Hi, all --
Of particular interest to North American folks: Over the past couple of
weeks Joseph Smidt and I have discussed an event to be held at the
University of California Irvine in the spring. Originally, I was going to
give a mere presentation at UCI, but after lengthy discussions, it has grown
into something larger.
What Joseph has come up with is Linux UC Irvine -- LUCI -- an event which
will take place in April of this year.
LUCI serves as an introduction of Linux to the students and faculty of the
university, as well as serving as a basis for starting a Linux Users Group
on campus and, as a long-range goal, holding twice-a-year Linux festivals
every year on campus.
While the format for this inaugural event needs to be hashed out -- I'm
imagining a presentation along with demonstrations of Fedora would be a main
ingredient of the event -- and other logistical facets need to be addressed,
I wanted to make everyone aware of this event and ask anyone in the Southern
California area (as well as anyone else who might be interested) who wants
to participate to contact either Joseph or me.
The wiki for this event is at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/LUCI
Thanks, Joseph, for carrying the ball on this project and I'm hoping others
will join up.
This project, of course, is in the planning stages, and Joseph and I can
answer any questions (and, Joseph, if I missed anything, feel free to jump
