Flock Day 1.

Here’s a summary of today’s activity where I participated or attended:

  • Up at 5:45am so Matthew and I could meet up with Josh Boyer, Tom Callaway, Ruth Suehle, and Joe Brockmeier for breakfast. Then we arrived at the Flock venue early.
  • Helped set up rooms with wifi information for attendees. Discovered the rooms feature electronically controlled windows. Once opened, these made the venue much more comfortable.
  • Missed keynotes myself while ushing people around to them. 🙂
  • Worked on my slides for Saturday’s talk, in the great Fedora tradition of iterating until the last minute.
  • Sat in on Tim Flink‘s Taskotron talk, and took notes for a Fedora Magazine article.
  • Went to a lunch meeting with Ludek Smid, Jaroslav Reznik, Joe Brockmeier, and Matthew Miller. We discussed some project management assistance for our Atomic/OStree work in Fedora. Very productive and we also had a good time.
  • Sat in on Christian Schaller’s Fedora Workstation talk. It was very well attended, so I think the idea that the Linux desktop is dead might be a tad premature. 😉
  • Sat in on Marina Zhurakhinskaya’s talk on the Outreach Program for Women. I’m happy to say Fedora is an active player in this space. I look forward to our doing even more.
  • Sat in on a talk on Waartaa by Ratnadeep Debnath and Sayan Chowdhury. This is an interesting take on a Web IRC client as a basis for other collaboration tools.
  • Sat in on Chris Roberts’ and Marie ‘riecatnor’ Nordin’s talk on Fedora Badges and badge design. (If you’re looking for the resources shown in the talk, look here.)
  • Headed back to the hotel to finish a Fedora Magazine article. Then I met up with friends to head over to our event at The Pub.
