FOSS.in and the Omelette post

with one comment

FOSS.in is an annual open source event that happens in Bangalore. I’ve not attended the event anytime,but I go through the presentations of the speakers. There were several presentations on many topics like OpenMoko ,OpenSolaris,etc last year which were quite informative.

The event will happen Nov 25-29 this year. The CFP announcement was done quite some back  . Yesterday I received an email on what has  changed and whats the focus. This year’s focus would be ‘Talk is cheap.Show me the Code‘.The bar has been raised now and its more of a ‘developer only’ event .The organizers want to keep the noise low and concentrate on what matters most..RESULTS… Way to go!!

Some thoughts: As the post says, much of it sounds idealistic… I really don’t know if coding workouts could produce ‘results’ as the post suggests.

I may be quite wrong but in my opinion ,summits/conferences are for ideas and not for writing code..not many would come to a   room and start coding…I may not be able to attend the meeting (I don’t want to stand on the way of  smart people).

I wish good luck for FOSS.in to be a grand success.

Here is the original Omelette post: http://foss.in/2008/10/fossin2008-the-omelette-post/

  1. The Omelette looks like a “half-boiled” one. Will wait until someone tastes it.
