Flock is coming

Juli 25th, 2015 von buergermeister

Its just a few weeks to 3rd Flock, where the Fedora birds come together. The schedule is out for a while and as you can see I have two things which I will “present”.

The first one is Design Clinic, where you can come if you need help from the Design Team, Máirín Duffy, Ryan Lerch, Marie Nordin, Meghan Richardson and me will be there to helping you with problems you have. You can come with everything, you need a poster for an event so com, you need a logo so come, you need help with UX design so come, you have any idea where we can improve from the design perspective come and speak with us.

So far we have 3 projects we want already to work on:

  • Ralph Bean asked us a while ago if we can improve the “fedmenu”, some might have noticed it already that are the little buttons down in the corner if you are logged in into a page of Fedoras infrastructure.
  • Pierre-Yves Chibon, drives since a long time an service called “This week in Fedora” and he wants an design to present it better in the web.
  • Matt Miller wants help with an presence for “Two Week Atomic”

So if you have something just come along and grab us for help! You can also write to the design team mailing list, if you are not at Flock and have a thing where we should work on.

The second thing I have is the “Wallpaper Hunt“. As you might know I am responsible for getting the supplemental wallpapers for each Fedora release. Btw. our nice little application for doing that was started on first Flock but looking back to that Flock, I received after it some submissions from Charleston, that was definitely not good and there was so nice motives in Charleston to sad we had not one wallpaper in the next release which was shot during Flock. And there was so nice motives! This Flock I want to change that. With Marie Nordin I located a nice spot where we want to go and try to shoot pictures that can show up in Fedoras next version.

So I know we have talented photographer between us, lets get together going there and try get some nice pictures on this way we can share our knowledge and equipment and I think we will have some fun to. The only chance we have to do it, is Wednesday after the talks, so come to me before I will tell you where we meet.

On Saturday as you can see in the schedule we have some time then get the pictures processed.

FOSSOGRAPHY 2015

Juli 7th, 2015 von buergermeister

I will do in November a new event about Free Software graphic tools – FOSSOGRAPHY. This event plans to bring developer and user of this software together. Its thought of a kind of showcase about the newest developments in this areas and what can be done with free software. The projects shall win this way new users as even more contributors.
But it shall be also a place where the various programmers of the different projects can meet and connect to work on stuff where the programs should be working together. But also a place where you can come and tell people about an idea you have that might get software in this area improved.

The Call for Papers as well the registration for the event is open now and closes on 30th September. We search for talks, handout sessions, workshops, hackfest from the following areas:

  • Open Source and photographics
  • Free Software tools for image manipulation and raw development
  • 3D graphics and renderer
  • Free Software for vector graphics
  • Font design with Open Source
  • Free Software tools for 2D & 3D animation
  • Video editing and production with Open Source
  • Game development and asset creation with Open Source
  • UX design in/for and with Open Source
  • Desktop publishing and print design with FreeSoftware
  • Open Source 3D printing soft- and hardware
  • Open Source Color Management
  • Aerial photography and video with Open Source
  • DIY (open source) dolly systems
  • File formats for free graphic software

The idea to this evnet, was born a long time ago as another event who looks wants the same doesnt become what it should be.
After the decision was made to do it was open the place where it should be and there was a lot of thinking if it is a good idea to go first time to Asia. Yeah there are some disadvantages, like working style of Asians or the most Europeans/Americans think flying there would be more expensive as travelling inside Europe or the the amount of FOSS contributors isnt that high on this continent. But at a certain point we as free software movement have to go to Asia to get them involved and not always saying, we dont have contributors there!

But there is something else, we have to carry the costs for the event, where is actually a positive thing doing it in Asia as that gets amazingly cheap as well we want to support speakers and projects with there travel costs. We try to collect most of this money from the community, so if you believe in the goal of the event and/or using this tools, you can help us. We made a pledgie for that purpose and an indiegogo campaign will follow. But watch we want to give you something in return!

