Coming up this weekend, the 2016 NASA Space Apps Challenge is happening.
It has events all across the world, but I will be attending as an
Ambassador over the weekend at the Rochester Institute of Technology in
Western New York.
If you are local to the area or think you could spare the time / travel
money, you're welcome to attend. The event will have around 40-60 people
there. Fedora-specific information is on the wiki. General event details
are below in this email.
