= Questions/Requested Information

  1. What is your proposal?

This is the formal CFP pitch as it would appear in an Abstract:

In 2001, the Agile Manifesto, a collection of simple principles for software development, was published. It helped shape how development teams work. Meanwhile, open source has its own set of principles that promote and build community, transparency, and collaboration, and meritocracy. On paper these two sets of principles match closely. But in practice, using Agile in an open source project may make community members wary, especially volunteers.
This is extra challenging for Fedora, since Red Hat sponsors the project and contributes in order to meet business goals. The Community Platform Engineering team has a foot in both the business and open source camps to support Fedora and CentOS. How can we better interact with global volunteers and Red Hat, increase confidence in delivering on important goals, and do it openly and transparently? How do we embrace and not isolate? How do we ensure that we add value? How do we actually function? We are about to embark on an Agile Transformation and we want you to come on this journey with us.

What I want attendees to get:

  • Who the CPE team are, how we work, how we plan, how we can work together
  • How we try and balance being part of Red Hat and Fedora from a priority perspective
  • Our plans for moving the team forward to make us deliver more value for the Community
  • How you can get involved and how you can help shape how we work as this will be Open Source Agile
  1. Who in addition to the speaker needs to be in the room for this to succeed? This could be the audience you need to reach, other participants in the conversation, or other stakeholders.

Anybody who wishes to interface with our Infrastructure team or make a request for enhancements to a service or indeed a new service / feature that the CPE team would need to own or build.

Typical lecture style room setup is perfect for this. I would like either a white board and some markers or a Flip Chart so we can get some live feedback in the room
