Fedora Atomic Logo Idea

The Fedora Cloud Working Group recently decided that in Fedora 24 (or perhaps a bit further out depending on how the tooling/process can support it) that the Atomic version of Fedora is going to be the primary focus of the working group. (Background discussion on their list is available too.) This has an affect on the Fedora website as the Fedora Cloud edition shifts from a buffet of kind of equally-positioned cloud- and container-related images to a more focused set of images optimized for container hosting (using Atomic) and a set of more clearly ancillary images that are also useful for cloud/container deployment of Fedora that aren’t based on the Atomic platform. We need to position these images accordingly on the website to meet the new model. Matthew Miller and I discussed how the Cloud WG decision might effect the website and ideas for how we could update the website to suit for Fedora 24.

Convert getfedora.org/cloud to focus instead solely on Atomic (maybe redoing the URL to getfedora.org/atomic). Build out a separate cloud image …

Fedora Developer Website Design

For the past few weeks I have been working on mockups and the HTML/CSS for a new Fedora website, the Fedora Developer portal (likely to eventually live at developers.fedoraproject.org.) The goal of the site is to provide resources and information to developers building things on Fedora (not primarily developers contributing to Fedora itself.) A bunch of folks have been contributing content to the site, and Adam Šamalík and Petr Hracek set up the initial first-cut prototype of the site, configuring jekyll to generate the site and building out the basic framework of the site. The prototype was shared with the Fedora Environment and Stacks Working Group mailing list, and after some feedback and iteration on the initial prototype, Petr asked me to take a look at the overall UX / design of the site. So that’s how I came to be involved here. 🙂 Competitive Analysis and Sitemap First, to better understand the space this site is in, I took a look at various developer sites for all sorts of OS platforms and took in the sorts of information they provided and how they organized it. I looked at: Red Hat Developers – main nav is streamlined – solutions, products, …
