So you'd like to speak at FOSDEM 2022 but you have some questions

Hi there!

If you’re interestedin speaking at FOSDEM 2022 but you’re unsure of where to start, of what might be a good topic, or you’ve never spoken pubically before, you can post your question here.

We’ll try and help answer any questions you might have.

Is FOSDEM 22 going to be in person or virtual?

Hiya @jcklpe FOSDEM 2022 will be 100% virtual. Personally I think the organisers made the right decision to do that.

If you’re interested in speaking: here’s our call for submissions: Call for Participation: Open Source Design Devroom at FOSDEM 2022 - Open Source Design

Go on. :slight_smile:

Yeah that makes sense. Probably for the best. I just want an excuse to visit lol

@ei8fdb Any way to submit a lightning talk/“Pitch your project” talk for the Open Source Design room? I couldn’t find any guidelines on that.

Oh, yes I understand. Let’s hope that 2023 will be in person. :crossed_fingers:

Ah this is a good point @mirek. Usually we do the pitch your project (PYP) session on the day. But maybe we should make a way that people can submit their project for PYP.

Just to check - you do know that those talks are 2-3 mins maximum, right?

Yes, I know about the time limit. My problem is, I have a project that I’d like to talk about, but definitely not for 20+ minutes. While 5 mins might be ideal for me, 2–3 mins is enough for me.

If proposals will be limited to the day rather than in advance, how exactly will sign-ups work?

OK good, just to make sure that you’re aware of that. :+1:

This is a good question. :slight_smile: We’ll figure out if it’s possible to make a sign-up process before the day. If you can give us a few days we’ll update here. OK?

Great! Thanks for being so responsive and in general thanks for helping organize this wonderful devroom! :slight_smile:
