Fedora 30 Release Party Mexico City

On May 23, 2019, the Fedora Community in Mexico City ran an awesome Fedora 30 Release Party. This activity took place in the local Red Hat office. We really appreciate the space for our activities and particularly thanks to Alex Callejas (darkaxl017) for doing all the necessary paperwork.

We had three main activities: An amazing talk from Rolando Cedillo (@rolman) about KVM in Fedora, a Q&A session and our networking time with pizza and Fedora cup cakes.

Flock Talk & Session Proposal Reminder

It’s hard for me to believe, but it’s been more than five years since we launched the “Fedora.next” initiative. At the end of Fedora’s first decade, we knew it would be important to think, plan, and adjust so the project could continue successfully in the decades to come. Now we’re halfway into the next one, and this Flock conference will be an important time for reflecting on our progress and charting our path for the next five years and beyond.

Because Flock is focused specifically at our contributors and developers, this is a unique conference and we’re looking for talks and sessions that reflect that.

Fedora 30: Let’s have an awesome release party!

Fedora 30  is about to be out.It’s time to plan their activities around the release.

The most common activity 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.

Organizing a release party

How do you organize a release party? There is a page that has the full details. You will find hints of what you can start doing now and how to do it. Anyone with a valid FAS account can host a Release Party!!

Hosting Release Party

When you’re ready, you need to do a few simple things:

1. Send an email to the mindshare mailing list and let the world know what you’re planning. Ambassadors and others may have suggestions or advice that can improve your event. This also lets you find others who may want to help you with your event.
2. Open a ticket in the Mindshare Issue Tracker and let people know about your event.If your event needs financial or swag support (see below) this is a crucial (and mandatory) step. Please use the Release Party template.
3. Once your party is approved, do the following: calendar, so others can easily find it.
4. Request a QR code to award the Release Party Attendee badge. You can do it by opening an issue at mindshare pagure .
5.  Put in a swag request ticket in the Fedora Budget Repo.
6.  Finalize your plans and hold your party.
7.  After your party, write an event report. An event report lets the community know what happened and how it went. Ideally your report will be shared on the Fedora Community Blog, but posting it on your own blog and the Fedora Planet is fine too. If your event requires financial or swag support, this is mandatory. These reports should help us understand what happened and how the party went. Ideas for what went well and what could be improved are welcome.
8. If you have financial assistance approved, file a reimbursement ticket in the Fedora Budget Repository

Have fun and earn a badge

Just make sure you write a report of it (only people with reports get a badge awarded) and have some nice pictures with happy faces. Then you will surely earn the badge for release party organizers.

Fedora Kernel and i18n Test Day: PICT College

Planning

We met for 2 meeting instances to plan this college meetup, once on 30th August 2018 and then again on 3rd September 2018 in Red Hat office. This event was planned as an alternative to the September Fedora Pune Meetup. We decided to do something different this time by executing a recent Fedora 29 test day with a room full of students of Computer department in the PICT college of Pune. Professor Mayur was our point of contact in the college and we had shared the Fedora 29 image under test with him. He ensured students have it installed on their respective systems before the actual test day. Pravin Satpute from Red hat helped us with coordination with the college. Kaushik Banerjee arranged for few Fedora and Red Hat badges to distribute among the attending students. The event took place on Friday, 7th September 2018.

Open Power Summit 2018 event report

With some rather unfortunate delays is my report from last year’s Open Power Summit. Let’s dive in it, without further delay.

It took place between 3th and 4th October 2018 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. It is event organized by the Open Power Foundation, steward of the Open Power CPU ISA. It is open and builds on top of the heritage of the past Power architectures, enabling any vendor or individual to dive in to the technical deeps of it or even implement it on their own.

 At the venue there have been booths of different foundation members and affiliated organizations. Like Raptor engineering with their Talos II and Blackbird platforms on showcase, Mellanox with accelerators cards, Yadro with big-data memory(RAM) dense servers or OpenCAPI consortium with bunch of accelerators from various manufacturers that are leveraging the OpenCAPI standard, just to note few. To add on the OpenCAPI it is open offspring of the CAPI that has been introduced by IBM with their Power8 architecture.
