Darkserver: Current and Future Roadmap
Darkserver is a set of tools and service written in Python to help developers to debug their applications & libraries. Darkserver project was started to use Build-ID feature of compiler toolchains and help developer tools to identify exact package builds from which process images (e.g. core dumps) come. This can enable their analysis, debugging profiling.
This talk will discuss the current and future roadmap of the project and how we are planning to support different architectures. This project was one of the features in Fedora 17.

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.

Task Automation in Fedora QA
When we talk about automation in Fedora QA, the general assumption is that we're talking about the usual kinds of test automation. While that is what we have been doing, that's not exactly where we're going. Instead of focusing on more traditional test automation, our vision is to have a more generic automation system that can be used for testing in addition to other initiatives requiring a base execution system. Learn about the new push for task automation, what this means, what you'll be able to do with task automation and how you can help.

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.

Ansible is a (GPL) IT orchestration, deployment, and config management framework that is built on Python, SSH, and YAML.
Fedora's already using it for infrastructure, this talk will focus on Ansible features from a higher level as well as go into upcoming roadmap features in Ansible 1.2 and 1.3.
We'll talk about best practices organization, language features, module development, extension, and lots more.
This talk is from Michael DeHaan -- I created the Ansible project, used to work on Fedora systems management bits for Red Hat for about four years (built Cobbler, helped build Func, some virtualization stuff along the way), and am now CTO at AnsibleWorks.
If you attend this talk, you'll not only learn how to simplify your IT infrastructure, you will also learn how to cowsay enable your DevOps.

Beaker (http://beaker-project.org/) is an integration testing system designed to support full stack integration testing across a wide variety of hardware architectures, from the operating system installer, through low level hardware drivers and on up into conventional software application testing.
Fedora QA have considered Beaker in the past, and it may be time to revisit the project. Learn about Beaker's existing capabilities, including autotest integration* and OpenStack integration**, as well as some of our plans for the future from Beaker's current development lead
* The Beaker half of this integration is done, the autotest side is still in progress (should hopefully be ready by August, but that's mostly up to the autotest folks)
