top two bars merged to make a display,) but in practice it looks like this is really not a concern.
On the to-do list next are mockups for how a potential new cloud.fpo site might look as well as an updated getfedora.org/cloud (or getfedora.org/atomic as the case might be.) I started poking at mocking up a cloud.fpo site for the base cloud images and other cloud goodies but will probably need to iterate that on the Cloud WG list to get it right.
Ideas? Feedback? Comments are open of course
For the past few weeks I have been working on mockups and the HTML/CSS for a new Fedora website, the Fedora Developer portal (likely to eventually live at developers.fedoraproject.org.) The goal of the site is to provide resources and information to developers building things on Fedora (not primarily developers contributing to Fedora itself.)
A bunch of folks have been contributing content to the site, and Adam Šamalík and Petr Hracek set up the initial first-cut prototype of the site, configuring jekyll to generate the site and building out the basic framework of the site. The prototype was shared with the Fedora Environment and Stacks Working Group mailing list, and after some feedback and iteration on the initial prototype, Petr asked me to take a look at the overall UX / design of the site. So that’s how I came to be involved here.
First, to better understand the space this site is in, I took a look at various developer sites for all sorts of OS platforms and took in the sorts of information they provided and how they organized it. I looked at:
One thing that was common to all of these sites was the developer.*.com URL. (developer.windows.com does redirect to the dev.windows.com URL.) I think because of this, developer.fedoraproject.org seems like it would match the broader platform developer URL pattern out there.
Another thing they seemed to all have in common were directories of technologies – frameworks, platforms, langauges, tools, etc. – affiliated with their own platform. Many focused on deployment too – mostly to app stores, but deployment nonetheless.
Looking at the main structure of the site in the initial prototype, I felt it honestly was a pretty good organizational structure given the other developer sites out there. I wanted to tweak some of the wording of the headers (to make them action-oriented,) and had some suggestions as to additional content pieces that could be developed, but for the most part the prototype had a solid structure. I drew up a sitemap in Inkscape to help visualize it:
With confidence in the site information architecture / basic structure of the content, I then started mocking up what it could look like. Some things I considered while drawing this out:
So here’s what I came up with, taking some article content from developerblog.redhat.com to fill in the blog post areas –
A few notes about the design here:
Petr had also asked if I’d be able to provide the CSS, images, and icons for the site once the mockups were done. So I decided why not? The framework he and Adam used to set up the site was a static framework I was not familiar with – Ruby-based Jekyll, also used by GitHub Pages – and I thought it might be fun to learn more about it.
If you check out the tree for the website implementation, you’ll see a bunch of basic HTML files as well as markdown (*.md) files (the latter mostly in the content repo, which gets set up as a subdirectory under the website tree when you check the project out.) Jekyll lets you break down pages of the site into reusable chunks (e.g., header, footer, etc.), and it also lets you design different layouts that you can link to different pieces of content.
Whether any given page / chunk of content you’re working on is a *.md file or a *.html file, Jekyll has this thing at the top of each file called ‘front matter’ where you can configure the page (e.g., set which layout gets applied to it,) or even define variables. This is where I set the longer titles for each page/section as well as placed the descriptions for the sections that get placed in the title banner area.
Insert random interlude here
So I ran into a crazy, probably obscure issue with Jekyll during this process – due to my being a newbie and misunderstanding how it worked, yes, but Jekyll did happily build and spew out the site without complaint or pointing out the issue, so perhaps this little warning might help someone else. (Red Hatters Alex Wood and Jason Rist were really helpful in trying to help me debug this crazy issue. The intarwebs just totally failed on this one.)
I was trying to use page variables when trying to implement the title banners at the top of every page – I needed to know which page I was on in order to display the correct page title and description at the top. The variables were just spitting out blank nothingness in the built page. It turns out the issue was that I was using *.md files that had the same name as *.html files, and some variables were set in one file and some another file, and Jekyll seemed to want to just blank them all out when it encountered more than one file with the same base file name. I was able to fix the problem by merging the files into one file (I stuck with HTML and deleted the *.mds.)
So the implemented site design is in place in the repo now, and I’ve handed the work back off the team to tweak, hook up functionality to, and to finish up content development. There is a development build of the website at developer-phracek.rhcloud.com, but I’m pretty sure that’s behind from the work I finished last week since I see a lot of issues I know I fixed in the code. It’s something to poke around though and use to get a feel for the site.
If you poked around the development version of the site, you might have noticed there’s quite a bit more content needed. This is something you can help with!
The team has put together a contribution guide, and the core site content is basically formatted in Markdown syntax (Here’s a neat markdown tutorial.) More information about how to contribute is on the front page of the content repo in GitHub.

El FUDCon Córdoba fue uno de esos eventos que nos recuerda porqué hacemos lo que hacemos. Un evento lleno de camaradería, que en medio de su intimidad, nos permitió compartir ideas, proyectos y experiencias.
Lleno de buenas vibras y energías, de gente increíble que con sus conferencias demuestra ser expertos en lo que hacen, con miles de abrazos que nos muestran la calidad de las personas que forman parte de la comunidad… en fin, un evento de esos que no quieres que se terminen.
El evento tuvo casi 20 conferencias y 8 talleres, en los que los asistentes tuvieron la oportunidad de conocer más sobre Fedora, lo que hacemos y lo que nos gusta. Abarcamos temas desde Empaquetado, desarrollo, sysadmin, diseño, documentación, traducción y más.
Espero que este pequeño video les muestre lo “re-linda” que es ser parte de la familia Fedora y les anime a unirse. Gracias en especial a los organizadores, Matias Maceira, Valentin Basel y Laura Fontanesi, por dedicar tanto de su tiempo personal a reunirnos y permitirnos ser parte de su día a día durante el evento.
