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.
Due to COVID-19, we have decided to cancel Flock 2020 in Detroit. But we still want to do something fun, so we're having Nest With Fedora! The safety of our community is the most important thing, and we look forward to getting everyone together in 2021.
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.
Nest will begin the morning of Friday, August 7. Sessions will continue each day until Sunday, August 9.

This year we are holding Nest with Fedora as a virtual replacement for our normal Flock to Fedora contributor conference. We are taking submissions in the Flock Pagure repository.
As we are able to record all of our content very easily this year, try to think about storytelling when you submit your papers. What kind of story can you tell about your team, project, initiative, or the overall community?
“At Fedora’s contributor conference, Nest with 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, Nest with Fedora, we had 000 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.
Nest with Fedora has five tracks. They are listed below with example submissions.
We will do a rolling deadline this year again with two acceptance dates.
Use the #NestWithFedora hashtags on your preferred social media platforms. Follow @fedora on Twitter for updates.
Our main IRC channel for the event is #fedora-flock on irc.freenode.net.
Telegram is used as a quicker way to communicate during the conference with mobile devices and/or laptops. We have an official group you can join to participate in the conference at @flocktofedora. You can join by clicking this link.
Nest With Fedora will be held on an online platform. Details and registration to come.
