Logistics Budget

We will hold a 3-day FUDCon a few weeks after the release of Fedora 10, to celebrate the occasion and kick off development of Fedora 11.

If you have questions, please contact the event's organizer -- Paul W. Frields.

The FUDCon will include two days of hackfests and a day of BarCamp. Location TBA.

Friday, Sunday hackfest hours: 10:00am-6:00pm
Saturday BarCamp hours: 9:00am-5:00pm

Current Attendees

Please add your name to the list if you will attend. Put an X in the Need Funding column if you need funding to attend. We'll use these answers to help figure out budgeting for the event.

Budget is tight!
We typically cannot fund everyone who wants to attend. You can save quite a bit of money by carpooling or busing, and sharing hotel rooms. We will make every effort to have FUDCon be as affordable as possible.
