#132 [Talk-25] Toolbox: Using Silverblue for Development

What is your proposal?

Toolbox: Hacking on Silverblue

Fedora Silverblue is the next-generation Fedora Workstation that promises painless upgrades, clear separation between the OS and applications, and secure and cross-platform applications. The basic operating system is an immutable OSTree image, and all the applications are Flatpaks.

This talk is about taking a look at how to set up a development environment on this locked down operating system - how to install your favourite tools, editors and SDKs without DNF. It's going to focus on Toolbox and what it offers to support this use-case.

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.

This talk is meant for anybody who fancies themselves as a hacker and uses Fedora Workstation as their underlying OS.

Is this a…

  • 25/50 minutes: Talk

25 minutes should be enough for this.

Anything else we need to know?

A projector with a Thunderbolt adaptor or connector.

I'm using Fedora Silverblue as my main system for everything and I tried to use the toolbox in past, but had some issues with it.

I would be glad to hear how toolbox looks now.

+1 for this talk. This will be helpful to know what's next, new thing coming for Fedora Workstation. Also, will be helpful to know how to use toolbox for developers.

Should this be a hackfest and not a talk? Are you proposing a 25 or a 50 minute talk?

As mentioned in the proposal, I am proposing a 25 minute talk, not a hackfest. :)

A hackfest would involve working on Toolbox itself to address more use cases and improve the developer experience on Silverblue. A talk would just demonstrate what Toolbox is, why it exists, what it enables, who it is for, etc..

I think we should change the title here — this is why Bex is confused. Something like "Using Toolbox for development on a Silverblue system". Except maybe shorter?

I think this talk is fine for Flock because we want to get community members invested in this way of working. But it might also be something we want to send to general user/developer-focused conferences next year.

Sure. I updated the title to something similar. Is it better now?

user/developer-focused conferences next year.

Totally. :)
