Someone else can probably do it better than me, since the only one I
went to was the one at SCALE three years ago:
but there was also one the year after that:
and at least one before:
Looking through https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Category:FAD
, a few more
jump out at me:
(and 2010, 2011, and 2012)
(and 2011 and 2012)
A quick look at these links (and I do mean quick!) seemed to show that
most of these events were what I think of as a FAD. A place where
Fedora Contributors get together to work on a Fedora issue. I
understand that some people use the word FAD more expansively, but the
only one of those I seemed to see was FISL12.
From a branding perspective we need to think about whether the word FAD
is doing too much work by trying to represent two somewhat different
concepts (contributors working on Fedora vs user oriented events).
Do we have any other examples of Fedora user oriented activities being
colocated with a larger event/activity to draw in new users?
