FOSDEM 2016: Event Report

FOSDEM 2016: Event ReportOrganizing the #DistroDevRoom

 

As a longtime FOSS advocate and conference-goer, I have woefully from afar followed the press and event coverage after FOSDEM for many years, wishing on my lucky stars that someday, I too might be able to attend this premier FOSS event in Europe. And this year, finally, I got the opportunity to not only attend, but to help organize the Distributions DevRoom. Devrooms are a sort of mini-track within the larger conference, and ours focused on the common problems that Linux distributions, packagers, and other developers working at grand-scale community collaboration have to face.

FOSDEM 2016 Distro Devroom: Call for Participation

FOSDEM 2016 – Distributions Devroom Call for Participation

FOSDEM.org Logo

The FOSDEM Distro Devroom will take place 30 & 31 January, 2016 at FOSDEM, in room K.4.201 at Université Libre de Bruxelles, in Brussels, Belgium.

As Linux distributions converge on similar tools, the problem space overlapping different distributions is growing. This standardization across the distributions presents an opportunity to develop generic solutions to the problems of aggregating, building, and maintaining the pieces that go into a distribution.

We welcome submissions targeted at developers interested in issues unique to
distributions, especially in the following topics:

  • Cross-distribution collaboration issues, eg: content distribution and documentation
  • Vendor relationships (eg. cloud providers, non-commodity hardware vendors etc )
  • Future of distributions, emerging trends, evolving user demands of a platform
  • User experience management ( onboarding new users, facilitating technical growth, user to contribution transitions etc )
  • Building trust and code relationships with the upstream components of a distribution
  • Solving problems like package  and content management (rpm/dpkg/ostree/coreos)
  • Contributor resource management, centralised trust management, key trust etc
  • Integration technologies like installers, deployment facilitation ( eg. cloud contextualisation )

Submissions may be in the form of 30-55 minute talks, panel sessions, round-table discussions, Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions or lightning talks.

Dates

  • Submission Deadline: 10th Dec 2015
  • Acceptance Notification: 15th Dec 2015
  • Final Schedule Posted: 17th Dec 2015
