FOSDEM 2019 - Call for Volunteers

(Anthony Maton) #1

Hello everyone, we are proud to announce the opening of our Call for Volunteers for FOSDEM 2019 in Brussels.

Call for Volunteers : FOSDEM 2019 (Brussels, Belgium) (2th and 3rd of February)

FOSDEM is the largest open-source event in Europe. It will take place as usual in the ULB in Brussels on the 2nd and 3rd of February 2019.

More informations regarding FOSDEM can be found on the official website (

As some of you already know, these past few years we have been sponsoring volunteers to come help us at FOSDEM.

Like we did for the past few years, we will be sponsoring Mozillians volunteers, that will help us with the organisation, for travel and accommodations.

If you are travelling from Europe, you are eligible to ask for a sponsorship (covering transportation and accommodation).

If you are from another region, you are welcome to attend and join us but we won’t be able to sponsor your travel or accommodation.

The plan for this year is to maintain and grow Mozilla presence and impact at FOSDEM. Like each year, we will try to improve and learn on the previous editions.

The selections criteria are similar to last year, and we are going to ask people to indicate their goals for FOSDEM 2019 and skills to help us man the booth and the Devroom.

The selection criteria are based on:

  • Proximity to Brussels (cost wise, not kilometer wise)
  • Level of involvement as a Mozillian/Reps
  • Your goals and Mozilla goals for 2019.
  • Experience in manning a booth or a devroom

There is also an extra blocking criteria:

  • Being in good standing regarding the Community Participation Guidelines.

The form to sign-up is available here : Click here

The deadline is 25th of November 2018 at 23:59 Central European Time!

The selected volunteers will be announced by the 15th of December at the latest.

If you have any inquiry, please feel free to send me an email or to reply in this topic.

Best regards,

The Mozilla @ FOSDEM team.
