FOSS communities in Latam are taking an important role as drivers towards the use, adoption, development and contribution to technological solutions such as Linux, Gnome, LibreOffice, OpenStreetMaps, KDE and many more.

It is important to prioritize both the development of new technological innovation projects under a philosophy of open collaboration and to strengthen by contributing to the many that are being executed with a high scale of usability.

As part of the Model, the proposal is to take advantage of activities such as the following:

  • Structure an agenda of Meetups among the community.

  • Identify some Gnome projects that can be strengthened by the talent of our community in Latam.

  • Consolidate specialized development teams around Gnome solutions.

  • Maintain the effort of the Gnome Latam Local Team.

  • The above allows the maturity of contributors and developers in FOSS projects and especially around Gnome projects.
