    June 18, 2018 — As a long time Drupal community member, I decided to participate in other free software communities to share my experiences and learn from theirs.

    * What I have learned about community building and event organization.
    * How my background as speaker, code contributor, and mentor in Drupal has been useful in my volunteering efforts.
    * The benefits of the two communities working together to promote the adoption of free software in the country.
