LONDON

Following successful conferences of the Fedora Community in Boston in February and during Linux Tag in Karlsruhe, Germany in June this year, this third conference will further enable Fedora participants in the UK to exchange their views on various topics around the current state of the Fedora Project including infrastructure and development issues.



This London session of FUDCon will feature a series of presentations from prominent members of the Fedora Project, both from Red Hat and the Fedora community on topics from virtualisation (Xen project) and security to the Directory Server as follows:



- Red Hat representative Michael Tiemann, VP of Open Source Affairs and Red Hat fellow Alan Cox will deliver the keynotes

"The success of the first two FUDCon demonstrated a real need for regular face to face discussions within the community, beyond the usual online dialogue. FUDCon remains the ideal platform for this where Red Hat continues to actively participate, as the close co-operation with the community remains a top priority for us.", says Mark Cox, Leader of Red Hats security response team.
