  FOSDEM

FOSDEM 2007 finished one week ago. Last year I postponed posting about it and did not publish my slides at all (about Ruby-GNOME2), so this year I post while it's still hot.

First, I did not take a lot of photos this year (and they are quite bad...) but here they are.

FOSDEM 2007 was better than the previous one, like every year (I attend FOSDEM every year since at least 2003, I don't remember exactly but I have a 2003 T-Shirt). You always meet a lot of nice people, drink a lot of good beer, wake up early on Sunday to see a presentation which gets cancelled, see a lot of great conferences by the people who do the free software... For people who missed it, main conferences are available online, for the beer I cannot help you :)

This year Mandriva had a (hidden) room at FOSDEM. That was an opportunity to meet some contributors who I had never seen yet, and to have some interesting discussions, even if the WE is short, and while discussing for one hour you miss 3 interesting conferences.

mandriva room

On Sunday in the Mandriva room, we first got a presentation of EDOS testing framework, then guillaume gave a presentation of Youri and I gave a very short presentation (odp, pdf) about the (bad) state of policy definition and enforcement in Mandriva, to start a discussion on this topic. We then decided on how to proceed and now have to do it :)

I also participated in the largest keysigning party I had ever seen (108 registered people, about 75 present).

See you next year !
