Flock ( August 12-15 2015)

Flock 2015:  Flock to Fedora 2015

So what is  Flock and  why am I going, and why should you care about:

Flock is a 4 day Fedora  conference where we  think of  better way to  deploy / implement and create things that  make  everyone’s  life  easier  both fromt eh  enterprise / sysadmin side and the  average  everyday  layman.

Some  sample talks / discussions this year:

  •  10 things that  kill Open Source (just those folks and projects that are  free as in liberty and beer)  And  no  Open source  does not  mean  insecure or  even secure by default OR low budget — Its a  community hive mentality,  and like any  community  some  bad  habits / players   are always  at the very least a ‘drive-by’ threat.
  • Two factor authentication with GPG,  A   topic  I wish every one  could attend.  We no longer  live in a world  where that  post it note password reminder is  safe or  worth the time to stick in on your monitor  or  it that  desk drawer.
  • Docker — Lovely stuff for both development uses and  secure instances like  web servers  even  key vaults  ( the  ssh / gpg / kerberos / Authorization kind )
  • Understanding / using DNSSEC,  another security  talk about how to keep your  home networks or  enterprise  secure  from things  like  DNS Amplification attacks
  • Cryptography for the  beginner

Gimp / assorted Photoshop   &  Developer Tools  Workshops / best practices

So where is this ?  and  can you still get in ?

When: August 12-15th

Cost:  To attend:  FREE  To Sponsor: $1,500 –  $10k +   for sponsorship info  email flockinfo@fedoraproject.org
