X.Org Development Room @ FOSDEM 2010

Luc Verhaegen, the longtime X.Org developer who was previously employed by Novell to work on their X11 stack and the RadeonHD driver and continues to hack on his VIA driver, has announced that at FOSDEM 2010 there will be an X.Org development room. Luc has been organizing X@FOSDEM annually for the past five years.

X@FOSDEM 2010 though will not be the usual two-day event filled with X talks, but sadly, it has turned into a one-day affair. Over concerns of not having enough talks to fill the two days this year and Luc becoming interested in the CoreBoot project since being laid off at Novell, he has decided to host the X.Org room as the CoreBoot development room on Saturday.

X@FOSDEM 2010 will just be on Sunday, the 7th of February, in Brussels, Belgium. A one day X conference will allow for seven talks that span the course of the day, but on the previous night there may be the usual X.Org dinner at a local restaurant. Available now is the X.Org FOSDEM 2010 Wiki along with Luc's announcement.

Phoronix will be providing live coverage from the event both written and video recordings. We have recorded X@FOSDEM for the past two years and then have hosted them at RadeonHD.org and Phoronix.com. We will be doing it again for 2010, but this time with HD video recordings and hopefully no audio problems like last year. That Saturday we might end up providing CoreBoot recordings and notes too, if there are no other talks going on of greater interest.

It's a bit sad though that X@FOSDEM is now a one-day event, especially considering there is only one other X conference per year (XDS) compared to in year's past when there was the two-day X@FOSDEM, the X Developers' Conference, and then the X Developers' Summit.
