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.

Why Fedora Sucks!
We all know Fedora sucks. Sometimes harder and sometimes it doesn't hurt that much. This talk will highlight where we suck most, what we can do about it and why it's sometimes not necessarily a bad thing to suck.

Installer Redesign and Rewrite Retrospective
A look at the multiyear redesign and rewrite of anaconda. Difficulties encountered during the process. How the work was kept in the open, communicated to users and developers, and what we can do better in the future. The information presented here uses anaconda as a large project example, but a lot of the lessons learned can be applied to any open source project.

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.

OpenShift, Fedora, and the future of packaged web apps
Having OpenShift as a built-in PaaS solution in Fedora 19 (and beyond) is great, but there are obvious differences between Fedora's packaging approach and Openshift's "cartridges and quickstarts" model. This talk is about the opportunities for collaboration between the Fedora and OpenShift communities, how to build quickstarts that will work on multiple Fedora releases, etc.

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.

Changing the Default Updates Model
Currently, the Fedora updates model is a "fire hose" model. Updates are always coming to the user, for all installed packages, in a never-ending stream.
I would like to discuss changing the default updates model to a monthly bundled update push.

State of OrangeFS
In this presentation, we will review the current state of the OrangeFS Open Source distributed parallel file system, its architecture and what is coming on the short term horizon. We will then proceed into a discussion on the foundational architecture of OrangeFS 3 and the major changes coming, including topics such as resilience, distributed file handles, policy based object location, distributed background frameworks and arbitrary attribute distributed indexes. We will conclude with a brief overview of PXFS and Parallex research underway.
