Just a heads up that there are now a few tickets open in the
fedora-magazine-images pagure repo that are open for folks if they want to
have a go at one of the upcoming featured images for Fedora Magazine.
The README in the repo has an outline of the format that we need the images
in, so feel free to jump in and have a go at one or two :)
My name is Lucious Daniels Jr. and I would like to help contribute to the
Fedora project. A little background about myself, I have been using Linux
about six years and I have enjoyed the freedom and fun it has brought to my
computing experience. I studied computer art (3D/Gaming) in college and
that's also where I started getting into computer hardware and custom
building. After having trouble landing a job in the art field, I switched
my focus more to the IT/technical route. Today I have a system
administration position (in a Windows environment) for a county government.
I'm recently Linux+ certified so maybe there's a Linux position in my
future. I still enjoy using graphic software like Gimp and Inkscape. I've
even used them at work, from time to time, for special projects. Joining
the Design Team would give me the opportunity to improve my skills with the
open-source graphical tools and give back to Fedora. Perhaps badges would
be a good place to start.
My history with Fedora is rather short, but I have found it to be a nice
blend of stability vs. leading edge. I find the community knowledgeable and
welcoming. Most of my Linux experience is with the Debian/Ubuntu base, so
it's been fun learning RedHat/Centos way of things.
I'm just starting this thread because I'm starting to work on the default F25 wallpaper (I wasn't sure if this specific conversation fit into any of the prexisting conversations). I know that the general inspiration for this wallpaper should be a progressive innovator/ inventor whose name begins with "A". After much research, the names that popped up the most frequently that fit our criteria were Archimedes and Richard Arkwright. Here's a *very* brief bio on each of them as well as what I would use as a visual inspiration for the wallpaper:
Archimedes: a mathematician, involved in the invention/ development of levers and pulleys, invented the Archimedean screw --> abstract spiralized screw/ implying motion
Arkwright: the debated 'father of industrial revolution", pioneer in the spinning industry --> wheel- inspired wallpaper
I will be posting more specifics to my design ideas as well as links to wallpaper drafts for you all to look at and provide feedback on.
Thanks and cheers to Fedora 25 *clinks glasses*!
We just had our first APAC Design Team meeting!
Gnokii was sadly unable to attend, so it was just myself and kgough in the
meeting this time.
We were a little unsure of how to proceed with an agenda, since the triage
seems to happen in the other meeting, so we started discussing the f25
Wallpaper, and kgough noted that there wasnt a ticket open for it yet, so
we created one to track ideas:
We then went on a bit of a brief brainstorm, and came up with a super-quick
idea of adding a shape to a spiral, and the result is now attached to the
ticket. The SVG is there, so feel free to take the idea and run with it!
Hello, my name is Emerson, my name FAS: em3rson
I am Brazilian and I work as technical support since 2005.
My first job was at a photo printing store, so i had enough contact with image editing.
My second job was at a company that sells instant printing equipment, there I was also technical support, but in demonstration and training on the products I was always involved with photography and images.
In addition to editing and manipulating images, I also edit video and audio (play guitar is a hobby)
Even using Linux since 2007, must confess I do not have much experience with open source image editing tools, companies that have quoted only used Photoshop, so I stand layout for anyone sponsor whether there is any area in which I can contribute, i'm always open to learning
I was away on Friday and coming back found this message from jkurik:
<jkurik> Hi Masha, during the readiness meeting yesterday has been raised an issue with missing Alpha banner for F25 which is currently blocking website team to complete their work for the F25 Alpha release.
<jkurik> I would like to ask, whether you have any information about the banner and possible some estimation when the banner can be finisted ?
<jkurik> I will be happy for any information :)
I thought I'd share with everybody.
From gnokii's email I figured we'll do some brainstorming this Thursday. Looks like we have some ideas, so let's discuss them then =)
