#26 Support for Nest with Fedora 2021
Closed 2 months ago by bcotton. Opened 2 months ago by riecatnor.

Nest 2021 is coming up and there are many bits to coordinate. So, so, SO many necessary bits, and many more that would just be super nice to have. Last year I took most of the organizing on myself, with the help of some individuals who helped me pull it off. I think it went well, but I'd like to see growth, improvement, and even more engagement at this years Nest (to the tune of 1000 registrations and 60-70% turnout!).

I think this would be a great chance for organizing-minded community members like the pgm team to get the hang of HopIn and organizing online events for Fedora. I think we will need quite a bit of promotion to hit our goals, but it is absolutely doable! Because of the short time frame, I would be happy to get more than one pgm person helping out if their are folks interested :D

Please let me know if you need more info. Thanks!


I'll see who's interested and get someone assigned next week. In the meantime, can you please provide the below?

  • Start date: Do you need help now or are you planning ahead? Is there a "too late" date?
  • Length of support: “indefinitely” is an option here, too
  • Estimated weekly work: how much time does the assigned team member need to plan on?
  • Meeting times: when do you meet
  • Communication channels: where do you do asynchronous and synchronous communication
  • Planning location: where can we see what you’re doing now? For example, a Pagure repo or a Taiga board
  • Documentation: If you have documentation, where is it?

Happy to help where I can. I've been conference staff for Southeast Linuxfest since 2017, so I've got familiarity with the craziness of conference organizing. We've done virtual events for 2020 and 2021. Our software stack is a bit different than what we use for NEST, but that wont be an issue.
@riecatnor if I end up being the one to get assigned for this, we'll figure out a time to sync up and go over your plan and all the places you need some assistance.

Hi! Apologies for the template oversight!

Start date: Do you need help now or are you planning ahead? Is there a "too late" date?
Absolutely need help now :)

Length of support: “indefinitely” is an option here, too
Through Nest (August 5th-8th) and into the next week or two so we can do a couple wrap up tasks.

Estimated weekly work: how much time does the assigned team member need to plan on?
2-3 hours of work a week until the week before/of Nest. There might be reason for us to hustle, or we may have everything set to go. I would like the person to attend Nest, but it doesn't have to be for the entire time.

Meeting times: when do you meet
TBD, it will be a small team, I have a couple other volunteers so I can put together a time once we have the force assembled ;) I am in EDT and we have someone in APAC so I can say it will be most likely be in the morning hours for EDT.

Communication channels: where do you do asynchronous and synchronous communication
As of right now, email and message to me direct. mnordin@redhat.com and riecatnor on IRC. I am also on telegram or matrix. I check telegram most often. Once I have a couple folks I will make a message/telegram/signal group, whichever people prefer.

Planning location: where can we see what you’re doing now? For example, a Pagure repo or a Taiga board

This def needs some work from me :)

Documentation: If you have documentation, where is it?
Last years event outline, feel free to request access or drop an email here to be added. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1L3lUunNAtS23mfapf_9LNALxy5U4XhxGIA7j3qjKE2s/edit#heading=h.21nt5fcswu7c

I am interested in this. I had anyway on my list to help with Nest but this way I can gain some experience of program management side of things.

I'd be happy to help, especially if you guys need any help on the A/V side, though I'm exciting to do anything. I have some relevant experience for the live Audio and video, I've done live streaming, produced audio, and video for Fedora before.

@riecatnor this has been assigned to @q5sys who will be in contact.

I'm getting a 404 for that doc.

That's because I unwisely named it nest.md. I just git mved it, so the file name is correct now.

Ah, I see you fixed it.
