  • The event is limited to 100 people maximum, so the atmosphere should be more conducive to personal interaction
  • It's a great opportunity for a more personalized Fedora event


  • Location: Harrisburg, PA
  • Flight: MDT, Middeltown, or Harrisburg International Airport

  • Getting around: Please fill me in


  • Sunday, October 19, 2008
  • Doors open at 8am for Registration and the event should be finished around 6pm
  • Setup/booth duty schedule below


The event is mainly presentations, and isn't so focused on a booth presence.

  • Fedora Sponsor Table
    • Mainly LiveCDs and Install Media, plus a USB Filling station.
    • Would be nice to have an XO running Fedora. Any volunteers?
