The 2023 Virtual Fedora Showcase will bring together Fedora users, community members and individuals interested in learning about the software. This event will feature presentations from Fedora implementers about on-going work, migration efforts or special topics of interest. Along with Fedora, we have invited sister communities to come provide their own programatic updates. This event will also feature community engagement opportunities for any and all users interested.
