The Fedora Join SIG is proud to announce Classroom sessions. The Fedora Classroom is a project to teach interested users how to better use, understand and manage their Fedora system, and to show how the community works. The idea is to reach interested people and, if they desire, bring them closer to the Fedora community.
Almost all classes will be held on IRC in the #fedora-classroom channel on Freenode (irc.freenode.net). If you’re not familiar with IRC, check out the Beginner’s guide to IRC. Also we’ll use BlueJeans, a video conferencing platform that works from browsers, mobile devices and a desktop application. If you have trouble connecting to Blue Jeans, please refer to the support page.

This week’s session
Here are details about this Friday’s upcoming session.
David Kašpar (a.k.a. Dee’Kej) started working for Red Hat as an intern in Quality Engineering in 2012. Nowadays, he’s a package maintainer for both Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. In addition, he’s also a strong believer in free/libre and open source software principles, advocating for their usage even outside the IT industry. He regularly introduces students to meritocracy, the open source world, and the so-called Open Source Way. But he has other big passions as well — music, gaming and capoeira (Brazilian martial arts).
Topic: FOSS 101
A fly-through the history of Free/Libre & Open Source (FOSS) to let you know how it all started, how did it go, what have we achieved so far, and what can we expect in the future.
