This is a friendly reminder to those of you out there who might be considering putting in a bid to organize the next great North American FUDCon.
Bids are due by the end of the day (UTC time) on April 8.
FUDCon NA 2011/2012 should be held in the 4th quarter of Red Hat’s fiscal year, because that is the quarter in which budget is allocated. This time frame runs from December 2011-February 2012, though having it during December or January is very much encouraged, since things need to get reimbursed and paperwork needs to get filed by the end of the year, and I’m sure that Max can attest to the fact that this paperwork is not an overnight endeavour.
And now I bring you… informational links!
- FUDCon bid process
- An example of a bid made for last year’s FUDCon
- Current FUDCon NA bids include Olin and Blacksburg/Virginia Tech
- More FUDCon stuff, including “what it is” and “how to organize one” (aka, what you’re getting into if you submit a bid and it is accepted!)
My best wishes go out to those of you submitting bids! It is a lot of hard work putting on a FUDCon, but totally rewarding. 🙂