Se vienen más artículos, los que contienen las fotos, sobre mi participación en el evento, y el mas importante sobre las metas y retos que nos hemos propuesto para levantar LATAM y darle un giro de 360 grados que de seguro, nos hará crecer aún mas como comunidad.
Internet is this nice technology, who makes it possible to give a workshop even without being at a place. So yesterday I gave a workshop from Cambodia in Germany. But I had interesting expiriences with in Mumble did not work well, even its lighter and has good latency handling but Google hangout did work, I think Google has some priority in the network here, what is strange. But all participants from https://linux-statt-windows.org had fun in the workshop and learned something on the end.
So next weekend next event this time Software Freedom Day where I will give an talk, here in Phnom Penh.
Last weekend, I had the first Inkscape workshop at smallworld. It was very sucessful, we had 13 participants. Thats the maximum, the small room in smallworld can handle for an workshop. All the participants had a lot of fun and achieved the goal. Some of them was really talented. But the want more Inkscape workshops, well this time I have the time to do it
The submission phase for the supplemental wallpaper for Fedora 23 isnt over yet. There are so far 169 submissions. But I had to reject this time already 40 because they used material of other pictures without quotation or an trademark was included. So we have 120 submissions in the pot right now.That are right now my favorites:
But there is still one week you can submit your wallpaper, so grab your camera and shoot some nice pictures
Not long ago, there was a talk about how people deal with their photos: organize, edit, archive and such, and I gave then a partial answer. Why partial? Because I follow two slightly different processes, one when the photos are made for fun and the other when they are for work. Since that answer was partial and made behind a walled garden, I feel the need to expand it in a public piece. I don't pretend what I do is perfect, actually I recognize some flaws myself, but I got there after years of improvements and is not final.
As a sidenote, I do use a Linux desktop, MATE under Fedora, and almost exclusively Free Software, GIMP, darktable, ImageMagick, UFRaw, G'MIC, but what I do is pretty generic, can be done with various other tools. I may follow with another piece on using these tools.
Fun is fun
When I talk about pictures made for fun, I mean they are not made for a paying customer, period. This can include anything from photos made for exhibitions, snapshots with the daughter, pictures for my blog, for Wikipedia and whatnot. Usually I take them with an older APS-C DSLR, a Canon 600D, but sometime I bring the FF DSLR. For the most part, I try to protect the better camera, but sometime I am lazy and grab whatever is closer or greedy and want prettier pictures.
The first thing to be noted is that for fun pictures, in the large majority of cases I shoot in JPEG. ...yes, I hear the outrage for such a blasphemy, but the truth is, JPEG is good enough for most of those pics, RAW would be a waste of space and time. When I feel the shoot is important or the light is really difficult, I do use RAW, even for fun pictures.
As a matter of discipline and to keep myself in shape, I try to take pictures as often as possible, ideally every day, and as soon as possible I download the pictures in my computer and then erase the memory cards. The camera has to be ready at any moment to take as much pictures as possible.
I do not use any fancy software to organize the pictures, just the file manager and a directory structure. Of course, it helps that the file manager, with the right plugin, can display thumbnails even for RAWs. The photos made in a day go into a folder with a name like YYYY-MM-DD, for example yesterday pics are in the folder 2015-09-02. Sometime, when I want to find the folder easier, I add a keyword, as there I have a 2015-08-14-seaside
As soon as the pictures are downloaded, I try to process them - the next day probably others will come and the newest are always the most exciting. So, I enter the folder and delete some pictures: those which are failed or boring. I still don't delete enough (or still take too many), but I'm getting there, improving continuously (space is cheap, some will say). From the too many undeleted pictures left, I copy a few in a working folder, to be edited and then published. Every year I have a new working folder, and when there are more pictures from a certain event (say, more than 10), they go in a subfolder.
Almost exclusively I edit my 'for fun' pictures with GIMP, this is the editing software I feel the most comfortable with and the one that gives me the most control. There are not many pictures, so I can take my time with them. If there are RAWs, GIMP will call UFRaw for the import, and in the rare cases it is needed, G'MIC will provide some advanced filters. For batch operations like mass-resize or mass-watermarking, there is ImageMagick.
Speaking of watermarks, I almost never do it, but there are are a few exceptions, like the pictures which I suspect have the potential to be 'stolen' by newspapers (it happened a few times, even with watermarked pictures). I firmly believe a watermark will destroy the image, so I try to avoid that.
Again, because next day may come with another pictures, I try to publish my photos as soon as possible. Still, I don't want to spam my viewers, so sometimes there is a delay. For the photography blog, I don't post more than 4 items a day, and for photography sites (the likes of 500px) I post only once in a while. Social media is something I still have to work on: I lost a lot of readers (or at least interactions with readers) a couple of years ago, I blame the loss on posting too much and try to work on it. Publishing go hand in hand with license, so almost everything shoot for fun is published under a CC-BY-SA license: free to use, free to modify, free to almost anything.
Of course, there is archiving. From time to time (not on a schedule, mostly when I run out of space) I move the unedited pictures, with their directory structure, from the computer's hard drive to two external drives, in a manual process. The edited pictures stay on the computer for the entire year, maybe even next year. They have copies online and at least the copy on G+ is high quality (do you know Facebook destroys your pictures with aggressive compression and metadata removal?)
As I said before, I recognize some flaws. The most important couple of them:
Work is serious
For work, you have to deliver the best result from a technical point of view, so when there is a paying customer I use my full frame DSLR, which happens to be a Canon 6D, a camera recognized for its good low-light performance. As for shooting, the pictures are taken as RAW and JPEG. JPEG is there as a backup, while the RAW is the one to be edited. Here I need 1) to get the most possible from the pictures and 2) deal with low-light situations which happens a lot when doing event photography.
