Aside from the X.Org meetings at FOSDEM
, another interesting development track that takes place at the annual Free and Open-Source Developers' European Meeting is about open-source/Linux gaming.
The open-source game development room is an annual staple to the FOSDEM conference in Brussels, Belgium. This game development room continues to be organized by Nils Kneuper (a.k.a "Ivanovic"), a Phoronix reader and contributor to the Phoronix Forums
and IRC (#phoronix
). For FOSDEM 2013, the talks in the gaming room will be:
- Pandora - a mobile Linux computer including gaming controls
- Continuous Integration and Testing in Games
- Community based translations of games
- The Gluon Project Update
- An introduction to the Wesnoth animation engine
- Explaining the Quake 3 virtual machine
- Open source gaming discussions
More track details can be found here
for the open-source gaming sessions.
FOSDEM 2013 is taking place on 2 and 3 February. I'll be back out in Belgium for the event, which is among my favorite Linux/open-source events in the world. Coverage will take place on Phoronix as well as via my personal Twitter account
