Say thank you this November during Fedora Appreciation Week 2018

Fedora Appreciation Week is a new event this year organized by the Fedora Community Operations (CommOps) team. Fedora Appreciation Week, abbreviated as FAW, is a week-long event to celebrate the efforts of Fedora Project contributors and to say “thank you” to each other. Fedora Appreciation Week begins Monday, November 5, 2018 and runs until Sunday, November 11, 2018.

What is it?

The Ubuntu Community Appreciation Day inspired the CommOps team to organize a similar event of appreciation for contributors who make Fedora what it is. This includes all types of contributors, from development, design, infrastructure, marketing, engineering, and more.

During this time of appreciation, users and contributors alike are highly encouraged to select either an individual or a group of contributors to thank for their efforts in Fedora. Appreciation can be given as a karma cookie in IRC, a short note of thanks on a mailing list, or a longer form appreciation such as a Fedora Happiness Packet.

This year’s Fedora Appreciation Week will occur during the 15th anniversary of the Fedora Project on November 6, 2018.

Feedback needed on Fedora event guidelines

The Fedora Diversity & Inclusion Team is working on a new set of best practices and guidelines for Fedora-organized events. The team is looking for feedback from the wider Fedora community, both remote and in-person at the upcoming Flock 2018 conference.

What are the Fedora event guidelines?

Fedora event guidelines are a set of practices to help foster inclusion and grow diversity in Fedora-organized events. We value the participation and involvement of all people – speakers, attendees, and volunteers alike. Everyone can have different challenges or circumstances that affect their ability to participate in an event. Through these guidelines, we want to ensure that we think about the challenges of each and every person. It enables us to work toward helping all people to fully participate, and feel welcomed and comfortable.

Final GSoC Report – Fedora App : Abhishek Sharma

About Project

I worked on the redesign of the user experience and interface of the Fedora Community App. The Fedora App is a central location for Fedora users and innovators to stay updated on The Fedora Project. I revamped the design of the application from ground up to match the community standards and improve the overall experience.

Building community at Open Source Conference Albania (OSCAL) 2018

From May 19-20, 2018, the local open source community in Tirana, Albania organized the fifth year of Open Source Conference Albania (OSCAL). For the fifth year, the Fedora Project participated as a sponsor of this regional conference. OSCAL focuses on topics of software freedom, open knowledge, free culture, and decentralization. It attracts a range of international speakers and sponsors to a mostly local Albanian audience.

What we did at OSCAL 2018

The Fedora Project and its contributors were present in multiple areas of the OSCAL experience. Fedora took part to encourage the growth of the local Fedora community, support the efforts of existing Fedora Ambassadors and contributors, and introduce different technologies that make Fedora unique.

Fedora organized a booth and held a release party to commemorate Fedora 28. Several contributors delivered talks and workshops during OSCAL. Additionally, several Fedora contributors delivered talks and workshops across both days of the conference.

Hello from your new Fedora Program Manager

Headshot of Ben CottonHi, Fedora Community! I’d like to take a moment to introduce myself as the newly-hired Fedora Program Manager. I’ve been a Fedora user for over a decade and a contributor in various roles almost that long. I started out on the documentation team as a writer and then led the team for a few releases. I’ve also maintained packages, dabbled a little bit in marketing (I know I’m way behind on that video ticket, sorry!), and helped promote Fedora through social media and articles on Opensource.com. Professionally, my background is largely in systems administration (with a strong focus on high performance computing in public cloud), but I’ve spent the last two years in marketing. I have a bachelors degree in meteorology and a masters degree in IT project management. I’m also an organizer for a local tech meetup and an occasional freelance writer.

I’m at Red Hat headquarters right now for new hire orientation. Once that’s done, I’ll return home to Indiana and start work. Several interviewers asked what I’d do first if I got the position. Here’s my plan: I’m going to listen. Sure, I’m familiar with Fedora, but I haven’t been able to pay as much attention lately as I’d like. So before I come crashing in with a list of things I want to do, I want to get a better sense for what the community needs from me. That’s a good idea for any job, but particularly for one where I’m serving the needs of a mostly-volunteer community.
