A step ahead on Drupal 8 with easy accessibility design
The biggest mistake is bigger than Drupal: They don't consider it at all. This isn't a platform thing, it's a problem that is endemic to the web. Big companies get dragged into accessibility via legal threats. Small companies don't even think about it. Just the act of raising accessibility as an issue, and asking your team to keep it in mind throughout the design and development process is a big deal. You have to start somewhere.
Xiaomi is about to release a 6.4-inch Android phone
We're expecting a bunch of new products out of Xiaomi next week, but in the meantime we still have leaks to chew on. The latest is out of TENAA, China's version of the FCC, which is never shy with sharing pictures of upcoming hardware. Xiaomi is about to announce the Mi Max, a truly mid-range monstrosity.

The Mi Max won't be the first 6.4-inch phone. Or "phone," if you refuse to accept the phablet revolution. But it's certainly an ode to size above all other considerations.
Your Beard Doesn’t Intimidate Me Anymore!
Linux is a community environment. Whether it’s the professionals over at RedHat, Canonical, and Suse or the guys who got together and decided to create Hannah Montana Linux, behind every project there’s usually a community. My first attempt at Linux came in the desert in Iraq. We were building a router lab and I had a couple of blade servers lying around but couldn’t get the Microsoft 2003 server key from our IT guys. So the other resident nerd on site and I started downloading Linux Distros to check them out.
OpenSuse was awesome, Ubuntu was in its infancy, and I had no idea what I was doing. At night I’d trudge through forum after forum trying to figure out how the OS could help solve the problems I was creating and experiencing. There were a lot of posts for post-windows users and not all of them were kind. Many of them were written with a rather mocking or haughty tone. There was almost a standard litmus tests on posts where the person would casually mention how long they’ve been running Linux. Anything less than five years was a noob and others on the forum would point it out. There were a lot of good, kind voices, but they were often drowned out by those with a chip on their shoulder.

Unfortunately, my talk is at the same time as Suneel’s, so I won’t be able to attend his, but these are all great talks and you should be sure to put as many as possible on your schedule if you’ll be in Vancouver!

Before and after Fedora releases, there are updates that keep coming in to fix bugs or add minor features to packages included in Fedora. To ensure that these are stable and don’t affect the performance of the existing system, we do “update testing”. Once testing is complete, we share our results and make sure that the developer is aware about the bugs and the success rate of the package. This article will explain how to participate in update testing and contribute to a high quality Fedora release!
