I think this is a special moment of the year, where in less than two weeks is possible to meet a huge amount of Open Source contributors in person. Obviously you will need to take few flights, but it’s definitely worth.
DevConf this year was great. I’ve been able to assist to a huge amount of talks (more than 20) and the majority of which were very interesting.
As always in conferences, there are themes heavily discussed and other completely absent.

This year, I have been able to go to Flock :). Flock location this year was Krakov (Poland). Since my flight arrival time was very close to Mailga’s one, I waited him at the airport and then we went together to the Flock location. This has proven to be a good idea, since we had the time to speak about some important topics around the Italian Community. We then arrived to the Flock location, were we discovered a problem with the rooms booking, but that got resolved in a quick way by Bexelbie.

My last day at Brno has come, and I took the bus to Wien Airport, where I later got a plane to Milan.
Overall, this was a very nice experience. I’ve met a lot of very interesting people and a lot of people I already knew but only by their IRC and FAS name. It’s always nice to be able to give faces to the names you always read.
I really look forward for the next Fedora Event that probably it will be Flock 2016 for me.

Today there were a lot of Fedora talks and sadly I was not able to see them all since there were two Fedora tracks.
The most interesting talk I’ve assisted today was probably the Denise Dumas and Matthew Miller one about Fedora.
Being the last day of the conference, it ended earlier so we (EMEA Ambassadors) were able to gather and meet to work a little bit on the 2017 budget.

Today I spent the morning looking at very interesting sessions mainly about containers. Probably the most interesting talk of the day has been the one by Josh Bressers about security.
In the afternoon I’ve had a very pleasant meeting with the Fedora Internationalization team to see where the various community are and what we can do to improve the current situation.
Later I went to the party, but having misinterpreted the situation, I walked with Patrick and Ralph to their meeting place before going to the right location.

This morning things started in the right way. My day started with Tim Burke’s talk and it was very interesting.
After that talk, I attended the Adam Miller talk about immutable infrastructures and Daniel Walsh talk about Docker vs Systemd and I enjoyed them all :).
Later on I had a very nice hallway talk with Remy DeCausemaker about local communities and translations, followed by an actual meeting about globalization in Fedora.

Few days past from FOSDEM and I’m at yet another conference :).
Today I flew to Wien and then took a train to Brno.
After the hotel check-in I went to the conference location and I had a nice time with the Red Hat people while we were preparing the location for the event. The majority of the work was already done when I arrived, but few things were still missing (mainly indications to make users life easier like arrows pointing to the rooms, schedules, etc) so I got the opportunity to help :).

A couple of weeks ago, I’ve announced the availability of AWS tools for Fedora. I’m very happy to announce that today they are available in the EPEL7 repository as well.
The Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) repository is an RPM repository managed by the Fedora community that creates, maintains, and manages a high quality set of additional packages for Enterprise Linux, including, but not limited to, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), CentOS, Scientific Linux (SL), and Oracle Linux (OL).
