How to host a LinuxFest
I'm currently a computer science student in the university of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras.
I recently got permission from my university to host a LInuxfest.
It started as a linux install-fest, but since the focus should be more on linux related information, it was decided to call it a linuxfest.
The problem is... Now what?
What is the correct way of communicating with different linux related companies? (Suse, Mandrake, Fedora, RedHat)
I can contact local companies which use linux, and professors from others universities to make interesting linux related conferences. Also some kind of programming or the like event/competition would be nice.
Any way, anyone out there has done this before?
anyone that can help?
comments or suggestions?
Any info will be appreciated.
