Fedora 9 Release Party in Italy

Yesterday night I spent about 6 hours (between 9.00 pm to 3.00 am!!!) on Fedora 9 Release Party in Lodi, the first official party in Italy (next will be in Florence and Rome by the end of the month).

It was great!

There were about 30/40 people, interested in new features but also interested in “how to join” Fedora Project, and -of course- interested in beer! I, Luca and Gianluca (North Italy Fedora Ambassadors have being present) helped these guys to make their usb live key bootable, solve their questions about Fedora 9 and open their bottles! ;-)

Thanks to FAMSCO budget we could buy a lot of yummy food! And also thanks to moms and grandmothers that cooked cakes and pies with “volunteer” contributions :-)

Last but not least, thanks to Luca Foppiano. He organized all aspects of event: “spamming” by email, do the shopping, make the slides and so on, and all of these stuffs went really really well!

Keep up the good work Luca!
