FOSSY videos are out!
September 14, 2023
The recordings from FOSSY are now up! You can check them out on the Internet Archive. We have over 100 talks from 19 tracks, from speakers coming from over 12 countries. It was such an incredible first year conference and we're so happy to share the presentations with you. We'll be highlighting specific talks over the comings days, so be on the lookout on our social media.
During the four days of the conference, there were a wide variety of talks from speakers with a range of experience and backgrounds, and amazing community focused discussions. Featuring wide ranging topics such as a panel discussion about software coops, what is life like without a smartphone (where the picture on the right is from), and thinking about FOSS from a systems theory perspective. Our track organizers brought together communities from all over, and led by example choosing speakers, topics and setting up panels for important conversations. There is definitely a talk that will interest you, whether you are interested in nonprofit board structure, an introduction to Reproducible Builds or maybe you are looking to have more nature adventures with free software.
It was a privilege and honor to make space for the community to (safely!) come together and have the critical and community building discussions in real time. Our modest expectations for the conference were blown away by the passion, expertise and graciousness of the speakers and community. And while we cannot replicate the energy of the hallway track, there's plenty of video content to get your fill on until next year! If you want to get the hallway track experience, you can join us on xmpp:firstname.lastname@example.org?join which is also bridged to the IRC channel #conservancy on libera.chat