FUDCon APAC 2015 – Summary

Juli 1st, 2015 von buergermeister

I was last week in Pune for FUDCon, so its time to write about the experiences.

Day -2

I had to start my travel 2 days before the event from airport Leipzig flying to Munich, well the travel to Leipzig and also the checkin and flight was without something to mention. Just one hour ride to Leipzig and 40 minutes flight to Munich. I had a long layover in Munich so I checked before the situation with WIFI and electricity, well Munich has free wifi and they even proudly anounced that the equipped the gate areas with power supply, well they was there but simple not working. With a little searching I found one which was working but there was nothing to sit there so I spent the time in EMEA Ambassadors meeting standing :D

Day -1

Also for that day there was no action, boarding the plane in the morning and leaving it in Mumbai in the night. The immigration process with the TVOA visa worked well, except to find the counter for them was difficult. So if you travel to India and eligible to get it, thats the easiest way.
Outside the airport Prima Yogi Loviniltra and a volunteer did already wait for me, just Ryan Lerch was missing but he joined as a few minutes later. So the fetch on the airport was well organized. The cab ride took some time but interesting conversations made that not feelable. So we arrived in the morning in Pune just enough for 3 hours sleep.

Day 0

I had not really time for a good breakfast but I needed one as I had not a dinner either, but Kushal was already standing there telling me I was to late. But I managed to grab something to eat even the waiter always removed my tools when I grabbed something. Also here the transport was well organized and the bus for bringing us to MIT was already waiting.
On the first day I joined a few sessions but I will write only something about the most important for me. We had a BoF session for the next APAC FUDCon. What I am worried about is the style which is coming up there, just finding some point why a thing not might be good instead of trying to find out how problems can be solved!

Day 1

I started the day with Jiri Eischmanns presentation about the Fedora workstation and his presence and future. I joined several other talks to, where I just want to mention the Achieving Community Goals With Fedora one from Tenzin Chokden, awesome job of Joerg Simon and Fabian Affolter and their l10n hackfest for the tibetian language, good work. Besides that I had many organizational conversations for organzing stuff in the APAC region.

Day 2

This was actually the most busy day for me as I had in the morning my own workshop about using Inkscape. Well there are some negative things, the room was not the best choice, its hard to work on a small table attached to the chair. But more worst was that the picture from projector was looped to an camera, but the camera was missing so we had to find that out first, so I lost some time for the workshop. But we still managed to draw with the participants what I wanted to achieve and they have a good foundation to use Inkscape in their work and learn it more. I already prepared a screencast, which you can find here.

Ryan switched more to a presentation style, which I only do on events to impress people what with our free software tools can be done and how easy it can be. But as I expect people on a FOSS event like FUDCon are already open to using our tools and just need some help starting to work with them and the best way to learn it is by doing.

After the lunch we had another Ambassadors BoF for APAC, time to speak more Ambassador stuff. We made during this year some progress in APAC and on FUDCon it was visible a lot of asians in a Fedora Ambassador shirts, but we still have not all equipped with them.

We also made progress in producing F21 media centralized but still there are some problems to solve as the process didnt work well, we had no central production in APAC for F22 but we talked how we shall do it in the future and think found the best solution for it. We also had time to discuss if it would possible to replace the DVD media at least partly with USB sticks. We agreed on doing a research on prices until next FAD APAC end of the year and look there if we do it or not. And yes we found an place where we want to do the next FAD – Singapore so we will work on it during the next months to organize it. So we moved again forward.

Day 3

Some went out really in the morning to spent some time in Mumbai, but I am to old for touristic pressure even I would like to have seen more from that city, I was in India for FUDCon and not for an touristic tour. So I went out of the hotel at noon and the cab brought me to the airport, where I enjoyed the sun outside and later I spent some time with Danishka Naven and Izhar Firdaus in the airport.

Day 4

This day I entered a plane in Mumbai short after the day had begun and woke up landing in Zurich. Well I found easily an AC port in this airport and free wifi was also available so I could do some work during the time I had to wait for the next flight, wich was this time just 5 hours later. After this flight I just had a short trip with the train and I arrived right in time for the Design Team meeting.

