In case you still do not know what BarCamp is..

BarCamp (often: unconference) is a gathering of users with public workshops and lectures, their content and progress are established by participants at the beginning of the meeting and are further developed during the gathering itself. BarCamp serves to share ideas, to discuss, for learning, for development and the product of this work can already partially be seen at the end of the event, by demonstrating concrete results (e.g. joint workshop program).

LUGoNS BarCamp №1

What is BarCamp?

BarCamp (oft uncoference) is gathering of users with public workshops and lectures, their content and progress were developed by participants at the beginning of the meeting and are developed at futher progress. BarCamp used to share ideas, to discuss, for learning and develop and the product of that work can already be seen in part at the end of the event with demonstrating concrete results (eg joint workshop program).


BarCamp name is an allusion to a series of events organized by Tim O’Reily, who called FooCamp. Selected individuals (friends of O’Reilly) would meet for mutal exchange of experience, and would stay and spend the night (camping). Participants in FooCamp could only come at the invitation of the O’Reilly’s. At BarCamp is coming without an invitation, and everyone can participate.

The first BarCamp was held in Palo Alto (CA) of 19-21. August 2005 in the premises of the company Socialtex and was organized in less then a week, from concept to the event. On it was attended by about 200 people. After that’s BarCamp are organized over 350 cities around the world, North America, South America, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, Australia and Asia.

To mark the first anniversary of BarCamp, a BarCampEarth held simultaneosly at several locations in the world from 25-27. August 2006. Marking the second anniversary, BarCampBlock was held in Palo Alto at the original location within a radius of more than three blocks of 18-19. August 2007, and it was attended by over 800 people.

The largest recorded BarCamp took place in February 2011 with over 4700 registered participants in Yangon, the Myanmar (Burma). Previous year (January 2010) BarCamp Yangon attracted over 2700 participants (registered participants).

Dan Slobodnog Softvera


15. septembar proglašen je Danom Slobode tačnije Danom Slobodnog Softvera koji se obeležava širom planete svake godine na razne načine. Ove godine LUGoNS, naše najveće i najstarije udruženje korisnika Slobodnog softvera rešio je da ovaj dan obeleži sa svima Vama koji želite da saznate, naučite i podelite znanje o Slobodi. Bićemo na Miletićevom trgu u prepoznatljivim LUGoNS majicama.
Postojimo preko 10 godina u toku kojih smo strpljivo i uporno svima koje je to zanimalo prenosili svoje znanje i iskustvo o Slobodnom softveru i pomagali u daljem učenju i napredovanju. Danas su to naše kolege koje uspešto rade u IT oblasti i ponosni su korisnici Slobodnog softvera.
Nama je Slobodan softver poznat i rado korišten termin. Za Vas koji možda niste čuli ili bar niste dovoljno čuli, Slobodan softver (engl. Free software) definisan od strane Free Software fondacije, je softver koji se može koristiti, kopirati, menjati, redistribuirati bez ikakvih restrikcija. Potpuno besplatno!
Mislite da je to nemoguće? Slobodan softver ukazuje na SLOBODU korisnika da pokreće, presnimava, distribuira, proučava, menja i poboljšava softver. U svetu postoji veliki broj zajednica i pojedinaca koji se bave Slobodnim softverom tako što uče iz njega i potom novostečena znanja pretaču u njega i daju ga svima ostalima na korišćenje. Zajednice, kao što je LUGoNS naučene da dele, da kroz zajedničko interesovanje stiču kolege i prijatelje. LUGoNS je pre svega jedna obrazovna ustanova, a potom skupina veselih ljudi raspoloženih za dobru zabavu.
Možda vam se čini da ovaj tekst zvuči previše dobro, ako je tako budite slobodni pa proverite šta piše na kao i Ukoliko ste dovoljno smeli dođite na IRC server i potražite sobu #lugons pa nam u lice recite sve što mislite.

Radujemo se da se družimo i srećan nam svima Dan Slobode!

LUGoNS board meeting regarding the BalCCon project

On Friday 6th June 2012. LUGoNS board meeting was held. The main reason was evaluation of previous work on the BalCCon project.

We are very pleased how the project develops. Once again we discussed important issues and only thing left to do is to hand over the project to financial organizations for review.

There is no need to say that party after meeting was awesome:)

Stay tuned.

Sastanak LUGoNS upravnog odbora povodom BalCCon projekta

U petak 06. Jula 2012 godine održan je sastanak upravnog odbora LUGoNSa povodom evaluacije rada na BalCCon projektu. Izloženi su predviđeni i ostvareni ciljevi. Ishod sastanka je zadovoljstvo svih prisutnih na dosada postignutom, kao i realizovanim planovima povodom pisanja samog projekta.

