As you probably know, there is annual convention called Flock. This year’s is happening in Cape Cod, Hyannis, MA and will begin the morning of Tuesday, August 29. Sessions will continue each day until midday on Friday, September 1.
I have asked all of the session leaders from Flock some questions.
And now you are about to read one of the responses.
When to go fully modular? by Adam Šamalík
What does your talk focus on?
It will be in a form of a discussion or BoF. It will focus on the future of Fedora in the Modularity world.
What is the goal of your session at Flock?
Bing important people together to discuss, brainstorm, and maybe start planning how do we approach modularizing the distribution, including building, testing, and releasing.
What does it affect in the project?
It affects the way we define, build, test, and ship the distribution, as well as how people use it.
Without giving too much away, what can attendees expect to learn or do in your session?
The biggest benefit is bringing people together to have an effective discussion. I believe people from different parts of the Fedora world will learn more detail about the other parts relevant to Modularity, and exchange their ideas about going forward with Modularity.
Who should attend?
People who have influence in rel-eng, infrastructure, packaging, and Matt Miller.
What do you do in Fedora/how long have you been involved in the project?
I’ve been in fedora for a little over three years now, started contributing to the Copr project for which I’ve built a new user interface. Then the Modularity people asked me if I could build them a user interface for the modular pipeline, which I’ve prototyped and presented on Flock last year. I stayed mainly focused on Modularity as I found the project interesting.
What attracts you to this type of work or part of the project?
I really enjoy working in open source communities and trying new things.
