Managua is the Capital city of Nicaragua. One distinct feature is that has a lot of concrete cobbled streets. You can not walk the city, you may walk within some neighbourhood, but usually distances are beyond walking distance and there is lack of side walks. The address is based on landmark references.

Managua is the Capital city of Nicaragua. One distinct feature is that has a lot of concrete cobbled streets. You can not walk the city, you may walk within some neighbourhood, but usually distances are beyond walking distance and there is lack of side walks. The address system is based on landmark references. You may think that Managua is a place "Where streets have no names", but in true is that nobody uses them.

The schedule we propose tries to address some concerns. It is really difficult to obtain sponsorship if there is not topics. Also it is difficult to invite people with no topics. So we propose to have predefined talks to attract sponsors and public. We want to lower the profile of barcamp, as not many people understand the concept. All local barcamps organized had been social (drinking) activities with no technical part. Going further, we want to produce results, so we need workshops where people do stuff while they learn something. It is a two fold goal.

As usual there are informal gathering after the daily activities, we are planning on having a conference room at the hotel. This will be avaliable to meet and engage in further interaction between local and international collaborators. The plan is to have a car to provide transport for those collaborators that live far and where public transportation stops to provide service at certain hours.

We'll have a sports day in [http://www.zonadeportiva.com.ni/futbolsala.php Zona Deportiva]. The place has pitches for many games such as football, American football, baseball and softball. There are many stores around. After playing we'll have a dinner in there.
There is a popular Nicaraguan food for festivities called "Caballo Bayo". Food is serve in a buffet, clay pottery that holds ignited charcoals and on top there is a big clay plate holding the food hot. Usually there is shredded beef, shredded chicken, minced pork, plantains, cheese, cream, among other stuff. You take corn tortillas in a plate and serve whatever you like. By default we can have this at the hotel. We are exploring other locations to offer different locations.

:''Please add your name to the list if you will attend.'' Also, please indicate the following:
 +
:* Put an '''X''' in the ''$$$'' column if you need funding to attend, and '''visit [https://fedorahosted.org/fudcon-planning/wiki/FundingRequest the FUDCon ticket tracker] to make a funding request'''. We have a limited budget and will work hard to fund as many people as possible.  We'll use these answers to help figure out budgeting for the event.  We are making arrangements for attendees from other geographic regions to encourage specific initiatives such as future FUDCon events, but '''preference may otherwise be given to people in North America.'''
 +
:* Put a '''V''' in the ''Veg'' column if you would like vegetarian fare for any meals that we provide during the event.  If you prefer vegan fare, please mark that column '''VV'''.  We will do our best to make sure everyone is accommodated! Note: "Hell No" and similar statements are offensive to some and should not be included in this column.
 +
:* Put your T-shirt size in the ''Size'' column, so we can have an idea about what sizes to have available. Only Unisex (Mens Sizes will be ordered)
 +
:* '''Roomsharing:''' <ol><li>If you want or need to share a room, mark '''yes''' in the "Roomshare?" column.</li><li>Once you have a roommate, both of you should '''mark your roommate's name''' in the block as well.</li><li>If you need a roommate, look for someone with just a '''yes''' in the column, and contact them via email.  If you encounter any problems, let the organizers know.</li></ol>
 +
:Use the Comments section for anything else you think organizers need to know, or to offer or ask for space or rides.

| Fedora means freedom &mdash; registration is free and open to everyone. | You can pre-register anonymously, but now is a great time to create a Fedora account if you don't have one!  For those new to Fedora, you can [https://admin.fedoraproject.org/accounts register in the Fedora Account System] and follow the instructions there to complete the FPCA. This process usually takes less than 5 minutes.
  
The current budget is made with certain assumptions that may change in the upcoming months. We think that we will have a crew of 40, including organizing team (10), people giving talks (20) and supporting staff (10). Most likely this will be reduced. This is our starting point. There has been short time to call for sponsorship and the holidays season has not helped. We are aware that there will be some minor expenses like printing identification tags, and some more important expenses like printing posters for promoting the event. But our goal is to show that there is a remainder budget to sponsor travelling.

The idea is that there will be 20 people from abroad plus 20 local people helping with the event. This is an estimated. Most likely there will less people.

The current budget is made with certain assumptions that may change in the upcoming months. We think that we will have a crew of 40, including organizing team (10), people giving talks (20) and supporting staff (10). Most likely this will be reduced. This is our starting point. There has been short time to call for sponsorship and the holidays season has not helped. We are aware that there will be some minor expenses like printing identification tags, and some more important expenses like printing posters for promoting the event. But our goal is to show that there is a remainder budget to sponsor travelling. We expect to have ups and downs, as less travelling sponsored will reduce expenses which in turn will provide more budget for sponsoring until it find an equilibrium. We hope that we can sponsor people travelling by bus from nearby countries.

Goals

As far as we have seen there is no previous FUDCon focused on goals.

