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.

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.

What will we do at Flock?

The schedule is now available.

  • 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.