Again, as soon as I get home, I download the pictures from the memory cards. But this time I do not delete the cards, I put them in a closet, to have a backup somewhere until the processing is done. Processing the photos for an event may take up to a few weeks.
I have a different directory hierarchy for the work photos, so I copy there all the files, in a directory named after the specific client or work. If the work was an event, the first thing is to make a quick and small selection (10-20 pictures) which I edit fast and deliver the same day, as a preview. The idea is for the client to have something really fast, and if he wants to post pictures on social media while it's hot, he can post pictures from me, not some crappy phone-made images.
Then I parse the files with the file manager and its native image viewer, deleting only very few, and make a selection with images to be edited and delivered. From this selection I copy all the RAWs in a different, working folder.
Considering the large amount of images (for a wedding it can be around 1000 pictures), editing with GIMP would be a poor option, so I use darktable instead. After a few days or weeks, depending of the size of the work, images are exported with darktable at a resolution good for large prints. Then for some images that I think need more advanced editing, I open and process them further with GIMP.
After that, I deliver to the client the images, in two sets: one at big, printable, resolution, and another resized for web use. Of course, there is no watermark in sight, the client paid for the images, they are not to be tainted in any way.
If the job requires it, then I start working on the printed album. Here the work is done with GIMP ...blasphemy I hear again? Why not use Scribus? Simple: the print shop requires sRGB JPEGs, and they do a very nice job with that. When there is to be made an engraving on the album's leather cover, I prepare it with Inkscape and save in a vector format (PDF/EPS).
Only after the printed album was delivered to the client I can consider the job done. Then I move the files (sources, edits, album pages) to the two external drives and erase the memory cards.
Of course, somewhere during this process, when I get the time, a few pictures are added to my online portfolios. I have to advertise myself, right? This time, as the images are made for the client, the license can't be a free one. Sorry for that, I wish clients open to free licenses, I would offer a discount for that.
Durante mi estadía en Argentina para la celebración del FUDcon, estaré formando parte del II Ciclo de Talleres Sobre Herramientas Libres, conversando un poco sobre la Edición Gráfica Libre. Utilizaremos herramientas como Gimp, Inkscape y Darktable, con la idea de solventar dudas y curiosidades de los asistentes, Quienes me conocen saben que será algo divertido y quienes no… los espero!
Los talleres tienen como objetivo realizar una introducción y fomentar el uso de herramientas de software libre en diferentes áreas como el diseño gráfico, la edición de audio y la impresión 3D. También, habrá un espacio para la discusión acerca de nuevas prácticas culturales y la propiedad intelectual en tiempos de internet.
Cronograma de actividades:
Lunes 7/9: ” Edición Gráfica Libre” Breve introducción al uso de las herramentas Darktable, Gimp e Inkscape para edición de imágenes y fotografías. A cargo de María “Tatica” Leandro.
Lunes 21/09: “En la cresta de la ola: impresión 3D” Diseño y fabricación de impresoras 3D con software y hardware libres. A cargo de Valentín Basel
Lunes 5/10: Taller: “Audio para todos, Ruido para nadie” Grabación y edición de sonido con el software libre Audacity. A cargo de Marcelo Tuller
Lunes 19/10: Charla-taller “Primavera remix: ¿cambio de paradigma o triunfo del robo? Discusiones sobre la propiedad intelectual en tiempos de Internet” Espacio para pensar los recorridos desde la persecución de piratas, plagiarios, Niks y engordadores de Borges hasta las propuestas para acceder y habitar la cultura. Presentan: Ana Almada, Carolina Goth y Maximiliano Giraldes.
The first one is Design Clinic, where you can come if you need help from the Design Team, Máirín Duffy, Ryan Lerch, Marie Nordin, Meghan Richardson and me will be there to helping you with problems you have. You can come with everything, you need a poster for an event so com, you need a logo so come, you need help with UX design so come, you have any idea where we can improve from the design perspective come and speak with us.
So far we have 3 projects we want already to work on:
So if you have something just come along and grab us for help! You can also write to the design team mailing list, if you are not at Flock and have a thing where we should work on.
The second thing I have is the “Wallpaper Hunt“. As you might know I am responsible for getting the supplemental wallpapers for each Fedora release. Btw. our nice little application for doing that was started on first Flock but looking back to that Flock, I received after it some submissions from Charleston, that was definitely not good and there was so nice motives in Charleston to sad we had not one wallpaper in the next release which was shot during Flock. And there was so nice motives! This Flock I want to change that. With Marie Nordin I located a nice spot where we want to go and try to shoot pictures that can show up in Fedoras next version.
So I know we have talented photographer between us, lets get together going there and try get some nice pictures on this way we can share our knowledge and equipment and I think we will have some fun to. The only chance we have to do it, is Wednesday after the talks, so come to me before I will tell you where we meet.
On Saturday as you can see in the schedule we have some time then get the pictures processed.
I’m writing a blog post after very long. Somewhere between the last post and this one, I’ve graduated and started working for Mesitis Capital as the Product Designer. On the open source community front, I haven’t programmed much recently, but I have been mentoring a couple of students over this year’s GSoC. Two weeks ago, I was at FUDCon in Pune. Here’s a quick summary.
For the first evening, it was mostly just people arriving and us meeting up over dinner at Kushal’s place. I really enjoyed meeting Suchakra after long - we had a quick discussion around our AskFedora student Anuradha, since mid-term evaluations were around the corner. I met Harish and Danishka who live in Singapore - they shared with me tips around housing, transport, expenses, hackerspaces - all the things I’ll need when I move later this year.
