Hi,

As the winter, FOSDEM 2023 is coming…

    https://fosdem.org/2023


Three questions:

 1. do we run for a booth?
 2. who is in?
 3. who is volunteer to make that happens?

Well, #1 is a good opportunity to expose the beautiful kakemodo [1]. :-) 

If we go for a booth and if we are accepted, it means we need volunteers
at this booth.  A week-end is quick and also long.  More we are and
greater the experience would be. :-) Volunteer for #2 does not mean be
available the full week-end – although that’s also a possibility –
instead, it could mean some rotation of 1-2h at the booth.

About #3, it means checking the FOSDEM website and helping in the
synchronization of the proposal, stickers, etc.

WDYT?  It will still the 10th Years of Guix – day 1 of calendar “year“
is arbitrary. ;-)

Having a booth can be a way to have informal conversations with folks
who are curious about Guix or haven’t heard about it before.

IIRC, Julien was responsible for a booth at FOSDEM for Linux From
Scratch some years ago, so maybe they can share their experience?

For this to be viable, I suppose there needs to be about at the very
least 4 people (that’d still be half a day each!).  However,
pre-pandemic, there would usually be somewhere between 20 and 40 Guix
people joining, so I’m sure 10 of us or so could take care of the booth
for a couple of hours.

Thanks,
Ludo’.

I'll be happy to help!

From my experience with LFS it's important to have enough to share with people. We had stickers (obviously), and also bookmarks and even printed versions of the book. Even with three people we could manage the stand, but the more we are, the easier it becomes. Remember you have to attend the devroom too!

We had issues managing stocks of stickers. Having too many displayed at once will incentivise people to take a huge pile to share with friends at home, but it also means the stocks deplete quickly :)

One nice thing to have is also a table cloth with our logo/graphics. Some distros have live-CDs.

I can take care of ordering that, stickers and anything else if I get reimbursed. I can't come up with nice graphics by myself though, so please share any ideas :)

I am a bit lost with FOSDEM website, news and deadline.  How does it
work to ask for a booth?

Deadline for stands is November 15th. Quoting the website:

FOSDEM 2023 stands call for proposals

Back after two virtual editions, FOSDEM 2023 will take place at the ULB on the 4th and 5th of February 2023. As has become traditional, we offer free and open source projects a stand to display their work “in real life” to the audience. You can share information, demo software, interact with your users and developers, give away goodies, sell merchandise or accept donations. All is possible! 

We offer you: 

One table (180x80cm) with a set of chairs and a power socket.

Fast wireless internet access.

A spot on stands.fosdem.org. 

You can choose if you want the spot for the entire conference, or simply for one day. Joint submissions (sharing a table) will be favoured in the process. 

Submit your application at stands.fosdem.org/submission! Deadline closes the 15th of November; accepted stands will be announced the 1st of December.

As you may know, the devroom [1] on Declarative and Minimalistic
Computing at FOSDEM 2023 is on the road.  Keep in touch about Guix Days…


About a Guix stand at FOSDEM:

>  1. do we run for a booth?

I sent the application.  Wait and see…

>  2. who is in?

For now, volunteers are:

 + Jonathan
 + Julien
 + Josselin
 + Simon

As you see, even if your name does not start with a ’J’, you can be
volunteer. ;-)


In all cases, see you at FOSDEM 2023!

Cheers,
simon
