I would like to renew my membership. Following I describe some activities that I have been doing in the last time:
I am an academic at the University of Talca (Chile) for many years and I teach programming in the School of Bioinformatics Engineering. In these courses, we use free software and particularly the GNOME environment. (https://icb.utalca.cl/)
From time to time we do workshops on different topics related to free software, for example, Development of application with GTK+, Project Management with Git and GitLab, among others.
Past year we organized the congress "UbuCon Latinoamérica 2019" here in Chile, where in addition to promoting the Ubuntu project, we promoted the use of GNOME as a desktop environment and their applications. (https://la.ubucon.org/).
Now, with some students and academics, we are developing an application to allows people with accessibility problems to interact with the computer, similar to Mousetrap but that today don't have support. (https://gitlab.com/amvaldesj/handibox)
