Ten ideas that are killing open source
As FOSS professional or occasional FOSS contributor, we are often running into situations where we could open-source some code but we do not. Why? By asking around I ran into 10 common patterns or reasons why people are unwilling to make their work free and open-source. I will run them one by one and I hope we can engage a discussion if they are good reasons or not and what we can do to improve on this situation.

Running Fedora on an ectothermic, amniotic vertibrate
Snakes are elongated, legless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes that can be distinguished from legless lizards by their lack of eyelids and external ears. Like all squamates, snakes are ectothermic, amniote vertebrates covered in overlapping scales.
We're going to show you how to build a custom image so that you can boot and run Fedora on one.

Conquering the world with Kerberos
You've heard of Kerberos, right? True single sign-on with lots of configuration, synchronization and pain. False. It is now easy to set up, has a long history of interoperation with Windows, and even supports OTP. Come learn about the significant improvements made to Kerberos in the last few years and catch a glimpse of where Kerberos will be in the future! We'll also talk software, frameworks, and language bindings that you can use today to call forth the three-headed guardian of the underworld, Kerberos.

When is the year of the Linux desktop?
"The next year will be the year of the Linux Desktop" - We have heard this so many times, yet the year didn't come. Why is that so? Are we doing something wrong? Even with the recent amazing news, that many gaming engines are turning to Linux and a few Linux-based gaming consoles are being released, there are still some problems which are frustrating for the end-user. The problems we will see are ranging from community problems to diversity problems, while including the fact that the enterprise overrides the needs of the desktop. The community must work together to solve these problems and make sure that the people who aren't tech-savvy can use a Linux distribution and we must ensure that they enjoy it.

Security threats at conferences
In this talk I will raise awareness for security threats against developers and contributors during conferences and show mitigation techniques and best practices to avoid them. A lot of attacks that happen less likely if someone uses the Internet from a secure station at home become dangerous, if for example WiFi networks at conferences are used. But there are a lot of possibilities that allow to reduce the risk. Using the Fedora Project as an example I will show what can be done in the infrastructure and by the contributors to minimize the risk.

Improving our visibility in schools
High schools and universities are important places where we should conduct outreach. Students are the ones that would later grow up using fedora and free & open source software in general. They are also the ones that could become part of our community and contribute their time, talent and skills to our project. We need to provide more resources and tips to ambassadors that wish to spread out the word. The Campus Ambassadors program aimed to do that, but is dead and sadly never truly worked out. In this talk we will be discussing about possible ways of doing that, in an attempt to bring the Campus Ambassadors program back to life. We will also have a look into what didn't work quite well in the recent past and recognise potential challenges. It's important we increase our efforts to have a greater impact on target groups like these.

HyperKitty, our new mailing-lists interface
The mailing-lists have always been heavily used across the Fedora Project, but haven't seen a lot of changes since the beginning of Fedora. During that time, web usage has skyrocketed and forum software is very common, being now the type of UI that most users prefer. But other contributors, developers and some users, like mailing-lists better. We don't want to choose between those UIs, we want both, and we want people talking to each other. Mailman, the piece of software that powers our lists, has just been updated to a brand new release. Its new architecture allowed us to contribute a modern and powerful web UI that bridges the gap between those two forms of communication. In this talk you'll learn: - how HyperKitty is deployed and used in the Fedora Infrastructure, - how you can use it to be more efficient and get more meta-information when using the Fedora communication channels - which new features are coming to HyperKitty - how you can hack on it and help the whole project communicate better

Be an inspiration, not an impostor
The free flow of new ideas ignites the open source world every day. Communities accomplish amazing things when people with unique voices and viewpoints share their ideas and inspire others. However, impostor syndrome -- the inability to recognize your competence -- can slow the flow of new ideas and stifle the progress of open source communities. Many technical people feel they lack the expertise to contribute or they carry a fear of being wrong. These members of the community have valuable ideas and insight that can make open source projects stronger. In this talk, Major Hayden will lead the audience through a discussion of impostor syndrome and its effects on individuals and their communities. Attendees will learn how to overcome their own intimidation through confidence and discipline while also learning how to inspire others to do the same.

Build your own (Ansible) lightsaber‼
Ansible allows sysadmins to do more work in less time by giving them a means to capture the desired state of machines in special configuration files and then apply those configurations to multiple remote machines. But for every labor saving tool there is some startup cost. In this case the price is recording the desired state into ansible playbooks. Several Fedora Infrastructure admins were faced with just this problem and solved it by building https://github.com/ralphbean/lightsaber , a common repository of playbooks and roles to configure their systems. Come to this session to learn how you can use their work to jumpstart your own ansible deployments on Fedora.

Federated Identity is a means to do web authentication by trusting a third party to do the authentication rather than configuring the application to talk directly to the identity backend via LDAP, Kerberos, etc. Project Ipsilon, a new feature for Fedora 22, is a Federated Identity Provider, and much more. It simplifies the setup and configuration of the Identity Provider (IdP) and Service Providers (SP), your local web app, to authenticate using the SAML, OpenID or the Persona protocols. This talk will provide and overview of Federated Identity, the supported protocols (focusing on SAML), and cover the features of Ipsilon including simple installation scripts, configuring different Identity backends and controlling what Identity data is shared with different SPs.

