My Plans for FOSDEM 2023

FOSDEM 2023 is just around the corner, and I’m very excited. This will be my first in-person tech conference since before the pandemic. My last talk in FOSDEM was back in 2016, so I’m very much looking forward to the presentation I will give on Sunday.

There are many talks that I’m interested in listening to, and plenty of faces that I want to see in person again or for the first time. If you’re coming to FOSDEM and want to say hi, just ping me via (preferably) or (if you don’t have a Mastodon account)


I plan to see all presentations in the Image-based Linux and Secure Measured Boot devroom.

At some point, I will escape to the FOSS on Mobile Devices devroom because I’d like to meet with Lukas Hartman, the CEO of MNT, who will bring a prototype of the Reform Pocket. I also hope to talk about future extensions to the Reform Laptop.

At 1500 hours, I plan to visit the Go Devroom to check a talk about Five Steps to Make Your Go Code Faster & More Efficient.

At 1600 hours, I want to attend the SourceHut meetup. I’ve been occasionally using SourceHut CI for personal projects. I feel we are putting too many eggs in the GitHub basket, and I like the ethos and team behind SourceHut, so I’d like to get more involved.

Around 1800 hours, if I’m not too tired, I plan to check some talks in the CI/CD Devroom.

I hope to join some party afterward, but I have no idea if there are any plans.


I’m training for a race in March, so I plan to run on Sunday morning before arriving to FOSDEM. If anyone is interested in joining, that’d be pretty cool. My plan is to run for an hour or so.

Once I arrive, I’d like to visit some stands and hopefully buy some interesting books.

Before 1200 hours, I plan to be in the Distributions room.

At 12:30, I will give a presentation about How we build and maintain Kairos, the new project I’m involved with.

I plan to spend the rest of the time socializing before taking the train back to Ghent.
