Free software and the wish to be good

The free software movement has recently been going through a lot. From the introduction of Commons Clause, to the resignation of Stallman. It seems like the mood in the air is that now is the time for a redefinition of what free and open source software actually is. My view on this is that free […]

Change of Plans

TL;DR; foss-north IoT and Security Day has been cancelled, or at least indefinitely postponed, due to health reasons. For the past three weeks (from August 11, to be exact) I have had a fever that I couldn’t really shake. At the same time my wife had pneumonia for which she was successfully treated. Antibiotics is […]

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 […]

foss-north 2019: Community Day

I don’t dare to count the days until foss-north 2019, but it is very soon. One of the changes to this year is that we expand the conference with an additional community day. The idea with the community day here is that we arrange for conference rooms all across town and invite open source projects […]

foss-north 2019: Training Day

The 2019 incarnation of foss-north is less than a month away. This year we’re extending the conference in two directions: a training day and a community day. This time, I wanted to write about the training day. The training day, April 10, is an additional day for those who want to extend the conference with […]

The program has not yet been set, so getting one of these tickets, you trust us to deliver a great conference – something that we’re very thankful for. We do have some parts of the schedule fixed: the trainings and some initial speakers. […]
