=== About Beijing ===
 
==== The city ====
 
[[Wikipedia:Beijing|Beijing]] (北京) is the capital and cultural heart of China. It houses many universities and high profile IT companies of which [http://cn.redhat.com/ Red Hat China] is one.
 
 
 
Beijing is the second largest city in the People's Republic of China and has a very distinct and easy layout. The city is based around a ring structure which starts with the Forbidden City (or Palace Museum) being the center.
 
 
 
The city allows you to easily move around using public transport, of which the Subway is probably the best way. All proposed events sites,hotels, restaurants and shopping places are easily accessible by subway. You can see numerous lines at [[FUDCon:Bid_for_Beijing_2014#Transit_to.2Ffrom_FUDCon| '''here''']]
 
 
 
Beijing provides full possibilities for foreign visitors to have rich experience in the following ways:
 
 
 
* '''Cuisine''': Restaurants of different tastes of food from all over the world are available in Beijing. From the most well known restaurants of Quan Ju De Roasting Duck, Dong Lai Shun Instant-boiled Mutton, to popular gourmet street. It's easy for you to find the right one suitable for your budget from 4 dollars/person to 60 dollars/person or above. If you just want a snack or lunch, almost in every street you can find a cheap restaurant which offers all kinds of Chinese food.
 
* '''Art''': 798 Art Zone (Cao Chang Di, which is often compared with New York's Greenwich Village or SoHo), The National Centre for the Performing Arts.
 
* '''Famous Sites''': The Great Wall, the Forbidden City (the Palace Museum; palace of emperors during the Ming and Qing Dynasty), Tian An Men Square, Mausoleum of Mao Ze Dong, Temple of Heaven (where emperors made visits for annual ceremonies to pray to Heaven for propsperity and good harvest), the Summer Palace, Siheyuan (courtyard houses) and Hutong (alleys).
 
* '''Entertainment''': Some famous bar street are quite easily reachable by subway. Using Line 10 you can travel to Tuanjiehu and visit Sanlitun (三里屯). This area is famous as an international bar street and offers a lot of different styles of Western food. Another option which is about 25 minutes away is Wudaokao (五道口), this is also a famous area mostly known among students. Yuan Dadu covers an area of 10,000 square meters and provides one of the longest bar streets in Beijing.
 
* '''Shopping''': Xiu Shui Street (Silk Street) is quite a hot spot for foreign visitors where you could buy silk, pearl, Chinaware, handicrafts and clothes at a low price. The other well know shopping areas are Xi Dan and Dong Dan, respectively on the east and west side of the famous Tian An Men Square.
 
* '''Architecture''': This is a city where you could see both traditional architecture of imperial China and much more modern architectural forms.
 
==== Open Source Communities and Universities ====
 
 
 
There are different kinds of open source communities located here in Beijing. Along them there are [http://www.beijinglug.org/ Beijing GNU/Linux User Group] (aka BLUG for short), [http://www.bjgug.org/ Beijing GNOME User Group](BJGUG), [http://mozilla.com.cn/ China Firefox Community] and so on.
 
 
 
There are different kinds of open source activities here, too. Among them are Software Freedom Day every year, BLUG monthly meetup, PyCon, and so on. As for local Fedora community, we have successfully held FAD in 2011, Release Parties for Fedora release 18--20. We have many cooperatoin with other communities. For example, we held "The unity of open source community (Fedora, Ubuntu and openSUSE)" with BJGUG, Ubuntu community, and openSUSE community together on Mar 19, 2013.
 
 
 
Besides, there are a total of over 80 universities located in Beijing. Some of them have Linux related research team, and a lot of them have Linux or open source related leagues and courses, such as TUNA in Tsinghua, OSLUG in GUCAS, and so on. A lot of students here in Beijing are willing to volunteer for open source related activities.

We'd like speakers to apply Visa type L (travel visa), since its application is normally easier, and the requirements are loose. For Visa type L, the requirement is EITHER flight ticket and hotel reservation OR an invitation letter.

=== I was there! ===

{{admon/note| Were you there?|Drop your social web info here}}
  
If things go smoothly, two weeks can be enough, but there will not room for error. It's better to start the application two months before the travel time.

