Mo has offered to create some from her templates, but she needs content to put in it. Can ya'll work up some content regarding the event for her?Has anyone picked up the task of providing this content? Here's something I wrote for the Summit folks for their daily event newspaper. NOTE: Not all of this is going to be relevant in the context of a university flier. I trust people's good judgment to adapt it properly. :-) ''' FUDCon at the Summit While Red Hat executives, developers, partners, and customers are rubbing elbows at the Summit, there's a whole additional event going on simultaneously. You'll find the Fedora community hard at work, brainstorming, planning, and hacking on the future of our free, leading edge, community supported platform. From Thursday to Saturday, we're holding a Fedora Users and Developers Conference (FUDCon) here in Boston. Thursday and Friday we'll be here in the Hynes Center on the third floor, holding all-day “hackathon” sessions extending over many workgroups in several rooms in the FUDCon space. You can stop by, introduce yourself, and meet world-class developers, designers, and system administrators. Ask about the features or platform enhancements they're working on. Heck, you might even want to roll up your sleeves and get involved when you meet some of the brainiacs behind Fedora. On Saturday, we're moving to Boston University, where we'll hold a full day of BarCamp sessions. At a standard conference, some of the most rewarding conversations are those that happen in the hallways between or after sessions. BarCamp makes those conversations the entire focus of the day. Speakers pitch their talks first thing in the morning, and then the entire audience collaborates with them on shaping the schedule for the day. Sound like chaos? Maybe a bit, but out of that chaos comes one of the most energizing, captivating, and informative days of Fedora-related talk imaginable. And when it's all over, we'll adjourn to the ever-popular FUDPub, where the conversations can continue over a beverage of your choice. This innovative and results-centered approach has made FUDCon a can't miss event for hundreds of Fedora community members and open source enthusiasts and professionals worldwide. We hope you'll join us while you're here in Boston and embrace the passionate spirit of free and open source software that Fedora's all about. By the way, we'll also be at the Summit's Fedora booth, located near the Cool Stuff Store. If you bring us a 2 GB or larger USB key, we'll turn it into a portable Fedora 9 Live system you can use with any USB booting computer. And all without messing with your other data on the USB key. No muss, no fuss. So even if you can't fit all the FUDCon innovation in around the other fun and learning at the Summit, you can still take a little souvenir home with you. '''
