     We had a Fedora 24 Release Party on the 3rd of July, 2016, organised by Sumantro Mukherjee, Sudhir Dharanendraiah and Sankarshan Mukhopadhyay in Red Hat, Bangalore. During this release party, we discussed new features in Fedora 24. Around 50 people came to the Fedora 24 release party and most of the people were college students.

    We initiated the party by cutting the cake.
