#544 Funding request for Giriraj Sharma
Closed: Invalid None Opened 7 years ago by girirajsharma.

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

Tell us the following:

  • What do you need covered? (Please estimate the costs in USD: hotel $X, travel $Y.)
    Travel + Accommodation (Hotel) = 200$

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


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


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

The principle reason is to present my talk/workshop session as recommended by Redhat JBoss Security Community leads. Secondly, it would be very awesome to meet, learn and interact with open source hackers from all around the globe. This would enable me to deep dive into what are the technical means one can contribute to fedora to make it more and more better and become an active contributor to the fedora community.

I have also submitted a talk and will be most probably delivering upon Federated Identities in OpenSource (Redhat JBoss Picketlink and KeyCloak Security Middlewares) with principle focus on OAuth 2.0 workflows.

  • 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.

DEL -> PNQ : AI-851, Desired departure : 26 June, 5:00 AM
PNQ -> DEL : 6E-304, Desired departure : 29 June, 7:40 AM

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


  • Include any additional, relevant information.

I am an active open source developer at Redhat Jboss Community and in close contact with Jboss Picketlink and Keycloak community developers. In addition, I wish to be a part of fedora community and wish to contribute by all possible and likely means in technical domain starting from a newbie and continuing to be an active fedora member.

Hello Giriraj,

We regret to inform you that your request for the travel + accommodation subsidy has been declined.[1] We would not be able to help you this time. Hope it works out better next time.

Thank you.

Hello Giriraj,

We are pleased to inform you that, your request has been accepted partially for stay only.[1] Stay is provided on the twin sharing basis for the duration of the conference, ie. check-in on 25th June and check-out on 29th June. Expenses for any other days shall be levied on the occupant(you). In case, you need a room for yourself, you'd need to bear half of the room fare.

Looking forward to see you at FUDCon! :)

Being a student, it won't be easy or possible for me to bear whole of travel expenses. As my talk isn't selected for main track, I had plans to showcase redhat (jboss) security middlewares (keycloak, picketlink) at the barcamp. But, I can understand the tight budget constraints too.
So, Thanks for accommodation but I am unsure about my presence at FUDCon. I hope it works out better next time :)
