Slideshow Featured: Chaoyi (cydrobolt), Mike (mikedep333), Justin (jflory7), Corey (corey84), Mohammed — attendee, and repeat visitor to booth, whom I helped with a pesky Dell xps 15 Developer edition dual boot with Windows.
So what is BitCamp ?
BitCamp is one of several Hackathons hosted by MLH (Major League Hacking). As is apparent from the above links, BitCamp and all hackathons hosted by MLH, are centered on a mentoring mentality more of the McGyver aspect rather than the typical nefarious aura that is painted on the hacker community at large. This year was centered mostly on Electronics hacking so ‘How can I get this Raspberry Pi, Arduino Board or other household DIY circuit board to do X, Y, Z?’
So what did Fedora and its ambassadors do at bitcamp?
- Helped with at least 6 installs of Fedora 23 on new / current / return users laptops.
- Chaoyi helped with several Js attendees as a registered Js mentor.
- I helped with several installs of dual boot ( with at least 2 nvidia and / or efi + secure boot).
- Justin helped me with showcasing the XO, even using his personal RIT issued one to showcase some advanced features and flexibility. If you wish to get one of your own, although a newer model as the one we have is no longer on sale, direct donation purchases are still a thing 
- Mike and I had a very engaged and informative ‘ Our Road to Open Source’ campfire talk with attendees on Saturday evening.
- Mike and I had several visitors to the booth interested in x2g0 / remote access options as well as a surprisingly high amount of interest in a kali alternative, which I had loads of fun showcasing the Security spin (technically a lab )  to quench that thirst :).
Think events like this are your thing? Wanna join the Fedora team doing these kinds of things or other non conference / hackathon things like coding, UI/UX refactors, ? Cool check out the links below for more info on how to do so.