Summary

It was an interesting trip to India seeing how people live there and make new friends, meeting people I worked already with and meeting old friends. I think we moved for the Ambassadors in the APAC region and that means Fedora makes progress in the future in Asia.

  • 15th Anniversary Linuxwochen Vienna

    Mai 11th, 2015 von buergermeister

    As all the last year in May the event row called Linuxwochen makes it stop in Vienna and I represented Fedora there. This year it was an special event as the Linuxwochen could celebrate their 15th anniversary. And this years event was indeed special, normally this event is compared to others a smaller one as it is from Thursday to Saturday. But this year it was on Thursday already crowded and it looked some more Germans have found their way to Vienna. Also both of the workshop I gave in Vienna was an success and as always filled with people.
    Personally I think the exhibition area was this year a nice one to, as Axiom Apertus Beta was presented there, first that this open source camera was presented in public and also Mozilla did show an TV running Firefox (an TV that you can buy, greetings to Ubuntu).
    The social event was this year also a nice one, with an special delicious cake. So it was all in all a win to been there personally as for Fedora.

    März 20th, 2015 von buergermeister

    The submission phase for Fedora 22 Supplemenal Wallpaper is now over and the voting is open. You can vote, if yu have an Fedora account cla +1 until 25th of March. Dont forget to claim the badge, the link for the claim will be showed after the voting. But nw is als time to say something to the submissions, we received this time not a lot, that might be because of the shortage of the submission phase. We got 69 submissions thats half of the last one. Unfortunately I had to deny a lot of them because persons or trademarks on them or wrong format. The quality of the submissions is this time als not that good, a lot of our good photographers did nt submit something. Personally I find it hard to find 16 amngst the submissions, tht would be worthy to gt packaged. But this are my personally favorites:

    But now go and look for yourself and vote.

    Make Fedora 22 Beautiful !

    Februar 23rd, 2015 von buergermeister

    Time is flying, Fedora 21 is there just 2 months and Fedora 22 alpha is before the door. So it is time to open the Supplemental Wallpaper Contest. We will use again Nuancier Fedoras application fr the submission and the voting. There are also this time some changes, there is now a team of mentors, who look over the submissions and make suggestions how it can be improved. The submission phase is this time much much shorter, you have only until 19th of March to make your submission.

    There are some rules of technical nature:

    • 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.

    and some of organizational nature:

    • Submissions must not contain material that violates or infringes anothers 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.

    To get inspiration, you can always look on former submissions, that are my personal favorites from the last contest:

    The deadline until you can submit your artwork is the March 19 2015 at 23:59 UTC. The voting will open automatically after this deadline and as many said the period for the voting shall be longer it will be this time open until 25th of March

    For the badges hunters, yes there will be badges for it. There will be a badge for submissions, it will be awarded after the examination of the picture if it fits the rules, which you can see above. Another one will be awarded if your submission is chosen and also for the voting process there will be one. So successful submission makes 2 badges ;) 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.

    Back 2 work

    Februar 11th, 2015 von buergermeister

    It’s some time now that I was in Westford for the Design Team FAD, it was great and we achieved a lot during this weekend. We came down to 17 open  tickets for the Design Team and discussed how we will work in the future.  The only thing what wasnt that nice is the flying time, I was really jetlagged after the return and additionally I fetched a nice cold which brought me down for more then a week. So I was a little bit down for nearly 3 weeks, but now I am back but I have so many mails to read and answer that it will be my work for the next 3 days.

    Next station will be the Chemnitzer Linux-Tage, where I will have together with Robert Scheck an talk. Next to that I have to arrange the Linuxwochen in Vienna, which have also started their CfP. So if somebody wants to help me on the booth…. and there is also some work to do for Fossography in November. So a lot of work waits for me.

