Topic: Fedora and the Future of Operating Systems

Presenter: Fedora Program Manager, Ben Cotton

Operating systems are not boring, but they’re no longer the end of the Linux development pipeline. As interest shifts up the stack to containers and other abstraction technologies, what are operating system makers to do? This talk describes how the Fedora Project views the future of the Linux distribution, why it’s still relevant, and how we’re going to get there. The operating system may not get the attention it used to, but it still plays an important role in providing the foundation that modern applications are built on.

Fedora Program Manager, Ben Cotton, is a meteorologist by training, but weather makes a great hobby. Ben works as a Fedora Program Manager at Red Hat. He co-founded a local open source Meetup group, and is a member of the Open Source Initiative and a supporter of Software Freedom Conservancy. Find him on Twitter (@FunnelFiasco) or
