Getting Started in Fedora QA
It can seem like a daunting task to get started testing Fedora in a helpful way; the people involved can feel so far away over IRC, the meetings too official for a beginner to participate in, and if you do participate, why would you be taken seriously? How would you know what to test, and how to test it? And if you tested something, who would want to know your test results and where would you post them? This talk aims to answer these questions and more and present the ins-and-outs of Fedora testing to beginners and seasoned developers alike. The ideal outcome of this talk is to introduce more users to Fedora testing and the resources and people that can make testing a worthwhile challenge. Participants are asked to bring their computers to follow along with the talk and have a FAS ID.

This talk is aimed at beginners!

Improve Fedora's User Experience - A Simplified Approach to User Testing
User research is a crucial point for following a user-centered design approach. However, there might not be enough resources to prioritize it.
We will cover the value of doing research, choosing the right methods, organizing and running research, in just a few steps with minimal resources. These methods can be applied by any Fedora contributor to any project they are contributing to.

This session is for everyone who is interested in helping improve Fedora's user experience. The talk does not target any specific audience and participants do not need any prior experience to attend.

Automatic Bug Reporting for dummies
- Do a brief introduction to ABRT, FAF and retrace-server.
- Go through basic functionality and features of ABRT that people are most likely not aware of.
- Together, create an event to get more information from crashes in bug reports.
- Show people how they can use FAF to discover and fix bugs for which there is no Bugzilla ticket.

We would love to receive feedback and ideas from developers/users to make the whole process from bug reporting to bug fixing better.
