|| ||FOSS.IN/2007: First List|
|| ||Sat, 27 Oct 2007 13:14:29 +0530 (IST)|
This is the first list of talks. There are still plenty of things that
will change over the next week. Some talks/speakers will be added, some
removed, and none of the keynotes or panel discussions or BoFs are in this
But this should do two things:
1. Give you a fairly good idea what talks we are going to have
2. Give you a fairly good idea of who is speaking
This year, I simply do not have the energy to make a separate post about
all the famous names who are coming to FoSS.IN, but let me wave to Rusty
Russel, Mitchell Baker, James Morris, Jim Grisanzio, Thomas Gleixner,
Harald Welte, Sam Hocevar, Danese Cooper, Andrew
Cooper Cowie, Josh Berkus, Till
Adam, Ulrich Drepper and many others who are coming this year - welcome
(back) to FOSS.IN, guys! :)
As usual, our two keynote speakers will be revealed only just before the
And there are a few well known names that we are waiting to receive
confirmation from, or whose talks we are working on.
And you will also find a lot of surprising names simply *attending* the
event this year - because they all think that FOSS.IN is an event worth
flying round the world for.
This has been a REALLY hard process for Team FOSS.IN - never before have
we fought so hard and so long to get FOSS.IN to be what we want it to be.
But the taste of the pudding is in the eating, and at the end of the 5
days of the event, we will know whether we succeeded in triggering off a
wave of FOSS contribution from India.
Early next week we announce our sponsors, and delegate registration starts
on Tuesday as well. Call for volunteers will go our a day later.
