Fedora Hatch Cork, Ireland - 13th & 14th July 2022!

Hi Fedora community!

I am very pleased to share with you all that the Fedora Project has approved funding for a Fedora Hatch event to be hosted in Cork, Ireland on Wednesday 13th & Thursday 14th July 2022. This is an in person, mini-conference event spread over 1.5 days that will be held in the Red Hat Cork office. Our event will include fedora-related talks, a mini-workshop and a keynote. More importantly, we will also *finally* host a real life in-person, in-pub pub quiz on the Wednesday evening after day #1! This event is free to attend and lunch will be provided for both days for attendees along with a casual dinner as part of the pub quiz on Wednesday evening.
So that's the good news, but unfortunately there are a few constraints we have to operate under as this is a small, local-ish event and we do have some capacity restrictions. This event is limited to 30 attendees including speakers. We can provide meals (lunch and dinner) and refreshments during the event, however we cannot cover travel and accommodation costs. That being said, if you would like to give a talk at this event, I would invite you to submit your talk proposal to our repo as we do have funding to cover accommodation costs for speakers for x1 night.
As we are hoping to host this event in 4 weeks and if you would like to attend and give a talk, I would ask you to please submit your talk asap to https://pagure.io/cpe/Fedora_Hatch_Cork
The deadline for submissions is Monday June 20th @ 23:59 UTC+1. Speakers who have been selected will be notified by no later than Wednesday 22nd June @ 1700 UTC+1.
Registration for tickets for those wishing to attend will become available on Thursday 23rd June @ 1200 UTC+1 via an email to the fedora announce & ireland announce lists.
This event will be held in the Red Hat Cork office which is located ~10 mins walk from Cork airport https://www.corkairport.com/home. We recommend this airport to travel to/from for your convenience if attending from the UK or Europe.
The nearest hotel is the [Cork International Hotel](https://www.corkinternationalairporthotel.com/?utm_source=mybusiness&utm_medium=organic). We recommend this hotel for your stay, however please do not book direct - instead reach out to Aoife Moloney by emailing amoloney@redhat.com notifying of an intention to attend, how many nights accommodation and how many occupants as we will create a group booking with the hotel and book your accommodation on your behalf. This will be pay on arrival unless indicated otherwise.
I hope to see some of you in Cork in July for Fedoras first(?) Irish event and please make sure to submit a talk to us before Monday June 20th if you would like to attend!

Go raibh míle maith agait agus is mise le meas,
