Fedora 27 Release Party – Bengaluru

Poster

Poster

I have been a part of Fedora community for last 4 releases and have seen a lot of changes. Among things that have not been changed, Fedora Release Party in Bangalore is one of them.

Thanks to a bunch of very active contributors and an ambassador & mentor (Sumantro Mukherjee), it has now become a custom to celebrate Fedora Release Party in  Bangalore.

Different venues, different topics, different cakes but similar faces joining us and sharing their experiences in Fedora community to encourage new contributors to continue their noble work, and users to start contributing. The success story of a student who got an internship in a big company then became an employee always boosts the energy of college students.

Last RP, we tried to on-board few students for QA contributions and this time they came with a lot of reports. They are now active contributors and they introduced themselves to others. I invited my juniors to be a part of RP so that we can help them see the benefits of Open Source contributions.

Fedora returns to HackMIT 2017

Every year, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) hosts an annual hackathon, HackMIT, for students around the world. Students gathered again for HackMIT 2017 on the weekend of September 16-17, 2017. During the weekend, students form teams with other students and work on projects to compete in various categories. Participants often release their projects under open source licenses at the end of the hackathon.

The Fedora Project participated as a sponsor for the second year in a row. Justin W. Flory and Mike DePaulo attended as Fedora Ambassadors to represent the project and the community.

Fedora 27: Let’s have an awesome release party!

Fedora 27 is now in Beta status. With another Fedora release not so far away, it’s time for the Ambassadors to plan their activities around the release. The most common activity for Ambassadors to do is organize release parties. A release party is also a great way for other contributors in the community to get involved with advocacy in their local regions. Learn how to organize a release party and get a badge for it in this article.

A proposal: Ambassadors and Fedora strategy

Fedora is big. We are a huge community of people with diverse interests. We have different ideas for what we want to build, and we want different things in return from our collective effort. At the same time, we are one project with shared goals and limited resources. We are more effective in this competitive world when we agree on common goals and work towards those, rather than everyone going in the direction each person thinks is best individually.¹

The Fedora Council is tasked with taking community input and shaping this shared strategy. As part of this, we’ve written a new mission statement and have a draft overview page presenting it. We’ve said for a while that we want the work of Fedora Ambassadors to align with this mission directly. We’re getting feedback, though, that this is easier to say than to put into practice, which is understandable because, by nature, mission statements are high-level.

So, I have a proposal. As part of the Fedora Council’s charter, we have Fedora Objectives:
