Augsburger Linux-Info-Tag 2014

April 8th, 2014 von buergermeister

On 22. March there was again Augsburger Linux-Infotag, an event I normally not visit. He is to small and the travel to it is to complicated for me. But this year I did go there to represent Fedora with an booth, I was not alone Björn Esser was the event owner and Raphael Groner did also help on the booth.
As I said the event is a small one with just a few hundred visitors but this year there was at the same day open house of the university so there was more people. We brought only a few DVD and swag and the DVD was gone soon. We reached through the open house event people who not using Linux and free software and became interested.

Chemnitzer Linux-Tage 2014

April 7th, 2014 von buergermeister

It’s time for another event report. The weekend from 15. and 16 March there was CLT in Chemnitz and I was there. It was now the 15th CLT and it was like all the years before but from my point of view there was lesser visitors as in the year before. But there was a long queue in the morning, people waiting for entry.

I had on saturday in the morning an workshop about using darktable and it was a mess. First I was totally jetlagged and my brain was somewhere else but not in my body where it belongs and the technical problems I had to face brought me really out of my concept. Window geometry of darktable didnt switch to the screen resolution that is no fun and the projector showed very different colors.

Everything else, was the same like all the years before, same people so not much to write about it.

Last day in Cambodia

März 10th, 2014 von buergermeister

Today is my last day in Cambodia and a exhausting but also cool time will end. The first days I was at FOSSASIA as I wrote in my blog before (day 1, 2, 3 ), Tuan and Uditha did also write about the event. For Fedora it was a very successful event, we was enabled to find 6 new contributors, for Ambassadors and translation. After the event we went together with the night bus to Siem Reap, for an very short visit to Angkor, you cannot been in Cambodia without seeing it. After it I came back to Phnom Penh, where I had 2 workshops about using Inkscape. One at Smallworld Cambodia and one at WebEssentials.asia. I found a lot of new friends and one the one side I would like to stay longer as there is still need for more such things here. But on the other side, I am happy to go home and be the next weekend at my favorite event Chemnitzer Linux-Tage.

FOSSASIA – day 3 – The hackfest

März 3rd, 2014 von buergermeister

Last day of FOSSASIA in Cambodia, the day for hands on and hackfests, today we changed the venue and went instead of Norton University to the OpenInstitute in Phnom Penh. We planned a hackfest helping them who want to join Fedora doing there first steps. On the end of the day we had done everything, from creating FAS accounts, making personal wiki pages, creating ssh key, we even did a little key signing party and 6 people have done the first steps to become Ambassador. Two of them are from Cambodia, where we had no Ambassadors before. They are also interested to make Fedora available in Khmer, the local language. It was really a nice hackfest.

We really worked the whole days on all things and explained a lot, so that our new contributors get an easy start. After the long hackfest, we went back to the hotel and managed to go all together including our new contributors to go for a nice dinner together, the last one in Phnom Penh, for the most of us. So for Fedora FOSSASIA was really an success.

FOSSASIA – day 2

März 2nd, 2014 von buergermeister

The second day of FOSSASIA 2014 in Phnom Penh was even more stressful as the first one. In the morning at 9am, I had my first session an Inkscape-Workshop which was really crowded. After that I had an talk which was not planned, but after my talks the first day there was more interest, what Fedora is. So the schedule was changed a little bit and I had in the main hall an introducion to Fedora. Besides that I gave an interview to Voice of Cambodia about Inkscape and how cool it is. The morning was really stressy. After all that more Fedora sessions in our room followed which was all sucessful.

In the evening there was another social event in a cafe, only problem for me they served only fish and seafood, but I got later an sandwich and so the day ended. I was really tired and felt asleep immediately after the arrival in the hotel.

FOSSASIA 2014 – Day 1

Februar 28th, 2014 von buergermeister

I am already 3 days in Phnom Penh now, but I was always to busy to write an post or my blog. I was a little bit tired on the first day after the 48 hours of the trip, which lead me through 4 different countries. But I had a warm welcome after the arrival on the airport where I was fetched from a volunteer of FOSSASIA who gave me a package with lot of informations and an tuk tuk was already aranged which brought me to the hotel. After an shower I managed to find Kushal and his wife and we had a late lunch together and we even had time for a small photo walk on the Riverwalk, with the kings palace and the Tonle river. But the next day, was more for recreation and finish the talks and waiting for the others to arrive. So we had all together a nice Fedora lunch at the River Crown, which has an nice view.

Today, there was the first day of three of FOSSASIA and it started not well, as there was in the morning a lot of short talks of all the suporters and each of them took more time as granted on the end there was one hour delay in the talks. Also Fedora had on this session an talk as we sponsoring the event and are btw the biggest participation on speakers at the event, we have 3 days long or own track. So Tuan did take that job and introduced Fedora to the audience. Later we had a lot of talks more, Tuan spoke about Fedora.next, Sarup showed ways how you can contribute to FOSS, Kushal showed how easy you can use Fedora cloud images and I did also 2 talks, one was an introducion to Fedora as A-Z talk and the second one was a nice follow up to Sarups talk, how you can contribute to Fedora.

Later we went to the social event, which was really nice as it was on a boat on the Tonle river, what means fresh air. After the dinner and boat tour we went back to the hotel and now I am already tired enough. Tomorrow will be another day with for me starting in the morning with an 2 hours Inkscape workshop and later I will have another Fedora related talk in our track.

This event will take this year place from 28th February to 2nd of March at Norton University in Phnom Penh/Cambodia It will be a long trip for me spending 47 hours in planes and airports but I think its worth it.

I saw the future

Februar 11th, 2014 von buergermeister

Last weekend was 6th edition of DevConf.cz in Brno and I was there. How it was can be described in just one word – awesome. It was not my first time on this event and it becomes more and more to an – you have to be there. On Friday and Saturday I enjoyed only a few talks as I am lesser the technical person, it was interesting to see that QA people think now about design & usability matters. One of the most interesting things for me was Fedora.next, I was not so much worried about it that but the few fears I had are resolved now.

Besides that there was a lot of time to socialize, meet people and resolve problems, grab swag for the next Fedora events and other things. On the end I can say, I looking into an bright future for Fedora and DevConf.cz played a role in it.

Looking back

Dezember 31st, 2013 von buergermeister

It’s the time in the year where you look back what you have done in the past year. I did that some years before in my blog to, so what have I done this year. The first thing I notice for myself I visited this year not that much events as before. Past years I had mostly 13 a year or even 15, this year it was only 8. Second thing I noticed, the a lot of them are longer then only the weekend, 3 events was 4 days long and one 3 so I spent a whole working month on events. With the travel its the whole month then or better more as I spent 17 days directly with travelling for them.
I visited in March Chemnitzer Linux-Tage an event which is a home game, in April I was in Madrid for LibreGraphicsMeeting, In May there was in Vienna the Linuxwochen and in Berlin the LinuxTag, in August I was at the first Flock in Charleston and in Cologne for FrOSCon, in October I had an horrible trip to Heidelberg for german Ubucon and the last event I did was in Oberhausen the OpenRheinRuhr. At the events I had 6 talks and delivered also 8 workshops and at Flock an hackfest. What I did also this year is some open workshops on different cities about Inkscape, which take a whole weekend. In January I started with one in Essen in Linuxhotel, I had 2 in Berlin, one in Cologne and Hamburg and one at my home town. So on the end 5 weekends out of home again.
Besides that I found some time to work for Fedora I did some banners and shirts and such stuff and tangled the supplemental wallpapers again, this year 2 times. Of course I took part in the creation of the default wallpaper. I am very happy the my Flock hackfest did result in Nuancier, which we used in a early stage for the voting for F20 supplemental wallpapers. Pingou spent some time during Christmas on it, so hopefully for F21 we can use it also for the submission. So it was a (sometimes to) busy year for me.

OpenRheinRuhr 2014

November 24th, 2013 von buergermeister

Some days ago I was on OpenRheinRuhr, an event in which I participate since the begin. Last year there was unfortunately no OpenRheinRuhr as the place was taken by another exhibition. I manned together with Felix and Christian the Fedora booth and besides of that I had a talk and a workshop in the schedule.

