OSGeo stand at FOSDEM 2014
FOSDEM (Free and Open Source Developer Meeting) is a free and non-commercial event organised by the community for the community. The goal is to provide open source software developers and communities a place to meet to.
This year, OSGeo will participate with a stand. The stand aims to be the meeting point for the OSGeo members of German, Belgian, Dutch and French chapters, as well as open source geospatial enthusiasts.
Date and location
1-2 February, ULB Solbosch Campus, Brussels, Belgium, Europe, Earth.
Organisation of the stand
The stand offered by FOSDEM consists of:
- one 180x80cm table, positioned in one of the buildings with developer rooms, for the entire duration of the conference. In some cases, a second table may be possible, if you have a good reason to need two.
- two chairs per table
- one power socket type C/E (if you require adapters or additional sockets, please bring them yourself)
- fast uplink shared wireless Internet access
The stand should be occupied by at least two people for the duration of the conference.
The organiser of OSGeo participation is Anne Ghisla, with the help of local OSGeo members.
The stand should provide English versions of the marketing material, and German/Dutch/French/.. where available. TBD: mark availability of material from participants/local chapters.
- OSGeo-Live DVD/USB keys
- Tshirts (?)
- Mugs (?)
FOSDEM requires at least 2 people at the stand for the whole duration of the conference. It will be nice to have German, Dutch and French-speaking volunteers at all times.
TBD: divide the days in timeslots and create a table to be filled with volunteer names.
TBD: see how to manage donations collection, and/or selling of swag, both on FOSDEM side and OSGeo side.
