The foss-north community day is a day of community activities taking place on March 29.
We have invited a number of projects to Gothenburg and provided them with venues. Now it is up to you to visit them and explore!
This day is free of charge, but we would be happy if you could RSVP this meetup for us to know how many your are. Some of the projects also require you register your participation. See the descriptions below for more information.
Notice that you do need to get one for the rest of the conference. Get your's here!
We've created an unofficial conference badge for foss-north with a ESP32 micro controller that have WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, some battery and blinkenlights.
The workshop will consist of three parts: * The Badge - Walk through of the hardware * FreeRTOS - A jump start in how to use a RTOS * Freestyle - Solder on random fun stuff on your badge and make it interact
Requirements: * Light programming skills * A laptop with any OS installed
There are 15 spots available on the workshop, and it's free - but registration is required.
We'll have a Bug Squashing Party in Gothenburg (Sweden) on Sunday March 29, organized as part of Foss-North's Community Day. The event will be held at Viktoriahuset, courtesy of the Inbyggd Frihet project, close to the old town.
Even if you're not a Debian Developer or Maintainer yet (but are otherwise interested in fixing bugs and helping Debian) please don't hesitate to attend; there will be enough people around to sponsor uploads and/or offer advice.
Please use the wiki for registration and further information about the venue.

The KDE community and technologies it uses, from translation to coding to design. We have a handful of topics, and we'll see what gets the most interest. Afterwards we'll sit down with a drink and talk KDE things in general. To participate, you'll need a laptop or mobile device.
The event will start at 16.00. We are still working on the program, and hopefully there will be a number of interesting speakers! We'll start the first meeting with a RISC-V overview! The venue and agenda is still to be settled. Please watch this space for updates!
If you have a RISC-V topic you want to present, don't hesitate to reach out! Got a board you'd like demo? Bring it!
