Defense in Depth 2014

MacLean, VA, USA

Wednesday 30 July

Started in 2013, the Defense in Depth workshops bring members of Red Hat's Security Engineering communities to Washington, D.C. for a day of technical sessions and hands-on labs. Attendees learn about the latest developments (both GA, and upstream), the latest projects within the DoD and Intelligence communities, and Red Hat Engineering gets to hear directly from customers on their needs. In 2014, sessions span SCAP, SELinux, Docker, Cross Domain Supercomputing, and generally reflect sharing of current projects effecting government customers.

Flock: Fedora Contributor Conference

Prague, Czech Republic

Wednesday 6 AugustSaturday 9 August

For eight years, Fedora users and developers have gathered at an event named for them, the Fedora Users and Developers conference (FUDCon). But we grew, and it became time for a new approach: Flock. The first Flock conference was held in Charleston, South Carolina in 2013. This opportunity for Fedora contributors to come together, discuss new ideas, work to make those ideas a reality, and continue to promote the core values of the Fedora community will alternate each year between North America and Europe. Thus the 2014 Flock will be held in Prague, Czech Republic.

Fedora and the people who participate in the project encompass so much more than just an interest in Linux. Flock is where you meet with other members of the Fedora community who share whatever your interest is, whether that’s the kernel or the cloud, hardware or UX design. We also want to embrace and invite the growing open hardware community so that we can learn from one another and create better things together.

This year’s Flock will be held August 6-9, 2014. If you weren’t able to join us in 2013, you may still be thinking of the FUDCon barcamp model. Flock, however, operates more like a traditional conference. The Flock schedule is already available. Just like Fedora, Flock will be thinking big. This conference will have four full days of talks, workshops, hackfests and sprints, We have scheduled sessions covering these and other topics:

  • Cloud
  • Community
  • Design
  • Desktop
  • Embedded
  • Fonts
  • Gaming
  • Infrastructure
  • Marketing
  • Open hardware
  • Quality & Testing
  • Security
  • Special Interest Groups.

We hope you’ll join us in Prague. Subscribe to the mailing list to receive updates.

You’ll find your flock here.

Fossetcon 2014

Orlando, FL

Thursday 11 SeptemberSaturday 13 September

Fossetcon is not a GNU/Linux conference, nor is it a *BSD conference. Fossetcon can be more described as a *nix(Unix like) conference that focuses primarily on Free and Open Source Software and the systems that run it - whether it be hardware or software. We are calling all FOSS, FLOSS, and OSS Developers, Students, Teachers, Systems Administrators, Hardware Hackers, Enthusiasts, Newbies and Trolls(trolls need love too) to come out and participate in Fossetcon 2014 in Orlando, FL.

For more details on Fossetcon, see the event website at
