Better Presentation of fonts in Fedora
Over the years Fedora has got an excellent collection of open source fonts with 428 fonts packaged covering almost all script of Unicode BMP. Out of these 428 packages we are installing 42 packaged by default during installation. With the activities in libre fonts community it is expected that Fonts in Fedora will increase further in coming years. In this talk i will talk regarding how we can better manage fonts in Fedora. It will include gathering fonts at one place, better presentation of fonts, more visibility to fonts developer and better way to get feedback from users. In long term all these task will also help to grow community around fonts and better quality fonts in Fedora.

Procrastination makes you better: Life of a remotee
Nowadays, more and more companies are moving towards "being remote". Likewise, more and more people want to work remotely. I get asked quite often what it is like to work remotely, how I manage to respect deadlines and actually do some work. Many people think that working remotely is hard and that just a small set of folks can actually do it. This is not true! Working remotely is not just about getting things done. It's more about getting yourself to the point where you're able to get things done. Going remote forces people to deal with things like having a good place to work from, being comfortable, managing their own time, defining priorities themselves and having time for themselves as well. Unfortunately, it doesn't matter how hard people try not to procrastinate, one way or another, procrastination manages to fill a huge part of the time and you know what, THAT'S FINE! In this talk, I'll share my experience as a remote developer, the things that have changed in my life since I stopped commuting every day and decided to be a prisoner of my own house. I'll go through the things I struggled with, the things I learned to deal with and how I embrace procrastination. This talk is a great opportunity for everyone to learn and share from real life experiences about this work arrangement.

Predictive Input Methods
Input methods are an important part of a desktop because writing text is one of the most important daily activities of any user. Especially when typing in a language which is not ones native language, typing can be very arduous and error prone. Having a good predictive input method then helps to input text correctly much faster. Even when typing in ones native language it can increase input speed a lot for all users who are not very fast touch typists. It also helps a lot on small keyboards which are not suitable to touch typing. This talk will focus on why such input methods are required and the magic underneath it. We have started the following projects for predictive input methods which were accepted as features of Fedora: https://fedorahosted.org/ibus-typing-booster/ http://git.fedorahosted.org/git/yokan

Review Server: Package Reviews without Bugzilla
Bugzilla is a bug tracking tool and we have been using it as a communication medium while performing package reviews. Package reviews are mostly about verifying packages adhere to packaging guidelines and spec file is sane. In some cases there is a lot of back and forth between would be maintainer and reviewer and bugzilla is slowing down this process. Alternative tool could be used to go through the process of package review while integrating with other tooling and infrastructure we have in Fedora. Integration with FAS, fedora-review, copr, koji, automatic imports of git repositories with review history into dist-git, commenting within the context of spec files and more would be possible. Hopefully this will help the communication between packager and reviewer as well as providing a welcoming environment for new packager. This talk will present you this review server and if you are good kids, there may be a surprise!

In this talk, I will show how to execute ad hoc commands on one or more servers as well as create simple playbooks. I will talk about how we use it at Fedora project to manage different kinds of servers across different data centers and the way we are using it.

Introduction to Docker
This workshop will help beginners to get started with Docker on Fedora. I'll discuss why Docker can be a better choice than Linux containers and virtual machines in many scenarios. As a part of workshop I would cover very basics from installing Docker to advanced things like creating a custom Docker image (example: webserver or redis) from bare Fedora image which can be shipped anywhere. I can also show how to setup a private docker registry, should the time permits. A 64 bit Fedora installation is required for this workshop.

Fedora.next.next: Planning for Fedora 22
Fedora 21 is now in Alpha phase, with Beta right around the corner. No time to slow down, let's get together and plan the next big set of Fedora Product features! This should be a two-part workshop: the first hour should be a retrospective on what progress and changes we've made for Fedora 21 and the initial Product launches, and then the rest of the time should be spent brainstorming the big enhancements for Fedora 22.

How I Built a Github clone in 2 weeks
Github is probably the leading forge for open-source projects at the moment. However, it is not FOSS which for core FOSS developers is always a hurting point. In two weeks, I developed a light-weight, python and git based forge allowing anyone to create their project. The forge includes a small, git-based, documentation browser as well as a light-weight issue tracker. The project can be forged and pull-requests created and merged. This project may remain forever a proof of concept but it shows that it is possible to compete with github from a technical point of view, the harder part being the social-web aspect that github offers.

GNOME: a content application update
In the new GNOME 3.x series we have been working on a new set of core applications for finding and selecting the user's content. Each application is generically named, tailored to the kind of content that it is meant to handle, and integrates tightly with the cloud and network services. Files and Videos (earlier known as nautilus and totem respectively) are the oldest of these. Then we have Documents, Photos and Music. We will present the current status of these applications, the high-level design and thoughts behind having them, and shiny plans for the future.

Building an application installer from the ground up
In this talk I will explain the different layers in our application installer architecture, right from guessing values from .desktop files, to adding extra data from AppData files, to the AppStream XML format, and then up to the application layer. I'm aiming to keep the talk light-hearted and hopefully entertaining, but at the same time explaining the nitty-gitty details and explaining any compromises we've made. I'll show lots of screenshots of the Fedora application installer (gnome-software) and explain how we're using the new data to fulfil high level UI and UX goals. I'll talk about what's left to fully integrate the architecture with the Fedora infrastructure. The intended audience of this talk will be moderately technical, although no prior knowledge of the installer stack is required.

Fully Automated Static Analysis of Fedora Packages
There are static analysis tools in Fedora (such as Clang or Cppcheck) that allow you to automatically detect bugs in your packages before they are noticed by users or even Security Response Team. We are announcing a push-the-button tool (csmock) that runs static analysis tools on RPM packages. Using this tool, you do not need to care how the static analysis tools actually work and how they are supposed to be used. You just give it an SRPM and a list of analyzers and it returns you a list of defects in a unified format. We will also briefly introduce a tool (csdiff) for processing such lists of defects, like e.g. filtering out defects that are newly introduced in a new version of your package.
