Forgot to mention this last wednesday
last wednesday there was a meeting with harish and other ambassadors
on the possibility of FUDCon APAC,
Harish asked the ambassadors from each country to organize FADs in
this next few months to build up initial community and inject the
culture. FUDCon and FAD is pretty much similar in term of format, the
main difference is scale and expectations.
Basically, heres the format for FAD:
* Barcamp format
* Between half a day to a day
* Get as many people to talk
* Topics can range from Fedora specific talks , to talks about
applications or technologies thats available in Fedora repositories.
Programming topics on Fedora also accepted.
We will need to do one within several months time, i'm thinking of
setting the dateline as 3 months.
Venue wise, theres several options that i can think of, which easy to
cater such event, considering its just a small event.
Target audience may range from normal end user to technical
users/developers, though we should try promoting this event more to
the technical guys because we will need people who can talk (its
barcamp afterall). Normal end users should be targetted nonetheless,
but that is not the priority (a barcamp which nobody talking is boring
Number wise, I'm targeting around 20
Door opens, participant registration starts, we can try providing some
tea/coffee or something (poke RH-MY?). Anybody who want to talk will
need to register their topic and summary, and organizers will put them
up on a wall or something.
Participant who are going to speak will need to start pitching their
talk to the audience. 1 minute is given to give a rough summary on
what they are going to talk about.
Attendees may then vote for talks they want to hear by ticking the
topic posting at the wall.
Organizers will then gather the wall postings and organize them
according to category and popularity, and put them on the schedule
wall, and separate by tracks
Event starts, organizer task is to ensure people doesnt exceed their
