Since some folks around FOSS RIT are involved with the Fedora community,
I thought I would share this opportunity on our mailing list. The annual
Fedora Project contributor conference is in August. Anyone who has an
interest, I would encourage you to consider submitting a talk or
workshop for the conference.
If you're interested but not sure where to start, feel free to drop me a
ping and I can help brainstorm with you. :-)

Call for Papers for Flock to Fedora 2018
Flock is the Fedora Project's annual contributor-focused conference. It
alternates between European and North American locations, and this year
will be in Dresden, Germany from August 8-11.
What will we do at Flock?
* Communicate the Fedora Strategy. Everyone in Fedora should understand
and feel well-aligned with the project's goals, both long-term and
tactical. We should all understand the messaging we're using to attract
new users and contributors.
* Plan the Next Strategy. This strategy doesn't come from the top down,
or from thin air, and it's not dictated by our sponsors. It comes from
the community. Because we're so big and distributed, Flock can't be the
only place where we get new ideas, but it is a summit where we present,
learn about, and discuss them.
* Build Community Connections and Engagement. We do amazing work as a
global project, but there's no substitute for direct human interaction.
Flock helps tie us together. In-person discussion, collaboration, and
fun social events help us function better on IRC and mailing lists
throughout the year.
Details about how to submit and what kinds of talks can be submitted can
