The recent DevConf.cz conference in Brno, Czechia is a great example of an event by and for developers and open source community members. Hundreds of speakers showed off countless technologies and features advancing the state of open source in Linux and far beyond. Here’s a taste of the conference in the form of three videos concerning Fedora that were part of the schedule.
Fearless upgrades with Atomic Workstation
Jonathan Lebon shows off the Fedora Atomic Workstation. This variant of Fedora Workstation offers a full desktop working environment which can easily host Flatpaks and containers. Because it’s based on rpm-ostree, it offers painless upgrades and rollbacks. Check out Jonathan’s talk here:
Fedora panel discussion
In attendance at DevConf.cz 2018 were Fedora Project Leader Matthew Miller and many other community leaders. Miller provided a look at statistics on distribution, project, and community growth, as well as commentary and analysis. Since this was a panel discussion, it’s a fairly freewheeling session in which the audience participated as well. View the panel session here:
