FOSDEM 2007

FOSDEM 2007 is ending now. This was my first one and I enjoyed it. I met so many people, which I know from IRC, that I can not even list them 🙂

Lot of interesting devices we had on OpenEmbedded booth including:

  • Neo1973 phone (OpenMoko powered) prototypes
  • Trolltech Greenphone (which got donated by Trolltech)
  • Skeye.pad brought by Kernel concepts
  • Skeye.integral (also brought by KC)
  • Motorola A780 phone with GPE^2
  • Ipaq 5xxx running OpenZaurus (unofficial image)

First day took more of my attention then second because I spend more time on OE booth answering lot of of questions from users, other developers, giving informations about OE, what software is running on Neo1973 phone (and showing same software on my Progear webpad)… I also managed to view some talks. At the end of a day I was so tired that I get to the bed and slept whole night.

Second day was a bit other. I had more talks on a list, there was GnuPG keysigning party too. One of talks was Lorn Potter talk about Qtopia which was too boring. The funny moment was when I get back to the booth one time and was asked by someone who I do not met before (he was Michael Dominic Kostrzewa (one of Maemo developers)) “Do you have Nokia770 device?” After my negative answer I got brand new Nokia770 device (it is charging now). So probably soon new device will join Angström world 🙂

Tomorrow we will have small OE discussion session and return to homes.

Next year I will be here for 100% 🙂
