Hello everyone,

We are happy to announce that the call for participation in the FOSDEM 2023
devroom for Public Code and Digital Public Goods has opened.

It's a devroom dedicated to everyone developing public code - open source
code that implements public policy, used for the public good, and by public
organizations like governments, public administrations and state

The devroom will take place on Sunday 5th February 2023 in Brussels.

We are looking for contributions that would fit within the main theme of
the devroom. Below are some questions that could inspire your proposal:

* have you tried to replicate and/or co-develop with another public
organization? what did you learn along the way?
* do you have any procurement and/or governance models (or hacks!) that
helped you use, reuse and co-develop public code or digital public goods?
* are you working on and/or using some awesome public code or digital
public good that has the potential for reuse, and the world needs to hear

If you have another idea for a talk that you think would fit, please don't
hesitate to let us know! We hope that this will be an opportunity for
everyone to meet and exchange ideas about public code and digital public
goods around the world.

We welcome submissions from projects that have never been to FOSDEM before,
as well as from 'old timers'.
