The Flock 2017 schedule is now available!
Flock 2017 is a more action-oriented event than previous years. This affects the types of session proposals that were accepted. The scheduled slots favor collaborative team working sessions and workshops over team status reports.
Flock will begin the morning of Tuesday, August 29. Sessions will continue each day until midday on Friday, September 1. You should plan to arrive on Monday, August 28 and to depart no sooner than Friday afternoon for the best experience.
|Aug 26||Aug 27||Aug 28||Aug 29||Aug 30||Aug 31||Sep 01||Sep 02||Sep 03|
Registration for Flock is now closed.
Attendees who registered and paid the registration fee by July 24, 2017 are included in the count for items that have to be confirmed in advance. This includes lunch and the t-shirt. If you registered and/or paid after this date, you may not receive all of the benefits of registration.
If you did not register, you are still welcome to attend the conference and events. However, you will not receive benefits such as lunch and a shirt.
The Flock attendees 2017 mailing list is the primary means of communication for attendees of Flock. If you register for Flock, you will be subscribed to this list.
Our main IRC channel for the event is #fedora-flock on irc.freenode.net. Each session room also has a dedicated channel in IRC, and some sessions will be transcribed there.
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.
