X2Go Events of 2016

Fedora at LISA16 Expo, Boston MA 2016-12-07 & 2016-12-08

LISA stands for Large Installation System Administration. X2Go developer Mike DePaulo is also a packager and ambassador for the Fedora Linux Project, so his primary job was to man the Fedora booth and talk about Fedora. It was hard to show off X2Go to passers-by because Mike forgot the HDMI & VGA adapters for his (triple-boot) Macbook Air.

Nonetheless, he was able to show it off to a few people, including FPL (Fedora Project Lead) Matthew Miller.

Mike & Matt also agreed that Fedora's efforts to use dply to let people to try out Fedora could benefit from X2Go.

See for details regarding the talk.

This year, Stefan rocked the show alone, with a surprise visit by Ulrich Sibiller after the talk. We had a room that seats 64 people, and about 2/3 - 3/4 of the seats were occupied. That's quite an improvement over last year's TUEBIX, where h1 only had one visitor to his workshop.