My talk was about the status of open source animation programs, where in this year a lot of things happend. Hopefully the upwind that area has right now, tails not off to soon and will show effect. The workshop I had was this time not about Inkscape like always, it was about Blender, the time was really short so the workshop became more an demonstration. What actually turned out really nice. Both talk was workhop was well visited and a lot of questions and interesting conversations came up after them. Think I will do OpenRheinRuhr next year again.

Ubucon 2013

Oktober 15th, 2013 von buergermeister

Letztes Wochenende war also die mittlerweile 7. deutsche Ubucon und ich war als einer der nicht Ubuntu-Vertreter, wie man hier nachlesen kann, vor Ort. Mein Beitrag zum Programm der Ubucon waren zwei Workshops, einer zu Blender und einer zu Inkscape. Etwas weniger als in den vergangenen Jahren. Das Programm war durchaus auch für nicht Ubuntu-Fans interessant, jedenfalls auf Einsteigerlevel. Ich jedenfalls mußte schon wieder Kurt Pfeifles PDF-Kung Foo-Workshop verpassen, aber nächste Chance auf der OpenRheinRuhr, wo wir hoffentlich endlich mal nicht paralell im Programm sind.  Mankos gab es wie immer an der Organisation, ich hätte mir eine bessere Beschilderung gewünscht, da hätte ich mir wohl erspart eine halbe Stunde auf dem Gelände herum zu irren und ein Netzwerk, welches nur Kommunikation auf Port 80 zuläßt ist auch nich das Wahre. Jedenfalls war es ein durchaus interessantes Linux-Wochenende, die Leute die zur Ubucon fahren sind ja nicht die Fanboys, bei denen ausser Ubunu nichts anderes in Frage kommt. Vielleicht begleitet mich ja im nächsten Jahr einer meiner Fedora-Kollegen zur Ubucon 2014, die auf jeden Fall statt findet ob in Leipzig oder Berlin oder vielleicht an einem anderem Ort, das wird sich zeigen.

Last weekend I was at the german edition of Ubucon, it was not my first one. Of course it was recognizable that I am not from Ubuntu as I weared like before my Fedora Ambassador Shirt, but I was not the only one from outside of the Ubuntu world, there was also Martin Gräßlin the KWin developer, who comes from openSUSE. That we are not from the Ubuntu Community was recognized from Kristian Kißling editor of the German Linuxmagazin and so he mentioned us in his article about the event. I had some interesting conversations on the event, hopefully next year I will be not the only Fedora guy there. There is definitely place to show e.g. RPM packaging and the visitors of Ubucon are the open people of the Ubuntu community, they are willing to learn also about such things, the program was generally not very Ubuntu related more Linux and FLOSS related. So next year I think I will be again going to this event.

Supplemental Wallpaper – Go For The Vote!

Oktober 1st, 2013 von buergermeister

The submission time for the Supplemental Wallpaper for Fedora 20 is now over, now there comes even a more hard part select the right ones for the package. As for Fedora 19 everybody who is member of a group additionally to the cla-group can vote. But there is something new this time, you can vote in Nuancier. That makes it a lot easier to vote, as you can see what you are going vote for and not have to look into the wiki like before. You will see voting with Nuancier is fun!

 

 

Nuancier is actually a thing why I love to work on Fedora, it took from the idea on Flock to this first working stage only a month. So I have to thank the people who helped to realize this idea. In the future Nuancier will not only serve for the selection process for the package, it will also serve for the submission process. We hope to have it ready for Fedora 21. With this it will become much much easier to submit to the contest and for me it will make it also easier as some things can be tested automatically on the upload. But enough with looking into an glass ball.

You can vote for at least 16 wallpapers, but you have not for 16 just select your favorites. The period for the voting will not be long just until 4th of October 2013 23.59.59UTC. If you want, you can get a badge for the voting but you have to claim it. All submitters will get one and the selected submitters another one, so a lot of badges to award. So now go for the vote and help making Fedora 20 become beautiful!

