Dear everyone,

We are a group of young tech activists from Prishtina, Kosovo - Europe’s newest country.
During the past year we’ve been working on creating an experimentation, coworking space - a hackerspace in Prishtina. Struggling to find funds locally and self sustain the space, we’ve joined Kickstarter to get international help from you all.

We wouldn’t like to bother you with a long description, but as mentioned on the campaign video, Kickstarter community and YOU are our only way out to make this happen!

Please see our kickstarter campaign.

We promise you’ll enjoy the video explaining our initiative and our past work and activities.

Please help us by spreading the word out and/or donating to our campaign!

Story

Free Libre and Open Source Software activist.
Introduction

I’m Altin Ukshini, a FLOSS (Free Libre and Open Source Software) and Open Knowledge activist since 2009.
I have been working hard last years on promoting, developing and translating Free and Open Source Software, alone and through FLOSSK. Basically, in general promoting FLOSS (Free Libre and Open Source Software) in my country Kosovo.

I am one of the organizers of Software Freedom Kosova the biggest annual F/LOSS Conference in Balkans and other related (FLOSS tech) activities that happened since 2009 including Richard Stallman’s lecture in Prishtina.

As a very active community guy, I’ve passionately co-founded and led tech projects and events in Kosovo and the US. I’ve been part of Louisville’s LVL1 hackerspace in Kentucky, United States of America for a year (while I was an exchange student), received the “Honorary Citizen of Louisville” award by the city Mayor and during my stay I founded a non-profit and the first conference about Open Source Software in Kentucky called MOSSCon (Midwest Open Source Software Conference).

I’m the the President of the Board at FLOSSK and MOSSCon, Prishtina Hackerspace co-founder, board member at STIKK (Kosovo Association of Information and Communication Technology) and a Mozilla representative from Kosovo.

I used to work at IPKO Foundation where I organized and lead some of the foundation’s projects, as well as managed the tech part of them, but currently I work at IPKO Telecom in Prishtina as a Linux System administrator

I’m a GNU project supporter, and love contributing to Wikipedia and Open Street Map.
