My name is Jess Chitas and I am an intern at Red Hat focusing on contributing to the Fedora community. Over the past couple of months, I have been fortunate enough to work on the new Nest, Flock, and Hatch logos as well as — Colúr — a new Fedora character! In this post, I document my journey from creating Colúr to revamping the Nest, Flock, and Hatch logos!
I am happy to announce the recordings for Nest With Fedora are now up on the Fedora YouTube channel. You can search for the ones you want or watch the whole playlist! There are 56 videos to peruse full of Fedora information and friends! Nest with Fedora 2021 was another huge virtual event success for our community. The event garnered 900+ registrations with an 81% turnout (4% above industry standard). This is almost double our numbers from Nest in 2020. A huge welcome to all the newcomers. We are so glad you are part of the Fedora community!

Hello Fedora Friends! Phew, it’s been over a year of living with COVID and everything that has gone with it. Although living in a pandemic has been stressful (to say the least), Fedora has thrived through this time, and we have been connecting more than ever. So it is with mixed emotions that I am announcing that our yearly contributor conference will be virtual: Nest with Fedora 2021 edition.
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:
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.
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.
