Event Details

* Date:  November or December 2011
* Time:  TBD

Budget Details

FUDCon APAC has been provided a tentative budget of 15000 US Dollars as per

Rahul Sundaram will talk to teams within Red Hat and others on complimenting the budget but for the bidding process, our planning must be limited within this amount. Note that if a Red Hat person comes from some other country, his or her manager will generally fund that travel and that's what we will encourage. Max Spevack has additional discretionary budget in special cases. Community volunteers need funds to be taken out of the FUDCon allotted budget typically.

We are also tracking this at This ticket is private to event organizers.
