WARNING! Starting on July 30th, 2015, we have started to rebuild from scratch the whole website of the Free Technology Academy, to make it much easier to maintain and use than it was before. We haven't finished yet! Apart from looks and layout, which may change several times before settling down, it IS very likely that there are broken links here and there, or URLs that will stop work in a few days.

Free Technology Academy courseware used in Vietnam
December 15th, 2014: it is with great pleasure that we share the news from Mr Luu Van Hau, a member of the Vietnam Free and Open Source Software Association: Mr. Le Trung Nghia a prominent member of the Vietnamese Free/Open Source Software community has translated in Vietnamese, and made available online, several textbooks of the Free Technology Academy:
- (GNU/Linux) GNU/Linux cơ bản, Joaquín López Sánchez-Montañés, Sofia Belles Ramos, Roger Baig Viñas, Francesc Aulí Llinàs và những người điều phối: Jordi Serra i Ruiz, David Megías Jiménez và Jordi Mas; Viện Hàn lâm Công nghệ Mở - FTA, 2008; 232 trang
- (Advanced GNU/Linux) Quản trị cao cấp GNU/Linux, Remo Suppi Boldrito và người điều phối Josep Jorba Esteve; Viện Hàn lâm Công nghệ Mở - FTA, 2009; 471 trang
- (Introduction to Free Sofware) Giới thiệu phần mềm tự do, Jesús M. González-Barahona, Joaquín Seoane Pascual, Gregorio Robles và những người điều phối: Jordi Mas Hernández và David Megías Jiménez; Viện Hàn lâm Công nghệ Mở - FTA, 2009; Giấy phép in của Nhà xuất bản Thông tin và Truyền thông, 2010; 301 trang
Unfortunately, we can't read these translations by ourselves, but are very happy that our textbooks are available to the Free Software students and professionals of Vietnam. We hope they will find them useful and invite them to let us know what they think of them. It would be great if FTA could partner with local institutions and Free Software advocates to spread knowledge of "Free as in Freedom" technologies, not just software! Do you know of translations of FTA Courseware in other languages? Please let us know!
