From Fedora Project Wiki


This is an educational initiative towards the Fedora Ambassadors to educate and empower them with the required knowledge on the Fedora project and marketing knowledge.

Ambassadors are the front line of the fedora project, they mingle with communities and the public. Therefore knowing how to promote and marketing the fedora project give them added advantage to optimize the outcome. This Educational Initiative which is carried out as a Fedora Classroom Project will guide the new contributors towards a better understanding on how to market the fedora project in the right way, most accurately, its The FAms Way.

Further this can be identified as a discussion panel to share all FAms' experience towards the betterment of each of FAms. Therefore valued experienced FAms are also invited to empower the attendees by sharing their valuable thoughts and experiences.

What is this?

Please feel free to participate the classroom actively. More like a classroom where the instructor speak all the time, this is a kind of platform to share all the ideas and experiences. Facilitators are here to set the direction. The support materials are almost a guide only.
