Docker Workshop in Fedora Rino Rondan and Matias Kreder

Docker is an open-source engine to easily create lightweight, portable, self-sufficient containers from any application. The same container that a developer builds and tests on a laptop can run at scale, in production, on VMs, bare metal, OpenStack clusters, or any major infrastructure provider. I will talk about how works Docker and make some examples with typicals containers that we use with some applications on a workshop in Fedora

Ovirt Workshop on Centos Rino Rondan and Matias Kreder

KVM Workshop on Fedora Rino Rondan and Matias Kreder

KVM (for Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization solution for Linux on x86 hardware containing virtualization extensions (Intel VT or AMD-V). It consists of a loadable kernel module, kvm.ko, that provides the core virtualization infrastructure and a processor specific module, kvm-intel.ko or kvm-amd.k. I will invite to talk about kvm and their uses in Desktop/Server enviroments in order to create a Labs enviroment for Student and more examples for use it on a server enviroments.

Fedora Robotics and Education Valentin Basel and Eduardo Echeverria

icaro is a hardware and software development, part of the official FEDORA packages designed for teaching robotics in schools using free software and hardware. I want to give a workshop on robotics classroom FISL, for teachers and students. Last year a robot to carry demonstrations in the booth installed FEDORA and had very good results with the general public

Fedora Next Marcel Ribeiro Dantas and Amador Pahim Some decisions and a lot of discussions have happened since the initial Fedora Next talk at Flock 2013. The pace in which things have been discussed withint the Working Groups is so fast that not every contributor has had the time to catch up. Things are not much different for end users, and the lack of understanding may be even worse. The talk will show an overview of the proposal and what has been discussed so far in order to decide the post-F20 era in Fedora.

Alex Oviedo Show my work developing simple server application based on sockets, we use it to control and redistribute messages to customers.

In both cases these customers do the same work, send and receive data through the server, receiving and sending live audio (live voice) and send and receive multimedia data (pictures, graphics and slides).
