i just booked my flight to attend and speak at the Open Source India
2017 - October 13-14.
I would be happy see the Indian Fedora Community and my indian friends
from the null community attending, if you can, please join me ;) - and
if not please spread the word!
According to the planning i am invited to give a keynote and one
The Keynote Topic will be an easy one - as my very first talk outside
Germany was in Bangalore at the Nimhans Convention Center in 2009 during
foss.in along with the Fedora Track Day - now 9 years later i will use
the opportunity to wrap up what happened since then with my activities
with Fedora, ISECOM and null - what we achieved and how it helped Open
Source and Open Standards in general and how it helped in the real world.
In my technical session i have planned to demonstrate how open standards
like the Risk Assessment Value from ISECOM´s Open Source Security
Testing Methodology Manual, can be a perfect addition to the proprietary
Thread Modelling, developed by vendors - i will demonstrate technical
examples along with Fedora Security Lab - and also real world examples.
As i already traveled to india on fedora budget this year - this time
the Trip is kindly supported by the Conference Organizers and out of my
Open Source India is scheduled for October 13-14. The 14th edition of
Asia's largest open source convention is taking place at NIMHANS
Convention Centre in Bengaluru.

Cross posting to a wider audience to inform about the new Ambassador from India

Fedora Diversity team is planning to celebrate Fedora Women Day, 2017
 across the globe.
It will be great if we can plan multiple events in India too at
different cities with the help of active ambassadors.
Here is more information .
Please respond if you are willing to help organize the event in your
city. Here is a template wiki page to do the event in your city .
NOTE - It will be nice to do the event in month of September, but if
there are some unavoidable situations, one can plan it do early or later

We are planning to organize FAD Delhi on 26th August, 2017.
For the same, we are looking forward for people interested in delivering a talk during the event.
Regarding the topics, we are looking forward to having talks related to Development, How-to sessions and general awareness on some of the favorite open source software of your choice. Please feel free to drop in your idea, if you think it will help us grow the FOSS culture in Delhi :)
