This is the main page for the FAD UVCE Banglore 2017, which is a FAD (a mini-conference) focused on recruiting (and enabling the recruitment of) new testers and contributors to Fedora via the Fedora QA and various other DevOps projects like Ansible.

Infrastructure by college

1. Classroom with Projector and internet with capacity of ~80 people. 2. Lab with systems and internet.


  • To introduce participants to Pagure , Fedora QA , Fedora infra .
  • To help them find the paths to their first contributions

Primary Goals

  1. Mentoring students to understand how they can start contributing and developing application on Fedora.
  2. Hands on on how to solve issues marked as wishful in Pagure
