FUDCon Live!

Just a quick FUDCon note: We are trying to make it easier for people who are not able to make it to FUDCon itself to see some of the things going on and get some value from the sessions. Check out the FUDCon Live wiki page for a list of sessions, when they're happening, and logs from finished sessions.

Looking at the logs, you may notice that they're logs from IRC. This is because we have people transcribing highlights from all the sessions into irc channels as they're happening. This is an opportunity for people, not just to follow along at home but also to ask questions and join in with the conference sessions.

How to join the Fedora Live IRC channels?

  1. First, view the FUDCon Live schedule to see what sessions are currently taking place.
  2. Then use your IRC client to go to irc.freenode.net
  3. Third, join the #fudcon-room-[NUMBER] channel that corresponds to the room number that the session is being held in.
  4. Sit back, read, and ask questions!

Here's an example:

I'm interested in the Sysadmin & Developer Panel. I see that it is in Room 7 on the wiki schedule. I open up konversation and go to irc.freenode.net as the server. Then I /join #fudcon-room-7 and participate in the conversation that's going on.
