TL;DR: We have postponed the upcoming Dojo at Facebook, and are 
carefully watching the situation to determine any other event 
participation in the coming months.

Due to the developing situation with the Corona virus and COVID-19, we 
have made the decision to postpone our upcoming CentOS Dojo that was 
scheduled to occur at Facebook on April 24th. Details of that event are 
here - https://wiki.centos.org/Events/Dojo/Facebook2020 - and will be 
updated once a new date has been selected.

Other upcoming events are still scheduled to occur, as they are farther 
out. The next scheduled event will be at CERN on October 23rd, and we 
will update details as we get closer. Details for that event are 
available at https://wiki.centos.org/Events/Dojo/CERN2020 and the call 
for presentations is still open.

Our planned booth presence at other upcoming events has been canceled 
for the foreseeable future, and we will update our event listing at 
https://wiki.centos.org/Events once the world situation improves and 
travel is once again feasible. There are several other proposed Dojos in 
the works at this time, but we are not going to publish any details 
until the epidemic crisis has passed.

Thank you for your patience and understanding, and we'll send updates 
here once things become clearer.
