#326 Funding request for Hector Alonso Mendez Orantes
Closed: Fixed None Opened 9 years ago by evorock.

Tell us the following:

  • What do you need covered? (Please estimate the costs in USD: hotel $X, travel $Y)

$ 1,400.00 for the trip from El Salvador to Venezuela and back to El Salvador

$ 400 for the hotel, but I accept suggestions for minor expenses, and since I never visited the country of Venezuela and will be a nice experience if allowed.

  • If we cannot provide a full subsidy, will a partial subsidy be helpful? (Yes/No?)


  • If Yes, specify the minimum amount you need covered to facilitate your attendance.

  • What will you accomplish by being at FUDCon? (Please be as specific as possible, since this is the most important factor in granting requests.)

The main thing is to know and learn from all those present at the event, to encourage it in my country, since it is so polarized and technological development is very little, my purpose for going to FUDCon not only learn but also show some of the following electronic project running on the Fedora distribution Split

Hand Robot Arm and wireless connected to the Web with Hardware and Free Software
3D glasses with Hardware and Free Software
Projector Touch with Hardware and Free Software