I had a workshop the next day, so I wanted to sleep “early”, but it got pretty late as usual ;-)
The morning was mostly meeting folks who arrived that day - Gnokii, Tuan and the rest. Come afternoon, and it was time for my workshop on building responsive front end. This was my first attempt doing few things - conducting a session without slides, programming stuff on the stage, the topic itself - and I think a lot of those choices were great because I ended up heavily modifying what I had wanted to show. I do regret that I couldn’t get around to teaching the stuff I really wanted to, but given a beginner audience, I’m happy they picked up some key ideas. A couple of them also emailed me after the event asking for further resources, so it does look like it was handy.
In the evening, we had a sort of mini FUDPub - most of us speakers & volunteers staying at the hotel went to a nearby Pub. Gnokii, Somvandda, Yogi, Danishka and I got on a table and we were discussing breweries and food - pretty interesting stuff. It turns out Charul and Sinny were neighbors - so Suchakra and I ended up chatting about work, projects, college life, etc - again sleeping quite late.
I didn’t have any sessions scheduled for the second day, so I took the opportunity to hang out with students. I learned that many students from Amrita University, Kollam were in town, so we headed up for lunch together, discussing projects and scope for them to contribute to some FOSS projects. Later during the day, some students from MITCOE spent quite some time with me; we talked about how the Fedora Project is organized, who does what, and how one gets into areas that interests them. There were two students interesting in contributing to the Design team, so I explained them about various things Design team does, the people involved, tools they use, and encouraged them to attend the workshops from the Design track on the final day.
In the evening, we had the social event at bluO in Phoenix MarketCity, a large shopping complex. There was bowling organized, great food, and a very energetic environment.
I had an early joint workshop session on how Git works with Mayur. Once again, catering to the audience, we decided to focus on what it is, and how to fiddle with it. While Mayur took the stage and maintained an overall flow around the session, I went around looking at people’s screens and ensuring everyone was doing the right thing. There were lots of questions popping around Git server centric infrastructure - it was fun answering them. There were also a couple of people who weren’t new to Git but didn’t like merge conflicts, so we sat down and helped them around it.
Harish soon followed with a key signing party. I’m happy I attended it - it was great refresher material and I got some concepts cleared in my head around the whole GPG process. As it always is the case, I learn better by doing, so I’ll try to teach it to somebody and hopefully become more clear that way.
For the night, we had dinner at the hotel - once again, it was fun recommending Indian dishes to my non local friends, and it does look like they enjoyed it.
Overall, amazing time at my first FUDCon. I look forward to it next year! :-)

I will do in November a new event about Free Software graphic tools – FOSSOGRAPHY. This event plans to bring developer and user of this software together. Its thought of a kind of showcase about the newest developments in this areas and what can be done with free software. The projects shall win this way new users as even more contributors.
But it shall be also a place where the various programmers of the different projects can meet and connect to work on stuff where the programs should be working together. But also a place where you can come and tell people about an idea you have that might get software in this area improved.
The idea to this evnet, was born a long time ago as another event who looks wants the same doesnt become what it should be.
After the decision was made to do it was open the place where it should be and there was a lot of thinking if it is a good idea to go first time to Asia. Yeah there are some disadvantages, like working style of Asians or the most Europeans/Americans think flying there would be more expensive as travelling inside Europe or the the amount of FOSS contributors isnt that high on this continent. But at a certain point we as free software movement have to go to Asia to get them involved and not always saying, we dont have contributors there!
But there is something else, we have to carry the costs for the event, where is actually a positive thing doing it in Asia as that gets amazingly cheap as well we want to support speakers and projects with there travel costs. We try to collect most of this money from the community, so if you believe in the goal of the event and/or using this tools, you can help us. We made a pledgie for that purpose and an indiegogo campaign will follow. But watch we want to give you something in return!
I was last week in Pune for FUDCon, so its time to write about the experiences.
I had to start my travel 2 days before the event from airport Leipzig flying to Munich, well the travel to Leipzig and also the checkin and flight was without something to mention. Just one hour ride to Leipzig and 40 minutes flight to Munich. I had a long layover in Munich so I checked before the situation with WIFI and electricity, well Munich has free wifi and they even proudly anounced that the equipped the gate areas with power supply, well they was there but simple not working. With a little searching I found one which was working but there was nothing to sit there so I spent the time in EMEA Ambassadors meeting standing
Also for that day there was no action, boarding the plane in the morning and leaving it in Mumbai in the night. The immigration process with the TVOA visa worked well, except to find the counter for them was difficult. So if you travel to India and eligible to get it, thats the easiest way.
Outside the airport Prima Yogi Loviniltra and a volunteer did already wait for me, just Ryan Lerch was missing but he joined as a few minutes later. So the fetch on the airport was well organized. The cab ride took some time but interesting conversations made that not feelable. So we arrived in the morning in Pune just enough for 3 hours sleep.
I had not really time for a good breakfast but I needed one as I had not a dinner either, but Kushal was already standing there telling me I was to late. But I managed to grab something to eat even the waiter always removed my tools when I grabbed something. Also here the transport was well organized and the bus for bringing us to MIT was already waiting.
On the first day I joined a few sessions but I will write only something about the most important for me. We had a BoF session for the next APAC FUDCon. What I am worried about is the style which is coming up there, just finding some point why a thing not might be good instead of trying to find out how problems can be solved!
I started the day with Jiri Eischmanns presentation about the Fedora workstation and his presence and future. I joined several other talks to, where I just want to mention the Achieving Community Goals With Fedora one from Tenzin Chokden, awesome job of Joerg Simon and Fabian Affolter and their l10n hackfest for the tibetian language, good work. Besides that I had many organizational conversations for organzing stuff in the APAC region.
