Introduction to Fedora =
ABSTRACT: This deck is for anyone who wants to present a general overview of what Fedora is, why it is special, and how its community operates. Useful for Fedora Ambassadors to use as-is, or as an inspiration for their own talks.
TARGET AUDIENCE: People who have heard of free software, Red Hat, or Fedora, but who have never actively participated in a community. Users of OSS who need a little bit of encouragement in order to become contributors.
Community Architecture for Fun and Profit
ABSTRACT: A talk focusing on the community building strategies and tactics implemented within Red Hat and the Fedora Project. This talk has many specific examples of the challenges of community building, and the benefits available for any business in adopting a community-first mindset as its model.
NOTE: This is a more "advanced" talk, with lots of information provided by the speaker that is not written on the slides. Make sure you are comfortable delivering Introduction to Fedora before you give this talk.
TARGET AUDIENCE: People who are already members of OSS communities, and who want to go into detail about how create, grow, and maintain them. Especially useful to folks who have community leadership responsibilities. This talk is part of Red Hat's New Hire Orientation.

There is a version for general audiences and developer audiences, with an emphasis on Java and OpenJDK.
TARGET AUDIENCE: People with an existing interest in open source, free culture, and collaborative communities, who may be using or contributing to open source already. Developer version is focused primarily on Java developer but can be adjusted for other languages.
