Call for Volunteers: FOSDEM 2024 (Brussels, Belgium) (3-4th of February 2024)

Hey folks,

We’re so excited to announce that we’re going to participate in the upcoming FOSDEM 2024 in Brussels, Belgium. And with this, we’d like to open the Call for Volunteers.

FOSDEM is the largest FOSS event in Europe. Next year, it’ll take place on the 3-4th of February 2024 in Brussels. You can read here to find out more about the event.

This time, we will also be sponsoring Mozillians (travel and accommodation) who will help us organize Mozilla’s participation.

Unfortunately, only volunteers traveling from Europe are eligible for the sponsorship. People traveling from outside Europe are welcome to join us, but will not be eligible for one of our sponsorships.

We will have a half-day DevRoom at FOSDEM (check here if you’re interested in having a talk) and we expect to have a booth (to be confirmed). Volunteers will help us with the organization of the booth.

The selection is based on the following criteria:

  • Level of involvement as a Mozillian
  • Experience in staffing a booth or a devroom (however, do not be discouraged if you are a first-timer)
  • Cost of travel to Brussels (we will evaluate that depending on where you will be traveling from)

Most importantly, Mozillians will need to be in good standing with our Community Participation Guidelines.

To request a sponsorship, please complete this form by the 8th of December 2023 at 23:59 Central European Time. The selected volunteers will be announced by the 15th of December 2023.

Should you have any questions, please get in touch (or comment down here).

Best of luck!

What about if I want to help on the booth, but don’t need any sponsorships (except a few beers)?

@bogomil I just updated the form, so people can indicate it directly on the form. However, don’t worry if you’ve submitted an application already.

Hi folks,

We have reached out to everybody to which we have offered a sponsorship.

If you did not receive an email by now, you have unfortunately not been selected. We hope you can participate in the next one, though.

If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to me.
