What is Flock?

Flock is the Fedora Project's annual contributor-focused conference. It typically alternates between European and North American locations. The conference provides a venue for face to face meetings and conversations. It is also a place to celebrate our community.

What will we do at Flock?

  • Communicate the Fedora Strategy. Everyone in Fedora should understand and feel well-aligned with the project's goals, both long-term and tactical. We should all understand the messaging we're using to attract new users and contributors.
  • Plan the Next Strategy. This strategy doesn't come from the top down, or from thin air, and it's not dictated by our sponsors. It comes from the community. Because we're so big and distributed, Flock can't be the only place where we get new ideas, but it is a summit where we present, learn about, and discuss them.
  • Build Community Connections and Engagement. We do amazing work as a global project, but there's no substitute for direct human interaction. Flock helps tie us together. In-person discussion, collaboration, and fun social events help us function better on IRC and mailing lists throughout the year.

Who comes to Flock?

While Flock is open to anyone, the majority of talks at Flock are focused on existing contributors and those looking to increase their involvement. There is almost no solely user-focused content.


The call for participation will open soon.

“At Fedora’s contributor conference, Flock to Fedora, the Fedora Design team closed 10 tickets, updated their wiki/docs page, and came up with a strategy for the next year.”

“At Fedora’s contributor conference, Flock to Fedora, we had 100 participants show up with their pets!” (Social hour, bring your pet! Gather pet photos and create an album to go along with that story)

As we are able to meet with our teams on a regular basis online, try to focus work sessions on strategy and plenary work for the upcoming year.
