FOSDEM is a yearly free and non-commercial event in Brussels, from February 5th till February 7th 2010. It's organized by the community, for the community. Its goal is to provide free and open source developers a place to meet. This page is to coordinate Maemo participation. See also the Maemo activity on FOSDEM 2009

[edit] Tracks

There will be Maemo content in several different tracks this year, reflecting the nature of the project as both a contributor to upstream projects and an entire distribution.

Here you will find information about Maemo content in each of the tracks.

[edit] Security - main track

[edit] Embedded

The biggest contingent of Maemo-related content will be in the Embedded track.

The embedded/mobile room is the place to be for people with an interest in everything small, hidden, with different CPU's and/or a gadget or mobile device.

Here we discuss and present things like hacking your phone, PDA or router and everything about cross-compiling. The people that gather here are usually doing tons of cool stuff with small low-powered devices, from playing music to controlling big and complex systems.

[edit] Crossdistro Summit

H.1302 / H.1308
The FOSDEM organisers want to push the envelope of their mission even further by organizing something along the lines of a "distribution summit" during FOSDEM 2010.
The idea is that rather than having several distributions with their own respective and individual Developer Room, we will host mixed conference rooms where talks and sessions will be organized by topic, with contributors from all distributions attending and participating. Any linux distribution can participate.
