What is Fedora 28 Release Party

This will be a social event to meet other Fedora users and people curious about Fedora from Quito and Ecuador in general, and check out the cool features of the new Fedora 28 release. It will also serve as an opportunity for people to find out what Fedora and free software in general is all about and ask questions of people already involved in the community. It is also a opportunity for students of Department of Electronics and Systems Engineering to learn about Fedora and open-source principles and how can they get involved with FOSS/Fedora.
