AMENDMENT: Cockpit: A Linux Session in your Browser

Cockpit is the new system admin UI for Linux. It's a default part of Fedora, and available in other distros as well.

Cockpit turns a Linux server into something discoverable and usable. All while being zero-footprint: It goes away when not in use.

In this talk we'll how how Cockpit works: It's an actual linux user session that you drive through your browser, running with user privileges, and accesses to the native system APIs and tools. Cockpit reacts instantly to server changes made by other tools.

We'll also show you how to contribute, and talk about what you'll see next in Cockpit.

(Please note that the presenter of this talk changed after the booklet went to press.)
