Join Us: Design Team Sessions Live!

Just before the Christmas holidays, you may have participated in one of three impromptu live design sessions / video chats I held. In the first session, a group of Fedorans did a critique on one of the Fedora 34 wallpaper mockups. In the second session, another group of us did a collaborative design session for a custom Fedora Discourse theme. In the last session, we did a live digital painting session.

This was part of an experiment to see if there would be enough interest and to generally test out the concept of holding a regular Fedora video chat meetup. Due to the ongoing pandemic, and the fact that it started just as I was returning from maternity leave, the Fedora Design Team never resumed our regular IRC/Matrix text chat meetups, and I was looking to see if we could be a bit more creative (I mean design is a creative pursuit 🙂 ) in how we chose to sync up.

I think the experiment was a success, so we will be holding these in a less-haphazard way on a regular schedule, and calling them “Fedora Design Team Sessions Live.”

DevConf.CZ CfP now open

The calls for proposals for DevConf.CZ (18-20 February 2021) is open through the end of the month. This Red Hat-sponsored conference is a great opportunity to share your knowledge and experience with the community. For 2021, DevConf.CZ is a virtual event.

DevConf.CZ is looking for workshops, discussion sessions, and presentations, with a variety of length options available. This large community conference has tracks for a variety of topics including community, IoT, cloud/containers, microservices, networking, desktop, and documentation. Like in years past, there is a dedicated Fedora track. If you weren’t ready to give a presentation at Nest—or if you want to give it to a broader audience—this is your chance. You can submit proposals through the DevConf.cz CfP portal through 1 November.

Wizards and Halloween: F33 Release Party goes virtual!

TL;DR: sign up here if you’re interested in good times with your Fedora Friends to celebrate the F33 release!

Mark your calendars: the dates of the Release Party for F33 are November 6th, 7th, and 8th.

The Mindshare Committee is currently working on organizing a Release Party event to celebrate F33. We agreed it should be more of a party than a conference. So we are keeping sessions light, and fun EXTRA. We’ve already had requests for repeats of pictionary, pub quiz, and I guess we can stumble around in Mozilla Hubs too 😉

Nest with Fedora: Poll Results and Thanks!

It has been a month since we met virtually to Nest with Fedora. The event was a huge success and it is all thanks to the Fedora community. The sessions were interesting, interactive, and educational. (And the recordings are now available on the Fedora YouTube channel!) The social hours were fun and full of smiling faces. The platform exceeded expectations in a lot of ways (and under-performed in others, unfortunately). The polls provided a fun way to interact and change programming on the fly.

Most recently, I know you all have begun to receive swag bags from the event, and I hope you enjoy them! For those yet to receive, stay patient, they are on the way. Sending those out was one small way we can give a “THANK YOU!!” to the community for the passion, time, and energy you put into Fedora. Your participation made Nest with Fedora a great virtual event, and I can’t wait for more virtual events in the future!

Play Minecraft with Fedora Friends at Nest 2020

Thanks to our friends at the Spigot MC project, the Fedora Community is invited to build, survive, and thrive in an open-source Minecraft server until Monday, 10 August 2020! Join your friends and invite your family to join by connecting to fedora.spigotmc.net in the Minecraft: Java Edition client.

How to connect

A paid Minecraft: Java Edition account is required to log in. Open the Minecraft game client and add a new third-party multiplayer server:

fedora.spigotmc.net

The server can hold up to 100 players at once.

What to do

Play Minecraft together with other Fedorans from around the world! Whether you want to build your own house or battle skeletons, zombies, and creepers in the night, you can craft your own adventure.

The Minecraft/Spigot server is a great way to catch some down time between sessions, and socialize with other gamers in the Fedora Community. You can also invite your family, friends, or young Fedorans to join in too.

The Minecraft/Spigot server will remain online until Monday, 10 August. After then, a download of the server world (not including The Nether and The End) will be made available so you can load the Fedora Nest Minecraft world in single player or other multiplayer servers.

Code of Conduct

The Fedora Minecraft/Spigot server follows the same Code of Conduct as Fedora Nest and the wider Fedora Community. Be kind, be respectful, and have fun!

Remember to keep the chat and your creations family-friendly.

Get help

Need an admin? If you need to get help in the Minecraft/Spigot server, reach out to Justin W. Flory on Telegram (@jwflory), Freenode IRC (jwf), or email (FAS: jflory7). Additionally, you can also email the Flock Staff Team for support (flock-staff [at] fedoraproject [dot] org).

Special thanks to Michael Dardis and the SpigotMC Team for sponsoring the Minecraft game server for Fedora Nest 2020.
