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)
  • Philip Balister (Saturday)
  • Fathi Boudra (Sunday morning)
  • Florian Boor (Saturday, Sunday but not all the time)


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.

Event box

  • Florian brings the contents split into suitcase and TFT box

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: ?


Flyers and posters

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

I have more OpenEmbedded stickers, Philip (Crofton)

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.

  • Presentation file for use on the display - Paul
  • Machine to connect for displaying the presentation (hopefully with the ability to show off Toaster) - Paul

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 wifi.