F20 will become beautiful…

September 13th, 2013 von buergermeister

Half of the submission period for the Supplemental Wallpaper for Fedora 20 is over now. Time to make a kind of status report. First we got so far a lot of submissions this time, nearly 90 and there is still more then 2 weeks left for submissions. Might be a lot of people just wanted to have the badge for the submission. The bad thing is the quality isnt this time so high as for Fedora 19 but there are still nice submissions, so we will get a nice package. This are my personally top 10 right now.

Another thing is I never had before to disqualify that much of submissions. The reasons are wrong sizes, simple to small and also wrong licenses. All of the submitters get in that case a mail from me and you should respond to it otherwise I have no chance as to disqualify it. Still a lot of people have problems with submitting to the wiki, mostly because the wiki cant create thumbnails when the file size of the upload is to big. Dont hesitate and ask me for help!

But for this problem there will be a solution soon, as I wrote in a past post here there will be an application for submissions and the voting in the future. The part for the voting is in a good shape now and it looks we can/will use it already for this period, I really looking forward to this. But for now still time for some more beautiful submissions until 30th September 2013 23:59:59 UTC.

8th FrOSCon

September 3rd, 2013 von buergermeister

The weekend from 24 and 25th August there was again FrOSCon in St. Augustin near Cologne. It wa my 8th attendance to this conference but what shall I say this year was not the best, and not because of the rainy weather. The organization of FrOSCon is know as a little bit chaotic, but this year it was the top! For Fedora we had a booth as an DevRoom, the booth was like always nice visited, especially we had Miro and an 3D printer on it.
For the DevRoom we made a nice program, this year not in cooperation with Mageia and openSUSE as we had last year with an RPM concentric schedule. Problem was this year, the schedule was not printed in the program and hard to find on the webpages as you had to scroll down. So we had not a lot of visitors in our room, especially we had that one with the longest way. For the first talk it was like in my own DevRoom nobody showed up, but beginning with Miros talk we had visitors and the amount was not that bad for them. But if we do an room again we have to think about how to improve the marketing for it. But besides that, FrOSCon edition 2013 was worth to visit as all the others before, so see you next year there.

Submit Wallpaper for Fedora 20

August 21st, 2013 von buergermeister

We might have no name for Fedora 20 yet, so the Design Team could not start working on the design for it yet but what you can do contributing to a beautiful look for Fedora 20, is submit to the Supplemental Wallpapers. You might remember the for Fedora 19 choosen ones.

So how to contribute to the Supplemental Wallpapers for Fedora 20?

First there are some rules. Here are the technical specifications:

  • Submitted wallpapers must use a format that can be read by software available in Fedora Package Collection. Preferred image formats include SVG and PNG.
  • Master files, which may be further edited, should be maintained in non-lossy formats. Preserving vector graphics, raster layers, and channels is important for such materials.
  • Originals for landscape formats must be a minimum of 1600 pixels wide and 1200 pixels high. The larger the better. Photographic submissions should be made at the highest resolution the camera is capable of.
  • Submitted wallpapers should be provided in a 16 x 9 aspect ratio when possible.
  • No watermarks, signatures, photographer/creator names, or messages may be included in any part of the work. However if the license allows, and the photo is compelling enough, we could remove watermarks.

Now here are the organizational rules:

  • Submissions must not contain material that violates or infringes another’s rights, including but not limited to privacy, publicity or intellectual property rights, or that constitutes copyright infringement. If your submissions include or derive from artwork created by other people, please make sure the license of the original work you incorporate is compatible with Fedora and that you are not violating any of the provisions of its license. Just because a work is licensed with a Creative Commons license does not mean it is free to use (make sure you provide attribution to artists that license their work with a CC Attribution clause.)
  • Submission should have the consent and approval of the author or creator
  • Submissions re thereby licensed to the public for reuse under CC-BY-SA unless specifically identified as being licensed by another approved liberal open source license. See a list of approved licenses for Fedora. Note that we can not accept NC or ND submissions.

The deadline until you can submit your artwork is the September 30 2013 at 23:59 UTC. You can submit your material directly to the wiki: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/F20_Artwork/Submissions/Supplemental_Wallpapers. For further questions, you can send me a mail and don’t hesitate to ask me for assistance just write me a mail gnokii@fedoraproject.org.
