My blog turned 2 years today!

My blog turned 2 years today!

I’m Rep of the month!

I’m proud that I have been selected as Mozilla Rep of the month. This is a great recognition for all my efforts I have put through the years. 

"Think globally act locally" this is a great example of what Mozilla is doing. Community is the one that make things happen. My home town is Črnomelj.

There is around 14,750 people living in Municipality Črnomelj. With around 1,076 being unemployed (stats).

Fell free to visit my home town! 

My point is that it doesn’t matter if your from small town or big town all that matter is that you are pursuing your goals. I have won many recognitions for my work globally and nationally but never any local recognitions :-) 

Slovenia only has three Mozilla Reps. Matjaž was also Rep of the month in March 2012. This shows that we have a great community of passionate people. I’m pretty sure you can expect even more great things from our community in the near future!

Thanks again!

Mozilla Slovenia Meeting 2014

Most of Mozilla Slovenia members were on Open Way event so we decided to stay in Novo mesto where we have Mozilla Space and work on our tasks that were set before the meeting.

This event was more workshop than regular meeting. We were so productive that we forgot to take photos! :)

To sum it up:

- Firefox Party was a big success, people were talking about Mozilla, Firefox and Firefox OS.

- During the meetup we worked on Social media material - and passed 800 likes on FB.

- We localized half of Firefox OS 1.4 apps.

- We updated Mozilla Slovenia website with fresh new content and added some useful information.

I’m happy that Novo mesto is becoming our main meeting point. We have great office, where we can relax and also work hard in pleasant environment.

Till next time …

Open Way conference attracts bumper crowd!

After some rest I’m happy to inform you that Open Way, the successor of Day of Open Source was awesome. All free tickets were sold few days before the event.

More than 130 visitors had a chance to listen to Open Source ideas worth spreading through all day on 25th of April 2014.

Think open was our motto. The whole idea of Open Way was a little controversial. The logo of the new re-branded event is a key. Key represents (vendor) lock-in, walled gardens, closed silos, etc. You can also see the initials “O” and “W” in the key. The most controversial was our slogan, “Because Everyone is Smarter Than You”.  It represents power of the crowd, people. Community of people is smarter than individual.

When I first started Open Source conference in Novo mesto, back in 2011, I could only wish to attract so much people that are interested in Open Source. I’m happy that every year there is more and more visitors.

The main topics this year were Open Source 3D printing, Firefox OS, Bitcoin, how to make money with Open Source, how to collaborate successfully and others.

Blender Bootcamp and Free Your Android! Workshops were full in just a few days after we announced the event.

Open Source movement is Novo mesto is becoming one of the strongest in Slovenia. We have organizations like StartUP Novo mesto and Mozilla Slovenia which are pushing this movement to a new level.

As we grow bigger the expenses also rise. So I want to thanks all volunteers, sponsors and speakers for their help.

Metrics:

- We were happy with the number of visitors - Success!

- A lot of media hype about the event - Success!

- Mozilla was once again one of the main topics among visitors - Success!

- Mozilla Slovenia members showed the support and helped with the event - Success!

See you next year!

Till next time …

New way, Open Way

I realized I haven’t blogged in a long time. I’m busy running multiple projects.

Today I’m happy to announce that on 25th of April 2014 I’ll again organize Day of Open Source in Slovenia, Novo mesto.

First Day of Open Source was organized in 2011. Each year the event was bigger and better in many ways. This year the concept of event is a little bit different.

Say hello to Open Way! The successor of Day of Open Source in new and improved concept. Together with my team we are aiming to create fun and exciting experience for all visitors.

Don’t forget to save the date and visit us in Novo mesto!

Till next time,

Cheers, Nino Vranešič
