The purpose of this page is to build a global Fedora events calendar, and to identify responsible Ambassadors for each event.

This page is laid out by quarter and by region. Please maintain the layout, as it is crucial for budget planning.

Events can be added to this page whether or not they have an Ambassador owner. Events without an owner are not eligible for funding, but being listed allows any Ambassador to take ownership of the event and make it eligible for funding.

Additional information:

  • Reimbursements -- reimbursement guidelines.
  • Budget -- budget for the current quarter (as distributed by FAMSCo).
  • Sponsorship -- how decisions are made to subsidize travel by community members.
  • Organization -- event organization, budget information, and regional responsibility.
  • Event reports -- guidelines and suggestions.
  • Linux events -- a collection of calendars of Linux events.

Contents

North America (NA)

NOTE: Please do not remove events from the list until the end of the quarter. This helps planning for following quarters.
