Announcing FUDCon Boston 2007

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.

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

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 it.

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