Open Source Conference Albania - CFP is open

Hello,

This is Silva, one of the organizers of Open Source Conference Albania. As we were very happy to have Fedora as a supporter of the conference, we would also like to invite Fedora contributors to host a talk and/or workshop at OSCAL.

About:
OSCAL (Open Source Conference Albania) is the first annual conference in Albania organized to promote software freedom, open source software, free culture and open knowledge. The Conference will gather free libre open source technology users, developers, academics, governmental agencies and people who share the idea that software should be free and open for the local community and governments to develop and customize to its needs; that knowledge is a communal property and free and open to everyone.

The 6th edition of Open Source Conference Albania (OSCAL) is taking place in Tirana city on 18th & 19th of May 2019.

For the Fedora contributors who would like to attend OSCAL, we have prepared a list of topics which we would love to have at our conference. We always value Fedora presence at OSCAL. This is a list of topics we are interested to have, but for those who might have another topic you want to talk about, do not feel limited to apply.
