For eight years, Fedora users and developers have gathered at regional events named for them, the Fedora Users and Developers conference (FUDCon). But we’ve grown, and it’s time for a new approach: Flock.
Flock will bring together the global Fedora communities for three days of scheduled content with one optional day at the end for open hacking. Unlike the barcamp style we've used in the past for FUDCon, Flock will accept submissions in advance for talks, hackfests, sprints, and workshops. The schedule will be built based on the community's votes on those submissions.
Dates: August 9-12, 2013
Location: College of Charleston (Charleston, SC, USA)
Pre-registration is now open! (See the "Register" link on the website.)
Please be sure to indicate when you register whether you need flight or hotel funding to attend. Priority will be given to Fedora contributors who are presenting (or leading a hackfest/workshop/sprint).
And to that, the call for talks is also now open. Submissions should be for one of the following:
- Talk (45 minutes)
- Hackfest (2 hours)
- Workshop (2 hours)
- Sprint (2 hours)
You may submit as many topics as you feel qualified to deliver. Suggested topics include but are in no way limited to:
- Fedora Ambassadors
- Open hardware
- Special Interest Groups
Ready to submit a talk? Go to http://flock-lmacken.rhcloud.com/submit_proposal. All submissions must be received by May 31, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
I hope to see many of you there.
