WHAT:   Fedora Users and Developers Conference
WHEN:   Friday, February 2nd, 2007
WHERE:  Boston University, Boston MA, USA


On Friday, February 2nd, Fedora enthusiasts will gather at Boston
University for the annual appearance of the world-famous groundhog Fedora
Phil.  According to legend, if Fedora Phil sees his shadow, there will be
six more weeks of Fedora test releases.

OK, so there's no groundhog.  But there's no place like FUDCon to meet and
greet the luminaries of the Fedora community.

This year's FUDCon Boston will be a little bit different.  We'll be
following the BarCamp model.  A BarCamp is basically an "un-conference";
rather than have a bunch of canned tracks, the goal is to get a bunch of
interesting people together to discuss whatever they are passionate about.
Everyone gets together in the morning and pitches their own sessions.  If
it's about Fedora, great.  If it has nothing to do with Fedora, that's
great too.  (Juggling is a popular session at a lot of BarCamps.)

Rest assured, though: there will be lots of sessions about Fedora.  If you
want to learn more about Fedora, there's no better place on Earth to do

If you're interested, sign up early: space will be somewhat limited.  Just
go to the BarCamp wiki and add your name:


If you think you might be interested in running a session, put your
session proposal on the wiki:



For those who are interested in deeper participation, we'll also be having
a hackfest on Saturday and Sunday.  If you'd like to participate, respond
to me off-list for more information.

See you at FUDCon Boston 2007!
