Feedback form is now closed.
Fedora Quick Docs is a great resource for both experienced and new users to get information on how to overcome various everyday challenges when using Fedora. Unfortunately, the collection is "getting on in years." Several articles refer to older Fedora versions, and many topics that have been added in recent years are missing.

Join the workshop and experience the simplicity and lightness of Fedora documentation tools. They allow us to focus on expertise and to contribute without having to acquire special "writing skills" beforehand. So it is easy for everyone to share their experiences. There are two tools: A web based editor and a locally installable authoring environment. In the workshop, you will get to know both tools. And at the same time you get the opportunity to share your knowledge in real and and to improve Fedora "on the fly".

To take full advantage of the workshop, please bring either a computer or some other device capable to use an interactive web UI (i.e. JavaScript active). Only the web based tool would be available then. On a Windows device, a Fedora Desktop VM is required to use the local authoring tool. Additionally, the device needs internet connectivity and you need a Fedora Account. And in advance, to may nominate articles for review in the workshop at https://pagure.io/fedora-docs/quick-docs/issue/615.
