Fedora 19 was released on July 2, 2013. It contained many latest stable version of development results from free and open source community at the time.
F19 is amazing that it delivers GNOME 3.8 by default which deals with input method integration better than 3 while that is the key part of user experience for Asian users.
Fedora community is not big in Taiwan yet. The first ambassador in Taiwan, Cheng-Chia Tseng had arranged F17 and F18 release parties in Taichung. And this time, two ambassadors in Taiwan, Cheng-Chia Tseng and Freedomknight, proposed the idea to organize a release party in the capital of Taiwan - Taipei City. It is going to help spread Fedora spirit in Taipei.
We discussed a few cafes for choices, and find GozCafe might be the most appropriate place for this 20-person event. The cafe provides a projector. The site renting fee also covers providing some cakes and drinks to attendees. Freedomknight help deal with the booking issue with GozCafe. People feel comfortable and easy within GozCafe.
At first, Freedomknight introduced the release party and started the event. After the opening of the event, people were asked to give self-introduction to know each other more.
