Finally we could do it, Free and Open Source Software FOSS 09 Workshop in Damascus, Syria was our first event in our new young community ‘iCommunity’ for the software professionals community in Damascus and Syria in general.

A great attendance was with us over the workshop three days, it was really a pleasure to meet great people there like Eng.Khaled al-shamaa, Eng.Ahmad Othman, and Dr.Hani safadi

We could promote FOSS well, and we could motivate some people to move to FOSS. 

It was a good idea to distribute the free DVDs set, Ubuntu 8.10 DVD + the Open DVD which consists of a Debian software repository and a set of helpful foss for windows.
