Jabber @ FOSDEM 2006: call for presence

With so much happening in the Jabber space, people want to know more. And what better place than FOSDEM. In the weekend of 25 and 26 February 2006 its 6th edition will take place in Brussels, and again I've made sure we have presence there. Like last year, I've arranged for a booth and a developers' room.

And while we can use the booth for answering questions, the developers' room is where we can seriously explain what we are doing and how. Last year proved there is a lot of interest and the presentations were well-attended and well-received. This year we have a room for both afternoons and I would like to have more good stuff.

I invite everyone to submit a proposal for an event in the FOSDEM Jabber developers' room. This can be:

  • A presentation about some aspect of the Jabber protocol suite.

  • A presentation about a certain use of Jabber in a piece of software. E.g. integration with the web, calendering, the desktop or non-IM applications.

  • A tutorial.

  • A coding sprint.

Bottom line is, if you have a good idea for filling a slot, let me know before 16 January.

Of course I would like to know who is coming, even if you are just going to visit. I also have some ideas about selling t-shirts, much like the one I made for BarCamp Amsterdam. It would be nice to have an idea of the interest for this. So, drop me a line.
