I would like to share some knowledge on Rust. It's a programming language which is blazing fast and powers the new Firefox Quantum.
This session will start with what rust is, setting up rust and then writing a small application.
We do have a rust SIG in Fedora and we would love to see more Fedorans coming forward to test rust and cargo(package manager for rust)
experience in Fedora Ecosystem.
Here's a quick update on our classroom session plans for the Fedora 29
Release cycle based schedule
We've recently moved to a release cycle based classroom schedule. The
idea is to do our sessions between a two releases, so that:
- we can work on release critical activities as needed before the
- we do not clash with the release marketing just after a release is
- we can fill up the relative silent period between two releases.
- we can try to organise sessions that focus on new features that each
This wiki page describes the schedule in more detail:
Fedora 29 cycle
So based on this, we've chosen 8 sessions for the Fedora 29 cycle:
A Pagure ticket acts as our tracker:
and there are individual tickets for each session that are mentioned
- L10N 101
- IRC 101
- Podman and/or containers 101
- LaTeX 101
- VIM 102
- Creating Fedora badges.
We need more hands!
For each of these sessions, we need people that can help us organise
- magazine post writers
- bluejeans link (https://pagure.io/fedora-join/Fedora-Join/issue/83)
- survey (optional)
We also need someone who will generally check on the preparation for
each session, e-mail the instructors, remind everyone of their duties,
and so on.
Please help us out if you have spare cycles. These tasks are not
technical at all. :)
I will also post on the community blog. I have also sent this to the join
mailing list, but please reply to the classroom mailing list with any
