As you know the CfP for the devroom has been open and you may have noticed that we have only half a day that we also need to share.
Therefore, we will have only 4 sessions and they should look like this:
We didn’t decide yet which of the two colors will be for which project.
Due to the very low number of sessions, we will not attempt to compose a selection committee.
Managing a committee to find the candidates, collect their decisions, communicate and especially ask for votes (and yes often these are very busy people) is a time consuming process.
For the committee, reviewing the proposed sessions is a lengthy procedure and agreeing on 16 sessions is already very complicated so only for 4…
However, you may have also noticed that there will be two pre-FOSDEM MySQL days. We will check the proposed FOSDEM MySQL Devroom session to see if there is any content that could be presented at these pre-FOSDEM MySQL days. I will then contact the speakers and invite them.
Don’t forget to submit inspiring sessions, we look forward to reading them !
FOSDEM 2023 will take place on Sat 4 – Sun 5 February 2023.
However, there are some changes in the organization. Each project will be responsible for its track, so we will divide the devroom into two sub-tracks.
For the convenience of the speakers and participants, we will not mix the two sub-tracks.
You will have the possibility to follow the track you are interested in, or of course both
The other big change is that the devroom is only half a day. This will make talk selection very complicated as MariaDB and MySQL will only have 4 sessions each !
The MariaDB, MySQL & Friends devroom will be held for half a day, probably on Sunday afternoon.
The MariaDB track will also be holding a virtual event, which will take place outside of the physical devroom times. This will be similar to last year, where a video presentation will have to be prepared well in advance of the physical event.
If you submit a proposal and it is accepted, you will be required to confirm that you accept the FOSDEM CoC. If you have any questions about the CoC or wish to have one of the devroom organizers review your presentation slides or any other content for CoC compliance, please contact us and we will do our best to assist you.
