Fedora Events: LinuxDay 2008 in Italy

When and Where

Linux day is an event opened to every linux distribution, we want to support fedora with talks, gadget and new innovation stuff.

  • Saturday, Oct 25th
  • All around Italy (see map here)



  • Spread fedora during this linux day: an organized fedora support during italian linux day has never been done since 2001
  • Recruit new ambassadors

What we want to provides?

  • CD/DVDs (we probably need at least 1000 CD/DVDs, si ~10 CD/DVD for )
  • Buildable Fedora USB fill Station
  • Talks (at least one talk for event where will be a fedora ambassador)

To cover all Italian events is too difficult, there will be different type of events:

  • with Ambassadors (At least 1 talk for ambassador on fedora, USB stick refill, CD/DVDs)
  • without ambassadors (USB stick refill, CD/DVDs)
  • Other events when people don't want to help or support fedora (only CD/DVDs)

Every ambassador will provide a report and, when possible, photos and videos. The second and third event's type will haven't the mandatory of a report.
