tatica1 on irc.freenode.net
My name is Elvira Martínez, I'm from Cali, Colombia but living at Honduras right now. I'm using Ubuntu since 04/2008 and I signed the code of conduct on 2008/10/01. I belong to the Ubuntu-hn team and I would like to make this community grow together. I rebooted Ubuntu Honduras community with my friend Fabián Rodríguez support who convinced me and made me believe that this was possible. Here is my Ubuntu story.

My participation in Ubuntu
Ubuntu Honduras Loco Team
Members of the team in San Pedro Sula, we have been organizing some activities such as Pizza Bash and Coffee Bash this year, with the aim of gathering more people wanting to support the team and its activities. I have participated in some IRC meetings for the purpose of organizing with the team some the activities we have planned.

I have worked in the the Linux Tour project coordinating it with two of other members of Ubuntu Honduras Team, Diego Turcios and Luis Araya. Some friends from Nicaragua helped us in this project that was a success, Norman García (Ubuntu Nicaragua) and Neville Cross (GNU/Linux Nicaragua community. This activity was realized at UNITEC University, march 20, 2009.
I helped Diego Turcios with the coordination of Flisol 2009 proyect, realized at the Universidad Pedagógica Nacional Francisco Morazán, April 25, 2009.
Ubuntu Tour Tridentino Institute
We did another presentation about Ubuntu to the 2nd grade students of Tridentino Institute in San Pedro Sula. It was nice to let them know about Ubuntu and Free Software and see how interested they were.
Ubuntu Global Jam 2009

I am the first one. Tatica1 is a great person, she rocks. She was the person who gave life to the HondurasTeam. With her help, we have organized events here in Honduras. She is a nice lady. Always available at IRC, trying to help others, and if she can't she gets you someone to help you. Tatica1 may have trouble sometimes on ubuntu, but she always go ahead and solve her problems. She is a great example here in Honduras. Go tatica1. DiegoTc
Tatica1's job is really great, I am completely convinced that the Ubuntu community is so accessible and so comfortable thanks to people like her with her willingness to always learn new things and always help as much as possible.
