KDE is at FOSS-North in 2019 with a community day and a booth (maybe a talk).

  • conference site Dates: april 7, 8, 9 2019 Places: Chalmers Conference Centre, Gothenburg, Sweden Open Street Map
  • Call for Participation on -community and -ev-membership


The booth is a lot like FOSDEM: one table, and we can hand out stickers, demo products, and sell T-shirts.

  • Adriaan has a laptop with a promo film
  • Adriaan has a mini-pc with touchscreen for touch demo
  • Adriaan has a rock64 with Plasma desktop, but no screen

There's a big-ish KDE logo banner. About 200 stickers, some postcards to give away.

Community Day

We have the opportunity to run a community day in-house with a friendly C++-oriented company in Gothenburg. (It's also on the opposite shore of the harbour, which means a neat ferry-ride).

In cooperation with GBG-CPP, meetup-link. Schedule overview.
