#354 Funding request for Chris Tyler
Closed: Invalid None Opened 10 years ago by ctyler.

Please set the "Component" below to the correct event for your request.

BACKGROUND: While I had not originally intended to be at FUDCon EMEA, I was invited to participate in a panel at the Open World Forum, which overlaps and is co-located with day 1 of FUDCon, and it probably makes sense to attend both events. My travel budget for the year was already allocated when this opportunity arose (rather suddenly), so I'm applying for funding for FUDCon accommodation.

Tell us the following:

  • What do you need covered? (Please estimate the costs in USD: hotel $X, travel $Y. Please note that for FUDCon Paris, hotel costs per person (in a shared room) are EUR122, or approximately $150 USD.)

Hotel during FUDCon - EUR122/USD$150.

  • If we cannot provide a full subsidy, will a partial subsidy be helpful? (Yes/No?)

Yes (probably!)

  • If Yes, specify the minimum amount you need covered to facilitate your attendance.

Still awaiting word from other funding sources, so I'm not sure at this point.

  • What will you accomplish by being at FUDCon? (Please be as specific as possible, since this is the most important factor in granting requests.)

There is growing interest in the Fedora ARM project in the EMEA region. As a participant in the Fedora ARM project (my research group operates the Fedora ARM koji buildsystem and is working on the RasPi remix) I would like to coordinate with these Fedora contributors.

Specifically, I would like to have a test/hack session on the Raspberry Pi remix, and a discussion about EMEA-specific needs and interests in the Fedora ARM Secondary Architecture.

  • If you are requesting airfare, include complete flight information such as flight numbers, desired departure and arrival airports, and times. Also let us know if you have specific time restrictions.

Airfare (YYZ-CDG) should be covered by other funding.

  • Do you need a visa or other official processing before you can attend FUDCon? If so, approximately how long does that processing take?

No, Canada is apparently on the visa waiver list for the Schengen Region.

  • Include any additional, relevant information.

I will be representing the Fedora ARM project and talking about teaching Open Source at the OWF, Oct 11-13.

Hi Chris, I am glad you can join us.
I am not yet aware about an ARM talk at the OWF, who will be the speaker? I can find your name on the basecamp application. But if you're going to give a talk, you can ask for subsidies also from the OWF organization (send me an email for more information with your plan fees for example).

That would be awesome if you can define prepare some ARM schedule, I will work with you on that.

So you need 3 nights. If you plan to stay on the same hotel, I will suggest you to book soon (for 3 or more nights, as you need for the OWF+FUDCon), as canceling a reservation is free of charge on the hotel that we have selected (checking is better of course than trusting me..)

For the 3 nights that should not be a problem, we will handle this request at next funding approval meeting (on Thursday, 20UTC).

At the tonight meeting we approved your hotel funding request.
Please find a roommate soon. We can't guarantee free rooms anymore.

Also don't hesitate to write directly to fudcon-emea@fpo if you have any questions about the FUDCon or the OWF.

And yes, your help will be really useful to plan something about ARM. If you can help me writting an announcement for Linaro/ARM, it could be great.

Hi Chris, we plan to have hackfest(13th)−barcamp(14th)−hackfest(15th).
Could tell me what you want to coordinate for the ARM contributors, during those days? (how many sessions, the subject...)
Oh, don't be afraid I am not asking you to hold us for the whole 3 days :)

I am going to set the schedule soon (and design it also..)


Hi Chris,

Did you find a roommate?
Do you have the hotel booked? If not we are quite on hurry here, please confirm soon to me at shaiton@fpo.
If the hotel is booked, please send me the reservation number and the associated name to get Robyn paying on arrival.


Chris - I have no idea what I need to reimburse you for, if anything. Can you detail / add receipts to this ticket?

This ticket is being closed because the FUDCon event to which it applies already happened. If this is an error, please accept my apologies, and feel free to reopen the ticket.
