Hi Tuan, Siddhesh and All,
First of all, you mentioned that FUDCon PP will be held together with
Is there any "line" to separate them? or will they be mixed up in any means?
In short, in your FUDCon plan, what will be separated and what will be
BarCamp Phnom Penh usually gathered the most participants among other ICT
events in Cambodia. They gathered at least 3500 participants every year.
This is a big number for us to start with and to attract participants to
I do hope we will have separated rooms since we pay $1,000 for that venue.
you got the details?
Yeah, we do have one big hall (great one) and another separated room,
please see the picture in bidding link.
You are planning for 100 participants, but travel subsidies are for 12 ones.
Who are the left 88 ones? Did you think about it?
It does not mean, that everyone will spend out of 500$ for their flight
tickets, Ambassador from Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, India and
China each of them will spend less than 500$ if we book ticket in advance,
so we can save more rooms for other. I think we had 9 Ambassadors sponsored
from other countries to attend FUDCon Beijing last year. Rooms are
available for those want to take parts, so they can allocate budget from
their lines to pay for flight and we will support the rooms, because rooms
will also cost a lot of money too.
In short, even FUDCon is held with BarCamp, how do you attract people to
into FUDCon and Fedora sessions?
BarCamp is a parallel conference, so people could decide to attend any
topic they would like to hear, I bid that we will might have more
participants in the big hall, when we could design our topic not to be
sound too technical, but simple for both users and developers to
understand. However, it is really depend on the speakers as well, if we do
have good topics, good speakers, of course why not? Actually, 3500
participants will fill every of the rooms they have during the BarCamp
A lot of people here are using ubuntu, when there is no ubuntu community
exist yet, so I think they would love to join Fedora, if there is direct
opportunity with the global/local community. I am keen to have bigger
community. And of course, there is a university in Phnom Penh teaches
Fedora, and he is also the organizer of FUDCon Phnom Penh, he will also
announce to his students to attend and get to understand more about Fedora
Project and its community works. Sabay is a media company, I guess they
could write an article or advertise our event through their digital ads. So
that people will know that we are doing the FUDCon within the BarCamp.
You are planning budget is about $17k USD (while usual budget for FUDCon is
about $10k USD . Have you got any plans to ask for more funds from other
Like Siddhesh had mentioned, the budget for FUDCon Pune have raised to
$15,000, so the remaining budget is around 2K, but Sabay and Ezecom and
others tech companies might would like to sponsor us if it is not in cash,
probably in kind contribution, so we can relocate the budget we have from
Fedora to do other things.
Last but not least, you are planning FUDCon on October 2016. I personally
it is not a convenience time because it is close to FUDCon LATAM and Flock
we can miss some people (FUDCon APAC is usually held on May or June)
It is not about preparing time as well. Since we changed the process to
next FUDCon location, the winner would have a year to prepare.
Because of BarCamp Phnom Penh is usually held in late of September and
early October. To my own personal recommendation that if we do FUDCon
separately from BarCamp Phnom Penh, it is hard to attract more people to
attend the whole event alone. We need to have this year first with the
BarCamp to build a bigger community, and we can go off alone, when our
brand is actually built within the community. Flock is in August. I don't
think everyone is sponsored or make themselves to FUDCon LATAM, so they may
apply FUDCon Phnom Penh.
In term of organizing team, we actually will recruit more volunteers to
help on logistics and stuff.
Last but not least, we hope you all consider FUDCon Phnom Penh for 2016.

While the budget is set at $10,000, there is breathing room based
on actual spending. We made it clear from the outset that we were
expecting to spend $15000 from the Fedora budget for the current
FUDCon and there haven't been objections to the additional spend
So that leaves the remaining $2000.
