F25 Release Event Samos - Event Report

Ten (10) days ago, celebrating the release of Fedora 25, Zacharias Mitzelos and I organized a Release Event at the University of the Aegean in Samos island, Greece.

I started with an introduction to the distribution and to the project as a whole. I explained the plethora of options being offered to our end users (Fedora Spins, Fedora Labs, Alternate Architectures). I passed the torch to Zacharias, who briefly spoke about Fedora.next before giving an in-depth look at the latest features. We then discussed about contribution opportunities.

An installation and post-installation configuration workshop was scheduled. In addition, a raffle took place and three (3) lucky participants won a Fedora winter hat each - no later than pizzas and refreshments arrived!

All in all, the absence of a wider audience was a bit disheartening. However, the atmosphere was very pleasant, we did had fun and would love to repeat this again.
