Friday, 7 April 2006. This is the Friday right after LinuxWorld
Conference and Expo.
FUDCon Boston 2006 is the fifth such event globally and the second to be
held in Boston, Mass. USA. FUDCon Boston 2006 will feature an expanded

The Fedora Project is honored to be able to work with Boston University
once again to make this FUDCon a reality. The event will be graciously
hosted once again by the BU Office of Information Technology, and this
year, the BU School of Management gets in on the fun.
Also, as last year, we plan on offering streaming video and audio of all
tracks and sessions. This year, these streams will be higher quality
than previous attempts, as we think we've gotten it right this time. The
streams will be Ogg Theora and should work out of the box for users of
Fedora Core 4 and 5. Check the wiki in the coming weeks for links to
the streaming content.
As spaces are limited we urge all those interested to pre-register by
emailing fudcon-register at fedoraproject.org . Those who pre-register
will have badges available for pickup the day of FUDCon and will receive
preference for sessions which may fill up quickly.
Thanks go out to all who made this possible and have contributed so much
to the massive growth and success of the Fedora community. You know who
See you in Boston!!
