Thanks for your interest in sponsoring Flock! Flock is a brand new conference for Fedora contributors to come together, discuss new ideas, work to make those ideas a reality, and continue to promote the core values of the Fedora Community: Freedom, Friends, Features, and First.

Fedora is a rich and thriving international Free Software community that produces a popular distribution of Linux every six months. This distribution is the core that is used by Red Hat to create the Red Hat Enterprise Linux product family.

Just like Fedora, Flock will be thinking big. This conference will have four full days of talks, workshops, hackfests and sprints, We want to try to bring in as many of our contributors from around the world as possible, in addition to streaming all of our presentations live over the internet for interactive participation. We hope to have scheduled sessions covering Cloud, Community, Design, Desktop, Embedded, Fonts, Gaming, Hardware, Infrastructure, Marketing, Quality & Testing, Security, and Special Interest Groups.

Most of our money will be going directly to covering travel and lodging costs for our contributors, in addition to catering and events. We hope that you will join us in creating a fantastic new and productive event! We are trying to do a lot on a small budget, so every bit helps!
