Facebook Loves Fedora (and Chef)
Facebook as an organization has been using Chef to manage our CentOS servers for years, but recently we've started offering Fedora as a fully-supported desktop option for our employees. This talk will cover the challenges involved in managing a fast-moving platform (upgrade notifications, security updates), securing them (encryption and escrow, password strength enforcement), managing devices while not breaking interactive use cases (all those pesky locks!), and allowing users to customize their setup but in a way that is auditable through what we call API cookbooks

Toolbox: using Silverblue for development
Fedora Silverblue is the next-generation Fedora Workstation that promises painless upgrades, clear separation between the OS and applications, and secure and cross-platform applications. The basic operating system is an immutable OSTree image, and all the applications are Flatpaks.
This talk is about taking a look at how to set up a development environment on this locked down operating system - how to install your favourite tools, editors and SDKs without DNF. It's going to focus on Toolbox and what it offers to support this use-case.

This talk is meant for anybody who fancies themselves as a hacker and uses Fedora Workstation as their underlying OS.
