Hackfest: Fedora Docs Learn and Hack

Presented at Flock 2016, Kraków Poland on 4 August 2016

This repo contains the slides and files used for the talk and demo I presented. The talk was originally supposed to be presented along with Pete Travis, however, he, unfortunately, could not make it.

I am very grateful to Pete Travis, Zach Oglesby, and Shaun McCance for helping me with this presentation and filling in the pieces from the Docs Fad that I could not attend.

Talk Description

This two part workshop/hackfest will help you impact Fedora’s Documentation in a positive way. First, we’ll learn about the style, tone, and structure of our docs. Second, we will work on open bugs and improving docs. It’s like an assisted writing clinic on steroids. Hacking can be focused on open documentation bugs, enhancement requests, or any area that interests you Presenters: Pete Travis (randomuser) & Brian Exelbierd (bex)
