For the second year in a row, Nix and NixOS will have a dedicated devroom at
FOSDEM [1]! FOSDEM is one of the largest open-source software development
conferences in Europe. It will take place next year on February 3rd and 4th in
Brussels, Belgium - and attendance is as always free of charge. Our devroom
will take place on Sunday morning (February 4th). On behalf of the devroom
managers, we're looking forward to seeing many of you there!

Call for Participation / Speakers

We are looking for speakers who'd like to present about the free / open source
software ecosystem surrounding Nix and NixOS. Do you have a cool use case for
Nix or NixOS? Have you built some interesting FLOSS tool that you'd like the
community to hear about? Please send us your submissions!

Talks can either be lightning talks (5 mins) or full-featured talks (20 mins +
5 mins for Q&A).

We welcome speakers of all backgrounds and all levels of experience with Nix
and NixOS. If you have something interesting to show to the world, it does not
matter whether you've been contributing to `nixpkgs` for years or whether
you're a new Nix user.

Speakers will need to be present in person at the event, remote presentations
are unfortunately not possible this year.

For reference, the devroom schedule from last year [2] is also available.
