From Fedora Project Wiki

F12 Release Events are organized by Fedora Ambassadors and Contributors to celebrate the new release.

Why join one?

If you are a hobbyist, a student, a developer or a indomitable curious (or both), you will find informations on the new release, demos, speeches and, at last but not least, friends ready to answer all your questions.

If you are interested in contributing in Fedora, a Release Event it's the right place to meet contributors and have the possibility to ask them about their experience, and receive help to join our marvellous community!

If you are still undecided, remember you are invited to take part in a party, with its fun and pleasure sides ;)

Read carefully
