FrOSCon 2012 Newsletter #1


The 1st edition of the FrOSCon 2012 newsletter.

G'morrow, FrOSCon friends,

for the seventh time, the FrOSCon organisational crew invites you to the Free and Open Source Software Conference, taking place on 25th and 26th of August at Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg. We are proud to be able to happily announce another year of exciting talks, projects and workshops while, of course, keeping an eye on providing you with a lot of fun during the weekend as well.

Despite of being a bit late this year, preparations for the conference are running at full power. Getting together on many occasions, including a coming up weekend at the Linuxhotel in Essen [1], a heavily grown team of well-known and newly motivated volunteers is working hard to create everything that makes out a fruitful conference.

As we put high efforts in all things organisational, as a matter of fact the success of the conference depends highly on you when it comes to presentations of projects, talks and workshops. Thus, let's introduce you to the upcoming calls for papers and projects [2]!

This year, especially the kids track (also referred to as FrogLabs) is undergoing a heavy re-design, now allowing young minds to present their projects and ideas to other "hackers" their age [3].

FrOSCon e.V., being a non-profit organisation, depends on your donations. Should you or your company be able to support us, maybe by means of opting for a sponsoring package, that would be highly welcomed.

You are invited to direct all questions and offers regarding this to

We are looking forward to meeting everyone who visited us throughout the last years and of course also many new visitors!

Nik, for the whole of the FrOSCon organisational crew
