CLSxItaly: Third Edition

Good morning folks,

This last weekend, on Saturday 6th May at the Talent Garden Milano Calabiana, I had the opportunity to have a speech at the Community Leadership Summit “X” Italy (CLSxItaly) at Milan. For who don’t know yet this summit, this offer the opportunity to meet and know passionate, curious, organizer and leader of some realty who make activity and/or project through communities not only no-profit related, and, wants to share their experiences. Personally and by me, this type of events, permits an awesome debate between the different interpretation of the “community” concept, and, how it is apply in the disparate context, moreover, permits to meet and connect the different realty and their communities in a free and inclusive way.

Concerning my talk (Talk Link), I put there a little focus about the goals of our national Mozilla community (Mozilla Italia), and, talk deepened about the Open Leadership Training Program, promoted by Mozilla Foundation. It have the goal to shape the Leader of tomorrow, giving the basis and some helpful instruments to lead open source projects and communities connected.

The people attended and involved in the event was more then fifteen the people. The Agenda was divided in two principal moments (Link Agenda). The morning was dedicated at the talks. In total the talks was six  comprehensive mine. In the evening, was plan an “un-conference” where all the people proposed some topics for debate and discuss. During the break and the final aperitif, it was possible, moreover, to share some point of view and opinions in all the topics touched during the talks and the un-conference.

In the next days will be publish in the official website of the summit all the talks and keynote of the different sessions made by the un-conference. I’m extremely happy of this experience. Know other people who have similar passion of mine, who persecute their goals with a community, and, available to share their experience with the other in a spontaneous, inclusive, free and open way it was really really fantastic for me.

The last but not the least element of my Milanese weekend is my meeting with some of Mozilla Italia volunteer who lives and work in the North side of the Italy.  Have this great moment to meet in person, share our opinions, point of view and ideas about  our community was awesome and it make this last weekend more special for me.

I want to say Thanks at Mozilla to given me this opportunity, all staff of CLSxItaly to involve me in this summit and all the Mozilla Italia and Mozilla volunteers that spent with me a great half day.

Thanks at all!!!

 

 

Annunci

CLSxItaly: Terza edizione

Buongiorno popolo di Internet,

Questo fine settimana, nella giornata di Sabato 6 Maggio al Talent Garden Milano Calabiana, ho avuto l’opportunità di presentare un talk al Community Leadership Summit “X” Italy (CLSxItaly) a Milano. Per chi non conoscesse questa manifestazione, essa offre l’opportunità di poter incontrare e conoscere appasionati, curiosi, organizzatori e leader di alcune realtà, attive non solo nel no-profit, che realizzano attività e/o progetti attraverso le community e vogliono condividere le loro esperienze. Personalmente, secondo me questa tipologia di eventi, permette un interessantissimo confronto tra le varie interpretazioni del concetto di community e di come esso venga applicato nei più disparati contesti, inoltre, permette la connessione e l’incontro delle realtà coinvolte e delle loro community in manierà libera ed inclusiva.

Per quanto riguarda il mio talk (Link Talk), ho voluto fare un piccolo focus sugli obiettivi della nostra comunità Italiana di Mozilla (Mozilla Italia) e  parlare in modo più approfondito del programma Open Leadership Training promosso dalla Mozilla Foundation, che ha l’obiettivo di formare i Leader di domani, offrendo le basi e alcuni strumenti utili alla gestione di progetti nel open source e le community ad essi associate.

 

Sono state più o meno una cinquantina le persone presenti e che sono intervenute durante la manifestazione. Il programma si è suddiviso in due momenti principali (Link Agenda). La mattina è stata dedicata ai talk. In totale compreso il mio, i talk presentati sono stati sei. La sera, invece, è stata organizzata una unconference dove chiunque ha proposto degli argomenti di dibattito e di confronto. Durante le pause e l’aperitivo finale è stato possibile, inoltre, scambiarsi punti di vista e opinioni sugli argomenti esposti durante i talk e la unconference.

Nei prossimi giorni verranno pubblicati sul sito ufficiale del summit le registrazione dei talk e le note delle varie sessioni presentate durante la unconference. Sono estremamente contento di questa esperienza. Conoscere altre persone che hanno passioni simili alle mie, che portano avanti degli obiettivi attraverso delle community e sono pronte a condividere le loro esperienze con gli altri in maniera spontanea, inclusiva, libera e aperta è per me veramente fantastico.

Ultimo elemento ma non ultimo, che ha caratterizzato questo weekend Milanese è stato l’incontro con alcuni volontari di Mozilla Italia che risiedono nel Nord Italia. Poterci incontrare di persona, scambiarci nostre opinioni, punti di vista e idee per la nostra community ha coronato e ha reso ancora più speciale questo weekend. 

Voglio ringraziare Mozilla per avermi dato questa opportunità, tutto lo staff del CLSxItaly per avermi coinvolto in questo summit e tutti i volontari di Mozilla Italia e Mozilla che hanno voluto spendere con me una mezza giornata.

Grazie a tutti!!!!

 

FOSDEM 2017: I’m there

Hello Guys,

20170205_162249I’m very happy to share with all of you my experience at the FOSDEM! This year was the first time for me here! That’s amazing!!!  Here you could find, talk and know some and some other volunteers from the most important open source communities. It’s only that? Absolutely not! The FOSDEM represent an important event where all the communities could share their works, technologies and their innovative ideas. For two days a University Campus be an open source temple with some booths where you can ask and find some amazing news a information, specific room where some amazing volunteer share their skills and project with specific talks, and last but not the least, good beers and food .

20170203_223837The FOSDEM is placed at the ULB on Brussels, Belgium. All start with the Beer event on Friday Night at Delirium Tremens. Some people with great beer!!! Amazing!!! On Saturday all people arrive at the ULB and the show could start. The location isn’t far away from the center of Brussels (approx. 20 minutes using the 71 Bus).

 

I’m been involved in the Booth of my lovely Mozilla community. For me stay there it was fantastic. For some fact. The first was that I can help my community to spread the voice in a Open, Inclusive and Free Web for everyone in the world, second, I had the opportunity to discuss with some people 20170204_172500over the Europe about our amazing community. In mozilla I have the opportunity to been involved in different role in the Mozilla communities, so, this is a great and important possibility for me to figure out how I can help the other in our European contest and in my region. On the booth, where I mainly involved, I talk a lot of all the Mozilla programs (especially Mozilla Campus Club Program & Mozilla Club) and  about the new technologies 20170205_120946and languages promoted by Mozilla (especially about Rust & the Virtual Reality on the Web using A-Frame). In all these two days I think to have been the opportunity to talk with at least one hundred of peoples about all these topics and moreover about the Nightly version of Firefox and more, and more other topics 🙂 For me this experience is awesome!!!
