FOSDEM 2018: The state of Mir

I’ll be at FOSDEM this weekend (3 & 4 February 2018) presenting a review of the progress of, and plans for the Mir project:

After Canonical dropped support for Unity8 priorities for the Mir project changed. While Canonical’s professed interest is in IoT there is potential for Mir to be used by others.

This meeting starts with a presentation of the work done to support such projects and seeks help in setting priorities for future efforts.
