Ithaca, NY Please join colleagues on July 20, 2010 from 9 AM-5 PM for a no-cost, one-day regional Fedora conference.
In a tough economy, it’s especially important to make sure we stay in touch with our local colleagues in the Fedora Commons community. This day-long conference in Massachusetts will give us an opportunity to hear from other Northeast Fedora users. More importantly, it will give us an opportunity to talk to each other and swap ideas and thoughts about the way we use Fedora Commons.
