We might be able to represent Fedora on the next (second) Prague Maker
See pics from the latest (first) event:
The important question is: What would we show/do/present there and how?
Have any of you ever did a Fedora booth on a maker event?
The idea is simple: "Fedora is awesome for Makers" - however how to
present that on a booth? The competition (other booths) is very
appealing for visitors.
Thanks for any tips.
I have participated as an exhibitor with a local Linux Users Group at
the Rochester Maker Faire for the last 3-4 years. I think interactive
projects are essential since many of the people who come to our booths
were children/teenagers aged 7-18.
Many projects we exhibited were Raspberry Pi projects, some running
Fedora. I think for a Maker Faire, it isn't enough to talk about Fedora
alone because it isn't the right audience. We had a handful of people
come up to us who knew what Linux is, and then the majority of other
folks who come up are interested only in our projects. I don't know if
Prague's audience will be different, but it might help to first consider
the type of people that will attend and how you can tailor Fedora's
message to that audience.
I liked Sirko's project suggestions. For more ideas, check out the Magic
Mirrors and Spy Pi projects as ideas from my write-up of the 2017
