FOSDEM devrooms announced


This year, like the past four years or so, the FOSDEM[0] organizers have
been kind enough to grant folks working on automotive software a space to
present current work, get feedback, and do further development. FOSDEM is
an ideal place to build your network around free and open source software
development. It is one of the largest technical conferences in the world
and by far the largest FOSS event in Europe with well over 5,000 attendees.

The content of FOSDEM is highly technical and many software projects use it
as a key checkpoint and forum for dissemination of their status. This draws
very experienced software developers who understand how open source works
and are domain experts in many cases. In addition to technical content
there is a community devroom as well as a legal devroom which draws often
some of the most experienced and renowned legal experts in the world,
including Ministers of the European Parliament.

This year, like previous years, I hope to assist Philippe De Swert
organizing the Embedded, Mobile and Automotive devroom. I cannot do this
without your participation. Please consider sending a talk to FOSDEM this
year, February 4th and 5th in Brussels, Belgium. More details are
forthcoming on exactly how you do that but if you were to start formulating
your proposal now you'll have and advantage because the deadline comes
quickly and the devroom always gets nearly twice the amount of submissions
that it can hold, despite being usually a big room with talks held over two
days. Examples of previous talks can be found on FOSDEM's web site[1].

​Many thanks,
