Fedora conference in Switzerland next week
From the 17th to the 19th of September, Fedora Project developers and users will get together in Zurich, Switzerland for the Fedora Users and Developers Conference, referred to as simply FUDCon. The event is being held as part of FrOSCamp at ETH Zurich on 17th and 18th.
FUDCon Zurich is the second FUDCon of the year and the only one in the Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region. As well as many Fedora and Red Hat developers from the region, a number of big US-based Fedora names are expected to attend. Jared Smith, who has been working as Fedora Project Leader since the end of June, will be there, and Fedora Engineering Manager Tom "spot" Callaway, Release Engineer Jesse Keating, 'Fedora QA Community Monkey' Adam Williamson and Fedora board member Máirín Duffy will also make the trip across the Atlantic.
More than eighty guests have already registered for the event. A mix of presentations and workshops are planned for the first two days, with a barcamp style conference planned for the third day. Further details of the programme and of evening events such as FUDPub can be found on the Fedora wiki.
