The first day started with keynote talk by Dennis Gilmore on “Delivering Fedora for everything and everyone”. He discussed about the future plans for Fedora release engineering team. Next I moved to a different room where a talk on GlusterFS was being held by Vikhyat Umrao. This was the first time I heard about Gluster File System so was pretty much curious  to learn more about it. After that I attended back to back two more talks on GlusterFS, which are  “Geo-Replication and Disaster Recovery in GlusterFS” by Bipin Kunal and “Efficient data maintenance in GlusterFS using Databases” by Joseph Elwin Fernandes . I must add session by Joseph Elwin Fernandes was great, he is a really good speaker 🙂 . After lunch i attended Jared Smith’s talk on “Whats new in Drupal 8?”. I learned about new features that are going to be added to Drupal 8, like REST support, editing content directly, easy installation and language selection etc. The day ended with a keynote talk by Harish Pillay on how to evaluate open source projects and spoke about “open source prospector” a tool to track FOSS projects over the globe.
