Fedora Mini-conf at Linux Conference Australia 2008


Monday, January 28, 2008


I'm excited to announce that my proposal for a Fedora Mini-conf has been accepted! The mini-conf will be held as part of 2008. The aim of this mini-conf is to allow Fedora users and developers to come together to teach and learn. For the users, it will be a great way to learn the variety of tools and technologies that are available. For the developers, come and feel inspired, and start hacking away!

Fedora schwags will be given out during the mini-conf or at the rego desk.


Note.png 2008 will be held at the University of Melbourne , Australia (map ). The mini-conf will be held at Old Arts - Theatre C. The LCA team wrote a page about how to get there, what to do and eat when you get there. Check it out!
