Hi folks!!!

As I said before, in my previous post about QA, Thunderbird and Mozilla based in the slides of Ludovic Hirlimann, when I had available the video that my university recorded about that session I would update the post, so here we are again.

This update has been done instead after to watch completely the video, litle by litle every time I thought Ludovic told something more important than the rest, or something curious for me, or something that I thought was relevant.

Hi all!!!

Yesterday I began a new subject in my M.Sc. on Libre Software, and we had a talk presented by Eduardo Romero Moreno, who talked us about the migration to Libre Software in the Zaragoza city council, the talk was very interesting and entertaining, and as activity of our subject here I write about this talk, the main topics, data, advantages and disadvantages of the migration, etc.

This notes were taken in real time in my class, the lecturer talked in spanish and I translated and wrote at the same time, so maybe you can find a few mistakes 😉

Also I attach a pdf (created and formatted using LaTeX) if you prefer this format.
