With LinuxWorld Boston 2006 now over, FUDCon Boston 2006 is now taking place today. The FUDCon at Boston University is a single-day event that focuses on covering all sorts of Fedora related topics for developers, end-users, and applications. Some of the various topics include Network Manager, Eclipse, Pogo Linux, Xen, yum, mySQL, MythTV, Xiph, D6, and U6. Finally, the State of the Fedora address will wrap up the event this afternoon. While on the Wiki the event will also be simulcast over the Internet, it will not be live. As nothing has worked its way down the announcement list yet, we asked Greg DeKoenigsberg of Red Hat for additional information. He says they will probably be able to get some video, and it will only be offered over BitTorrent after the event has already taken place. Thus, more information to come soon.
