In a normal year, we’d be getting ready for my favorite event: Flock to Fedora. But as we’re all aware, this is anything but a normal year. Despite this—or perhaps because of this—we still want to bring the community together to share ideas, make plans, and form the bonds that put the Friends in Fedora. Instead of Flocking to Fedora, we’re going to Nest With Fedora. I’m happy to announce that the Call for Participation is now open.

Nest With Fedora features five tracks. I included a few examples for each one, but don’t limit yourself. What do you want to share with the Fedora community?

  • General Ideas
    • Keynotes
    • Team meetings
    • Panel sessions
  • Ask the Experts
    • Live sessions with experts and moderators taking questions (ex. IoT, editions, modularity, design)
  • Community
    • Themed social hours (ex. bring your pet, costume party)
    • Diversity themed sessions (ex. cooking across the world, how do you Fedora?)
  • Games
    • Gaming SIG session
    • Interactive game sessions (ex. Virtual Pictionary, bingo, trivia)
    • Nintendo Switch meetup and Friend code exchange
    • Asynchronous game sessions (ex. Minecraft)
  • Hackfests/Workshops
    • Team work sessions
    • Project hackfests

Submit your proposals by opening a ticket in the Flock repo on Pagure. As in years past, we’re doing a rolling deadline process with acceptance dates of Monday 20 July and Monday 27 July. As a reminder, Nest will happen 7 August through 9 August.

On behalf of the review committee, I’m looking forward to your proposals. If you have any questions, please email
