Last weekend we hold a conference in the nice town of Fermo, called Ubuntu@Fermo. Andrea Colangelo organized everything in every little detail and the weekend was just perfect.

The event location was a conference center held by the municipality of Fermo and made into a┬á´╗┐deconsecrated church, really an amazing venue:

During the evening we spoke about the Ubuntu project and how to partecipate, the Ubuntu Women project, the o´╗┐pportunistic development in Ubuntu and the great Andrea Colangelo’s Talk “Debunking Ubuntu myths”.

Thanks to Canonical for the nice gift they sent just in time for the conference and for the Conference Pack:

Really a great conference!
