Testathon will take place on Oct 1st!

The first ever testathon in Beirut is taking place on Oct 1st. It will be lead by a team from Facebook who will fly in from the United States for the event. According to material found online about previous testathons held globally, they seem to be super fun events!!

Not only do you get to test new releases with like minded people, but there are even prizes to be won for the best testers 🙂

If you have what it takes to find the most hidden and unexpected of bugs then head over to the application form and fill it out to become a bug tester on Oct 1st. It’s totally free to participate.

Beirut Open Source Society’s first meetup!

The Beirut Open Source Society’s first meetup blessed by Lea, Ghassan, Mohamad and Bashir.

It was Friday the 13th on a dark and wintry January night when the inaugural meetup of Beirut’s Open Source Society took place. Four intrepid pioneers walked between rain drops and dodged the odd flash of lighting or two to talk about their experiences with Linux, why they love it so much, and what they hope to give and get out of the Beirut Open Source Society.. apart from obviously drinks 🙂

We can be reached so far at:

Looking forward to meeting the other Linux and Open Source users in Lebanon.. either through the above listed means or in future meetups (to be announced). There’s much to do..
