MALANG - Saturday, February 2, 2013.
Two Local Linux community from Malang, KOLAM (Malang Linux Community) and
KaliUMM (Linux Community from Muhammadiyah University), collaborate to
arrange the Fedora 18 release party.
Release party theme this time was the cow, that's why this time we have a
party at De Nin's Super Steak. Yes, this time we will feast on steak and
milk. Eh, but it's actually not just steak, here we also provide some
snacks made from raw beef, for example beef spaghetti bolognese and others.
Without much further ado, the event was opened by Dita who invited both
community organizers to introduce himself. After this introductory session,
continued by the Dana from the KaliUMM who review the Fedora 18.

On 3 February 2013, at Lumintu. It has been successfully held Fedora 18
release party Klaten. The event was organized by
Prasetya <https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Rizalprast>. KPLI
Mr. Suwondo aka “Mbah Suro Dhemit” and some friends also helped the
proceedings. Events are planned in the Pancingan 1000 changed to Lumintu
because on that day there is an order from the other party without the
knowledge of my approval. The event begins at 01:00 pm and was attended by
almost 60 participants, from various regions Karanganyar, Klaten, Madura,
Sukoharjo, Surakarta, Yogyakarta. The party started with the material of
the new features Fedora 18. After that, followed by Mbah Suro with Fedora
introduction for beginners and also discuss the open source community in
the area around Klaten. In the party we give away 50 DVD Fedora 18, Fedora
55 Pin and some gifts.
Most had never used Fedora, and first-time participants Fedora release
party. Linux distro on average they already know is Ubuntu and Mint.
Various responses we get when the party. But overall it can be concluded
that they are interested in Fedora and the community. Many questions arise,
- What is UEFI?
- How to contribute to the Fedora Project?
- Are there local Fedora community?
- Where is the information center of the Fedora Indonesia Community?
- How to flash android device in Fedora?
- Why there are some communities in the name of Fedora Indonesia
- How to use a modem that is not in accordance with Fedora?
- How the steps to become an ambassador?
Currently Fedora users in Klaten already registered with this party. It
would be easier if there was a program/event Fedora for the future. Because
of the long discussion session, the installation session had to do on their
own time. There were some participants who immediately wants to be a
contributor Fedora, then I point them to http://join.fedoraproject.org . I
think this is a good start for Fedora Klaten area, and also the
participants from Yogyakarta area very excited to establish the local
Fedora community. The party was also the inspiration for the younger
generation about the world of open source. The party then we finish off
with a meal together and take pictures together at 04:00 pm.

A Fedora workshop was organized at Sandip Institute of Technology and
Research Center (SITRC) , Nashik , Maharashtra, India between
February 2-3, 2013.
I began the day's proceedings with the "i-want-2-do-project.
tell-me-wat-2-do-fedora"  presentation in the seminar hall at
SITRC. The participants were introduced to mailing list, communication
and effective project guidelines when working with free/open source
software. This was followed by an introduction on window managers, and
demo of the Fedora desktop, GNOME, Fluxbox, and console environments.
After lunch, I gave an introduction on system architecture, and
installation concepts. Basics of compilation and cross-compilation
topics were discussed. An introduction on git was given using the
"di-git-ally managing love letters"  presentation. After a short
tea break, we moved to the labs for a hands-on session on GCC. This is
a presentation  based on the book by Brian Gough, "An introduction
to GCC" . Practical lab exercises were given to teach students
compilation and linking methods using GCC. I also briefed them on the
use of Makefiles. C Language standards, platform-specific and
optimization options with GCC were illustrated.
Lab exercises from the GCC presentation were practised on the second
day, along with the creation and use of static and shared libraries.
The different warning options supported by GCC were elaborated. A
common list of error messages that newbies face were also discussed.
After the lab session, I introduced them to cloud computing and
OpenStack , giving them an overview of the various components,
interfaces, and specifications. I also gave them a demo of the
OpenStack Essex release running on Fedora 17 (x86_64) with the Horizon
The college was affiliated to University of Pune, and had deployed
GNU/Linux labs for their coursework. Now they are autonomous, and want
to explore and expand their activities. They have a local user group
called SnashLUG . The college is 15 km away from the city of
Nashik, which is around 200 km from Pune. The bus journey from Pune to
Nashik takes six hours, and you can book tickets online through
Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) . There is
frequent bus service between Pune and Nashik.
Thanks to Rahul Mahale for working with me for the past three months
in planning and organizing this workshop. Thanks also to the
Management, and Faculty of SITRC for the wonderful hospitality, and
their support for the workshop.
Few photos taken during the workshop are available in my /gallery .