This was actually the most busy day for me as I had in the morning my own workshop about using Inkscape. Well there are some negative things, the room was not the best choice, its hard to work on a small table attached to the chair. But more worst was that the picture from projector was looped to an camera, but the camera was missing so we had to find that out first, so I lost some time for the workshop. But we still managed to draw with the participants what I wanted to achieve and they have a good foundation to use Inkscape in their work and learn it more. I already prepared a screencast, which you can find here.
Ryan switched more to a presentation style, which I only do on events to impress people what with our free software tools can be done and how easy it can be. But as I expect people on a FOSS event like FUDCon are already open to using our tools and just need some help starting to work with them and the best way to learn it is by doing.
After the lunch we had another Ambassadors BoF for APAC, time to speak more Ambassador stuff. We made during this year some progress in APAC and on FUDCon it was visible a lot of asians in a Fedora Ambassador shirts, but we still have not all equipped with them.
We also made progress in producing F21 media centralized but still there are some problems to solve as the process didnt work well, we had no central production in APAC for F22 but we talked how we shall do it in the future and think found the best solution for it. We also had time to discuss if it would possible to replace the DVD media at least partly with USB sticks. We agreed on doing a research on prices until next FAD APAC end of the year and look there if we do it or not. And yes we found an place where we want to do the next FAD – Singapore so we will work on it during the next months to organize it. So we moved again forward.
Some went out really in the morning to spent some time in Mumbai, but I am to old for touristic pressure even I would like to have seen more from that city, I was in India for FUDCon and not for an touristic tour. So I went out of the hotel at noon and the cab brought me to the airport, where I enjoyed the sun outside and later I spent some time with Danishka Naven and Izhar Firdaus in the airport.
This day I entered a plane in Mumbai short after the day had begun and woke up landing in Zurich. Well I found easily an AC port in this airport and free wifi was also available so I could do some work during the time I had to wait for the next flight, wich was this time just 5 hours later. After this flight I just had a short trip with the train and I arrived right in time for the Design Team meeting.
It was an interesting trip to India seeing how people live there and make new friends, meeting people I worked already with and meeting old friends. I think we moved for the Ambassadors in the APAC region and that means Fedora makes progress in the future in Asia.
This year I was invited once more to be a jury member for the Brazilian Wiki Loves Earth photo competition (thanks Rodrigo!) and it was a pleasure to witness so many wonderful images (yes, I am a bit jealous for my recent inactivity in travel/landscape photography).
Taking a look at their top 10 winners anyone would probably agree this is quality stuff, which will rightfully enrich Wikipedia. Myself, after seeing the larger (around 600 images) selection for the jury, I dare to conclusion a significant increase in quality over the previous year. And I understand the increase was also in quantity, so it looks like a win-win.
Congratulations to the organizers and all the participants!
PS: take a few more moments to admire the winners from the other countries, they are added to the page gradually, as each local jury get its work done. I still ting the Brazilian pictures are among the best so far :)
The dream is real – we are cranking away, actively building this very cool, open source, socially-oriented collaboration platform for Fedora.
We also had another brainstorming session. We ran the Fedora Hubs Hackfest, a prequel to the Fedora Release Engineering FAD a couple of weeks ago.
After a lot of issues with the video, full video of the hackfest is now finally available (the reason for the delay in my posting this ).
<iframe allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/p-KYhPlUUBU" width="560"></iframe>
Let’s talk about what went down during this hackfest and where we are today with Fedora Hubs:
We talked about two elevator pitches for explaining it:
The main philosophy here is to provide a compelling user experience for new users that can potentially enhance the experience for existing contributors but at the very least will never disrupt the current workflow of those existing contributors. Let’s look at this through the example of IRC, which Meghan has mocked up in the form of a web client built into Fedora Hubs aimed at new contributor use:
If you’re an experienced contributor, you’ve probably got an IRC client, and you’re probalby used to using IRC and wouldn’t want to use a web client. IRC, though, is a barrier to new contributors. It’s more technical than the types of chat systems they’re accustomed to. It becomes another hurdle on top of 20 or so other hurdles they have to clear in the process of joining as a contributor – completely unrelated to the actual work they want to do (whatever it is – design, marketing, docs, ambassadors, etc.)
New contributors should be able to interact with the hubs IRC client without having to install anything else or really learn a whole lot about IRC. Existing contributors can opt into using it if they want, or they can simply disable the functionality in the hubs web interface and continue using their IRC clients as they have been.
Next, Paul suggested we go around the room and introduce ourselves for anybody interested in the project (and watching the video.)
We played a game called ‘Pain Gain’ to explore both of the types of users we are targeting: new contributors and experienced Fedora contributors. We started talking about Experienced Contributors. I opened up a shared Inkscape window and made two columns: “pain” and “gain:”
Then we rinsed and repeated for new contributors:
While we discussed the pains/gains, we also came up with a lot of sidebar ideas that we documented in an “Idea Bucket” area in the file:
I was worried that this wouldn’t work well in a video chat context, but I screen-shared my Inkscape window and wrote down suggestions as they were brought up and I think we came out with a useful list of ideas. I was actually surprised at the number of pains and gains on the experienced contributor side: I had assumed new contributors would have way more pains and gains and that the experienced contributors wouldn’t have that many.
Ralph gave us a demo of his Fedora Hubs prototype – first he walked us through how it’s built, then gave the demo.
In the README there is full explanation of how the prototype works so I won’t reiterate everything there. Some points that came up during this part of the meeting:
Next, Meghan walked us through the latest (at the time we have more now!) mockups for Fedora Hubs, many based on suggestions and ideas from our May meetup (the 2nd hubs video chat.)
First, she walked us through her mockups for creating/editing hubs – how a hub admin would be able to modify / set up their hub. (Mockup (download from ‘Raw’ and view in Inkscape to see all screens.)) Things you can modify are the welcome message, colors, what widgets get displayed, the configuration for widgets (e.g. what IRC channel is associated with the hub?), and how to add widgets, among many other things.
