It's my pleasure and honour to announce the F11 Release Events Contest winners: Kevin Higgins with the Vancouver, WA (USA) release event, Neville A. Cross with the Managua (NI) release event and, finally, Truong Anh Tuan with the Hanoi (VN) release event.
For the Fedora 11 release, FAmSCo wanted to give some of the Ambassadors who organized great release events an opportunity to attend a FUDCon or a FAD in their region, and to meet more of the community face to face. As such, we're going to be providing some sponsorship opportunities to some of the organizers of great Fedora release events. Our decision was based not only on the quality of the event, that sure was the base requirement, we also took care of the experience of the people and the potential they could express in future events and in the whole project, both in a regional and global perspective. For several releases now, Fedora Ambassadors have been organizing release events all over the world, becoming a natural component of our activity and showing us the maturity of the project. The purpose of these events is to promote the new release of Fedora, to raise awareness among local communities, and to educate users and developers on the most important features of the release. These release events are low-cost and are therefore easy to scale worldwide. As a means of encouraging these events, we have occasionally offered some sort of reward for the best events. FAmSCo wants to thank all the participants for their amazing job: stay sure that we will continue to encourage it. For future Fedora releases, we hope to do the same thing, and to spread the sponsorship around so that folks all over the world have opportunities to attend FUDCons. It is a high priority for us that we continue to grow Fedora Ambassadors all over the world. We are proud to have such great people on this marvelous team! Stay tuned On Behalf of FAmSCo Francesco Ugolini p.s. A special thanks goes to Joerg Simon for his detailed review of all the events. -- fedora-announce-list mailing list email@example.com https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-announce-list
