GNU/Linux pentru DJ – despre muzică şi filme

Una dintre ideile preconcepute care circulă despre GNU/Linux este aceea că el ar fi nepotrivit pentru pasionaţii de multimedia. Spun asta fanii sistemelor de operare „concurente”, derutaţi de faptul că nu găsesc aici uneltele audio-video cu care fuseseră obişnuiţi. În cele ce urmează, voi încerca să vă arăt că puteţi fi relaxaţi, fiindcă colecţia Dvs. de filme preferate, muzică MP3, CD-uri audio şi DVD-uri este mai accesibilă şi mai în siguranţă ca niciodată.

An Invitation to “Informatica la Castel”, 2012 Edition - a Romanian Free Software Summer School

I am pleased to announce that, in 2012, the Romanian annual event of “Informatica la Castel” (“Informatics at the Castle”) will be held in August 27th - September 1st. Both international and Romanian speakers and guests are kindly invited to submit their registration for participation.

Already a tradition in the Romanian IT landscape, the event is organized and kindly hosted by the Universitatea de Vest “Vasile Goldiș” (The “Vasile Goldiș” West University) of Arad and ArLUG, the local Linux User Group.

For the summer school, the main focus is to bring together the various Romanian and international GNU/Linux communities (computer geeks and programmers), as well as wannabe GNU/Linux users, newcomers, students, teachers, public clerks, Romanian officials, lawyers, doctors, etc. Every person that uses a computer in day-to-day life (for professional or personal matters) is invited to consider the benefits of Free Software, to improve his/hers computer skills, to learn from more experienced users and to make new friends, by meeting interesting and enthusiastic people in a friendly environment. Last but not least, teachers are encouraged to use more Free Software in class, especially as Virtual Learning Environments – such as Moodle platform, kindly offered to the Romanian schools (and supported locally) by Moodle Romania.

One of the keys of success for the school is the natural landscape of the place where the proceedings are held. Very close from the Hungarian border, the 18th century Cernovici Castle of Macea, as well as the surrounding „Pavel Covaci” Botanical Garden offer a relaxing, student camp-like environment, with Transylvanian local traditions, very pleasant for fine academic talks, long walks and making new friends.

You may see other informations, including a few pictures from the 2011 edition, here.

We are anxious to meet you, both Linux beginners or computer gurus !
