FUDCon KL, Day 2 and Day 3

May 24th, 2012 by Aditya Patawari Leave a reply »

FUDCon KL Day 2 had talks for newbies. There was very less for me to do since my talk on Puppet was the next day. The day started with keynote from Joshua a.k.a. sitapati. He talked about documentation and translation and encouraged the local people to contribute in building the first ever crowd sourced book in their regional language. After keynote, I went to hangout room to check if someone is there. I wanted to package graphite and nodejs and revive the kde netbook spin. Day 2 for me was mostly hacking around and talking to people as they came with questions. FUDPub was scheduled later that evening. I did miss the noise created at FUDPub Pune but the cake at KL was delicious. There was a point when my stomach was full but the temptation of cake..!

Day 3 was more eventful for me in the sense that I had a talk to deliver and not to mention it was the last day of FUDCon KL. My talk was scheduled at 11 am so that was the first thing I did. It seems that Ankur recorded it and uploaded it on archives.org. Goh Choon Ming’s talk was a short one. For the first time I got to learn the difference between hypervisor based virtualization and container based virtualization in a proper way. Post lunch we shifted to a bar camp style format again. Syamsul’s talk on Boxgrinder was amazing. I am planning to use to to build some custom stacks for ec2. Closing keynote was as inspiring as it can get. Abu Mansur delivered it and he talked about how and why we should encourage open source. The benefits we can get out it. I must say, he speaks with power and authority which is expected from a keynote speaker.

The FUDCon KL came to the end. I guess it was the least disastrous FUDCon ever. All the guys Izhar, Maverick, Gurdeep and all the volunteers did an excellent job. Putting together an event of this magnitude in just 8 weeks is really impressive. I hope I’ll see them again in some other event.

Postmortem:

I have packaged graphite (3 packages total) and they are up for review. I think Praveen has already taken graphite-web.
Here are the links for the Review request:
graphite-web: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=824357
carbon: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=824348
whisper: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=824361

With help of Danishka’s kickstart file, I think I would be able to revive kde-netbook spin in a short time. I already have a build with me. I need to test it out before going ahead.
