FUDCon F11 Boston -- News Update!
* All of our location information is confirmed -- we will be holding
the conference as predicted, at MIT in the Sloan Building. There
will be plentiful space for hackfests and BarCamp sessions over the
course of the weekend.
* FUDPub will be held at Flat Top Johnny's on Saturday night (January
10) from 6:00-10:00pm.
* The wiki remains open for registration. Please remember to note
your shirt size, whether you prefer vegetarian fare for lunch on
Saturday, and any other important information (in the "Comments"
* The hotel group rate is good until DECEMBER 19. After that, it will
be up to the hotel to decide whether or not to extend their offer of
$99/night. So sign up now!
And here's some further news to sweeten the pot -- the One Laptop Per
Child and SugarLabs communities will be joining us for FUDCon, to
address areas of common interest like packaging and building for these
unique projects, and to talk to Fedora community members about getting
involved. This should make FUDCon a very exciting event and I look
forward to seeing everyone there who can make it!
