Speakers

Speakers, add your name, topic, and link here:

Date and Time Location Speaker Topic Link
Sun, Mar 5, 11:30-12:30 Ballroom A Clint Savage Linch-Pin https://github.com/CentOS-PaaS-SIG/linch-pin/blob/master/presentations/introducing-linch-pin.pdf
Fri, Mar 3, 10:00A-12:00P Ballroom C Perry Rivera/Alex Acosta Fedora 25 Highlights, How You Can Help Fedora, Work Session and General Meetup Highlights, Contributing, Work Session

Booth

The exhibition hall has traditionally been open Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

bex: I believe that OSAS from Red Hat will be exhibiting here as well. Should we work with them to increase our booth presence through cross-promotion? What are the planned booth activities and points of emphasis? We were able to get a monitor in the booth and show off modularity at LinuxCon in Berlin and that seemed to draw some traffic (I'd check with jeischma and crew). Putting this here as I don't see who the event owner is on this wiki. I can join a meeting to expand on this and serve as an OSAS liaison.
