August 31st, 2015 von buergermeister

A picture can say more then a thousend words….

And this is how FrOSCon 10th edtion was, great including the all free drinks and sausages, steaks and ice cream at the social event. The rest was like all the years before great talks including Andrew Tanenbaum and Madog Hall as speakers, nice but small exhibition. Just a good Fedora dev room was again missing. Maybe next year again

  • 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!

  • 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 24th, 2015 von buergermeister

    Last weekend there was Chemnitzer Linux-Tage, after the dead of LinuxTag in Berlin, Germany’s largest event around Linux and Open Source. I got to this event since the begin and it was like always a lot of visitors, even it was a little bit lsser this year as the years before. I had this year als only one talk, together with Robert Scheck.

    So I had more time for conversations and the booth, which was as always good vistited. We did as the last 3 years also present an 3D printer but we was not the only ones, s time for a new idea. But the people have still interest in it. So we had a lot of conversations an handed out a lot of DVD and stickers.

    P.S. if another Fedora Ambassador needs the slides, they can be found here

    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.

    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.

    Flock -1

    August 5th, 2014 von buergermeister

    As always an event starts with the trip, this year for me a very short one. Just an 3hrs train ride on a route I have travelled many times before. But its still enjoyable as the train goes until Prague along the Elbe river, means you cross the whole Saxonian Switzerland one of Europes most beautiful landscapes. And what is the best, can enjoy the trip again with fellow Fedorians. In german, we would say “ich mach dann mal die Flocke” ;)

    Linuxwochen Vienna day 3

    Mai 12th, 2014 von buergermeister

    Day 3 of Linuxwochen Vienna was for me the hardest day, I didnt spent much time on the fedora booth as I had to deliver 1 talk and 2 workshops. It started in the morning with the Fedora A-Z talk, which is always nice and gives the attendees a chance to ask a lot of questions to Fedora and they had a lot of questions. After the talk I had to hurry to get into the next room as I had to give together with Sebastian Wagner an darktable workshop. After two hours explaining darktable modules and what you can do with them, what costs a lot of time the workshop ended. I am still not 100% happy how the workshop went, first the problem with the window size I faced in Chemnitz was there again and this on three different machines with different versions, so it looks is a darktable bug and second if all modules are explained the workshop becomes more an demonstration as an workshop, so I have to work on the content a little bit more. But the around 30 attendees was still happy with the workshop and we got positive feedback.

    Direct after the darktable workshop my Inkscape workshop did happen, which had not that many people as the one before but still a lot. All the attendees reached the goal I had with them:

    Who wants to repeat to redo the steps we did in the workshop, I prepared an screencast (german) for it which you can find here. The rest of the day I spent on the Fedora booth but it was not a lot of time anymore, just 2 hours and then the Linuxwochen Vienna 2014 ended.

    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.
