Fedora was the very first introduced to Cambodia during the FOSSASIA 2014 by Tuanta from Vietname and Gnokii from Germany. Two Cambodians became an official Fedora Ambassador in the mid of March 2014.
Not for too long, We had been organized our first Fedora event by our own at the Open House Phnom Penh (DevInnoExpo) organized by the Development Innovations on March 11, 2014. There were about 400 participants in various sectors such as students, NGOs, Business and Government.
Before the official launch in about 10 minutes, we received special guests–the minister of Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport, H.E. DR. HANG CHUON NARON, and Chief of Party of Development Innovations, Ms. Greta Greathouse at our booth.
We were provided a booth with one LCD Monitor at no charge to do the first demo for our guests to test and kickoff with Fedora user interactions. It was a little bit strange for them, since Fedora is the new OS to them. Most Cambodian people are familiar with Windows and Mac OS, therefore they are so interested in Fedora, which we had about 50 people signed up with our newsletter. They wish to hear what’s new about Fedora.
We had been delivered more than 100 stickers, brochures and buttons to group and individual guests, who have visited our booth. There were 15 DVDs of Fedora 20 to our guests those tent to know more about Fedora just for testing the Fedora OS.
As promised with our Fedora users, we will conduct a series of training about Fedora to our users in Cambodia as soon as possible.