Meghan also put together a blog post detailing these mockups.
One point that came up here – a difference is that when users edit their own hubs, they can’t associate an IRC channel with it, but a nick and a network, to enable their profile viewers to pm them.
We talked about hub admins vs FAS group admins. Should they be different or exactly the same? We could make a new role in FAS – “hub admin” – and store it there if it’s another one. Ralph recommended keeping it simple by having FAS group admins and hub admins one and the same. Some groups are more strict about group admins in FAS, some are not. Would there be scenarios where we’d want people to be able to admin the FAS group for a team but not be able to modify the hub layout (or vice-versa?) Maybe nesting the roles – if you’re a FAS admin you can be FAS admin + hub admin, if you’re a hub admin you can just admin the hub but not the FAS group.
Another thing we talked about is theming hubs. Luke mentioned that Reddit allows admins to have free reign in terms of modifying the CSS. Matthew mentioned having a set of backgrounds to choose from, like former Fedora wallpapers. David cautioned that we want to maintain some uniformity across the hubs to help enable new contributors – he gave the example of Facebook, where key navigational elements are not configurable. I suggested maybe they could only tweak certain CSS classes. Any customizations could be stored in the database.
Another point: members vs subscribers on a hub. Subscribers ‘subscribe’ to a hub, members ‘join’ a hub. Subscribing to a hub adds it to your bookmarks in the main horizontal nav bar, and enables certain notifications for that hub to appear in your feed. We talked about different vocabulary for ‘subscribe’ vs ‘join’ – instead of ‘subscribe’ we talking about ‘following’ or ‘starring’ (as in Github) vs joining. (Breaking News Since then Meghan has mocked up the different modes for these buttons and added the “star” concept! See below.)
We had a bit of an extended discussion about a lot of the different ways someone could be affiliated with a team/project that has a hub. Is following/subscribing too non-committal? Should we have a rank system so you could move your way up ranks, or is it a redundant gameification given the badge system we have in place? (Maybe we can assign ranks based on badges earned?) Part of the issue here is for others to identify the authority of the other people they’re interacting with, but another part is for helping people feel more a part of the community and feel like valued members. Subscribing is more like following a news feed, being a member is more being part of the team.
The next set of mockups Meghan went through showed us the workflow of how a user requests membership in a given hub and how the admin receives the membership request and handles it.
We also tangented^Wtalked about the welcome message on hubs and how to dismiss or minimize them. I think we concluded that we would let people collapse them and remove them, and if they remove them we’ll give them a notification that if they want to view them at any time they can click on “Community Rules and Guidelines.”
Similarly, the notification to let the admin know that a user has requested access to something and they dismiss it and want to tend to it later – it will appear in the admin’s personal stream as well for later retrieval.
We talked about how to make action items in a user’s notification feed appear differently than informational notifications; some kind of different visual design for them. One idea that came up was having tabs at the top to filter between types of notifications (action, informational, etc.) I explained how we were thinking about having a contextual filter system in the top right of each ‘card’ or notification to let users show or hide content too. Meghan is working on mockups for this currently.
David had the idea of having action items assigned to people appear as actions within their personal stream… since then I have mocked this up:
Next Meghan walked us through the mockups she worked on for personal profiles / personal streams. One widget she mocked up is for personal library widgets. Other widgets included a personal badges earned display, hubs you’re a member of, IRC private message, a personal profile.
Meghan also talked about privacy with respect to profiles and we had a bit of a discussion about that. Maybe, for example, by default your library could be private, maybe your stream only shows your five most recent notifications and if someone is approved (using a handshake) as a follower of yours they can see the whole stream. Part of this is sort of a bike lock thing…. everything in a user’s profile is broadcast on fedmsg, but having it easily accessible in one place in a nice interface makes it a lot easier (like not having a lock on your bike.) One thing Langdon brought up is that we don’t want to give people a false sense of privacy. So we have to be careful about the messaging we do around it. We thought about whether or not we wanted to offer this intermediate ‘preview’ state for people’s profiles for those viewing them without the handshake. An alternative would be to let the user know who is following them when they first start following them and to maintain a roster of followers so it is clear who is reading their information.
Here’s the blog post Meghan wrote up on the joining hubs and personal profile mockups with each of the mockups and more details.
The main horizontal navbar in Fedora Hubs is basically a bookmarks bar of the hubs you’re most interested in. Meghan walked us through the bookmarks mockups – she also covered these mockups in detail on her bookmarks blog post.
Yes. Yes, it is.
So you may be wondering when this is going to be available. Well, we’re working on it. We could always use more help….
How does one help? Well, let me walk you through where things are taking place, so you can follow along more closely than my lazy blog posts if you so desire:
Well, I’m sure glad you asked. There’s a few ways you can easily dive in and help right now, from development to design to coming up with cool ideas for features / notifications:
There are many other ways to help (ask around in #fedora-hubs to learn more,) but I think these have a pretty low barrier for starting up depending on your skillset and I think they are pretty clearly documented so you can be confident you’re working on tasks that need to get done and aren’t duplicating efforts!
Hope to see you in #fedora-hubs!

Sé que últimamente no he tenido tiempo de publicar en mi blog debido a que estoy super ocupada con el trabajo y la casa (nada de que preocuparse, son buenas noticias), así que mientras trabajaba, decidí simplemente grabar como hago las cosas; creo que a veces hay que dejar de complicarse y solo mostrar las ediciones tal y como son.
En este video podrán ver como se edita una foto de producto si lo único que tienen son hojas blancas y un par de luces. En mi caso, el problema fue que cuando lavé mi fondo blanco para softbox sinplemente murio, se peló (gamuza) y quedó inservible; por lo que tuve que recurrir al plan B y utilizar simples hojas blancas carta.
