Linuxwochen Vienna day 2

Mai 10th, 2014 von buergermeister

The second day of Linuxwochen Vienna was like always better visited as the first day. As Gergely and Peter arrived also that day we had enough swag to survive the rest of the week. For me it was also the first day where I had an workshop. This time about Blender, there was only 7 people in it, but that is normal on a friday morning.

The rest of the day I spent on the booth and just visited one talk about how to get OSM maps printing ready. In the evening we went together to the Linuxwochen After Hour party and later went for to an restaurant for an Wiener Schnitzel.

Linuxwochen Vienna day 1

Mai 9th, 2014 von buergermeister

Its the time in the year, I spent some days in the wonderful city of Vienna. First day of the Linuxwochen is always the thursday andits a little bit quieter then the other days but this year there was a lot of visitors. That might be because of the program, in the schedule there was mostly talks about how you can keep your data a little bit more safe.

We had on the first day no talks or workshops in the program. For me that was very good as I had the crazy idea to come with the night train. I arrived right on time on the venue for preparing the booth. Linuxwochen printed us a nice poster and I brought the table cloth and everything I had left on swag, just to survive the first day. It was really everything gone in the evening.

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.

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.

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.

LinuxTag 2013

Mai 27th, 2013 von buergermeister

LinuxTag 2013 is over now since two days and most of us are back home. So it’s time to write down a conclusion. LinuxTag was this year a little bit of everything, good things and bad things. First of all the area where the exhibition always was, was not the same anymore. It was down in the cellar. That is positive as negative. For the exhibitors its nicer as normally it was always hot weather and hot inside, in the cellar is more cool. The rooms for the talks was also moved to the cellar, so all of the rooms except for the workshop and meeting rooms was on one floor. That was really visible during the breaks, there was definitely more people inside the exhibition area. So on the end we gave out twice more of DVD. As we had again a 3D printer on the booth we had a lot of visitors, they still attract the people. Opposite to that OLPC and RaspberryPi don’t are that interesting to the people anymore.

We had a lot of conversations on the booth, most of course was about 3D printing and what it has to do with Fedora, but like always there was some conversations about how to get a special software into the Fedora repositories. We was a lot of people on the booth and we needed them all so thanks go to Jens Kühnel, Dominic Hopf, Sebastian Mäki, Jiri Eischmann, Miro Hroncok, Francesco Vollero and especially to Alexandra Fedorova (who did notice there is a event on thursday and joined as just for saturday).

FrOSCon 2013 is coming

Mai 14th, 2013 von buergermeister

FrOSCon has called for talks and projects a while ago. Fedora has requested a booth already but there is still some time left (9 days) for submit talks and workshops. Last year we had also an DevRoom we shared with Mageia, openSUSE and Centos where we did a schedule with talks about RPM packaging. The question is now, do we want a DevRoom again and what we can do with it. Any suggestions are welcome.

April 5th, 2013 von buergermeister

Its some time since the Chemnitzer Linux-Tage are over, most of Fedora booth personal have already blogged about. I also made a post. As I wrote in my post the 3D printer Miro brought was the attraction at the booth. So the guys from “Gnu funzt” wanted an interview with Miro about Fedora and 3D printing and now its published and here it is.

The Fedora part starts at 05.30 and its in English, the rest of the video is in German.

travel & speaking plans

Oktober 9th, 2012 von buergermeister

Thats again a part of the year, where I have to do a lot of travel and talks/workshops on FLOSS events. In 10 days I will go to Berlin for the german Ubucon. I will be there again in Fedora blue and give an talk and 2 workshops. On the first weekend in November I will go again back to Berlin or better to Potsdam, which is nearby. This time for BLIT and there Fedora will have a booth, it’s the first time Fedora is present there with an booth. But I also will have speaking engagements on this event. I will give two lectures about Inkscape. But there will be also a Fedora related talk from Dominik Hopf, who will talk about OLPC & Fedora. Just a few days later I will go to the RedHat offices in Brno where the first Linux ColorManagement Hackfest will take place. I am happy that I found someone who is interested to work in the future on my TaxiDB idea. We will work on implementing the features Richard Hughes requested on LibreGraphicsMeeting, that gives the new guy a chance to look in the code and become familiar with it. After that I will have another full weekend workshop inhouse on 23.-25. of November. I already had one on the last weekend, I think all the participants learned a lot about Inkscape, but there are still some out there who had problems with the date, so I offer a second/third workshop. In December I plan to attend the EMEA Ambassador FAD in Rheinfelden, which will begin for me with an horrible train/car or plane ride. That place is really a damn corner of Germany, at least for me. That will be the last event this year for me (hopefully). But the good thing is thanks to many friends, I can spend the travel time now working ;)

That was FrOSCon 7

August 28th, 2012 von buergermeister

The last weekend the 7th edition of FrOSCon happend, and I was there for manning the Fedora booth, organizing the Fedora track and give an Inkscape workshop. For the Fedora booth was not so nice that we was to few people, especially we had also the DevRoom with an track about packaging. Nevertheless we handed out app. 200 DVD and had still a lot of conversations.

For the DevRoom, I think it was a good idea to do it with other distributions together. We should do that maybe next year again. We had app. between 15- 20 participants in the talks and workshops. More is I think only possible if we market it better and for that we should next time the program have earlier. On the Satruday evening ther was the famous Social Event the barbecue in the yard of the university. And there was a “Spherical Cow” spotted!

So we had a lot of this, what they call beer there and of course some sausages and steaks and conversations. On Sunday it was harder for Sven Lankes and Michael Spahn, because the had to handle the booth mostly alone as I had my workshop on that day. But we still managed everything. And after an horrible trip home I am back now, and can get back to work now.

P.S. we had a little collegue at our booth and he got in a mysterious way missed in the night from Saturday to Sunday. If you see the little Tux, just give notice, his owner misses him really.

FrOSCon 2012 – Search for talks!

Juli 5th, 2012 von buergermeister

End of August there will be the 7th FrOSCon in St. Augustin near Cologne/Germany. Fedora will have a booth there but still I search for personal to man it. Until now, we are only 2 persons for the booth, thats definitly not enough especially as I have an workshop with 3hrs length in the program of FrOSCon. Christoph also requested a room, like last year where we can have ur own program with Fedora related talks.

To make that happen we would need at least 5 or 6 talks for the day we have the room. So if you have something interesting to speak about, and I am sure there is a lot of new things arround Fedora to speak about. FrOSCon is definitly the target audience for Fedora, people with interests in programming and higher level of system administration and btw. the Koelsch & Barbecue party in the evening is famous. So if you interested in manning the booth or deliver a talk/workshop, add your ideas to the wiki page or speak with me.
