Users group

Every year FISL opens space for users groups. We ask for a space to make a point of encounter and interaction between users, participants and employees attending the event.

Community Event

The goal of the community event is to present the Fedora Project participants from FISL and a meeting between the users. The session will be split into a main talk about the Fedora Project in general, followed by lightning talks and a quick session for discussion with the participants.
