Fedora Keynote: The Biggest Enemy Is Yourself

While the Ubuntu Developer Summit is happening right now in the United States, over in India there is FUDCon, the Fedora conference.

Kicking off today and running through the start of next week (6 November) is FUDCon India 2011. This conference for users and developers of Fedora is happening in Pune, India. Details on this year's Fedora India conference can be found on the Fedora Project Wiki.

Among the talks at FUDCon Pune 2011 are introductions to the Python and Haskell languages, Qt application development, Puppet hacking, Linux virtualization, and other topics. The day in Pune was kicked off by Jared Smith, the Fedora Project leader, giving a state of the (Fedora) union address.

The video for this Fedora keynote can be found on this India web-site.

One interesting point raised during the keynote (and cited by a Fedora contributor), is this statement: "The number one enemy we have today is ourselves. And I mean that with all seriousness. Too many times we shoot ourselves in our own foot, by the way we act, the way we deal with people, in our narrowminded-ness that we develop. And it is not easy to change that. The biggest battles we wage are inside our own head. And so that’s one thing I want to see worked on in Fedora."

It's some interesting food for thought, just not for Fedora but for much of free software development in general. If anything else of interest is raised during FUDCon Pune 2011 it will be passed along on Phoronix.
