Community Operations (CommOps) <https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/CommOps>
Community Operations (CommOps) aims to build and improve community infrastructure to better communication across the Project and to help tell the story of Fedora.
A badges workshop was conducted during FOSDEM 2016 and a lot of people
logged into Fedora Badges for the first time during FOSDEM.decause
suggested then that we should prolly compile some metrics to see the
activity of these people thereafter. Do these users contribute continously?
or Are they just active during FOSDEM?
38 users logged into Fedora Badges first time.
Out of these 24 hadnt contributed in past year(new users)
People showed an increase in participation post FOSDEM even previously
active users :)
The link contains the Pre, Post and FOSDEM activity details of these users

Link to datagrepper containing list of users who logged into fedbadges for
first time in FOSDEM :
datagrepper query here
The details and the graph is also in the attached spread sheet. The graph
doesnt contain one user - apevec as he had very high activity as compared
to other users and hence adding the user made the overall activity
difference less discernable.
So I've been working on a Join page for Commops at :
Please note it's only at draft stage and I would like to invite comments
from everyone on what they think about this. According to the feedback,
probably by the weekend, we can connect this to the main Commops page.

Hi folks, as per Remy's above request just an fyi that I'm going to work on
this ticket. First task ever with CommOps, first task ever with Fedora, I'm
As Remy suggested in the ticket I'll try getting answers over IRC first. Now
off to tasting the real work ;)
I just want to introduce myself. I am a junior web developer and recent
graduate of Flatiron School.
I met with Remy in January at the WiTNY Conference and I have been looking
into the Outreachy program. I'm interested in getting involved in the open
source community and I noticed that the Outreachy project listed for 2016
is the Fedora Kernel Tooling Project. However, there are several other
links that show other projects.
I would like to know, is there a link with all the projects available for
round 12 or is the kernel tooling project the only one? Also, is there
someone I can direct all my questions to throughout this process?
Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon.

Subject: Nice To Meet You @ WiTNY
It was a pleasure meeting you at the Women in Tech New York Conference
(WiTNY), I value the knowledge you shared on open source software
resources, how to contribute to the community in order to learn and
ultimately advance a career in tech. A quick overview about myself, I am a
recent graduate of the Flatiron School Web Development Fellowship.
Throughout the program I was able to build Ruby on Rails web applications
with my new found knowledge of MVC frameworks, database query interfacing
with SQLite, and front-end technologies like Bootstraps and HTML5/CSS3.
I have been looking into Outreachy, the mentoring program you suggested,
and it seems like a promising opportunity I would definitely like to be a
part of. I would also like to obtain an internship position that allows me
to use my creativity, problem solving skills, and the tech skills
I acquired at Flatiron. If you hear of any opportunities, please keep me in
mind. I appreciate your help in advance.
Also for more information about my experience, you can visit my LinkedIn
<https://www.linkedin.com/in/sylviadolmo> profile or check out my work on
Github <https://github.com/sdolmo>. Thank you for your time and I look
forward to hearing from you.

I happened to stumble across the big group picture from Flock 2015 at
the Strong Museum of Play. Maybe a month ago or so, we were trying to
hunt down this picture. I just grabbed this off of Facebook, so it's
probably not the best resolution, but it's workable.
I just wanted to drop this somewhere, anywhere, so it isn't accidentally
forgotten again or missed. I'm not sure if we necessarily have somewhere
for image hosting, but if so, maybe we can add this somewhere to hang on to.
Maybe a good starting point for a new Flock featured image… :)
