Ideas/Brainstorming

For this audience, we'll want to cover:

  • Fedora Workstation on sysadmin desktops and laptops. (Many people will, however, run a corporate standard build; either RHEL-based or a proprietary OS, due to company policies.)
  • Fedora Server — talk about how it can fit in with RHEL and CentOS as part of the whole ecosystem. "Stay ahead of changes" is a good story here.
  • Fedora Cloud — same
  • Fedora Atomic — I bet containers and container tech will be a big topic
  • Possibly work with the Cloud folks for an atomic host demo of Cloud Server / Server installs and intregation

Important Deadlines

For 22 Oct FAMNA meeting:

  • More detail on needed funding if any requested from mattdm

Event Wrap up:

20151112 (prelim. Full report to be amended OR via https://linux-modder.wordpress.com Post Conference Blog post in coming days)

Matthew Miller (mattdm) and Corey Sheldon (corey84|linuxmodder) spent 12 hours across both expo days greeting a mostly veteran user audience, with mentions of 'Fedora meetups' much like the ones Ansible has, also a common theme was the sugar desktop seen on both the OLPC and on the Demo Laptop in the form of Fedora-Live-Soas-x86_64-23-10.iso on a Live USB....

Several Folks seemed to be highly impressed with Cockpit and its functionality for the Server / Deployment Environment

An effort to update the Demo Thinkpad to a F23 Multi feel thru due to time and activity at the booth, the laptop is presently using the F22-Live-*-*-20150629 Updated Spins
