Tiki Fest Fosdem 2020


FOSDEM is a free event that offers open source communities a place to meet, share ideas and collaborate.

It is renowned for being highly developer-oriented and brings together 5000+ geeks from all over the world.»
Jyhem has attended for 7 years in a row and confirms that it's huge, it's chaotic, it's fun, and well worth attending.

Most of everything is in English.

In Brussels:
FOSDEM 1 (from 9:30 to 19:00) & 2 February (from 9:00 to 18:00) 2020
TikiFest before or after? (to be confirmed)


FOSDEM will take place at the ULB Solbosch Campus, Brussels, Belgium, Europe, Earth.

Hopefully, we find a place for a TikiHouse as usual.

Why would we want to be there?

It's fun, there are plenty of talks about Libre/Open-Source topics, there are a lot of interesting people to meet who are active or interested in Libre/Open-Source topics, it's an occasion of getting the word out about Tiki and adopt good ideas from other projects ;-)
Plus, we could take advantage of being together for renting a TikiHouse and having a TikiFest.

What are our options

  • We should think of talks which showcase the power of Tiki and submit them for the « Collaboration Devroom » or « Collaborative Applications Devroom ». That gets Tiki and the speaker visbility during Fosdem and also forever afyer (the talk slides and video stay online on Fosdem's site).

  • We should decide if we want to apply for a stand. The deadline for stand proposals is november 1st. No rush. Yet. As stands must have 2 people on them at all times and we want to also enjoy Fosdem, I will not send an application for a stand if we don't have 6 people or more willing to participate.
    We have 3 options
    1. We have no stand, like last year.
    2. We apply for a « wikis and CMSes » stand with other projects like we did in 2018, 2017, 2016. These other projects might be DokuWiki, CMSMS, Foswiki, wikisuite, others? (XWiki will have their own separate stand with cryptpad).
    3. We apply for a wikisuite stand with other projects Tiki works with such as openfire, Padé, syncthing, ClearOS, etc.

We have time for discussing our options yet.

Who does what

Jyhem volunteers for keeping in touch with other projects and following up on any submissions we may want to do about a stand or anything at Fosdem. I did it before and I know that's enough occupation for me.
