The day 1, 2012 May 18th (Friday) started and at that time we were at the hotel lobby surfing internet. There was no wifi in out rooms therefore we managed to get down to the lobby and had it. We went to bed at around 1 am and Danishka (snavin) got collected our t-shirts and goodies.
With short sleep we woke up around 7:00 thanks to the wake up call. Breakfast was offered at the ground floor where the dinning hall was. After the breakfast there was a bus to the venue. We reached UCTI at around 9:00 am and found out we are having another hour. There was wifi access and we are given food coupons and also we got registered.
The FUDcon KL 2012 started with the Christophs’ key note which was about “Leadership in Leaderless Organization” which was a nice sharing and insight towards the organization. There were some interesting questions from the audience inquring about the RedHats’ role with the Fedora project.
The later sessions are bar camped style and there was many proposed sessions from the Fedora contrubutors and from others as well. There was three halls arranged and I remained on the main auditorium. All sessions are limited to 30 minutes.
I had a session on “Google Summer of Code with Fedora” at the end of the day.
Tea was offered at the end of the day to attendees and bus was waiting to drop us to the hotel. We managed to go out to have the dinner. There was a Indian restaurant and we had our dinner there with Danishka, Kalpa, Uditha, Ankur and Praveen. At the end of the day we had a open discussion with the Fedora APAC Ambassadors. There was an interesting discussions and sharing among us. The main topic was how to increase the effectiveness on promoting Fedora and strategies.
