Online Fedora UnConference

What is it?

A virtual conference by which Fedora developers and community can interact in preparation for the Fedora 8 release.

Where is it?

The online conference will be making use of the freenode irc network for much of the communication. Some sessions may use teleconferencing for presentation audio. Due to technical limitations, we may be required to limit the size of the call-in audience per presentation. Please check back on this page with specifics on how you can sign-up for audio-enabled presentations.

Types of sessions

  • Presentation ( ~ 1 hour with a period of discussion, online pdf, call-in audio support )
  • Status Report ( ~ 30 minutes with discussion, irc-only )
  • moderated Q & A, discussion ( shoot for 1 hour panel discussion, with question moderation )
  • hackfest ( indefinite period )

Presentation Schedule

Potential Presenters: If you are interested in running a session please, add the session information and send an additional email to me (jspaleta at gmail dot com ) so we can work out any technical details. Please update the time and date of your presentation according to your availability. Please keep in mind that we are attempting to have only one concurrent presentation at a time.
Current Presenters: If you plan to make use of the sip server, please test your client software and hardware with the infrastructure team before using the conference room. Please also update the Location entry for you session below to include the sip conference room you will be using.
