Today I attended the Saigon Software Freedom Day 2009 organized by the Saigon Linux User Group at the University of Education in District 5. This is actually my first ever SFD that I attended. It was nice to meet Prof. Nguyen Thai Son again, a long time advocate of open source and Linux in Saigon. I made many valuable contacts from this event today including the Ubuntu-VN team.
Hats off to An Nguyen, the main organizer for the Saigon SFD and leader of the rejuvenated SaigonLUG for doing an excellent job. He did an amazing job and he is only 19 years old! Organizing an event in Saigon is not easy but he pulled it through. He is definitely one of the future “Who’s Who” of the free and open source community in Vietnam. I expect SaigonLUG and future SFDs in Saigon to be highly successful. He even got a potential sponsor for SaigonLUG.
Congrats An! 🙂
