Invitation Letter_ College
We take great pleasure in inviting your organization to attend and participate in FUDCon APAC 2015, to be held at MIT COE from 26 to 28 June 2015.
What is FUDCon
Fedora is a Linux distribution and a development platform, and FUDCon is the Fedora User's and Developer's Conference, a major free software event held in various regions around the world, annually one per region. The 2015 APAC edition of FUDCon will be held in Pune.
FUDCon is a potpourri of events. Some of the main attractions are -
- Technology introductions and deep dives
- Hands-on workshops and sessions where like-minded people get together to discuss a project/technology
- Hack-fests where contributors work on specific initiatives, ranging from packaging, writing features to UI mock-ups.
Bar Camps - And 'un-conferencing' avenue, where people interested in a wide range of issues/topics can come together to share and learn. The speakers will pitch the topics they are interested in discussing in the morning of the event. Anyone eager to listen in or participate can attend the session at the allotted time slot. The most exciting part here is that anybody can stand up and talk in front of the large audience and share their views on the topic of their interest.
FUDCon has always been a high quality event where Fedora contributors from different parts of the world converge together to bounce ideas off each other.
Fedora has the best people, professionals and developers working for it and they all collaborate on events like FUDCon. We have delegates flying in from far places to come and talk to our audience about Fedora, the future of Fedora (which is the upstream of a premier Enterprise Operating system). Thus, FUDCon would be a great opportunity to give your students and staff a dive into the Open Source world and interact with some of the brightest minds in the industry.
