I want to encourage you to talk at FOSDEM 2024


FOSDEM is one of the most remarkable events for free software and opensource developers, advocates, humans, and robots.

The event contains two main streams - the talks selected by the organizers and covering various general topics and the developer rooms.

The developer rooms are spread across multiple buildings at the venue and are focused around specific concepts, technologies, and ideas. This is where the fun is.

Apart from the Distros room where this community usually is, many other topics allow you to shine and contribute back to the community.

Since the deadline is approaching (Dec1-5 for the majority of the devrooms), I’d like to encourage you to take a look at the rooms, find one or more that you could contribute to, and propose a topic. It takes no more than 10-15 min.

Next year, there will be even one new room about the future of the e-mail. Maybe you could help shape it?

I hope we will get many Fedorians to speak and share their wisdom next year.


As one of the co-wranglers of the Distributions devroom, I am happy to answer questions about it and what we are looking for!
