Fedora Events: FrOSCamp 2010 - Zurich, Switzerland
FrOSCamp is a multilingual two-day event taking place sometime in early September (TBD) on the premises of the ETH Zurich in Switzerland that is completely free of charge. It's intended to be an exhibition, conference and hackfest featuring free and open source software as well as free content. While various people and projects will show, explain, demonstrate and develop further their works the event is free of any commercial offerings (save snacks and drinks). The event is open to any visitor but it's also strongly encouraged that projects take the chance and exchange ideas and experiences with other projects or hold the project's yearly meeting during the gathering.
While FrOSCamp is being organized for the first time they strive to quickly become the #1 event on those topics in Switzerland and southern Germany. Further they're looking forward to become the top event for the whole community in Europe by allowing the projects to realize their own ideas during FrOSCamp by providing all the space and infrastructure.
Of course this also implies that they'll have a fancy party with creative commons licensed beer and music in the evening of the first event day.

FUDCon Zurich 2010
FrOSCamp 2010 will proudly host FUDCon EMEA 2010. This goes as far as that the unknowing user might not even be able to separate them as there will be a single agenda for both. Of course FUDCon will have Fedora dedicated rooms and FrOSCamp will have their own rooms - there'll be only one shared keynote room tho. Both events take place in the same building at the same time (FUDCon adds the Sunday tho) and share lots of resources and hopefully also a part of the audience. Seeing FrOSCamp and FUDCon participants in some sort of productive exchange would be great! After all Fedora is friends with all other major distributions, upstream, downstream and all other projects oriented towards free and open source.
Even the party on Friday evening is open for everyone from both events.
