It’s my pleasure to share with you that, after the successful release party
of Fedora 14 on December 2010 , within two months we have arranged
another successful Linux event on 12th February, 2011 about the Basic Linux
Introduction with Fedora 14 Desktop.
Venue was the Daffodil International University, more than 50 students was
present in the event. The head of the “Department of Computer Science and
Engineering” of the University, Prof. Dr. Syed Akhter Hossain  was
present and started the event. He announced that, soon the University will
have a standalone Linux laboratory. And after that, all other laboratory
will migrate to Linux.
I would like to thanks to Moniruzzaman Monir , who is the new Fedora
Ambassador of Bangladesh, also studying in Daffodil International
University, and actually helped me arranging the event in this short notice.
Event photos are here . Details event report is on the way.

I see FAmSCo already as an project-wide Instance to go for Budget also
if a Contributor is not a Ambassador - this has to be addressed more
public - i also think that, how FAmSCo did the last selection of the
LATAM FUDCon Location showed that FAmSCo is able to handle project-wide
decission around Events.
Ambassadors from every region have a seat in FAmSCo that shows that
every Region is strong enough to vote their representative into that
Commitee so every Region has a voice here. We have also strong
leadership teams in most regions and yes most often they are Ambassadors
as well ;)
We had discussions about overall future goals within the Fedora Board
also with FAmSCo https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Board_goals_2011
- one of them is addressed as:
*"It is extraordinarily easy to join the Fedora community and quickly
find a project to work on."* Clarified as:
* Example: Quickly find project to work on
* Example: Improving the new user experience
* Example: Mentorship
* Example: Helping users become contributors
* Example: raise the role of the Ambassadors as a first point of
contact for new Contributor on our Media, Website...
A good Ambassador is also a good catalyst - and i want suggest that we
in Ambassadors with FAmSCo as moderator start to think about how we can
bring the ideas that we collected on FUDCon related to that goal to live
- i volunteer to represent our result within the Fedora Board, because i
expect some frictions about that ideas ;)
According to studies from Diana (Martin) Harrelson, who made her
anthropology thesis about us, it is much more easier to join the Fedora
Project if someone already is known to a Contributor, this strongly
supports the Mentoring concept that we already started in our Group.
Where can we work on?
* The Overall Project Join Process gives the Candidate the opportunity
to speak with a real person/contributor before they start choosing a
group (by choice? or by default? ...) start with collecting Ideas would
be great: like Join-Fedora IRC Channel as example?
* Ambassador act as liason to other groups - this is only natural
because i am convinced a good Ambassador is at least CLA+2 ;) and is
necessary to be the taskjuggler for new Candidates
* has to be adressed
If we can figure out, how to support the overall Join Process as a
formal Service, how should this be formalised, addressed, placed...? Can
we handle the expected numbers? What are these numbers?
* Ambassadors are the taskjugglers to assign easy tasks and join
requirements, to redirect low skilled people into very easy tasks and
spare valuable time from busy Contributors.
this makes liasonship and effective communication imperative - i think a
expirienced Ambassador who is also Member of the certain group can
choose from the certain Trac Instances - and also assess what easy means
for the candidate this is different from candidate to candidate.
this is a great opportunity to evolve the Ambassadors Group and i am
excited if people want to take this ideas and can make something from
it. I am on Board! After collecting more ideas here in that list i
suggest to aggregate them (as example in a WikiPage) and make them ready
to propose it on the Advisory-Board list for a project-wide discussion.
