December 2009 Archives

Just a quick note that we've had a record number of session pitches at the FUDCon barcamp at Seneca College in Toronto!

Looking forward to a very exciting day of sessions, and expect further entries as the day progresses.
I submitted a proposal to the OLPC contributors program just now, in order to provide ongoing support and mentoring.  Thanks to the Fedora QA program that occurred some time back, I already have an XO-1 (this was attempting to get a standard Fedora desktop running on XO-1 hardware. Obtaining a GNOME desktop was actually pretty challenging, however, I found - unsurprisingly - that Xfce worked MUCH better on such low-end hardware).

The proposal is for 2 XO-1.5 units, to be used for both support of deployments in the field, as well as revising the somewhat dated developer documentation and support FAQ on the OLPC wiki.

Hopefully my proposal will be approved and I can get cracking! This is an important project for both Fedora and the children of the world.

FUDCon nametag bling

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

If you want a little extra bling on your FUDCon nametag (and who doesn't?), then fill in the last column on the pre-registration page on the wiki with a little something extra that you'd like on your FUDCon nametag. Make sure to limit it to about 20-30 characters, though, since it will be printed to fit, and anything longer will wind up needing a microscope to read it :)
