FOSDEM - the Free and Open Source Developer's European Meeting - is
nearly upon us. FOSDEM is the most developer-focused FOSS conference,
and will take place in Brussels, Belgium on 6th/7th February (not
forgetting the FOSDEM beer event on the Friday night :) . Geeks from
all the major FOSS projects are expected to be there - including
If you are an experienced OpenOffice.org developer, we need your help!
OpenOffice.org will have again a DevRoom at FOSDEM. The main goal of the
DevRoom is to attract developers to work on and with OpenOffice.org. We
want to show developers that there is nothing magic about OpenOffice.org
development, and that our active and enthusiastic developer community is
keen to help newcomers.
We want to help developers get started on the code - by explaining how
the source code is structured and how our build environment works. We're
also keen to show developers how to integrate OpenOffice.org in their
own applications, using interfaces, APIs, components, etc. We want to
encourage developers to produce exciting new extensions for OpenOffice.org.
If you are able to share your in-depth technical knowledge and
enthusiasm then please get in touch without delay. We are looking for
people who can:
- give a 45 minute talk; or
- run 90 or 120 minute workshops
Please send your proposals (see below) to juergen.schmidt (at) sun.com
as soon as possible - by the end of this week (latest Saturday 10th).
Make it your New Year's Resolution to recruit a new developer in 2009 -
and help us start the ball rolling at FOSDEM in February.
Your proposal should include
- a title
- a short abstract
- your full name
- a short bio of you and ideally your role in the OpenOffice.org project
- request for sponsorship (travel, lodging)
We know that we are again a little bit late this year and that it is
short-time. But we promise to improve it next year ;-)
Thanks in advance
