FOSDEM 2020 anyone?

Post by yorik »

I think I'll be able to go to FOSDEM next year (february 1st nd 2nd in brussels), I'll submit a talk proposal...
@sliptonic is also interested in going (not sure if that will work yet)

Anyone else would be interested in going? That would be a great opportunity to make a kind of FreeCAD event. This year they even have space for satellite events: https://fosdem.org/2020/fringe/

I'm interested in going but I'm not 100% yet.
Like my FreeCAD work? I'd appreciate any level of support via Patreon, Liberapay, or PayPal! Read more about what I do at my blog.

I plan a EU trip in early February, so I'll consider :mrgreen: . Brussels isn't particularly convenient, though.

They just told me that the Brussels Hackspace is offering free space for devs to meetup the week prior to FOSDEM (I think a few days after as well). If we want to foment something, we'll have a home :)

Is it possible to (or worth) reaching out to our sister projects under the BRL-CAD GSOC umbrella? I mean if we're going to "foment" something, go big! :lol:

Amazing Kurt!
This is really beginning to look like a major FreeCAD event.

Anyone else? Come, folks! :mrgreen:

I'll reach out to Sean from BRLCAD and the other CADs too.

Great! Tell us if yes and who, it would be great to meet.

We will have a FreeCAD talk, that we'll give all 3 (sliptonic, kkremitzki and me) together: https://fosdem.org/2020/schedule/event/freecad/
And we're trying to foment a kind of side event too. At least have a room where we can sit and chat.
I'm making some merch too, stickers that I'll bring together, and t-shirts that I'm thinking of printing in Brussels prior to the event. I'll also share the file here so anyone can print one at home too.
