X@FOSDEM 2010 Talks Planned So Far

There's just one month left until the Free and Open-source Software Developers' European Meeting (FOSDEM) takes place once again in Brussels, Belgium. Like in past years, there will be an X.Org development room where various talks about X will be held, but this year it has turned into a one-day affair. Even with having half the time as past years to talk about X, the schedule is not even full at this point.

As is shown on the X.Org FOSDEM 2010 Wiki, as of this afternoon there are only three talks -- by Daniel Stone, Jerome Glisse, and Mikhail Gusarov. Daniel will be talking about polishing X.Org with areas like video APIs, RandR, Composite, and Composite and how basically X11 can not suck so badly, thereby eliminating the need for an X12 or Wayland.

Jerome will once again give another technical X.Org talk, this time on the status of Radeon kernel mode-setting and the GPU kernel interfaces. The last talk planned at this time is on "X on e-Paper", in regards to the requirements for getting the X.Org Server to work well with ePaper technology and its unique needs.

There still is room for an additional four talks, which at this point remains unfilled. Luc Verhaegen has shared that Keith Packard and Eric Anholt (Intel) will indeed be coming once again, so that is likely another talk about Intel and X.Org, but details have yet to be published.

I will be at X@FOSDEM again and will be providing live coverage along with audio/video feeds via Phoronix. Please subscribe to Phoronix Premium, use our shopping links, or even make a donation to help support this work. You can also follow this coverage on Facebook, Twitter, and Identi.ca.
