Design-fad-2014.png

This is the main page for the 2015 Design Team FAD, which is a FAD (a mini-conference) focused on working on a roadmap for the Fedora Design Team over the next year or two.

  • Location: Red Hat's Westford Office at 314 Littleton Road, Westford Massachusetts USA
  • Dates: January 16th - 18th 2015


Purpose / Agenda

We will meet starting Friday morning (~9 AM) and work until late afternoon each day; we will likely break a bit early on Sunday to allow for travellers to get to the airport.

Here is a calendar that breaks out our time into 9 90-minute blocks as well as time for a welcome/introductions session and a closing session. It also lists out various important transporation timelines for shuttle vans, etc.:

https://apps.fedoraproject.org/calendar/design-FAD/2015/1/12/

Here the high-level agenda items we'd like to cover over the 3 days:

Travel / Accommodation / Transportation

Airport Transportation

Boston Logan International Airport (map), +1-800-23-LOGAN (56426), (IATA: BOS) is the main gateway to Boston and New England and around 40 miles from Westford.

Arrivals

Paul has rented a minivan and will do 2 trips from the airport and to Westford and back; it can hold 6 people including a driver, and luggage. The trips will be as follows:

  • 1:45 PM departure; will arrive at Westford Regency around 2:30 PM.
    • Passengers: Suchakra, Zach, Sirko, Yogi
  • 9:00 PM departure; will arrive at Westford Regency around 9:45 PM.
    • Passengers: Sarup, Luya, Sam, Chris
  • Mo will meet Marie at the airport and ride train with her to her house. Alternatively, if there is interest, Mo can give a mini tour of Boston to anyone waiting for the 9 PM van.

Departures

There will be 2 trips to the airport and one trip into the city for local residents on Sunday. We will have a catered lunch brought to the event for 11:30 so folks departing on the first run will be able to eat before their departure.

  • 12:30 PM departure; will arrive at Logan Airport at ~1:15 PM.
    • Passengers: Luya (3:22 PM), Chris (4:07 PM), Sam, Yogi
  • 2:20 PM departure; will arrive at Logan Airport at ~3:05 PM

The town car is already fully paid for, including the gratuity, so you should not have to pay or tip. You guys can check in your luggage for the day for $10 at the Greyhound terminal at South Station and tour the city. When you go to South Station to pick up your luggage at the end of the day, note that there is a direct line from South Station to the Airport on the Silver line, the fees are the same as the subway (~$2).
