Fedora 20 Release Party in Hanoi / Report

January 5, 2014

Congratulation Fedora 20,

I am very pleased to announce that the release party of Fedora 20 was successfully organized in Hanoi on 26th, Dec 2013. The event was held at a small coffee restaurant in Hanoi and there was 6 people attending the event. In the event, we had many interesting topics and discussions about Fedora Project, the shape of Fedora in the post-Fedora 20 feature (, and new features inside Fedora 20.


The event began at 6:30 pm. First of all, there was an introduction of participants. I had an introduction about myself and my contributions in Fedora Project. As a Fedora contributor, I introduced to participants about key goals of Fedora release party.

As usual, the first content that I introduced to everyone was about Fedora Project and a brief history of the project. It was so difficult to me to talk about the Project in a short time, so I tried to focus on some key contents such as the missions, the objectives and four foundations of Fedora Project. I also talked about Fedora Community as well as some updated information related to Fedora Community in Vietnam.

Introduction to Fedora Project

The next content that I introduced to everyone was the topic: “ – the shape of Fedora in the post-Fedora 20 feature”. We discussed about the architecture for a More Agile Fedora and explained clearly to everyone about 5 working groups (Fedora Workstation, Fedora Server, Fedora Cloud, Base Design and Environments & Software Stacks). We also began to help participants join into one of the working groups. Everyone seemed to be excited when being known a lot of information about “”.

To continue the event, I introduced the changes and greatest features of Fedora 20. This was an interesting topic which got much attention.

The end of event was an open discussion about Fedora and FOSS. This was the most vibrant part as people were freely talk about their concerns or unclear things. Everyone took some nice photos. Fedora 20 DVDs and stickers were gifts for participants.

To sum up, this was the great event to mark 10 years of Fedora Linux. I hope that there will be more and more people contributing to Fedora in near future.

Total cost of the party is about 50$. All photos of the event could be found here.

Congratulation Fedora 20 again. Thank you and see you soon in next Fedora events!
