List of Flock blogs and more

If you’d like to get a bigger picture view, you can read a pre-conference interview with a few Flock speakers here or with Thomas Cameron here.

Days 3 and 4 were reserved for workshops. Also, during these 2 days, people continued to split into smaller groups to discuss matters of their own interests, and so did I. However, I caught up with some of the presenters to ask them about the outcome of their sessions and you can read that at the end of this article. But to be fair – if you want to read something about Flock, feel free to browse the blogs that emerged in the first post-Flock week, listed here:

Docs Project update from Flock 2016

At Flock 2016 in Krakow, Poland, I had the privilege of updating the community on the status of the Fedora Docs Project.

I made a small presentation and moderated a discussion in the Hackfest: Fedora Docs Learn and Hack panel. Unfortunately, my co-presenter and Fedora Docs Project Lead, Pete Travis, could not attend this year.  Therefore a lot of the conversation reflected my opinions and what I have gleaned from others.

The presentation slides are online. Unfortunately, the session wasn’t recorded or transcribed, so I wanted to try and present the conversation here. I am not attributing any comments in order to avoid mistakes. Additionally, I am working from my memory and the memory of other attendees, so omissions are accidental.

Two focuses for the Docs Project

There was a FAD in May 2016 to formulate ideas for moving the project forward. Two big ideas came out of this meeting:

Reminder: Flock talk submission deadline is April 8

This is a friendly reminder that the Flock submission deadline is less than a month away, on April 8th 2016. If you have been thinking of submitting a talk or workshop, now would be a great time to get that sent in.

Flock talk ideas

The Council is particularly interested in talks that address any of the current Council Objectives as well as discussions around new Objectives people would like to see. Of course, innovation happens outside of Fedora itself and we’d love
to hear about that as well. If you’ve been using Fedora as a foundation for other interesting Free and Open Source software and/or community work, consider submitting a talk or workshop around it.

Get Flock talks submitted!

Remember, without your contributions we cannot have Flock. Let’s work together to make it great.