    OpenMovieNight Phnom Penh

    November 24th, 2014 von buergermeister

    On friday evening I had another OpenMovieNight, this time in Phnom Penh again at Development Innovations. It turned out as a good event we had around 40 participants and after an short talk about copyright, creative commons licenses, open source and free software, we had a lot of fun with the 33 movies I had chosen for the show.

    As some already asked in IRC here is the complete list of movies I presented:

  • Inkscape Workshop Phnom Penh

    November 21st, 2014 von buergermeister

    I had yesterday the opportunity to give an Inkscape workshop at Development Innovations Cambodia in Phnom Penh. The participatns was only from several NGO’s, so called multiplicators and it turned out great. One day isnt that much time, to learn enough about Inkscape to use it in a professional way, but you can get at least the foundations to use it and learn more by yourself. But we had a lot of fun together and there was really some talented people amongst the 23 participants and the best two of them had already Fedora stickers on their laptop, so Open Source community in Cambodia begins to grow.

    Workshop at Smallworld

    November 20th, 2014 von buergermeister

    I am still in Cambodia and after FAD I had on monday and tuesday an workshop about open source graphic tools at Smallworld Cambodia. It was great as always I like being there, its a nice place and its really nice to see how this young people organize to get an better education. The workshop was really good and there was really talented people amongst the particiants. I even managed to help one to install an Fedora on his laptop. The only thing bad was, that my tuesday morning started not so nice with being fetched in the elevator but I was still on time at the place.

    So Fedora found again more friends in Cambodia, it might need time to get them to contributors but I have hope for it. At least they start using more and more free software and thats a good thing.

    Big Week Cambodia

    November 2nd, 2014 von buergermeister

    This November will be a busy month for me, I will fly to Cambodia again and bring some Fedora energy there. Its my second visit to this country and I look forward to it. I will have an talk at Royal University of Phnom Penh. RUPP is using Fedora for teaching there students basic skills for Linux. But as always, its teached more about technical stuff as what Linux or Fedora really is, projects driven by volunteers. RUPP gives me the great opportunity to speak to all there IT students about how they can contribute to Fedora and learn even more by doing so. But I will do some other things more.

    • On 14th of November I will join the Fedora Release Party Phnom Penh and help Somvannda Kong and Nisa Ban by giving an talk at this event. Truong Anh Tuan is giving another one. So it looks there will be an interesting program with talks and fun. Yes, Fedora 21 will not be released that day, but Beta will be available at least and we can show the features of the upcoming version.
    • On 15th of November I will help in the morning Somvannda in preparing the packaging workshop, which will be done that day remotely by Robert Scheck. So we will help the attendees to install all the necessary software for the workshop so that Robert can start without being enforced to take care of that.
    • The rest of November 15th and 16th I will join the FAD APAC, where the activities for the next year will be planned.
    • 17th and 18th of November I will deliver a 3 days workshop at Smallworld Cambodia, about doing Graphics with Free Software tools.
    • 20th of November I will be back at Development Innovations for delivering an Inkscape workshop to attendees from several NGO’s
    • 21st of November I doing an Open Movie Night at the same place, talking about free software and free culture and of course showing some examples what can be done with free software.
    • 22nd and 23rd of November I will do another Join Fedora workshop, as I did in February at Open Institute Phnom Penh. I hope that during all my presentations at RUPP, Release Party and so on, get enough people interested to start working for Fedora. In the workshop we will do all the  things together that are necessary to become a Fedora contributor.

    Besides that activities I will have some meetings with friends and partners to organize some stuff in the future.

    Inkscape-Weekend Oktober 2014

    September 20th, 2014 von buergermeister

    Ich habe von verschiedenen Seiten Anfragen erhalten, ob ich denn nicht noch einen Inkscape-Wochenendworkshop anbieten könnte. Momentan ist meine Zeit allerdings begrenzt und es gibt nur eine Möglichkeit und zwar am Wochende vom 24.-26. Oktober 2014

    Der Workshop beginnt am Freitag Abend mit einigen Dingen rund um SVG, der Oberfläche von Inkscape, den Verzeichnissen, Zooming und Panning und setzt sich dann am Samstag morgen fort mit den Zeichenwerkzeugen. Nach meinen Erfahrungen schaffen wir in bestimmte Themen, wie Live Pfadeffekte, Gekachelte Klone und vor allem Filter nur Einblicke aber die reichen aus, um im Selbststudium sich damit beschäftigen zu können. Wann immer es geht schieben wir auch praktische Teile ein, bist Sonntag Abend sollten wir auf diese Art und Weise alle Funktionen von Inkscape kennengelernt haben.