The Atomic architecture
The Atomic architecture is a vision for a multi-instance, multi-version model to replace the traditional, monolithic UNIX OS in the future of the Fedora / Red Hat family of Linux operating systems. It builds on the concepts of immutable, aggregate packaging and containerization and if adopted in the user base will fundamentally change how software is delivered. The talk aims to make the Red Hat strategy transparent and lay the foundation for a deeper discussion of the impact on Fedora.

Fedora Websites - what's next?
After updating our main website, start.fpo and spins (working) there are several plans for the future. One of them is a dedicated website to provide a space specifically for Fedora contributors that is separated from the user space, and to make it easier for folks who are non-packager contributors to Fedora to collaborate by providing them explicit tools to do that.

All you could ever want to know about clouds

Covering some 70 percent of Earth's surface, clouds play a key role in our planet's well-being. But how do they form, why are there so many types, and what clues can they give us about the weather and climate to come?

The climate models that scientists use to understand and project climate change are improving constantly, with better representations of the oceans, ice, land surfaces and other factors in the atmosphere. While there is still some degree of uncertainty in all these components, the largest source of uncertainty in today’s climate models are clouds.

Clouds can both cool the planet, by acting as a shield against the sun, and warm the planet, by trapping heat. But why do clouds behave the way they do? And how will a warming planet affect the cloud cover?

Come learn all you could ever want to know about clouds!

Mastering the art of open source testing
In general, software testing is a process of evaluating a product to verify that product meets its requirements and other basic industrial requirements. How it is different from open source testing? In open source project, testing is an information gathering service. Testers gather information about product by exploring it, questioning it, learning from the product and from past experiences. Open source projects bring real flavor to testing. Testing have many dimensional; capturing all dimensions in a formal process and documenting them in any kind of projects is highly impossible. This talk will cover key things in mastering the art of open source testing; that includes effective open source testing, how effective testing can revitalize open source testing, mission of testing, mind-mapping testing ideas, impossibility of complete testing, mistakes most volunteers make in open source testing and finally challenging testing tasks for attendees.

The network started getting rough, the infra team was tossed. If not for the courage of the fearless team, the infra would be lost. The infra would be lost.

Then, we'll deploy the latest OpenStack on Fedora using packstack in a VM and learning how to use your own cloud platform. In order to run the tutorial on your machine, we recommend a VM on your laptop that has 20GB+ of disk space, 2GB of ram and atleast 1 dedicated cpu core. If your laptop has the ability to run nested-virt, please enable that and use it. It will make a large difference to performance of the overall setup. We would also like to request everyone to setup these VMs ahead of time, in either KVM or Xen or any other virtualisation technology you might use. A basic CentOS-7 minimal install is sufficient to start from.

One of the most interesting thing to think of while doing packages is how the problems are solved (or not) by splitting into sub-packages. This is an attempt to collect ideas and making experimentations around this important package maintainer activity.

FAmNA Brainstorming
FAmNA (Fedora Ambassadors North America) seems to be having a lot of our ambassadors going more inactive lately and not having many ambassadors at our weekly meetings. I propose to have a workshop to discuss these issues and to discuss swag, discuss ordering swag (perhaps order swag while we are here), and generally to discuss how to improve FamNA.

Let's go meta: how to build the next Flock software system
Currently the Flock conference is run via some quickly (even if tastily) hacked code from a few brave but overworked Fedora souls. What if we had a conference system that could run multiple conferences, including Flock each year but also regional FUDCons? Let's get together, figure out the problems we want to solve in a new conference system, and start solving them.

Rolekit hackfest
Fedora Server provides a D-BUS service called 'rolekit' that enables the deployment and setup of system services such as a Domain Controller and Database Server. This extensible interface can be used to provide a deployment tool for virtually any system you can think of. Join us for a short explanatory session and a hands-on hackfest to help build features into rolekit!

Inkscape and Gimp bootcamp
It's time. You've seen this talk or talks like it at another free software event, but you decided you couldn't skip that cool 3D printing or Arduino talk and missed it! Well, not this time. Come learn some of the foundational skills you'll need to rock out in Inkscape and Gimp. Learn the basics nobody taught you and that aren't obvious from playing around with the software on your own.

Package cleanup workshop
Over the last few years, there have been several big shifts in our packaging policies. Among the most notable are the change from SYSV init files to systemd units, generation of python 2 and python 3 RPMs from the same SRPM, and generation of system-specific configuration. Flock provides the perfect opportunity to get a number of packagers (and ideally, provenpackagers) together to try to work through some of the remaining unmodified packages and get them cleaned up.

DevAssistant: Create your Assistants to make Fedora more attractive for developers
You will learn how to create your own Assistants for DevAssistant [1]. DevAssistant is a tool, that makes developers' life easier - but to be able to do that, it has to provide Assistants for developers' day to day tasks. The bast way to get more of those Assistants is to encourage developers to write their own and publish them on DAPI [2]. We can then package those assistants for Fedora and even install them by default, so more developers will benefit from them. In this workshop, I will teach you how to write your assistant, how to package it for DAPI and how to publish it. [1] https://devassistant.org/ [2] https://dapi.devassistant.org/

Fedora wiki workshop
Let's admit it: Our wiki is a mess. Bunch of outdated stuff, many pages that need to be updated, archived and categorized. The Fedora wiki is the "hub" for contributors and users, and it's very important to keep it organized, and keep everything in order. We will see that with small tasks everyone of us can do, can keep our wiki well-organized. There is content that needs to be archived, categorized and updated, so come join us. You don't have to be a wikiadmin to help!
