I hope there are already several people registered but I don't know
as I am not an administrator of this list.
Let me tell you about the current status
On FOSDEM there are 4 options for representation
2) Main track talks
3) Lightning talks
4) Talks in dev-rooms
1) Our Perl stand request was accepted, mail added below.
We will need to prepare things to show at the table and things to
For the former we will need people who can be at the table during FOSDEM
and can show various projects.
For the latter we will need to prepare things with the long term
in our mind.
I hope TPF will decide to provide a budget for this.
Ideas that came up so far were
- wooden round tuits
- collectible cards (similar to what Oslo.pm had) but with CPAN modules on
the cards and not people (or maybe even the pictures of the authors?)
- Live Linux CD and Strawberry Perl with lots of preinstalled projects
2) Main track - I don't know any Perl related talk that was accepted there
3) Ligtning talks - these are 15 minute long talks
The dead-line for talk submission is 20 December.
Please encourage people to submit talks
4) The list of Dev-rooms is here:
I think we should encourage Perl developers to submit talk proposals
to the relevant dev-rooms.
I have sent mail to the Bricolage mailing list and a few WebGUI developers
in the hope they will participate in the OSCMS room.
Sent a message to the Bugzilla team asking if they participate.
They might go
with the Mozilla room though I am not sure if that's the best
place for them.
OpenOffice.org and ODF
Sent a mail to Jean-Marie Gouarné author of OpenOffice::OODoc
in the hope
that the can participate.
I am sure there are some perl programmers who know a bit about databases
and how they can be used from Perl or how can databases tested. etc.
There are going to be a number of interesting things there.
I'd be happy if we could have a discussion there on how to better
package perl and CPAN modules on the various distros. How can CPAN
authors interact better with downstream distributions?
There could be talks on testing as well.
There are several other dev-rooms. Which ones are relevant to Perl?
Who could participate on those and give a talk?
Below is the mail about the Perl stand.

Subject: [FOSDEM] Perl stand acceptance
Cc: devrooms <devro...@fosdem.org>
Your request for a stand of Perl at FOSDEM 2010 has been accepted, and
we will put the following at your disposal:
- on Saturday from 10:00 to 18:00 and Sunday from 10:00 to 17:00,
- 1 table(s) of 2 meter width and 1 meter depth, 2 seats per table,
- most probably in the AW
- best-effort wireless interenet and one(!) type C/E power plug.
If you want to decline this offer, please tell us as soon as possible.
We provide only one power plug per stand, but you can hook up several
multi-socket power chords. Because we can not provide those for every
stand, we must ask you to bring your own multi-socket power chords.
To make the stands look more professional, we would also like to ask
you to bring a table cloth that covers the table and the front of it.
The front side is a very good place to put your logo and name in large
on, this will increase your visibility.
We will stick A4 sheets with your project name on the tables, so
you'll know where to install stuff. The best time to build up your
stands in the H building is around 09:00. From 09:30-10:00 the people
start to rush in, heading for the opening talks. In the AW building,
things are typically more quiet until the opening talks are finished,
which is around 12:00.
With kind regards,
The FOSDEM stand organizers.
