Is "cloud" something beyond a buzzword, and should Fedora care?
"Cloud" is one of the biggest tech buzzwords ever, like sticking dot-com on an idea a decade ago. It's slapped on anything and everything these days, sometimes with very little sense. But, there is something real underneath all that. This introductory talk covers what the cloud really is and what it isn't, with a focus on work currently going on in Fedora and on what it means for our future.

Evolution of a Linux Distribution and its Ecosystem
Over the last 20 years, Red Hat Linux, Fedora Core, Fedora were/are built to some common assumptions, expectations, and desires. Over that same period, the open source ecosystem has seen exponential growth number and variety of technologies and applications. The scope and breadth of the ecosystem and immense variety of deployment targets raises fundamental questions on the role of distribution and its capabilities. A single deployment target is no longer enough, neither is a single web programming language or a single database. Evolution of the content of Fedora as well as the processes and tools used to build Fedora can propel its significance for the next 20 years.

* People show up with code that they want to prepare: I'll help people to migrate their code to the subset of python2 that is compatible with python3.
* People show up wanting to learn general strategies for preparing their code in the future: I'll walk through how I migrated some code from running on python2 only to running on both python2 and python3 with general questions that people need to answer about their codebase to make things easier on themselves.

Lulzbot Keynote
The 3D printing community is the largest and fastest growing part of
the Libre Hardware community. With this rapid expansion, the need for
better tooling is becoming evident, both to improve accessibility to
every day users and to empower new contributors. Fedora is the first
and only major GNU/Linux distrobution to package most of the Free
Software tooling used in 3D printing today, which is an important
step, but the tools themselves need to be improved further.

This talk discusses the current state of Free Software in the context
of libre hardware 3D printing - new developments, opportunities for
further involvement, and areas of concern. The talk will also include
a demonstration of hardware from Lulzbot - the makers of the only 3D

Using Fedora for developing things other than Fedora
A presentation and significant Q&A reviewing existing projects and visions for the future to make Fedora the best place for developers* to work.

I would like to reverse that trend by offering a better "development experience" not just a co-opted "better user experience" which MacOS seems to offer.

SELinux for Mere Mortals
While Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) is an incredibly powerful tool for securing Linux servers, it has a reputation for being difficult to configure. As a result, many system administrators simply turn it off. Fortunately, the incredible amount of work completed by the SELinux community in recent years has made SELinux system administrator-friendly.
In this session, attendees will:
  • Learn the basics of SELinux
  • Review the SELinux architecture
  • Discover how to configure, analyze, and correct SELinux errors
  • See how to generate basic policy modules to enable non-SELinux-aware applications to work on SELinux-protected systems

Scale or Fail - Give your app the Speed it Needs in the Cloud
Whether you have one or a million visitors accessing your web app, they are all going to demand a great user experience regardless of what it takes for you to deliver it. This invariably means quick page loads and fast response times every single time. In this talk we will show how core Linux tools have been used in OpenShift to deliver a kick-ass autoscaling platform. We will take a spatial web/mapping service and hit it with load and watch OpenShift just start adding new "servers" to handle the load. No proprietary solutions needed - it's all right there in Fedora 19 and you will love to see this in action.

An Architecture for a More Agile Fedora
Fedora is awesome, great tech, great people, high standards, and the best enthusiast distro. But it's also difficult to use as a base for building on, and that's where the excitement is now and in the future. This talk presents a proposal for refocusing the core Fedora distribution as a platform, while including layers of modular enabling tech within a broader Fedora umbrella, with greater autonomy for SIGs in their own areas. This will make Fedora a stronger base for remixes and spins, an easier target for developers, enable upstream communities to work in Fedora while retaining their own conventions and culture, provide a better app UX for end users, and will put Fedora in the center of interest in computing today.

The Hotrodder's Guide to Maximum Performance LAMP
Hotrods, aka drag racers, are the automotive epitome of the pursuit of maximum performance. Even though they are amazing machines, the basic concepts of how to get there are simple: reduce weight, simplify, streamline, and add power. The same concepts can be applied to server infrastructure to take your overloaded server and reduce its load to a respectable quarter mile time. Even in an age of abundant CPU power and cloud computing, the art of tuning servers for maximum performance is still relevant and pays immense dividends down the road no matter what size your IT infrastructure is. In this presentation I will cover all parts of the LAMP stack, how to tune those parts, dos and don'ts and trade offs.

KVM ( Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a virtualization solution for Linux. It consists of a loadable kernel module, kvm.ko, that provides the core virtualization infrastructure and a processor specific module. Using KVM, we can run multiple virtual machines having Linux or Windows images.
KVM uses QEMU("Quick EMUlator") which is a free and open-source software that performs hardware virtualization. Virtio is a virtualization standard for network and disk device drivers where just the guest's device driver "knows" it is running in a virtual environment, and cooperates with the hypervisor. This session would be useful for those who want to understand virtualization with KVM and interested to know about how KVM, QEMU & Virtio works together.
The session will also cover few of the details about the work flow of virtio and QEMU."

User Testing for the Rest of Us
User testing is an important part of creating great software, but it's too often neglected. It used to require labs full of expensive recording equipment, and lots of specialized training, but not anymore. Today, anyone with a few friends and a laptop can conduct effective user tests.
In this talk, you'll learn the basics of conducting effective user tests, and practical tips and techniques for testing cheaply and with minimal equipment.

Fedora vs the Semantic Web
The semantic web aims at adding semantic (meaning) to the web as we know it today. By adding meaning we start to define the world as we know and we can add inference rules allowing some extents of automatic reasoning.
For Fedora this could mean providing information about all our packages in a computer friendly format making use of the DOAP (Description Of A Project) ontology.
The idea of this talk is to present the semantic web and eventually start brainstorming on where it could be applied in Fedora.

Polyglot Spatial with FOSS in the Cloud
Spatial is a hot topic for all sorts of developers and MongoDB offers an easy way to get started. MongoDB enables search and check-in type applications - ranging from field resource management to social check-in applications. In this session we will load up a spatial database and then create web services using three different languages, Python, Java, and Node.JS. We will demonstrate the similarity and differences when getting the same functionality for a MongoDB REST-based web service. For each language I will show how to load the driver, authenticate, query, filter, and write to the database. By the end you will be amazed at the wonderful job the driver writers did on ease of use and native feel when writing code. You will also enjoy a demonstration of how easy it is to use MongoDB for your application.

PKI Made Easy: Managing Certificates With Dogtag
Dogtag is the community upstream project for the Red Hat Certificate System, an enterprise Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) implementation used by the largest PKI deployments in the world. Dogtag encompasses the full lifecycle of certificate management: certificate issuance, publishing and revocation, generation of CRLS and OCSP responses, key escrow, and smart token management. Its also used for certificate management in FreeIPA.
In the latest version of Dogtag, a new RESTful interface has been added, leveraging the RESTEasy framework. This new API makes it simple to install and write clients to interact with Dogtag servers to perform certificate operations.
In addition, the Data Recovery Manager (DRM), the Dogtag subsystem that is used to securely escrow private data encryption keys, was enhanced to be able to store secrets of any type - such as symmetric keys (like data encryption keys) and passwords. This ability is also exposed through REST resources. There is an active collaboration with CloudKeep to use the DRM as the backend storage for a cloud-wide secret storing server.
In this talk, we'll introduce Dogtag, describe the interface and show how to write Java and Python clients. We'll also talk about current integration efforts (FreeIPA and CloudKeep), and future plans for expanding the REST API.
