Ada from "Ada & Zangemann"

My version of the character Ada from "Ada & Zangemann", a Creative Commons license (BY-SA) book for children and a funny story about Free/Libre and Open-Source. It's written by Matthias Kirschner and illustrated by Sandra Brandstätter. It is great to see new characters in the Free Culture, especially because Ada is so cool.

You can find it printed in English, French, German, Italian → https://fsfe.org/activities/ada-zangemann/

Thank you Yann. I wish you a lot of good time reading and talking about the book with you daughter.

@kirschner The one-year-old likes it. She says 'Ada' (very toddler-friendly name) and imitates the screwdriver motion 🔩 😉

I really loved the book, so, content and theme and also how they even published the book under CC.

And it's awesome people make fanart for it, and a great piece of fanart nontheless!

Looking really lovely and I really hope the authors get to see this awesome piece as well!

Thanks for sharing this with us, and of course for even doing it in a FOSS piece of software, lovely all the way! ❤

@BryanGreyson Thank you! Oh yeah, I can really see a great spin-off for Ada: a retro video game where she rides an electric skateboard and collects ice cream from vending machines. Something colourful and fun, or maybe something like "Turtle" to learn how to program and move her character. Well, a character like that was missing in Free Culture, that's for sure. 😍

@BryanGreyson Love the idea. Has anyone released a sprite bundle of your drawing characters? Actually 8-bit style sprite would amazing for a retro style game.

great stuff... I would love someone published it in Brazil

@fabiocosta0305 My experience with Pepper&Carrot is that if you translate the content first, and then show it to local publishers you can accelerate by a lot the process. But it's a lot of work. Maybe a local Free/Libre Software group or association could eases the workload; in any case, they prublished a translation guideline on their GIT repo: git.fsfe.org/FSFE/ada-zangeman , a good entry door for that.

Just got the E-book, and it is truly amazing! The art style is awesome, and it covers a complex issue in an easy-to-digest way.

@3kh0 Oh yes, I really like how the message around Free/Libre Software (but hardware too) and liberty to modify hardware and software is subtle. Not in foreground at all but still the backbone of the story. They kept it entertaining with the skateboard and ice creams.

@kirschner @fsfe Ha, I'm happy you like it! 😍

I uploaded the hi-resolution and source on the "Misc" category of the gallery on Pepper&Carrot: peppercarrot.com/en/viewer/mis , I think there is enough pixel to print it the size you like. 😊
