* '''Q: Do I have to do my presentation in English?'''
 
* A: Nope, it's up to you. We're expecting some foreigners and visits from Red Hat to come, but if you don't feel comfortable doing the presentation in English, do it in Czech/Slovak
 
 
* '''Q: So what kind of conference is it going to be? Like every other Linux conference?'''
 
* A: No! The plan is to have a conference for developers, admins and testers, eg. not average Linux users, but for skilled Linux users who are either administering some servers, deploying services on Linux or developing apps on Linux
 
 
* '''Q: How long does my presentation or session have to be?'''
 
* A: Anylong from 30minutes up to one hour, workshops will probably be longer. We'll prepare a schedule apx a month before the event, at that time you'll be asked for time estimate.

'''Note:''' the times include the time needed to get from the airport to the railway or bus station.
+
=== By Bus ===
 +
Brno is part of the European bus network and all connections and their prices are similar to trains. Most buses arrive to Brno-Zvonarka, only Student Agency buses arrive to Grand Hotel. Student Agency (http://www.studentagency.eu/) and Eurolines (http://www.eurolines.com/) provide buses to many European cities.
  
There are no relevant return discounts for trains, and the budget airlines often offer no return discount as well, so there is little incentive to use the same airport for both direction. Thus it might be a good idea, for example, to visit Vienna during your return journey; for details, see [[FUDCon/FUDConBrno2008/Travel/FromViennaToBrno|Vienna -> Brno]].
+
=== By Car ===
 +
Brno is well-connected to other cities by highways. You can get easily to neighboring countries by car. Travel time examples:
 +
* Prague – 210 km, 2 hours,
 +
* Bratislava – 130 km, 1.3 hour,
 +
* Vienna – 143 km, 1.8 hour,
 +
* Budapest – 326 km, 3 hours,
 +
* Munich – 587 km, 5.3 hours,
 +
* Berlin – 555 km, 5.2 hours.
