I am planning to deliver ad hoc, impromptu information (talks) about Open Source and Fedora. I will be using existing talks as templates and guides.

I will be offering T-Shirts to visitors who allow a Fedora 16 installation on any supported device.

I may have a raffle / drawing for some special items.

Important Deadlines

If you are planning to assist, please arrive before 8AM. I plan to setup as early as possible, and also to connect my kickstart/tftp server for the free installations.

I will need some help breaking down around 6PM local time. Dinner will be provided!
