Ubuntu Community stand at FOSDEM 2022

Hi all!

FOSDEM 2022 (Fee and Open Source Developers European Meeting was just announced a few days, a few days ago, as a for sure online conference, with the possibility of it to eventually become hybrid (but it’s yet to be confirmed).

This conference which is no longer just a developers conference but a general community conference is the biggest Free Software/Open Source Software conference in Europe (by far), with past IRL events have almost 10 000 participants.

While the Ubuntu Community Members have been present, and more than frequently event within the conference organization volunteers and even managing rooms like the containers room, and met for an Ubuntu community dinner, the Ubuntu Community hasn’t had a booth at FOSDEM at least for a few years, and I want to change that!

I propose that we organize ourselves and request FOSDEM for a stand/booth, for our community, with participation from Canonical, all the flavours, and even including the UBports Community (since they actually do Ubuntu Touch).

What do you all thing, and are you willing to help?

No matter what format it is, whether completely virtual or hybrid, I completely and enthusiastically support a booth, and will help staff it, promote it, and get the community what it needs to make it a success, whether it’s in person or online! Thank you so much for posting about this and getting us thinking about planning!

Is it okay if I Tweet a link to this post from the official account?

Absolutely ok!

If any of you knows more about the process of getting a booth at FOSDEM please come forward, as soon as we have information the better.
