Online Fedora Workshop Recording and Survey

We recently held an online, introductory Fedora workshop, and the slides and recording are now available.

If you’d like to follow along with the hands-on exercises you’ll need a local Fedora installation (we used version 5.1.0 for the workshop). If you don’t already have a local instance you can try the new Docker build. Please follow the directions in the readme after installing Docker, and let us know if anything is unclear. The 5.x-maintenance branch will build Fedora 5.1.0, while the main branch can be used to get the latest 6.0 development snapshot.

This workshop was our first attempt to bring some of our training materials online, and we’d like to continue building out these resources for the community. Please take a few minutes to fill out this brief survey and let us know which training topics are of most interest to you.
