[maemo-community] Collaboration between Maemo Community and Universidad Politecnica de Valencia

Hi all,

this morning I had a 2 hours meeting with a teacher (Antonio Cano) of
Universidad Politecnica de Valencia (UPV from now) about Maemo.
I contacted him because another teacher told me he was interested in
working with Maemo platform.

At the end of this meeting we decided two important things:

- We're going to organize a 1-2 hours introductive conference about
Maemo, here at the UPV, since it looks like nobody here (students and
other teachers) know anything about Maemo.

- Antonio Cano is going to ask to the UPV if students can work to a
Maemo project/application for their final project at the UPV

If these two things are done in the right way, I think this could
bring to Maemo community lot of advatanges:

- Spreading of Maemo platform
- More people in the Community
- More applications for Maemo

For the UPV would be a good opportunity to get in touch with this
wonderful, opensource based, technology.

I think I'm going to do the introductive conference here at UPV and
Antonio will talk about end of the PhD projects opportunity, but... I
really need your help :)

Any suggestion, tips, help ecc... is welcome. I don't know how to
manage a similar thing. Well... actually I know what to do and how,
but if you (the Community) or Nokia have something to tell me, about
what/how should I manage this opportunity, please say it now. I'm not
asking only slides or any material you could have, but in particular
I'm looking for ideas.

I want to be sure that when people will go out from the conference
room will have this in mind: wow! it's a wonderful platform! I want to
develop something for Maemo!

Can you understand my point?

I'll be at Maemo Summit, so we'll have the possibility to talk
directly about this.

I hope to get some feedback as soon as possible :)
