Drupal devroom call for speakers

Quote from Dries Buytaert / Drupal:

Mark your agendas because the Drupal project got a 200-person developer room at FOSDEM on Sunday, February 24th. FOSDEM, which stands for Free and Open Source Developers' European Meeting, is a yearly free and non-commercial event for the open source community, held in Brussels (Belgium). With more than 3,000 attendees coming from all over the world, FOSDEM is the biggest open source event in Europe.

We will use the developer room to meet, discuss, and talk about Drupal. Right now, we're looking for speakers so let us know in the comments if you want to give a presentation. Alternatively, feel free to request presentation topics as well. Joeri Poesen from Krimson is the lead schedule wrestler.

Research Room: call for participation

The organizers of the Research Room have launched a call for participation for their developer room at FOSDEM 2008.

If you'd like to present your work our project (on that topic), contact them before January 24th.

Announcing 2008 Developer Rooms

Here is the list of Developer Room requests that have been accepted for 2008:

Call for Developer Rooms and Stands

The deadline has passed. The call for Devrooms and Stands has ended.

FOSDEM will take place on 23 and 24 February 2008, and we provide so-called Developer Rooms ("devrooms") as well as Stands (booths) to Free and Opensource projects. For every devroom we invite a project to organize talks, open discussions and/or hacking sessions. We offer an environment for developer collaboration, but we have only a limited number of rooms at our disposal.

Stands are provided to let projects present themselves, draw interest and talk and share knowledge with the vast crowd of developers attending the conference.
