Fight Linux fragmentation with Flatpak
Flatpak is a cross-distribution framework to build and deliver sandboxed desktop apps. My open-source project, which focuses on the integration of web-based music streaming services with Linux desktop, has struggled with Linux fragmentation for years. Finally, I switched to Flatpak packages as the sole distribution method in March 2017 and I have never looked back.

What were the reasons to retire DEB & RPM packaging? Did Flatpak come up to my expectations? What are its benefits from the developer's point of view? How to develop directly inside the sandbox? Are there any rough edges?

Flatpaks in Fedora - an update
At DevConf.cz last year, Fedora's efforts to create Flatpaks in Fedora infrastructure out of Fedora Packages were presented. At that point, development was far along, but the capability was not yet deployed in Fedora infrastructure. A year later, Flatpaks are being built and are available for users to install.

This session will cover:

* What has changed in the last year?
* What progress has been made at creating a Fedora-based runtime and application Flatpaks?
* How do Fedora packagers and other interested get involved?
* How do users try out the Flatpaks?
* Automation and other things currently being worked on.

Running virtual machines in the Flatpak sandbox
A journey through the challenges of running a virtualization stack in the Flatpak sandbox with the purpose of distributing GNOME Boxes in immutable image-based operating systems such as Fedora Silverblue.

Starting from orchestrating the build of all the required components of the virtualization stack, to poking holes in the Flatpak sandbox in order to provide device passthrough, safe file sharing, and a bridged network between host and guest.

Desktop on an OpenPOWER system? Yes!
Dog-fooding, openness, privacy. There are various reasons why to use an OpenPOWER system as a daily desktop/workstation. Thanks to the OpenPOWER ecosystem we have the hardware now, thanks to the distributions like Fedora we have the operating system and applications. What works and what doesn't, what were or still are the challenges.

Virtual workstation as a daily computer
Over the last few years, virtual machines have significantly grown from just a testing space on a workstation to powering the internet and many modern services. But can they be used as a full replacement of a personal computer? Let's investigate.

This track is part of our young speaker series.  This talk may be presented in Czech.
