OpenEmbedded booth


You are going to FOSDEM and can spend some time at the OpenEmbedded stand to explain interested individuals the virtues of OpenEmbedded? Add your name and on which day you'll be available.

  • Paul Eggleton (Saturday, Sunday)


A bunch of tasks need to be carried out to make our attendance a pleasant experience. Each task needs a volunteer who is willing to help.

Table cloth

Can Philip bring table cloths from last year - Yes Will the show box make it? There is one in there.

Bringing an TFT LCD

Displaying a presentation during the time of the conference makes our stand visually more attractive. We have a simple OpenDocument presentation in our SCM that can be used for this. However we need a display as well. If you come by car and can transport a display that'd be great.

Volunteer: ?


A nice poster with updated sponsor was used for 2011's LinuxTag in Berlin. This poster needs to be brought to FOSDEM. Where is it right now and can it be taken to Brussels?

Volunteer: ?


Years ago we printed a bunch (2500) of flyers. We still have a bunch of them left (exact number unknown; will update this as soon as I know). As the text is already a few years old it makes sense to update the actual document (it is in openembedded/contrib/marketing/oe-flyer.pdf) and print new ones.

Volunteer: ?

Device Tags

People standing in front of our booth often want to know what kind of device it is that blinks so funnily. ;) We could make things easier by being able to print small tags providing some information about board manufacturer, CPU, RAM and what its relation to OpenEmbedded is.

Volunteer: ?


Paul Eggleton - either FRI2 or Intel NUC

Flyers and posters

You can bring and/or print OpenEmbedded flyers and posters? Add your name and what you'll bring. Stickers! - Philip

Power extensions, adapters and other stand material

Bringing devices is cool but we need a way to bring power to them too. Additionally people might need power sockets for different systems than the european one. List your name and what stuff you can bring.

Although FOSDEM itself takes place at the ULB campus, most folks prefer to stay nearer the city centre.

The Astrid has traditionally been the default choice for OE developers, though there are many other hotels in the area. If you are staying in a hotel other than the Astrid, feel free to add it to this section for the benefit of others. Recently, most of us stay at the Saint Nicolas due to the free breakfast and wifi.
