Who’s here who know where exactly Yogyakarta is? It is hard to simply explains where the city with local community of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) or Linux or Open Source and culture always stays in harmony is pointed. The way people of Indonesia remember, Yogyakarta is one of big cities with huge number of university and college students.

It was about 7 or 8 months ago (consider this was posted in second week of October 2016), when Pak Edwin Zakaria asked to join to handle this event — openSUSE.Asia Summit 2016 — start from how we arranged the proposal to SUSE. It was countless and endless virtual meetings.

This is my first time to become a speaker in international conference, although the presentation in quite simple but it was a great chance for me to speak in such incredible event. Next time, I plan to create and share the material before propose it to the mothers and housewives. Currently, there is 5 core members for this movement, all of them are women.