  1. Provide as much skill transfer between international contributors and local contributors as possible.
  2. Provide as much training for collaborating with Fedora as possible as a mean to recruit new contributors.
  3. Produce results such as translation, documentation, packaging and not least important regional working agreements.
  4. Promote the local collaborators to be known by the rest of the international community.

Fudcon-managua.jpg

Organizing Team

(Alphabetically by surname)

Team members have organized and been part of the staff in small and large events. Small events like university visits, informal gatherings and Fedora release parties. Large events like, Document Freedom Day, FLISOL and Software Freedom Day.

We will be looking to have supporting staff, so current collaborators can make the most of the event. The venue offers a degree program in tourism whose students usually staff events at the university.

Managua

Managua lake.png

Managua is the Capital city of Nicaragua. One distinct feature is that has a lot of concrete cobbled streets. You can not walk the city, you may walk within some neighbourhood, but usually distances are beyond walking distance and there is lack of side walks. The address system is based on landmark references. You may think that Managua is a place "Where streets have no names", but in true is that nobody uses them.

Airport

Managua International airport Agusto Cesar Sandino has MGA code (which is very important for internet fare searches). It is serve by Avianca-TACA, Copa, American Airlines, Delta, United, Spirit and Nature Air. You may expect to get connection at Miami, Houston, Atlanta, San Salvador or Panama City. Airport is about 12 kilometers from city center.

Local Transportation

The public transportation is overcrowded. A bus routes map exists and can be found here

There is plenty of taxi cabs but they don't have fare meters. You have to agree on the fare beforehand, and it is expected that you bargain over the price.

Schedule

Dates

October 23th to October 25th, 2014.

This will be at mid rainy season. Temperature will be around 26C / 80F with 50% of rain probability. When rains, usually it is for a short time, most likely at the end of the afternoon.

Agenda

The schedule we propose tries to address some concerns. It is really difficult to obtain sponsorship if there is not topics. Also it is difficult to invite people with no topics. So we propose to have predefined talks to attract sponsors and public. We want to lower the profile of barcamp, as not many people understand the concept. All local barcamps organized had been social (drinking) activities with no technical part. Going further, we want to produce results, so we need workshops where people do stuff while they learn something. It is a two fold goal.

FUDPub

As usual there are informal gathering after the daily activities, we are planning on having a conference room at the hotel. This will be avaliable to meet and engage in further interaction between local and international collaborators. The plan is to have a car to provide transport for those collaborators that live far and where public transportation stops to provide service at certain hours.

Fud-Pub

We'll have a sports day in Zona Deportiva. The place has pitches for many games such as football, American football, baseball and softball. There are many stores around. After playing we'll have a dinner in there.

Venue

The venue is Universidad de Ciencias Comerciales. This is a small university, every building is easy to finger point. Their conference hall is mid size, they have a second conference hall and some small conference rooms and have some medium size labs.

There are many business nearby, like banks, computer stores, mobile cell phone offices, office supply stores, convenience stores and supermarket. UCC has sponsored some free software events in the past.

Logistics

Accommodation

Teodolinda.png

Our official Hotel is Mansión Teodolinda. It offers a good Internet infrastructure and is offering a meeting room for hacking after hours. It has been offered to provide transport to the venue free of charges. The hotel has airport shuttle service, this is a pending issue to negotiate.

Near by there are some small bars, pharmacy, shopping centre (food court, cinemas and small stands of mobile phone companies) and a gas station (24 hours convenience store and ATM).

Catering

Within the campus there is a nice place with picnic tables that can be used for lunch. They have a big place for lunch, and they can provide us lunch if we arrange that beforehand. There are many small places to eat nearby. We can even choose to go to restaurants for lunch, as there are some in reasonable distance.

Pre-registration system

To register for a workshop or hacking session, please go to fudconlatam.org.

Travel

Visa information

People from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador only require valid government issued ID to enter Nicaragua.

The rest of countries required valid passport. The passport expiration day should be at least six months later than the entry day. Most country does no require visa. However there is a short list of countries that their nationals require to obtain visa before travelling to Nicaragua. Having in mind countries that have fedora collaborators, people from Colombia, Costa Rica, Peru require visa. This is a decision within the consular office, should be a short time waiting. For some other countries, not relevant to our case, the visa have to be consulted to the inmigration offices at Nicaragua and take longer to be processed. You can consult the complete list at the foreign ministry web site (Spanish)

There is a fee at the migration check point (airport o border) of USD 5.00 applied to foreigners.

Budget

The current budget is made with certain assumptions that may change in the upcoming months. We think that we will have a crew of 40, including organizing team (10), people giving talks (20) and supporting staff (10). Most likely this will be reduced. This is our starting point. There has been short time to call for sponsorship and the holidays season has not helped. We are aware that there will be some minor expenses like printing identification tags, and some more important expenses like printing posters for promoting the event. But our goal is to show that there is a remainder budget to sponsor travelling. We expect to have ups and downs, as less travelling sponsored will reduce expenses which in turn will provide more budget for sponsoring until it find an equilibrium. We hope that we can sponsor people travelling by bus from nearby countries.
