Welcome to Flock

Welcome to Flock 2016 in Krakow! Now in its fourth year, Flock is a fun and productive event which brings the Fedora community together to discuss new ideas — and to put those ideas into practice in hackfests and workshops. As we continue to grow the Fedora operating system, our connections and relationships grow as well, and the in-person connections made at Flock help sustain our "Friends" foundation throughout the year as we interact through IRC, email, and other digital links.

At Flock, you can met and reconnect with other contributors from all parts of the project, from low-level kernel hacking to containers to documentation and design. Whether this is your first time here or whether you're an old hand, we're very glad to have you here and value your participation.

I want to extend a special welcome to $KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Next year, Flock will return to the USA; Bids are now open for 2017. For more information see https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Flock_bid_process

If you were subsidized to come to Flock, we ask that you add yourself to Fedora Planet and write at least one blog post about the event. We'll be asking for your links later.

microblogging

Microblogging is a great way to promote Flock as well as Fedora. You'll also see updates that way and find out where interesting things are happening. Use the hashtag #flocktofedora and follow @fedora on identi.ca, Twitter, Facebook (facebook.com/TheFedoraProject), and Google+ (gplus.to/fedoraproject).

IRC

Our main IRC channel for the event is #fedora-flock. If you are taking notes for a session, please report the session name and channel to that channel. If you are using Gobby or Etherpad, note that in the main channel as well. Each conference room's channel is #fedora-flock-<roomnumber>, for example,

  1. fedora-flock-room1 for room 1.

Code of Conduct

Flock is a conference that brings together members of the Fedora community, new and old, professional and volunteer, from all over the world. Diversity is one of our huge strengths, but it can also lead to communication issues and unhappiness. Attendees are required to be considerate and respectful of each other. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Refraining from rude behavior
  • Refraining from any sort of harassment or discrimination (based on ethnic background, religion, gender, sexuality, body shape, disability, geographic location, sports team, preferred operating system, or anything else for that matter)
  • Obeying local laws

Attendees who are in violation of this policy may be subject to removal and banning from Flock (and future Fedora events). Whether an attendee is in violation is at the sole discretion of the conference staff. Anyone with a possible concern relating to the code of conduct is encouraged to either email the Flock conference staff (flock-staff@fedoraproject.org) or talk directly to a Flock conference staff member. Flock staff members have a special "STAFF" identifier on their event badges.


Need Help?

Emergencies

In an emergency, call 112. This is the emergency services number in Poland (similar to 911 in the United States). If you can, also have someone contact an event organizer, but in case of a fire or health emergency or anything that could require emergency services please call 112 first.
