foss-north – the count down

Some people likes to talk at conferences, other dread it. At foss-north, we welcome both new and experienced speakers and work hard to make the experience pleasant to all. We are looking for contents on a wide variety of subjects. Here are some topic ideas to encourage you to submit a talk proposal:

  • Teach us your favorite tool.
  • Talk about your pet project.
  • Talk about your favourite programming language.
  • Talk about the friends you’ve made through FOSS.
  • Talk about a piece of software that you are missing.
  • Talk about how you organize your work around FOSS.
  • Talk about why FOSS helps you create your product or delivery your service.
  • Talk about software licenses.
  • Talk about software patents.
  • Talk about how you use FOSS at your school.
  • Talk about your own FOSS conference.
  • Talk about anything that you want!

Of course we want your talk to be about free and open source – that is what foss in foss-north stands for.

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 Patricia Aas from the Vivaldi Browser. She will be speaking about isolating GPU access in its own process.

“Chromium’s process architecture has graphics access restricted to a separate GPU-process. There are several reasons why this could make sense, three common ones are: Security, Robustness and Dependency Separation.

GPU access restricted to a single process requires an efficient framework for communication over IPC from the other processes, and most likely a framework for composition of surfaces. This talk describes both the possible motivations for this kind of architecture and Chromium’s solution for the IPC framework. We will demonstrate how a multiprocess program can compose into a single window on Linux.”

It is just 5 more days left of the Call for Papers. With the help of our great sponsors we have the opportunity to transport you to our conference if you are selected to speak. Make sure to make your submission before March 11 and you are in the race.

Every year we try to seed the foss-north event with a set of key speakers. This year, one of our seed speakers is Carsten Munk known from Jolla, libhybris, Meego, Maemo and more. This year he will speak about his new endevour Zipper – bringing blockchain technology to mobile devices.

“Zipper is an Ethereum based mobile platform which brings blockchain based services to our smartphones in one seamless and user-controlled experience.

At first, Zipper provides everyday smartphone users an easy and safe way to manage their identity and private keys. This makes it possible for anyone to access blockchain based services out-of-the-box in an easy and intuitive way – just like Apple’s services on iOS today – while being in full control of their identity, transactions and data. Zipper works in an isolated compartment in Android and Sailfish OS smartphones, making Zipper and its wallet secure while still easily accessible.”

It is just 6 more days left of the Call for Papers. With the help of our great sponsors we have the opportunity to transport you to our conference if you are selected to speak. Make sure to make your submission before March 11 and you are in the race.

foss-north – the count down

We are approaching the count down to foss-north 2018 – at least from an organizer perspective. This year we will be at Chalmers Conference Centre, in the centre of Gothenburg – the world’s most sociable, friendliest city. So, save the date – April 23 – and make sure to drop by.

The reason why it feels like the count down has started is that it is just 10 more days left of the Call for Papers. With the help of our great sponsors we have the opportunity to transport you to our conference if you are selected to speak. Make sure to make your submission before March 11 and you are in the race.

When moving to Chalmers we ended up with a larger venue than last year so make sure to get your ticket – and bring your friends. The saying “the more the merrier” definitely applies to FOSS conferences!
