Hi everyone, as I suggested some days ago I truly think we should participate next year in FOSDEM. For those who don’t know, FOSDEM is the biggest free software conference in Europe. A massive event with the most successful open source communities out there. Some communities even hold their core team meetings a day before or after.
As we are also a proud and somewhat successful community, it’d be a great place to tell our story and engage more contributors. This time there is one more reason. We can go meet the brand new OFN Belgium people since the event is being held in Brussels at the Université Libre de Bruxelles.
So, my suggestion is to apply for a lighting talk.
Lighting talks are short — 15 minute long — talks on a wide variety of topics. Anyone who has something interesting to say about an open source or free software topic can apply. We particularly encourage topics that do not fit in any of the developer rooms.
the deadline is November the 24th. I can lead this but is there anyone else willing to help/join? I’ll share a proposal for an outline we can discuss on.
Besides, I think it’d be a great opportunity to meet again with the folks in Europe cc @MyriamBoure @Rachel @luisramos0 @hugo @Matt-Yorkley. At Coopdevs we plan to book an apartment for coop members & some other dev friends and take the chance to strengthen our relationship with Coop IT Easy and others.
