January 19th, 2010 by

It is that time of the year again!

FOSDEM, the Free and Open Source Software Developers' European Meeting

FOSDEM will take place at the first weekend in February (6th/7th) in Brussels and we’re going to attend. There is a buttload of tracks, devrooms and lightning talks to visit. Including, but not limited to: Security, Scalability, Monitoring, Distributions, KDE, GNOME, Ruby on Rails, X.org, LiMux, csync, GeeXboX and so on and so on. You should check the Schedule. Of course also the famous exhibition exhaust pipe hallway will be back once more with project booths ranging from CAcert to Zarafa Community.

Our project will attend mostly in the individual project’s devrooms and together with CentOS, Debian, Fedora and Mandriva in the distribution mini-conference that will happen. Of  course we also have a booth to show off and hand out promo DVD”s of the greatest distribution on this planet. We hope you seize this opportunity to meet, learn from, get inspired by and shape the community that will gather at the the best Free Software and Open Source event in Europe!

FOSDEM openSUSE.org Devroom Recordings

February 17th, 2009 by

This year Juergen and me (tom) went to FOSDEM to do the video recordings of the talks in the openSUSE developer room. Last year we had some problems with the sound quality, so this year we brought some more equipment, amongst others 2 head mics for the speakers, one mic for the audience, an 8 channel mixer and speakers for the audience.

I think the result is quite good, both the sound experience in the room and on the recordings. I am sorry for the delay of the recordings, but amongst other distractions my system harddisk decided to die during the video renderings. The recently discovered tool of choice for doing the post-processing is kdenlive which in version 0.7.2 is the best video tool I’ve used on linux.