== Pros and Cons of Proposed Location ==
+
=== Visa Application ===
 +
We list links here about Chinese visa introduction and application procedure:

 +
* [http://www.gov.cn/fuwu/wgrc.htm Portal], in Chinese
  
=== Pro ===
+
We'd like speakers to apply Visa type L (travel visa), since its application is normally easier, and the requirements are loose. For Visa type L, the requirement is EITHER flight ticket and hotel reservation OR an invitation letter.
* Opportunity to grow Open Source and Fedora presence in Asia, especially in China.
 
* Possible co-operation with various user groups in Beijing and China, e.g. BJGUG, Beijing LUG, etc. We are discussing co-location with BJGUG people who will host GNOME.Asia 2014. Since GNOME is one major upstream of Fedora, and Fedora is one major distro for GNOME, it can be a great chance for people in both communities to meet face to face.
 
<!-- * Mozilla China has shown interest to participate in a themed track; e.g. web technologies. -->
 
* The city provides a lot of possibilities to explore; cultural, history, cuisine, architectural, etc.
 
* Excellent mass/public transport options.
 
* Most major airline companies offer direct flights to the airport and traffic costs and time to reach the hotel are minimal (within 1 hour).
 
<!-- * Sponsoring is being discussed with Fabricatorz, China Mobile and other options. -->
 
  
=== Con ===
+
If things go smoothly, two weeks can be enough, but there will not room for error. It's better to start the application two months before the travel time.
* English proficiency is limited for certain locations/services. Needed information and help will be provided as much as possible by the event organizers. Solutions have already been discussed, like downloaded flyers and instructions in China which can be handed to taxi drivers or desk personnel.
+
 
* Someone has raised concern about Beijing smog. In fact it is highly affected by the weather condition. Generally it is worse in winter, but not so bad in summer. Besides the local government has decided to spend much money in renovation. People can query the latest air quality from various websites or apps for trip guidance. There will be alert in case of harmful haze before 24 hours.
+
Visa for US Citizens is USD 140.

For example, we held "The unity of open source community (Fedora, Ubuntu and openSUSE)" with BJGUG, Ubuntu community, and openSUSE community together on Mar 19, 2013.
 +
 
 +
Besides, there are a total of over 80 universities located in Beijing. Some of them have Linux related research team, and a lot of them have Linux or open source related leagues and courses, such as TUNA in Tsinghua, OSLUG in GUCAS, and so on. A lot of students here in Beijing are willing to volunteer for open source related activities.

We are seeking local sponsors for 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.

The final expense is as follows.

Special Notes for Hackfest/Workshop

Note.png
Hackfest info
Refer to FUDCon hackfest on what is expected from a hackfest


Session Type Session Name Description Owner Pre-requisites
Hackfest Packaging a ROS Groovy SCL for Fedora "The robotics SIG has been working on packaging up the ROS robotics platform for Fedora. I'd like to sit down with any interested parties and package up as much of ROS groovy as possible as an SCL to a COPR repository.
I'll use the opportunity to teach people how SCLs work and even some packaging if there are new people looking to start with Fedora packaging."
Ankur Sinha A working Fedora 19/20 installation. Some knowledge of RPM packaging would be beneficial.
Workshop A GPG key signing party "The GPG key signing party helps to extend the web of trust to a great degree. I'll briefly introduce the web of trust, and then we'll go about signing each others GPG keys! We'll also discuss good practices about backing up one's keys etc. and how one can use GPG to sign other things, like e-mail, git commits or encrypt files." Ankur Sinha A working Fedora 19/20 installation. All attendees should have valid gpg keys, and photo ID card.
Workshop LaTeX Tips An interactive workshop/training to walk through common mistakes in LaTeX usage, and more importantly talk about the correct way. Also talk about how to troubleshoot the "mysterious" LaTeX error log. Alick Zhao A working TeX installation (e.g. TeX Live 2013 on Fedora 20)
Workshop Fedora i18n and L10n A brief introduction of Fedora i18n and L10n process. We'll talk about how to do i18n on Fedora and how to do L10n on Transifex platform. And some basic procedure on i18n & L10n test. Also we'll share some experience on translation. Tian Shixiong Lijun Li A working Fedora system with poedit and msgfmt tools installed. Able to connect to internet. It will be great if you have a transifex account and currently are a contributor of a project.
