#560 FUDCon Pune funding request - jrusnack
Closed: Invalid None Opened 7 years ago by jrusnack.

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.)
    I`d need hotel and flight from Prague to Mumbai (depends, seems like ~450 euro is mean) covered.

  • If we cannot provide a full subsidy, will a partial subsidy be helpful? (Yes/No?)
    This depends on my employers budget and other arrangements (attendance on other conferences), there is some chance that partial subsidy would suffice.

  • If Yes, specify the minimum amount you need covered to facilitate your attendance.
    No idea at this moment.

  • What will you accomplish by being at FUDCon? (Please be as specific as possible, since this is the most important factor in granting requests.)
    I proposed topics for talks which I would like to present, both of which are related to security lifecycle - one targeted to developers, one more towards fedora users. Secondly, Id like to meet with FST team members from India and discuss state of security - from vuln handling, to pushing security features (both seem stale. Discuss Fedora Hardened?) Third, Id like to get community feedback on Ruby Secure Development guide (http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora_Security_Team/1/html/Secure_Ruby_Development_Guide/index.html) and discuss others, e.g. Secure Python guide.

  • 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.
    No time restrictions.

  • Do you need a visa or other official processing before you can attend FUDCon? If so, approximately how long does that processing take?
    Yes, visa is required for me. According to the Embassy of India in Slovak Republic they try to process visa requests within 3 days.

  • Include any additional, relevant information.


I've been asked to include USD: ~450 eur is ~490 USD currently.

Thank you.
I cannot, at this moment its more probable I would not get any subsidy from employer. As I stated, theres a chance, but I would know much later (maybe 1 month before the Fudcon).

I see, okay. Thank you so much for an update.

Thank you. :)

Hello Jan,

We are pleased to inform you that, your request has been accepted for a maximum of $500 + stay.[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.

Please go ahead and book your tickets and attach it to this request too. We will reimburse the same after the conference. Please ensure to retain your boarding passes, as we will need those for reimbursement.

Looking forward to see you at FUDCon. :)

I regret to inform that due to passport issues I won`t be able to attend FUDCon. I have notified relevant people by mail already - I think this ticket can be closed.

Thank you for everything, I appreciate and hope to see you all on next FUDCons in the future !

Thank you for letting us know Jan. We hope to be able to host you in future.
