FUDCon is the Fedora Users and Developer's Conference, an opportunity for all who contribute to or use Fedora to meet, learn, plan, and hack. This event is free and is open to everyone. To learn about what a FUDCon is like, you can view a video from the North American FUDCon 2009. Please read https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FUDCon_organization_process and understand it thoroughly if you are a event organizing volunteer. If you are responsible for finding a good place, refer to the requirements listed in https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FUDCon/Organization

Discussion on Venue

While the the team leaning towards doing it in Johor, south of Malaysia due to its vicinity to Singapore, there are several issues which might affect the event

Location The good The bad Possible Venues Other info Vote
Kuala Lumpur (Central)
  • Near to KL IT hub - many potential groups to poke for attendees
  • Easier to reach from the international airport
  • Better public transports
  • Further from RH-SG
Melaka
  • Touristy venue
  • Traffic might be bad during holidays
  • MMU Melaka
Johor Bahru (South)
  • Near to Singapore,
    • Near to RH-SG
    • Near to SEA IT hub
  • Further away from .MY IT hub - which are at central (Kuala Lumpur) and north (Penang) - might affect local attendee count
  • Less developed (if compared to central)
  • Further from the international airport (which is up north at KL) - take quite some work to go down south
  • UTM Skudai
Perak
  • UTP

2215 (base) + 1000 (FUDPub/BBQ) + 400 (Bus) = 3615 USD

Pre-registration
