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.

CLT 2014

Februar 17th, 2014 von buergermeister

In knapp einem Monat ist es wieder soweit, die Chemnitzer Linux-Tage finden statt, dieses Jahr dann schon zum 15. Mal. Natürlich werde auch ich wieder vor Ort sein und auch am Programm beteiligt sein, dieses Jahr allerdings etwas weniger und auch nicht mit einem Inkscape-Workshop.
Von mir gibt es dieses Mal eher etwas zu Rastergrafiken, Fotos um genau zu sein. Ich stelle in einem Workshop die Fotoworkflow-Software darktable vor und das Ganze natürlich wieder mit einem praktischem Bezug. Zur Anmeldung geht es hier entlang.

In a week I will start a journey to an event in Asia called FOSSASIA. 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. We will have an track on this event only dedicated to Fedora related talks.

Fedora Track Saturday 1st March 9.00 – 16.30

On Sunday, we will have the whole day an hackfest

where interested people can do together with us, there first steps as Fedora contributors. Kushal will work with the people interested in packaging, Tuan with that for becoming an Ambassador and I will work with that interested in doing design tasks for Fedora. I am really interested what comes out of that hackfest and how many new contributors we can win there.

I will also give an Inkscape workshop on the event, which isnt scheduled yet, so Fedora has really a big participation on FOSSASIA this year. I will stay a little bit longer in Cambodia, but not for holiday. I will give some workshops at Smallworld Cambodia and for Webessentials and I will be back right on time for Chemnitzer Linux-Tage.

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.
