Conferences in February

Next month will start with conferences… Tomorrow I go for FOSDEM 2014 then one day break (to change bags) and then Devconf.cz in Brno, Czech Republic.

It will be 6th visit at FOSDEM for me. I do not plan to man a booth for any project and hope to find time to visit at least few talks — this year list is quite long:

  • A Method for Distributing Applications Independent from the Distro
  • Anatomy of kdbus
  • ARM: Allwinner sunxi SoC’s and the community behind it
  • CentOS: Planning for Variants and the Next Chapter
  • Ceph
  • Considering the Future of Copyleft
  • Cross Distro Automation
  • Debian Contributors
  • Discover DoudouLinux live!
  • GNURadio as a general purpose DSP environment
  • How we found a million style and grammar errors in the English Wikipedia
  • Introducing the Meson build system
  • IP risks for OSS developers
  • Is distribution-level package management obsolete?
  • Legal issues from a radical community angle
  • lima driver: Opening up the Mali instruction set
  • Lumicall — an open alternative to Viber
  • MINIX 3 on ARM
  • No more IPv4
  • Nouveau — On-going work, demos and research
  • OpenJDK on AArch64 Update
  • OpenPandora and a peek into the future
  • osmocom: Overview of our SDR projects
  • Persistent Memory
  • Porting FreeBSD on Xen on ARM
  • Reproducible Builds for Debian
  • Software Archaeology for Beginners
  • State of the X.org foundation
  • State of Thunderbird
  • Sunxi KMS driver
  • Technical introduction to the deeper parts of Sailfish OS, a Qt5-Wayland based mobile OS
  • Testing Kernel GFX Drivers
  • The evolution of Android’s runtime
  • The Lima driver
  • UEFI is not your enemy
  • Virtualization Dungeon on ARM
  • Who ate my battery?
  • Why You Should Be an Open Source Project
  • Xen on ARM

As usual it would be success if I will manage to see 30% of them as for me FOSDEM is a place to meet people from other projects to share ideas rather than spend time on sessions.

Next will be Devconf.cz but first ARM Hackfest a day before at Red Hat office (an option to check my badge). This conference is more Fedora related and I hope to meet interesting people there to discuss how to do some things. No talks selection as there will much smaller amount of them so I can do it between sessions ;D

If you want to catch me at conferences then use Google Hangout, Facebook Messenger or just mail me. I plan to have local SIM card to be always online.
