The CentOS Dojos are a one day event that bring together people from the CentOS Communities to talk about systems administration, best practises and emerging technologies. The emphasis is to find local speakers and tutors to come together and talk about things that they care about most, and to share stories from their experiences working with CentOS in various scenarios.
Every Dojo event is organised into speaker sessions and tutorial sessions. This might be either 3 speaker sessions and 2 tutorials, or 6 speaker sessions and 4 tutorials, depending on the number of rooms we have.
Attendance to these events is restricted to 75 people to ensure there is plenty of opportunity for everyone to interact and establish social connections to carry the conversations through into the future.

We are trying quite hard to make the events be as low priced as possible, and to bring in as many people as possible. And for that we are looking for sponsors. Things that we need sponsorship for :
- Cost of TShirts and handouts
- General costs ( eg. A/V equipment onsite, promo and content hand outs ) etc
Please get in touch with us at the Donate address if you are able to help with sponsorship.
Add notes here on what is involved in organising a dojo, what is expected, the typical day and agenda, post-dojo evening drinks etc. Also include comments on typical catering needed, sign posting, example templates that can be used along with thoughts on how best to promote the dojo, both to speakers and potential attendees.
