I have Updated the event owner chart above, to remove Bill Nash as an event owner. Because for now the budget only supports two Ambassadors travel & lodge, myself and Dan Mossor. Leaving Adam Miller on the table as a courtesy, as he will be at the event, but not subsidized by this budget.

OSCON REPORT


Fedora ambassadors Dan Mosser & Jon Disnard attended the 2016 OSCON in Austin TX. This year Fedora shared space with Redhat, taking one demo kiosk of four available in the Redhat booth. This year Redhat gave it's booth over to Open Source communities it sponsors, so Fedora, CentOS, and Openshift upstream.

The Expo hall opened Tuesday noonish, and closed Thursday evening. There was probably 20+ hours of booth duty time over the week.

We setup F24 Workstation (beta) to show off the latest GUI environment, and loaded F24 Server in a VM to show cockpit in a browser window.

Available swag was Fedora hexagon stickers, along with Cockpit & Project Atomic hex stickers (as significantly related projects).

Many many attendees came by, and asked every imaginible question related to Fedora.

The booth was crowded at times.

The event itself was large, thousands upon thousands of attendees.

Other Distros present were Canonical & FreeBSD foundation.


The event was a sucess.