Izvesno je da kongres poprima konkretne smernice i da je plan rada za naredni period usmeren na pisanje projekta i apliciranje kod raznoraznih finansijskih fondova. Rezimirani su dosadašnji potvrđeni saradnici i partneri za koje je osmišljen plan rada u skoroj budućnosti.

Da.. žurka posle sastanka je kao i uvek do sada bila izuzetno uspešna i nazvana je još jednim Warmupom u nizu koji se jednako razvija sa projektom.

Predstavljanje BalCCon-a na DORS/CLUC

U sredu 23. Maja 2012. predstavnici LUGoNS-a održali su petominutnu prezentaciju Balkan Computer Congresa – BalCCon na DORS/CLUC konferenciji u Zagrebu, Hrvatska. Predstavljena je ideja kongresa, plan i program budućih dešavanja.

Izuzetno dobar odziv nas je još jednom uverio u želju i potrebu za jednim ovakvim kongresom. Uspostavljeni su kontakti sa velikim brojem udruga u HR-u, pre svega sa našim dugogodišnjim prijateljima HULK zajednicom.

Dogovoreni su susreti na kojima bismo dogovarali dalje akcije i saradnju sa svim zainteresovanima.

BalCCon at the DORS/CLUC conference

On Wednesday 23rd May 2012 representatives of the LUGoNS were held presentation of Balkan Computer Congress – BalCCon at the DORS/CLUC conference in Zagreb, Croatia. They presented ideas, goals and plan for further actions about BalCCon.

Extremely good response assured us that BalCCon should be happen, and that we are on the right way. We have meet many members of the HR communities, first of all, our friendly community the HULK.

We have arranged gatherings where we will talk about all other actions with all interests.

BalCCon prva internacionalna prezentacija

Eeasterhegg 2012
Mesto održavanja: Bazel, Švajcarska
Kada: 06. –  09. april  2012.

Prvo zvanično internacionalno predstavljanje BalCCon projekta održano je za Uskrs na  Easterhegg-u 2012 u Bazelu. Lightning talk trajao je desetak minuta i držali su ga milobit i zxy na Nemačkom jeziku.

Tokom prezentacije istaknuto je da je BalCCon prvi hakerski kongres za region balkana. Iako postoje interesne grupe, još uvek ne postoji ništa slično.

Kako smo postali jedna sazrela zajednica želimo da omogućimo svima koji nisu u mogućnosti da posećuju takve kongrese u USA ili Evropi, najćešće zbog finansijske situacije, da imaju jedan takav kongres u svom “komšiluku”. Kongres gde će moći da čuju novosti, upoznaju se sa ljudima iz zajednica regiona, razmene iskustva, znanja.

Akcenat je na regionalnom okupljanju zajednica, jačanju tih zajednica.

Kongres je planiran za početak septembra 2013. a mesto održavanja Novi Sad.

Jezik kongresa: Engleski.

Očekujemo okupljanje velikog broja zajednica sa naših prostora a i šire, tako da će druženje biti internacionalno, hakerisanje, igranje, učenje, umrežavanje i naravno žurke.

Naši predavači su veoma zadovoljni odzivom i interesovanjem ljudi za prezentaciju BalCCon-a. Upoznali su dosta novih ljudi i ostvarili mnoge kontakte. Svima se jako dopada naša ideja i svi žele da je podrže.

Prezentaciju možete pogledati ovde.


BalCCon first international presentation

Eeasterhegg 2012
Where: Basel, Switzerland
When: April 06. –  09. 2012

The first international presentation BalCCon projects was held at the Easterhegg 2012 congress in Basel, Switzerland. milobit and zxy were the speakers for lighting talk which lasted 10 minutes. Spoken language: German.

During the presentation few points were taken:

  • BalCCon is a first Balcan hackers congress. Although there is a huge number of people interested in that activity, there is no similar manifestation in our region.
  • As a grown-up community, we are willing to organize this kind of event, to all the people who have no financial support to visit American or European congresses.
  • We see it as a great opportunity to meat people with similar interests, to share knowledge and experience and all of that at our neighborhood.
  • Our goal is to gather and link as many communities as possible to make solid base for further projects.
  • Congress is planned for September 2013.  Location: Novi Sad, official language: English.
  •      We are planning a huge international gathering of communities and free lensers with a lot of opportunities for hacking, gaming, learning, networking and of course partying.
  •     Our speakers are very satisfied with the response and interest in people for a BalCCon presentation. They have met a lot of new people and made a many contacts. Everybody really liked our idea, and they are all willing to support it.
