Python Classroom Lab


A new Python Classroom Lab will be created in 3 variants: Workstation based, Docker based and Vagrant based. It's an important step for our Fedora Loves Python initiative. The main audience are Python teachers and workshop instructors.


Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 26
  • Last updated: 2017-01-19
  • Tracker bug: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>

Detailed Description

A new comps packages group with Python development tools will be created and a new Lab (or Spin) for teaching Python or Python related topics will be available from as well as from the Docker Hub and Vagrant Atlas.

A work in progress for the lab is available on GitHub.

Benefit to Fedora


One of the benefits of Fedora for Python developers is the ease of setting up Python development. This Fedora Lab will make it even easier for teachers and instructors to use Fedora in their classrooms or workshops. Ready to use operating system with important stuff pre-installed - either with GNOME or as a headless environment for Docker or Vagrant.
