    👋️ Hey everyone. I know I mentioned this breifly a few months ago, but it's now official: root and I will be co-running a one-day XMPP track at FOSSY this year. We have five 50 minute slots to fill (or ten 25 minute slots or whatever, it's a bit flexible) so especially if you are this side of the ocean (but maybe even if you're not) we'd love to hear from people interested in presenting or otherwise participating

  2. L29Ah

    which one is "this"?

  3. singpolyma

    L29Ah: "this": running an XMPP track at FOSSY

  5. singpolyma

    oh sorry, you meant "this" which side of the ocean

  6. singpolyma

    I see that now

  7. singpolyma

    the americas side

  8. singpolyma

    conference is in portland

  9. pep.

    singpolyma, woo :)

  10. singpolyma

    There is some limited money available for travel sponsorships for presenters and participants, so if money is the thing holding you back do let me know

  11. moparisthebest

    singpolyma: you got a muc for it?

  12. singpolyma

    moparisthebest: does everything need a new muc? Heh. I'm happy to make one if needed, or just coordinate in existing places

  13. moparisthebest

    Hehe just wondered, do you know which day yet?

  14. singpolyma

    Not yet

  15. singpolyma

    I think there may still be a chance to expand it if we needed even, but I expect one day will be good for us at this point :)

  16. moparisthebest

    I'd like to go and talk but might struggle to fill 50 minutes, and probably won't attend the full 4 days :)

  17. moparisthebest

    Looking forward to meeting anyone who can attend too

  18. deimos

    I'm likely to attend a day or two.

  19. singpolyma

    We're free to divide up the 50 minutes however makes sense, so let me know what you think you can realistically fill :)

  20. singpolyma

    deimos: nice

  21. singpolyma

    Not all content has to be highly technical either. The conference is pretty broad.

  22. moparisthebest

    Was just about to ask about that, how technical should it be

  23. singpolyma

    There will also be tracks about community organizing and legal issues, so I definitely expect devs but not only devs :)

  24. deimos

    I'll do a session on writing an xmpp client in armv8a assembly. ;)

  25. singpolyma

    For the wiphone? ;)

  26. moparisthebest

    I can probably only talk about things interesting to devs, ask my wife
