All open source communities ambassadors will organize their groups looking to keep their members up to date with knowledge.
Some CAPATEC (Cámara Panameña de Tecnología) members, like ELCONIX, has showed higher intention to support some Open Source communities sponsoring education, certification, and some events like FLISoL and Freedom Software Day.
Mirtha Rodriguez, UIP, Systems Engineering Faculty Dean, did give us a great liaison and invited us to keep working with their students at UIP for future events.
