  • Testing & Fuzzing Microconference Accepted into 2016 Linux Plumbers Conference

    Testing, fuzzing, and other diagnostics have made the Linux ecosystem much more robust than in the past, but there are still embarrassing bugs. Furthermore, million-year bugs will be happening many times per day across Linux's huge installed base, so there is clearly need for even more aggressive validation.

    The Testing and Fuzzing Microconference aims to significantly increase the aggression level of Linux-kernel validation, with discussions on tools and test suites including kselftest, syzkaller, trinity, mutation testing, and the 0day Test Robot. The effectiveness of these tools will be attested to by any of their victims, but we must further raise our game as the installed base of Linux continues to increase.

  • Linux Keeps On Getting Better

    It may take a while sometimes but many eyes do improve Free/Libre Open Source Software. Linux has just had an important set of bugs trampled.

  • X.org Foundation Election - Vote Now!

    It's election season in X.org land, and it matters: Besides new board seats we're also voting on bylaw changes and whether to join SPI or not.

    Personally, and as the secretary of the board I'm very much in favour of joining SPI. It will allow us to offload all the boring bits of running a foundation, and those are also all the bits we tend to struggle with. And that would give the board more time to do things that actually matter and help the community. And all that for a really reasonable price - running our own legal entity isn't free, and not really worth it for our small budget mostly consisting of travel sponsoring and the occasional internship.

  • First Brno Linux Desktop Meetup

    The desktop engineering team in the Red Hat office in Brno is quite large, we’ve got over 20 developers working on various desktop projects here, but there is no active community outside Red Hat. We’re also approached by students who are interested and would like to get started, but don’t know where and we’d like to have an event to which we can invite them, talk to them about it more in detail, and help them with things beginners struggle with.

  • ZeMarmot and GIMP at GNOME.Asia!

    While Libre Graphics Meeting 2016 barely ended, we had to say Goodbye to London. But this is not over for us since we are leaving directly to India for GNOME.Asia Summit 2016. We will be presenting both ZeMarmot, our animation film project made with Free Software, under Libre Art licenses, and the software GIMP (in particular the work in progress, not current releases), as part of the team. See the » schedule « for accurate dates and times.

  • Want more inclusivity at your conference? Add childcare.

    Providing conference childcare isn’t difficult or expensive, and it makes a huge difference for parents of young children who might want to come. If your community wants to (visibly!) support work-life balance and family obligations — which, by the way, still disproportionately impact women — I urge you to look into providing event childcare. I don’t have kids myself — but a lot of my friends do, and someday I might. I’ve seen too many talented colleagues silently drop out of the conference scene and fade out of the community because they needed to choose between logistics for the family they loved and logistics for the work they loved — and there are simple things we can do to make it easier for them to stay.
