FOSSY- Portland

This year the software freedom conservancy is going to host the Free and Open Source Software Yearly conference (July 13-16th 2023). They are modeling a lot of it on FOSDEM. I am going to apply for a dev room for the community. So a couple of questions:

  1. Anyone available/ willing to help?
  2. what should we name the DevRoom?
  3. Would you be able to speak at the event?

If you have had experience submitting a Dev Room request in the past, please let me know.

@ramereth this might be a good chance for your students to attend/speak at an OSS event.

I am moving to the Portland area 1st week of June. I’m not a SW expert but happy to represent our brand if help is needed (and if the event is after my move date, of course :slight_smile: )


the event is July 13-16th 2023 (forgot to add that to the original post). So it looks like you will be in Portland… and we would love to have you…

We got accepted, so we will have at least a one day track. I will post a more detailed post in a little bit, but I wanted share the news. So if you:

  • want to help organize
  • want to speak
  • have a topic that you would like to see (even if you can’t go)
  • a speaker that you would like to see

Please post here as we start planning.


Well done Aaron, that’s awesome. :partying_face:

Happy to help review sessions, I’ll also be submitting a few.

If you need more help, please reach out.


invite should be in your email.
