Texas Linux Fest is the first state-wide, community-run conference for Linux and open source software users and enthusiasts from around the Lone Star State. Much like SCALE in Los Angeles, Ohio Linux Fest in Columbus, and Linux Fest Northwest -- and an ever-growing list of successful regional shows -- Texas Linux Fest is a weekend event geared towards individual users, rather than an expensive multi-workday expo that might cater primarily to sponsored attendees. Whether you use free software and Linux at home, in your place of business, in your school or non-profit, or you are simply curious, Texas Linux Fest offers something for you.

Budget

  • Red Hat and Fedora are making a combined $2500 sponsorship for TLF, $1k of which will come out of Fedora Ambassador budget, and the other $1500 of which will come from some other part of Red Hat budget. I hope this is ok. (Max)
  • $500 Sponsorship of Ambassadors coming in from out of town
    • I think we can get a room at the Hilton with two beds and some travel cost reimbursement for right at or slightly under $500 to allow for two out of town (but Texas local) Ambassadors to come.
