From Fedora Project Wiki

This page contains information about the Fedora Project at the Red Hat Summit 2010. You can compare this to the original vision for the event on its own page.

The Red Hat Summit is a conference where Red Hat converses with its customers. A Fedora presence supports the event by demonstrating the importance of community in the Red Hat ecosystem, but also benefits Fedora because Red Hat's customers are sometimes interested in looking at and contributing to Fedora once they find out about us.

We'll be located prominently and should have a substantial amount of foot traffic, as we did with the Red Hat Summit 2009. Located nearby will be the Spacewalk project as well.

Paul will be available at most times except where marked, but could use help any time you're free. If you've already checked the agenda and know when you're free, please mark your name above!
  • Sandro: Will help out whenever I can but I'm there for $DAYJOB and won't be able to say anything about the time at hand in advance. Worked well last year tho, didn't it?
    • Yes, it certainly seemed to. I doubt we'll have a problem having coverage. The schedule is just an aid to ensure we have coverage to answer specific Red Hat customer/partner questions. I suspect we'll have plenty of people willing and able to help out in general. --pfrields 13:33, 3 March 2010 (UTC)


What can you add here?
This is where we'll add demonstrations and hands-on sessions that can use the Fedora room. Remember that every attendee will get a Fedora 13 Live USB stick, and potentially that could be used by participants.
