Fedora Ambassador Day EMEA 2008

The FAD 2008 is an event intended to plan the ambassadors' activities in 2009 and to have some fun together.

Organization

Duration

Location

  • City: Basel, Switzerland
  • Airport: EuroAirport Basel Mulhouse Freiburg (BSL)
  • Train station: Basel SBB

Basel was chosen by MaxSpevack and SandroMathys after weighing various options, including travel distance and time for people all over Europe. We recognize that some people who want to attend may need travel sponsorship, and MaxSpevack will make sure that we have some budget set aside for that. Please contact him with questions. It was a difficult decision and the votes were split, but we did what we thought was best overall.

Accomodation

TBD in early August

Attendees

Now that we have a location, please indicate whether or not you will be able to attend. Please add a note if you have no choice but to arrive later/leave earlier (i.e. are not there on Friday and/or Sunday) or can't attend the dinner on Friday evening.

Agenda

Business

Feel free to add important topics to the list. But keep in mind, that we're very limited in time!

  • Status update for FOSDEM 2009.
  • Planning the Fedora EMEA priorities for March 2009 - February 2010, to coincide with Red Hat's budget year.
    • Two major events
      • FUDCon EMEA 2009
      • One other (maybe LinuxTag)
    • Various mid-level events
    • Make it easy for ambassadors to organize small events in their countries
  • What do we want to focus on in addition to events?
  • What do we need from Red Hat?
  • What can we do (longtime Planing)?
  • What are the biggest problems Fedora faces in EMEA?
  • How are our smaller communities doing?

Fun

Feel free to add your own ideas. Please note, that we most probably won't make this decision public before the FAD has begun - see it as a little surprise. We might or might not take anything that was suggested here. But your ideas are a great help for brainstorming, anyway.

Ideas:

  • Augusta Raurica (old Roman city) -- red
  • Feldschloesschen Brewery, which is inside a very nice castle -- red
  • Eat some local food speciality on Saturday for dinner -- GeroldKa / red

Budget

  • MaxSpevack has indicated that he can provide at least 500 EUR budget for this event. As we get closer, the number may go up. Budget will be used for travel subsidies, lodging subsidies, food, and some fun event.
