Fedora by Night - The day after

Yesterday night was a Fedora Night! “Fedora by Night” attracted a lot of Linux enthusiasts from Lodi and near zones.

Thanks to LOLUG for help, availability and visibility.

Night started with quick introduction by Davide Cerri about LOLUG, Linux and other useful stuff, continued with my presentation about Fedora Project and the Community behind Fedora, and closed by Simone Pucci with a rapid overview about how Fedora is built and managed.

Questions and answers time was pretty exciting. More then 40 minutes of questions from the crowd about Fedora and the future of Linux (Microsoft, Novell and Mono/.NET involvements were the main delicate issues we discussed).

Thanks to all people who helped me and Lolug to organize this event! I hope to see now and again something like that with more and more attendees!



Then, beer@pub! :-)

    Thank you for that review, it’s very interesting. I also like to see mizmo’s posters hanging on a wall…first time I actually “see” them like this.

    It looks like you’ve done a great job, congratulations on this!

    Eh sad to know there was a Fedora event 20km from where I live and I wasn’t aware… Well I wish you enjoyed your Fedora night so far…

    Wait, did I see girls at a Linux conference?

    Yes, you did! We had a lot of girls during Fedora by Night! Yes, I know, it sounds a bit strange, but I’m really happy about this “upgrade” in attendees quality ;-)
