And you’re supposed to have flowers on your head as shown below! This year, midsummer is on June 21, which marks four months from the first foss-north […]

Federated conference videos

So, foss-north 2019 happened. 260 visitors. 33 speakers. Four days of madness. During my opening of the second day I mentioned some social media statistics. Only 7 of our speakers had mastodon accounts, but 30 had twitter accounts. Day two of #fossnorth2019 is starting! @e8johan is giving a quick opening before the key notes. pic.twitter.com/4fScLfY9Y6 […]

foss-north 2019 – it is happening

Pinching my arm, to ensure that this is real. It feels surreal that we’ve gone from seven speakers to an amazing 33 in four years. This years experiments are the training day, and community day. Looking at the various RSVPs for the community day, it looks like we’ll be 130+ attendees. For the conference days […]

fosdem 2019

The first weekend of February means Belgium, Brussels and fosdem. To those of you who has not been there yet, it is a huge, chaotic, crowded, but also wonderful event. But first I was met by a huge snow storm and the following chaos. :-) I’ve been to fosdem a number of years now, and […]

Get your tickets while they’re hot!

TL;DR; Get your tickets from here! For the fourth year running, foss-north is taking place. Now bigger than ever. It all started as a one day conference in a room with too much people in it. We gathered ten speakers and started something that continues to this day. Back then we, the three organizers: Jeremiah, […]
