  • As we only have 1,5 days I would start earlier. It's fun, trust me. --stefan (before we start at 9h)
  • I would prefer less time spent on talks but on workshops/interest groups --stefan
    • I also think (hands on) workshops would be better than talks --daniel
  • About Buzzfix and hardware moding workshop - 2 hours might be tight depending on the amount of devices --stefan

Proposed talks

  • "State of the art" talk ("what happened and where we are" - mickeyl, Ainulindale ?)
  • SHR vs. Paroli; SHR + Paroli
  • Target Hardware for FSO and SHR
  • FSOd & frameworkd2
  • Ophonekitd's future
    • Vala rewrite: what it brings (Modularity, testability, configurability, ...)
    • DBus GUI control protocols
  • Joint FSO/SHR testing proposal
    • Using libgmock as a base framework to mock frameworkd or ophonekitd
    • Shared sequence diagrams
  • Ologicd
    • Introduction (use cases, solutions survey...)
    • Current state
    • Flora-2 introduction and demos
    • Expected Logic frameworks

Proposed workshops

  • Hardware workshops
    • Buzzfix workshop
    • Hardware mods (for instance, DocScrutinizer's USB Y-cable)
  • Merge SHR overlay in OE and work out a good workflow for a stable distro and work with OE
  • PIM, the urgent action item
  • Map data, routing, navit, map widget, location SMS (olocationd), GSM location
  • ...


  • Do people prefer hotel rooms or is sleeping on the floor in a room together is also fine?
  • How do we like to handle food? Going out or prepare on our own?
  • Will there be a live stream of the talks for the people who can't come?
    • I think this is very unlikely. It's hard work and we hope to have less talks and more hand-on workshops anyway. (Stefan)
