L'association Borsalinux-Fr vous donne rendez-vous le samedi 15 février 2014 à la Cité des Sciences à Paris (au 30 avenue Corentin Cariou dans le 19e) pour les Rencontres Fedora 20. Cet événement aura lieu dans le Carrefour numérique de la Cité (au 1er sous-sol) de 14h à 17h et sera suivie par l'assemblé générale de Borsalinux-Fr, association qui fait la promotion de Fedora dans les pays francophones.

Pour cette nouvelle version de Fedora, pleine de nouveautés, ces Rencontres sont l'occasion de découvrir Fedora, sa communauté et d'échanger sur le monde du Logiciel Libre. Lors de cette journée, vous pourrez demander une démonstration et une installation de Fedora 20 mais aussi venir discuter du projet et de son organisation avec la communauté francophone.


The Fedora 20 release party successfully took place the 15th of February in the "Carrefour numérique" of the "Cité des sciences et de l'industrie" in Paris, France. We were about 20 people at the event, certainly owing to the school holidays having started the previous day. There were many fedora ambassadors and contributors (thank you!). We installed some fedora computers, and spoke about Open Source and the Fedora project. We also distributed many Fedora medias, and showed people how to create live USB. Usually we have some conferences, but the Christmas holidays complicated the organization and we decided to have the release party without them.

We also had a chance to meet contributions that we usually see only on IRC but we met personally too few.

The release party was followed by the general meeting of Borsalinux-Fr, the french NPO which promotes Fedora. We are actually looking forward to the Rencontres Fedora 21 (they may take place somewhere other than Paris).
