Join us at the Fedora Linux 35 Release Party!

Originally published at: Join us at the Fedora Linux 35 Release Party! – Fedora Community Blog

As we test the Beta release of Fedora Linux 35, I am pleased to announce we will celebrate the final release of Fedora Linux 35 with a virtual Release Party. Please register on Hopin and join us on November 12th & 13th for a short program of informational sessions and social activities. Make sure to save the dates, share the registration, and show up for Fedora Friends & Fun!

Informational sessions will feature updates about GNOME, our new Element instance, and a bunch more current community activities. Fedora Project Leader Matthew Miller will also be giving his “35 Releases in 30 Minutes” talk. Last, but certainly not least, we will be hanging out in the Fedora Museum WorkAdventure for our Hallway track. Thanks to our amazing community for all your contributions to the latest release of Fedora Linux. Let’s party!


Hi Fedora Friends!

I am working the Mindshare Committee to prep for the upcoming Release Party [0], November 12th and 13th. Don’t forget to register here! We picked out a fun virtual activity called Beat the Bomb.

Here is a short description:
> In the immersive world of Beat The Bomb, you’ll navigate your way through puzzles and games that will test your team’s ability to communicate and work seamlessly together. Rack up as many points as you can in the first 2 games to earn time for the final challenge to defuse The Bomb. Then see how you stack up on the Leaderboard.

This should be a lot of fun and we hope plenty of people can join! I am writing this thread today for a couple reasons:

  1. To raise awareness that we are doing an extra event at the RP(we’d love to have you there!)
  2. To poll folks for what time would work best(see poll below). Please reply by next Wednesday the 27th.
  3. To brainstorm team names(add your ideas to the thread :slight_smile:)

Poll: What is the best time slot to schedule the Beat the Bomb activity?

Reminder when voting: Daylight (Summer) time will be over by then in the US and EU, so the conversion is different from what it is today.

I think this list should use magical Discourse features to do the conversions to many different zones (click to see):

I have closed the poll, thanks to everyone who voted! It looks like the event will be on Friday, I will need to confirm the 15:00 UTC time with the vendor but I don’t foresee an issue. See ya’ll there!

Hi folks! I set up the Beat the Bomb activity! They have provided some information for the session, copied below. Can’t wait to see you there :robot: :bomb: :video_game:


Each Player Will Need:

  • A fully-charged PC, Mac Computer , or tablet (at this time, our game does not work on Mobile Phones)
  • Zoom pre-installed (click here to download Zoom), and a front-facing camera.
  • A pair of headphones
  • A strong internet connection
  • All unnecessary applications and browser tabs closed to avoid performance issues
  • You can use this link ahead of time to check for any connectivity or firewall issues: BTB Online

5 minutes prior to your scheduled session:


You will play 3 Games:

  • Sequencer - a numbers and memory game (10 mins)
  • Echo Chamber - a music and communication game (10 mins)
  • Cyberbot - a team communication game (3 mins + Earned Bomb Time)

Your objective is to earn as much Bomb Time as possible in the first 2 games in order to maximize your chances of Beating The Bomb and to secure a top spot on the Leaderboard. With introductions and a debrief at the end, the total experience will last ~45 minutes.


Heads up to the Beat the Bomb players:
There will be a Confirmation Code for our event, which you can find in the Hopin Session titled “Beat the Bomb Game Portal”. This session will show up under the “Sessions” tab in Hopin 5 minutes before the scheduled time.
