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 (need about 1000 CD/DVDs -> ~10 CD/DVD for event)
  • Buildable Fedora USB fill Station
  • Talks (at least one talk for Ambassador)

Covering all Italian events is quite difficult, there are three events type to define a different allocation budget and responsability:

  • event with Ambassadors (At least 1 talk for ambassador on fedora, USB stick refill, CD/DVDs)
  • event without ambassadors, but with people interested to help us (USB stick refill, CD/DVDs)
  • others (only CD/DVDs, if available)

Every ambassador must write a report (using these guidelines), provides photos and, when possible, videos. In other cases report is not mandatory but appreciate.

In every case we wish people collect (general and estimation) statistics data:

  • how many people attend local event
  • how many talks done

This data are important because will be used to made a more detailed report about Linux Day during FAD meeting.
