The project

Why this project?
The idea for this project came from the finding of lack of audiovisual material like this in Catalan, although there were a large number in the network in Castilian. From Blendercat already a couple of years to assemble the web blendercat.org to help cover the lack of knowledge of Blender associative level ii now we want to go a step further with this series of capsules reference to encompass all aspects of free software. Thus, then, we can contribute to the philosophy of free software

WHY THE FREE SOFTWARE SERIES TITLE?
The title of the idea that the Internet search about free software is dispersed, in English and Castilian majority and when you find nothing in Catalan is strictly on Linux. We can say, then, that using the same search terms, with the tail in the series, we are implying that it is a program and tv, type reports little about everything that encompasses the p.lliure.

CONTENT WILL DO?
The idea is 20 chapters of 5 minutes per season.
The contents will suggest various programs and OS to create a set of guidelines for free software that reflects the professional and amateur use of this software.
Each chapter consists of a brief description of two or three programs explaining their use and an interview to a user on a fourth program that may or may not have mentioned before. At the end of the program, a moment’s thought about a slogan or phrase of some guru of free software movement.

€ 75 PER CHAPTER ONLY?
Yes, we have calculated that between travel, subsistence and miscellaneous expenses could get to do one chapter for 75 euros. 75 x20u = a € 1500 we requested for the project.
In those we spend?: Basically in shifts; Petrol (40 €) and peage (9 €). Diets (24 €, 8 € menu x 3 people, 2 of the team and the interviewee.) Oh, and coffee (2 €), if not, no rendimos.TOTAL € 75.

STUDENTS OR self?
To access a job you must present your qualifications. Regarding computer skills are ICT. Which today can get you the certificate if you want a diploma.

Training in information technology and communication is one of the highest priorities of this century. In recent years gradually increased the number of courses offered, the volume of registrations is increasing in each center and, according to the evolution of new technologies, adding new monographs and workshops taught anywhere.

But for the free software today is still not completely solved. For this reason and for the record that there are classes of programs, eg 3D, licensed but are too costly (an average of € 8,000 per course) we present the Blender community in Catalonia or what is the Blendercat same. Thanks to the meetings of the association, give courses and workshops at low cost with the intention of offering quality and expertise in teaching these tools.

BLENDERCAT but has been surpassed their expectations and the philosophy of free software, it is also open to all kinds of software and not exclusively the Blender, although we specialize.

The creation of a number of free software is one of these examples are not exclusive.
