FOSScamp Syros 2017

FOSScamp Day 5

As usual, after having breakfast, we all meet at the cafeteria.
Today, we keep translating the Debian installer (and some packages) and Anxhelo Lushka showed us how to contribute with LibreOffice translation.

We then wen to visit the Industrial Museum of Ermoupoli.
Quite interesting and really impressed by all the things done, for instance, Syros produced the Enfield 8000, an electrical car from 1973 (

Lunch, back to the cafeteria and back to work.

Lior is the first one to leave, the end of FOSSCamp 2017 is unfortunately near …

Great achievement, we succeeded to translate 99% of the Debian installer into Albanian language ; work is almost complete :

Thanks again for the huge help provided by Lior Kaplan.

State of The Map 2017

State of the Map 2017 in Aizuwakamatsu, Japan.

State of the Map is the annual event for all mappers and OpenStreetMap users. The event will last three days in the central Japan with talks, discussions, workshops, code and documentation sprints all around the free and open map of the world.

I am really excited this year to participate to State of the Map 2017 and hold a presentation about Community building, attend other presentations and workshops related to OpenStreetMap projects, and learn more about everything related to it, and meet members from other countries communities. This will be, as far as I know, the first presence of Albanian based OSM contributors to a SoTM edition. I will participate along with my fellow friend and OSM contributor Sidorela Uku.
During the next days I’ll be updating this post with photos and videos from the event.

I will also update regularly my twitter account.
