#72 Funding Request: mikedep333 travel DevConf.CZ
Closed: Complete 3 years ago by bex. Opened 3 years ago by mikedep333.

Hi everyone,

My talk for DevConf.cz, "Managing a fleet of Linux desktops with Ansible", has been accepted. DevConf.cz will cover the hotel cost, but not travel.

I am also a Fedora Ambassador in NA, and will serve as one. I am also a packager, and hope to learn from others.

Flying from my local EWR airport to Prague costs as little as $444 for long/many layovers, or $620 for 1 layover.

(Prague is much cheaper than flying to Brno directly.)

I am humbly requesting $720 for travel:
- Flight tickets estimated at $623 for the less-traveled departure days of Thursday and Monday
- $34.50 for round-trip commuter train ($17.25 each way - Princeton Jct to EWR)
- $25.50 for parking at commuter rail station ($5/day + $0.50 transaction fee) (parking at airport is extremely expensive)
- $40 for local transport from Prague airport to Brno (estimated costs other than main train cost)

If less funding can be provided, I will still attend. I will accept either long/many layovers, or spend some of my own money, or both.

Thank you,
Mike DePaulo

Lets work on getting the event report and budget ticket in ASAP so we can pay it in this FY please.

I'll do those things this Sunday.

Sorry; I've been crazy busy with having accepted my new job and apartment shopping.

Reimbursement ticket
(I think that's what @bex meant by "budget ticket").

I really like your event report @mikedep333 thank you for posting it.

I believe this ticket can be closed. The budge ticket is in progress. If i got this wrong, please reopen.
