Meeting at FOSDEM, Bossa… where else?
Corporate budget planning is an interesting science that leads you to look at the future in a quite pragmatic way. First half of 2009: where is Maemo going to be? Where is the Maemo community willing to go and meet?
The first Maemo Summit ever was a success! I was supposed to blog about that, but once I recovered there was little to add to the many testimonials, reviews, pictures, videos. So what’s next? Not another Summit yet, since we want to keep an annual periodicity.
Considering how well the Desktop Search Hackfest went, we could go for more developer gatherings with a fixed set of goals. We could gather in the middle of nowhere just for that purpose or we could also take a bigger event as a reference and extend the stay a couple of days. We could also support existing developer calls from e.g. GNOME or freedesktop.org around issues and technologies related to the Maemo platform. If you have a goal in mind let us know.
About existing venues, FOSDEM and Bossa look like good candidates to pin something around. Guademy would be also an interesting event if it gets a third edition next year. I’m not counting yet GUADEC+aKademy because hopefully they will be organized in July-August and not before. Somewhere in North America would be cool as well, considering the amount of Maemo developers there. What else…?