Espero el tutorial les sea de utilidad, está a velocidad normal y creo que eso les mostrará que es fácil editar. Hay varias formas de hacer lo mismo, sin embargo, es bueno mostrar al menos una de las fáciles. Espero les guste y volver a publicar con mas frecuencia los podcast de tatica!

I have been very occupied in recent weeks with piggies of various shapes, sizes, and missions in life , so I missed posting the last design team meeting update. This is going to be a quick two-for-one with mostly links and not any summary at all. I’ve been trying hard to run the meetings so the auto-generated summaries are more usable, but I am always happy for tips on doing this even better from meetbot pros (like you? ?)
 Expect some explanation in a few weeks, or look for me or Dan Walsh at the Red Hat Summit later this month.
Como dicen por ahí, “Soñar no cuesta nada”; pero a veces parece que por la misma desidia y desinterés general de la población ya ni eso queremos hacer. No soy graduada universitaria, aunque poco me faltó (razones personales), sin embargo, debido a la profesión que decidí seguir siempre me he encontrado inmersa en el mundo académico. En mis primeros años la gente siempre cuestionaba el hecho de que una Bachiller fuera a decirle a un TSU o Ing. como hacer las cosas; sin embargo, con el pasar de los años la gente comprendió que en el mundo tecnológico no todo se aprende en la Universidad, es más, ya es poco lo que se aprende para afrontar el mundo actual.
En mi vida he podido discutir con alumnos como les gustaría ser evaluados, y también he contado con la oportunidad de tener conversatorios con grupos de profesores Universitarios sobre el mismo tema. Uno de mis favoritos sucedió en la Universidad de Yacambú, donde durante casi 12 horas conversamos sobre las nuevas herramientas en el mundo del Diseño Gráfico y como ya este debía ser llamado “Diseño Integral” para que se pudiera formar a un artista más completo.
Este simple comentario genero un interesante debate entre conocidos (y no) que me hizo escribir este artículo para que, quizás entre mis lectores, se genere un debate más amplio y profundo sobre como se esta evaluando el conocimiento en una era donde el conocimiento está en cualquier rincón.
Si en vez de hacer Tesis/Pasantías se mandara a contribuir en proyectos; y se evaluara en base a los commits…
Tal como comentó Juan, habría que crear conceptos y metodologías nuevas donde los estudiantes comprendieran que el Software actual es más que sentarse en una oficina de 8-5 y que trata más sobre las interacciones que podemos tener con personas de todo el mundo, mientras desarrollamos en un ambiente de comunicación instantánea con nuestros colegas. También se tendría que cambiar el concepto erróneo de los círculos académicos actuales donde el profesionalismo es calificado en una escala de Pasantía a Tesis, sin términos medios.
Una de las cosas que me decepcionó durante mi época Universitaria era ir a visitar la biblioteca de la universidad y mirar con decepción como el 80% de las tesis ahí contenidas eran “desarrollos” de páginas web… y digo “desarrollos” porque era solo instalar un Joomla a algún familiar y pasarlo por tesis. ¿Es que ya no nos interesa ser profesionales y lo único que importa es tener un papel que nos enaltezca el ego?.
Miguel es profesor Universitario, muy joven, pero con más experiencia que la mayoría de sus colegas sesentones. Es un joven que, a pesar de tener un trabajo estable en un Start-Up de “puta madre” gasta tiempo y energía en educar a jóvenes como el para que aprendan de su experiencia y se conviertan en profesionales de verdad y no de papel. Miguel comenta que “muchas de las certificaciones y cursos en el área académica no están dirigidos al manejo de herramientas, sino a teorías o conceptos”, lo cual no se ajusta a nuestra era actual donde desarrollamos sin siquiera saberlo.
El principal problema que expone Miguel es que “elaborar una materia no es algo de la noche a la mañana porque se debe desarrollar el programa analítico, buscar los temas, pasar por la burocracia interna de la Universidad, para luego pasar por la burocracia del Ministerio de Educación Superior, eso sin tomar en cuenta que el método de evaluación puede afectar la normativa existente y sería necesario hacer un ajuste de la norma primero”. De cierta forma, pareciese que el sistema Universitario Venezolano no quiere mejorar, ya que eso podría significar mas horas de trabajo, esfuerzo y dedicación. Pero seamos honestos, ¿Quien quiere dedicarse a -entrenar competencia- por un sueldo mínimo?
Luego de preguntar mucho (ya que dicho documento no se encuentra en la web del Ministerio) me facilitaron el documento donde dicta las pautas del Contrato Colectivo del 2013-2014 (el del 2015 aún está en discusión y ya estamos a Mayo).En el tabulador, el mayor sueldo pagado es a los profesores de Dedicación Exclusiva (Entiéndase, no puede trabajar en otro lugar de forma oficial) y fue fijado a partir del 01-01-2014 en 15.297Bs. Recordemos que no se han ajustado los sueldos de los profesores desde dicha fecha. Lo triste del caso es que la gran mayoría de los Profesores no son de dedicación exclusiva, sino Asistentes, Asociados o Auxiliares. Para poner un ejemplo de una persona profesional que conozco, esta es una foto de la constancia de trabajo de el Padre de una amiga que, además de ser un excelente profesional, es un gran catedrático. Me pregunto, ¿Estaría Ud. dispuesto a trabajar durante uno o dos años para desarrollar un nuevo pensum universitario por un sueldo de 5.118Bs?
