[edit] OpenEmbedded booth

[edit] Manning

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.

  • Robert Schuster (Saturday, Sunday until ~4pm)
  • Alex Lennon (Saturday, Sunday)
  • Henning Heinold (Saturday, Sunday)
  • Ulf Samuelsson (Saturday, Sunday)
  • Paul Eggleton (Saturday, Sunday)
  • Marco Cavallini (Saturday)
  • Radoslav Kolev (Sunday afternoon) - I'll be leaving Brussels on Monday, so I can stay until later to help with cleaning up tables, etc.
  • Florian Boor (Saturday, Sunday)
  • Philip Balister (Saturday, Sunday (as needed))

[edit] Tasks

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.

[edit] Table cloth

We only have a single table cloth (it washed but has a negligible stain from a quick soldering action that happened last year). We definitely need a 2nd one to also cover our second table. The FOSDEM tables are pretty huge (2.5m length), so chose a reasonably sized cloth. Additionally it would be super cool to have the OpenEmbedded logo printed on it. The idea would be to show the logo on the front side of our tables. For that the 'OE' sign should not be taller than say 50cm (The tables are approximately 70cm high.).

Volunteer: Philip Balister plans to bring 2 table cloths carrying the OE logo.

[edit] 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. Getting a screen is not so complicated. Robert Schuster could send one to you by mail.

Volunteer: Florian Boor, a display is part of an event box he brings

[edit] Poster

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: Henning Heinold (brings it from Berlin)

[edit] Flyers

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: Henning and Florian bring some

[edit] 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:

Alex Lennon - please send details of any tags needed to me, (ajlennon at dynamicdevices.co.uk) in reasonable time.

[edit] Devices

Robert Schuster - Pandaboard - Hopefully booting Angstrom with some desktop and Java foo.

Alex Lennon - Gem (i.MX28 based telematics board) - Booting OpenEmbedded with an end-user demo running (hopefully)

Ulf Samuelsson - Atmel AT91SAM9Gx5 Kit with 5 CPU Modules (G15,G25,G35,X25,X35)

                Will boot the OpenEmbedded from www.linux4sam.org
                A raffle for the kit will be held in the Embedded DevRoom,
                and you have to visit the OpenEmbedded stand to leave your business card.

[edit] Flyers and posters

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

[edit] 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.

  • Robert Schuster:
    • 3-socket power extension (EU)
    • tape
    • WiFi-Router in client mode to provide Internet access for Ethernet-based devices
    • 2 1m-Ethernet cables

[edit] General attendance

Attending FOSDEM 2012? Add your name to this page so that other developers can look out for you!

  • Robert Schuster (rschus/thebohemian)
  • Henning Heinold (woglinde)
  • Paul Eggleton (bluelightning)
  • Marco Cavallini (mckoan)


[edit] Hotels

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.

Scandic Grand Place.

 Close to beer event (300 m) and Central Station.
