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.

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 […]

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, […]

Video Editing for foss-gbg

Editing videos for foss-gbg and foss-north has turned into something that I do on almost a montly basis. I’ve tried a few workflows, but landed in using kdenlive and, when needed, Audacity.

Five days left

I use to joke that the last week before foss-north is the worst – everything is done, all that is left is the stress. This year, we have the broadest program yet. 25 speakers talking about everything from community policies, GPU isolation, blockchain, historical KDE software, retro computers, IoT, Android, SailfishOS, bug triaging, crowd funding, […]

foss-north approaching

TL;DR; Tickets including food are sold until April 9 – get yours now! Organizing a conference means going through multiple stages. The first parts are the most difficult – signing up for a venue, looking for the initial speakers, finding the initial sponsors. Basically, building something out of nothing. This becomes easier over the years, […]

foss-north – the count down

Every year we try to seed the foss-north event with a set of key speakers. This year, one of our seed speakers is Steven Goldfarb from the ATLAS project at CERN. He will take us on a journey from the vastness of the universe, to the tiniest particles we can observe – all possible through […]
