Hi ambassadors,

I would like to share a few joyful moment after Fedora 18 Beijing
Release Party last weekend. It's the second Fedora themed event in
Beijing after the FAD 2011.

The event was hold in Information Technology Academy of Tsinghua
university. Six "Spherical Cow" related presentations were presented
by long-term project contributors, Red Hat engineers and open source
hackers from other communities. The topics cover i18n, cloud computing
and open source hardware. 50 Fedora 18 LiveDVD 64bit(40 GNOME 10 KDE)
were burned and distributed. Another 20 or so legacy Fedora DVDs were
spread for backward compatibility. Nearly 70 people have participated
the event. Feedback survey were sent to attendances via email. Result
can be expected in a week or so.

One thing worth to mention is that we had a preliminary agreement with
people from GNOME Chinese User Group to hold a Tech Seminar every
month. More specific details will be finalized after Chinese New Year

Report in Chinese, also shared on via FedoraProject Weibo:
