Hi fellow mozillians,
One more year FOSDEM is coming. The biggest FLOSS event in Europe will be held as usual at Brussels on January 31st to February 2nd. Mozilla has presence since 2003, and next year we will have a Mozilla Room again.
This is a call for all mozillians (staff and volunteers) to propose your talks for FOSDEM.
This year we have some conditions to apply in order to be more consistent with the Mozilla goals for 2015.
If you are shy, or don’t feel like you want to talk in public, we will open a call for volunteers later. We will have our devroom only one day, so please note that we cannot assure that your talk will be selected due to agenda constrains.
If you want, you can propose a talk for the other dev-rooms in pentabarf.
The topics that we want to cover for this next edition are:
- Firefox Hello
- New developer tools
- Privacy tools
- Firefox Accounts
- Firefox OS
However, we will accept any other topic, but ideally these are the suggested topics.
If you feel that you are not able to talk in public, or too shy, you can suggest topics/talks for the Mozilla devroom, only put some details in the etherpad:
so speakers can also find some inspiration for their talks.
Duration of the talks: 30 minutes including QA
Deadline: December 1st.
Acceptance notifications: December 15th.
Presentations will be recorded and streamed, so sending your proposal it will imply that you accept and give permission for this. Note that recording will be published under the same license as all FOSDEM content (cc-by), however, exceptions could be requested.