Me parece que criticar este salario sin que se tenga conocimiento de cuanto gana un Profesor fuera de nuestras fronteras es injusto, por lo que también investigué estas cifras. Un profesor gana en promedio entre 30.000USD y 130.000USD al año; esto nos indica que el salario mínimo mensual de un Educador está en 2.500USD. El profesor mejor pagado de nuestro país gana lo siguiente:
Incluso calculando el salario más alto del tabulador Venezolano a tasa preferencial, no llega ni a la mitad del salario mínimo de un profesor fuera de nuestras fronteras. Con esto, varias preguntas surgen. ¿A que tasa -real- debemos calcular el salario Venezolano? ¿Ud. Profesor Universitario, gana 15.297Bs o está en un escalafón diferente? ¿Luego de conocer estas cifras aún le parece mal que los profesores se rebusquen fuera del ambiente académico?
Es muy fácil decir “Suban los sueldos” o “Trabajen para construir la patria”, pero la verdad (como decimos los de IT cuando nos piden favores -grandes-) es que “nosotros no comemos cables” y los profesores dudo que coman libros. Desde mi punto de vista, las 4 profesiones que deberían estar en el tope del escalafón de sueldos deberían ser los Profesores, los Médicos, los Ing. Agrícolas y los Policías; de esa forma se asegura educación, salud, alimentación y seguridad de alta calidad; sin embargo, no creo que el Gobierno deba asumir absolutamente todo. Si el gobierno no puede pagar un sueldo digno a un profesional, entonces la privatización de servicios (completa o parcial) tiene que ser la solución. Al no ofrecerse sueldos de calidad vemos dos problemáticas, la primera es que los Profesionales que trabajan actualmente en el entorno educativo no se exigen ya que no tienen una motivación salarial (y quien diga que la motivación es mejorar a la patria claramente no tiene familia que mantener), y la segunda problemática es que los graduandos que salen a la calle a buscar trabajo prefieren ser taxistas o ejercer una profesión diferente (o emigrar) en busca de un salario digno que le permita vivir bien. Entonces, ¿Como podemos motivar al profesional para que trabaje -por la patria-?
Otra posible solución es que, ya que los pensum son desarrollados completamente bajo la tutela del Ministerio de Educación, se escoja un grupo de Educadores, se desarrolle un Simposio (Pago, no necesariamente costoso, para ayudar con los costos y generar conciencia de que el conocimiento cuesta) donde durante una semana se debatan estos temas y se hagan propuestas realistas que puedan terminar en un enriquecimiento del compendio de temas que componen las carreras actuales. Ojo, a este Simposio deberían ser invitados no solo los Profesores con larga trayectoria, sino aquellos profesionales que conocen el campo laboral actual y puedan ajustar las viejas enseñanzas a los nuevos requerimientos del entorno productivo Venezolano.
En fin, este artículo es más que todo una reflexión, un análisis y un texto que busca quizás crear un poco de conciencia sobre el tema de la educación Universitaria. Recordemos que en el mundo actual, el mayor cúmulo de conocimiento viene de la información digital que (queramos o no) está ahí. En vez de verla como el enemigo, veamosla como la mejor herramienta que tenemos para mejorar como profesionales y personas.
Let's assume one is a "normal" Firefox user, so based on Windows and with no knowledge about using directly the mirrors (or without intimate knowledge of obscure acronyms). And let's assume the same person wants a FREE web browser, one with no binary blobs, with source available and not blocking the content from its user.
As all the last year in May the event row called Linuxwochen makes it stop in Vienna and I represented Fedora there. This year it was an special event as the Linuxwochen could celebrate their 15th anniversary. And this years event was indeed special, normally this event is compared to others a smaller one as it is from Thursday to Saturday. But this year it was on Thursday already crowded and it looked some more Germans have found their way to Vienna. Also both of the workshop I gave in Vienna was an success and as always filled with people.
Personally I think the exhibition area was this year a nice one to, as Axiom Apertus Beta was presented there, first that this open source camera was presented in public and also Mozilla did show an TV running Firefox (an TV that you can buy, greetings to Ubuntu).
The social event was this year also a nice one, with an special delicious cake. So it was all in all a win to been there personally as for Fedora.
So a couple of weeks ago I mentioned the work robyduck and the Fedora websites team have been putting in on the new websites for Fedora, primarily, spins.fedoraproject.org and labs.fedoraproject.org. Here’s the handy little diagram I put together back then to explain:
This week, robyduck got the new site designs into staging, which means you can try out the new work-in-progress sites right now and provide us your helpful feedback, suggestions (and dare I suggest it) content contributions to make the sites even better.
You may notice as you peruse through the Fedora Labs staging site and the Fedora Spins staging site you’re going to see some bogus stuff. For example, the Robotics Suite page highlights Gimp and Inkscape as included applications. This is because a lot of the content is filler content and we need help from the users of these spins and experts in the individual technologies of what we should be featuring and how we should be describing these spins.
So this is sort of a continuation of our earlier call for help, but this one is really mostly focused on content – we really need your help.
With the staging sites for spins.fedoraproject.org and labs.fedoraproject.org up and running, we are hoping this will make it easier for folks to understand where we are lacking content and could use some help figuring out what to say about each spin. It helps to see it all in context for every spin.
This is a good way to contribute to an open source project if you enjoy writing or documentation – we will handle all the details of getting the content into the pages, you would simply need to email us or blog comment (or whatever is easiest for you) the content you are contributing.
If you are interested in helping us out or even have a particular interest in one of the following spins that is in most need of help, can you get in touch with us and we’ll help you get started?
We’d appreciate any help you can provide. Get in touch in the comments to this post!
This is a very, very quick summary post:
Plea for help here
The websites team and I would like to feature a photo of some real robots that have been programmed and/or built using Fedora as the main banner image for the Fedora Robotics spin – but we don’t know of any specific Fedora robots. We’d even be happy with a picture of a non-Fedora robot at this point.
If you know someone who is knowledgable about robotics and/or Fedora robotics, and who may have a picture they’d be willing to let us use, can you please get in touch?
