Public Power and Popular Power will meet to discuss the new development path of the Canaima GNU / Linux and Canaima Educativo projects for next year 2015

This Tuesday 2, Wednesday 3 and Thursday 4 of December, the Canaima Conference and the 1st Canaima Educative Technical Meeting will be held at the Fundación Instituto de Estudios Avanzados (Idea) with the participation of activists from the National Free Software Community, the team of technicians and developers from the National Center for Information Technology (CNTI), university students, IT directors of the Public Administration (AP), as well as public servants.

“What is sought with the Canaima Conference is to generate a catalog of needs raised by the end users of the AP associated with the Canaima GNU / Linux operating system and that, based on the information collected, a work map is designed that allows counting on in 2015 with a new version of Canaima GNU / Linux designed especially for users of the AP ”, explained Jhon Monrroy, president of the CNTI, an entity attached to the Ministry of Popular Power for University Education, Science and Technology (Mppeuct).

The Canaima GNU / Linux meta-distribution was created – at the instructions of the former president of Venezuela, Supreme Commander Hugo Chávez Frías – with the intention of promoting the technological updating of the institutions of the Venezuelan State and promoting the migration from proprietary systems to free computer systems that would support the technological independence of the Nation.

The Canaima Conference and the 1st Canaima Educational Technical Meeting are organized by the Bolivarian Government of Venezuela, through the Mppeuct, particularly through the CNTI. The event is sponsored by the Telecommunications Research and Development Fund (Fidetel), the Compañía Anónima Nacional Telefonos de Venezuela (Cantv) and the Fundación Instituto de Estudios Avanzados.
