Dear OCC fellows this time I'm going relate one of my best experience as Campus Crew member and in my life.
On from 18 to 24 July one of the biggest events about technology in the world took place in México, it is Campus Party and that is a brief introduction about it:
Campus Party is recognized as the largest formative technology event, creativity, digital culture and entertainment network in the world. This annual event started in Spain in 1997 and since 2009 takes place in Mexico, meets for one week thousands of participants with their computers from all over Mexico and other nations to share concerns, exchange experiences, to attend conferences, workshops, competitions and exhibitions related to computers, internet, communications and new technologies.
And for the third edition of this event Opera Software participated as a sponsor, supporting the distribution of promotional items, a really big stand and the conference of our charismatic Chief Standards Officer Charles McCathieNevile
During the event there were many conferences, workshops, contests, games and activities related to the adoption of technology.
Attended by professionals from all areas of technology, not only in Mexico if not worldwide. For example we were fortunate with the presence of the father of the Web Tim Berners Lee (friend indeed Chaals ).
My participation in this event I owe to Opera, because I was invited to join his team during the time that remained for the Opera stand.
So I supported in everything possible to the Opera team, for example explaining how to use Opera to the people who came to ask, I could show people how to use it on different platforms such as smartphones, tablets and computers.I also helped to Zoe at conducting competitions/challenges for the attendees had the chance to win cool Opera stuff and of course I went with the mission to make known Opera Education and Opera Campus Crew .
I attended all kinds of people, from children, youth, adults, seniors to people with disabilities. This really motivated me to continue learning more about Opera and get closer to users
During the five days I supported the staff was fortunate that I was invited to dinner with them, so you'll enjoy the days together, it was quite an experience.I had never eaten so much in my life!
