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!
