Ideas/Brainstorming

For this audience, we'll want to cover:

  • Fedora Workstation on sysadmin desktops and laptops. (Many people will, however, run a corporate standard build; either RHEL-based or a proprietary OS, due to company policies.)
  • Fedora Server — talk about how it can fit in with RHEL and CentOS as part of the whole ecosystem. "Stay ahead of changes" is a good story here.
  • Fedora Cloud — same
  • Fedora Atomic — I bet containers and container tech will be a big topic
  • Possibly work with the Cloud folks for an atomic host demo of Cloud Server / Server installs and intregation

Important Deadlines

For 22 Oct FAMNA meeting:

  • More detail on needed funding if any requested from mattdm
