What is a release party?

Fedora Release Parties are virtual, user-focused conferences where the community comes together to talk about what’s new in the latest release of Fedora and where we’re going for future releases. Topics we’ve covered include the process of working through implementing a change and roadmaps for what different teams want to do next in Fedora. Sometimes there are updates from Fedora-associated groups who have something to share, like Amazon or Lenovo. We also have breaks for socials where we can talk to each other in video calls (you don’t have to share video or speak if you don’t want to). If you have an interest in a behind-the-scenes look at your favorite distro, come learn and hang out with the contributors who make it!

Where will it happen?

In previous years we used Hopin to run virtual conferences, but the Fedora 40 Release Party will be the first that we do in Matrix! We’ve wanted to do this since the Creative Freedom Summit showed how it could be done a couple of years ago. This is a step that allows us to lean more on open source for outreach.

However, we also want to be open in another way, and that’s with livestreaming. We will be streaming the talks on our Fedora Project YouTube channel. That way anyone can watch and the streams will be immediately available afterwards!

Please register for the release party! Once you do and provide your Matrix ID, the organizers will invite you to the Matrix channel and we’ll be on our way to a great celebration.

We hope to see you there!

    Compared with previous release parties, the topics are not as varied as the ones I attended (F34 onwards). I would have expected balanced topics around new features and changes, and people behind it. The agenda is skewed towards a couple of working groups and being politically correct.

    No full agenda published as of 18 May, less than 6 days away. Poor planning..

      I’m curious what parts do you feel are skewed to being “being politically correct”?
