Event Report - Fedora Meetup 15th June 2019, Pune, India

We started planning for this one month back. Since we are doing this meetup regularly now, most of the things were known, only execution was required.

Following are the highlights

  1. We started bit late. (Learning, next time should start late around 11:00am)
  2. We started at 10:30am with quick introduction of all the attendees. It was really motivating to see few community attendees travelled from 30km radius to attend meetup.
  3. I demonstrated about the new features in Fedora 30. Really though we upgrade but sometime, we miss to see the features. Also we quickly gone through Panteon Desktop.
  4. Parag delivered his session on modularity. It was very engaging presentation and attendees asked good questions. Parag suggested attendees to go actual trial for better understanding the concept.
  5. We took break after it for Snacks. Red Hat office was pack with multiple events on this date. walk-in interview + one more meetup. We got sports room, where we not only enjoyed snacks but also played games :)
  6. After this Praveen Kumar delivered presentation on CoreOs. Though, he delivered slides prepared by Sinny but he explained things well. He also demonstrated Fedora CoreOS.
  7. We had some time and Kushal asked audience if they have any questions on Qubes OS. He demonstrated it to attendees. It was good demonstration.

Overall, very good meetup. Thanks to :
  • Fedora Mindshare group for meetup approval.
  • Akshay Gaikwad for quickly providing design.
  • Proactive Organizers (Ompragash, Parag, Pooja, Suprith, Me) and last but not least 
  • all the attendees.

It was really great to see many people joined the meetup.  One of the attendees shown interest to help meetup in his college campus. Looking forward for next meetup with new topics.
