Tweeters: the hash tag for this event is #TF10.
This day-long conference in Massachusetts will give us an opportunity to hear from other Fedora users. More importantly, it will give us an opportunity to talk to each other and swap ideas and thoughts about the way we use Fedora Commons.
Registration is free and includes talks, breakout sessions, and morning and afternoon refreshments. Lunch is not included. The conference will be held in the heart of Boston’s Chinatown, walking distance to many excellent restaurants. Conference registrants will receive updates as the program takes shape.
