I am planning to deliver ad hoc, impromptu information (talks) about Open Source and Fedora. I will be using existing talks as templates and guides.
I will be offering T-Shirts to visitors who allow a Fedora 16 installation on any supported device.
I may have a raffle / drawing for some special items.
If you are planning to assist, please arrive before 8AM. I plan to setup as early as possible, and also to connect my kickstart/tftp server for the free installations.
I will need some help breaking down around 6PM local time. Dinner will be provided!
We are requesting shipping of materials, event box, booth, and swag and marketing materials to stock for the event.
