Fedora Marketing Activity Days 2010

DRAFT Version 0.1

The mktg-FAD 2010 is an event intended to plan the marketing' activities in 2010 and to have some fun together.



Not sure how many days are needed.

  • when?
    • Mel had suggested March as a timeframe.
    • March 13 - 21 dates work out well for Ryan Rix and User:rbergero due to spring break timing, but is not a requirement for either.


Suggestions include:

  • Hawaii (it never hurts to dream)
  • Coast cities make for less plane-hopping, although other cities have direct flights as well.
    • Portland (an open-source friendly city!)
    • Seattle
    • Vancouver
    • Atlanta
    • Boston
  • Phoenix/Tempe, AZ: Europeans can take a nice direct flight from LHR to PHX which makes for GREAT sleeping time! Also where Ryan Rix and Robyn Bergeron live, more or less.
  • Las Vegas, NV: Cheap rooms! Cheap food! Conference space abounds! Also, engineering marvels like the Hoover Dam, and natural wonders like Zion National Park, are nearby for sightseeing purposes, in case your eyes just couldn't get enough in Vegas.


Ride Sharing / Car Pooling


Please fill in your details .