    Neu dieses Mal ist, das wir verstärkt auf die neuen Funktionen von Inkscape eingehen, denn unter Umständen ist die Version 0.91 von Inkscape dann bereits erschienen. Diese bringt eine große Anzahl Neuerungen mit.

    Wie bei allen anderen Workshops vorher auch gibt es wieder ein Formular zur Anmeldung, auch dieses Mal gilt ich mach mir nur die Mühe, wenn mindestens 3 Leute zusammen kommen. Ich gebe spätestens eine Woche vor Veranstaltung per Mail Bescheid, ob die Veranstaltung stattfindet.

    Ansonsten bleibt alles beim alten Teilnahme frei, es sei denn ihr wollt mir etwas zustecken aber das bleibt euch überlassen.

    Winner F21 supplemental wallpaper

    August 23rd, 2014 von buergermeister

    The voting phase for supplemental wallpaper is closed now and the results are there. But is time to look a little bit back on the contest this time. We had this time lesser contributions as last time, we got 87 submissions where on the end 83 was accepted. Last time we had 114 from 117 submissions. Also this time the quality of the submissions was lower as last time.
    One of the reasons for this is, the results of the last votings, I have spoken with some of the contributors where did contribute high quality content, why they not contribute this time.
    I will find a solution how we can raise the quality of the submissions again. There are several solutions in my head. But for now is time to show the winner pictures which will get packaged.

    If you are interested in all the results you can find them in Nuancier.

    Status of Fedora 21 Supplemental Wallpaper

    Juni 22nd, 2014 von buergermeister

    The submission phase for the supplemental wallpaper for Fedora 21 is now half over. Some already asked me for the status and most wanted also to see what is submitted. But we decided not to show them until after the voting, to avoid that people vote only for people they know instead of the quality of the submission.
    But I think now its time to give a little bit of an overview what is the status now. So far we have 59 submissions, 3 of them had to be rejected, wrong license, one was an double and one had the wrong resolution.
    The good thing is more people as last time contributed to the wallpaper, the bad thing is that I got a strong feeling some just did to get the badge. So the quality of some submissions is low. On the other hand some participated with creating wallpapers especially for the contest, so we have until yet three vector graphics or image manipulations in the contest. In generally a lot of the submissions are nice with the motif its just that a little bit work on the RAW files would help them over the top. Mostly they are over-lighted, some just in areas.
    So the question is now, if we change Nuancier in a way that allows the upload of different versions of a submission, so that you can work on them to make them better if necessary.
    But that is music which might be played in the future, lets take a little look whats already there. Here are 5 submissions, which are my personal favorites right now.

    Just to remind you, there is still time until August 16th for submissions, so more then a month. So jump to Nuancier and make your submission

    Submit your wallpaper for Fedora 21!

    Mai 2nd, 2014 von buergermeister

    It is time to open the submission phase for Fedora 21 Supplemental Wallpapers. This time not only for the voting phase but also for the submission phase, we will use our application Nuancier for it. We hope that makes submissions a lot easier. Be aware its the first time we use it so there might pop up some issues.

    There are some rules of technical nature:

    • 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.

    • 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.

    and some of organizational nature:

    • Submissions must not contain material that violates or infringes anothers 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 August 16 2014 at 23:59 UTC. The voting will open automatically after this deadline.

    For the badges hunters, yes there will be badges for it. There will be a badge for submissions, it will be awarded after the examination of the picture if it fits the rules, which you can see above. Another one will be awarded if your submission is chosen and also for the voting process there will be one.

    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.
