Last week, Saturday, 11 August 2013, Fedora Indonesia was successfully
organize FAD Padang 2012 at BLC Telkom Padang Venue.
This is was the first FAD in Indonesia since Fedora Community in Indonesia
at 2008, so after we make changes with the new and active contributor we
start to figure out to create more Fedora event in Indonesia to spread
Fedora spirit in Indonesia.
This FAD is not only all about FAD but also we combine with Release Event,
Installfest and Geek Fasting Break at the end of event. Here our full
We have 15 crew and volunteers, they are also Fedora Indonesia Contributor
(we got help from Local LUG, like KPLI-Kelompok Pengguna Linux Indonesia
and Indonesia Backtrack Team) to make sure the event run successfully
and 4 speakers who gives talk/workshop/discussion/demo, 2 of them are from
Fedora Contributor, me(jurank_dankkal) and Michel Alexander
Salim(salimma), and another else are from LUG-KPLI.
Our participant who are register on the web around 162 but the folks who
are coming around 90, although in the month of Ramadan and the holiday
of the school, but the participants still follow the spirit of the event start
from 9am until at the ends of event 8pm who covered with geek fasting break.
Here the things that we discovered, learn, and some advises/suggestions
during FAD Padang 2012 :
- Our participants are very interested to using Fedora as their operating
system, is evidenced by the many of participant interested install their
machines witth Fedora installfest session on the spot, and also many of
them have questions about fedora.
- Our crew is also a Fedora user and fedora Indonesia contributor, like
bugzilla and localization team, in the evening after the event we also held
a gathering to discuss the progress fedora in West Sumatra and Indonesia as
- We have problem with Fedora CD Shipping around 200 using FedEx that
Harish in Singapore send it to Indonesian, we must to have import license
to complete requirement from Indonesian Ministry of Industry because FedEx
people said the CD price are $74, so we hope for the next shipping we can
use POS to send it to Indonesian.
