Technical FAD in Buenos Aires


Planned to happen close to the Fedora 19 Beta Release this Technical FAD is the event promoted by LATAM contributors during the FY14.


In this meeting we're going to have hands on sessions presented about how to get engaged and contribute with Fedora, with focus in requirements and process. This sessions are going to take part of FAD time and will be presented by LATAM Fedora Contributors and Red Hat employees. The remaining time will be spent working in QA activities and bug reporting for Fedora 19 Beta.

Furthermore, our intention to create a mentorship program so that new contributors can have their progress assisted by other experienced volunteers.


There are some expected deliverable for this Fedora Activity Day:

  • Have new contributors properly enabled to collaborate, i.e with functional FAS accounts, personal wiki pages and enrolled with the SIGs
  • Determine mentors for each new contributors so that they work and progress can be followed
  • Find adopters for orphan packages in FAD
  • During part of FAD we're going to work in QA activities for Fedora 19 Beta
  • In the end of the event we're going to discuss the participation in other conferences during FY14
