Fedora 24 Graphical Upgrade Test Day - Red Hat, Bangalore

I got my first exposure to the Fedora community and open source contribution. It was an exciting event held on the 16th of May 2016 at Red Hat, Bangalore. In total, there were four people attending the event in person. Many others attended the event through Hangout &IRC. Sumantro (QA Intern), Karthik (Storage Intern) , two new open source enthusiasts (Vipul Siddharth and Prakash Mishra) and I attended the event at the Red Hat office in Bangalore.

Vipul Siddharth and Prakash Mishra had come from Christ University, Bangalore. They have a keen interest in contributing to open source technologies. Sumantro deserves a special mention. He mentored the new comers and also took us through the entire Red Hat enterprise workflow operations.

The Fedora Graphical Upgrade procedure is here. We were able to make the Fedora Graphical Upgrade test day a success. One great news is that the new comers got a part-time internship opportunity at Red Hat. Congrats Vipul Siddharth and Prakash Mishra! :)

In this event, Each and every one exposure their workflow in Red Hat. I had an opportunity to know the operations of other teams like the storage team and the quality testing team. This event also helped us to group together quality assurance (Sumantro), storage (Karthik) and infrastructure (Me) :) and share our point of views with each other.

We published the result on the Fedora test results page. The link for Fedora test results page is here. In upcoming days, we plan to work on the Fedora release validation testing project. 

Finally I want to say thanks to Sudhir Dharanendraiah (QA Manager). He is organised the Fedora Graphical Upgrade Test Day very well and also helped us a lot.
