Alternative Desktops: Unite!
While GNOME is Fedora's default offering, the number of alternatives in Fedora grows: There are not only KDE, Xfce and LXDE but also new players like MATE or Razor-qt. We no longer want to be 2nd class citizens, but to achieve that, we have to improve the quality of our offerings.
In this session we will investigate opportunities coordinate our efforts, and combine our strengths and discuss ways to minimize the breakage cause by GNOME every now and then. Members of the desktop team are invited to join us!

Graduating to GUI: PyGObject for Beginners
In this workshop, we'll talk about how easy it is to get started writing GNOME applications using Python and GObject. You'll learn about the tools and resources that will help you get started, how the object model works, and walk through some examples of working code. You'll start writing your own small GUI program and debug it collaboratively with help from your peers. You need to know basic Python to be fully successful in this workshop, but you can learn a lot even if you don't. If you read and understand Chapters 1-5 of Dive Into Python (http://www.diveintopython.net/toc/index.html) you'll be ready.
