Project and developer rooms

FrOSCon offers open source projects, companies and developers the opportunity to present themselves at the conference.  

Similar to the previous editions of the conference, we offer several smaller rooms for open source projects. You can use these rooms to organize specialized talks for your users, workshops but also for (internal) developer meetings.

Arch Linux - Room C117

Complementing the Arch project booth we plan an Arch DevRoom where selected presentations will give an overview of current trends and projects in the Arch space. Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Internet of Things,
  • Embedded Systems,
  • Packet mangement,
  • Ports to Non-Intel architectures,
  • Arch CI / Q/A,
  • Arch @ Cloud,
  • The state of the Wiki,
  • AUR.

EGroupware - Room C130


EGroupware is a web groupware with a history of almost 20 years. In the meantime, community development has evolved into a business-driven development supported by a small developer community. We want to meet and support this small developer community at the FrOSCon.

LoRaWAN Community Summit - Room C219

privacyIDEA - Room C117


privacyIDEA is a modular authentication server that can be used to enhance the security of your existing applications like local login, VPN, remote access, SSH connections, access to web sites or web portals with two factor authentication. Originally it was used for OTP (One Time Password) authentication devices – being an OTP server. But other “devices” like challenge response, U2F, Yubikeys, Push Tokens, SSH keys and x509 certificates are also available. It runs on Linux and is completely Open Source, licensed under the AGPLv3.

privacyIDEA tries to be open in many ways. We try to provide best transparency: We host our code on github, so that you can monitor the development. The issue tracker at github is used, so that you can see, which topic is hot, what is coming up in the future and actually add your own requests! You are welcome to fork and issue pull requests and we are happy to accept those. You becoming a part of this project.

New features are planned in the github wiki. We are using to run our tests. privacyIDEA is not ruled by a single company alone. Thus when using privacyIDEA or getting involved you are not at the mercy of one single, revenue driven decision maker.
