The Call for Proposals is now open for the OpenWrt Summit 2017. Submit your idea for a talk by August 31, 2017.
New in 2017, we have extended the conference to a second day and we welcome ideas for workshops, demonstrations, and developer sprints, to be held on day 2. You can also use day 2 for general networking discussions and deeper dives into the topics presented during day 1.
Who should come to the OpenWrt Summit?
The OpenWrt Summit will benefit anyone who wants to learn more about OpenWrt/LEDE software and is a great opportunity for the core community to get together face to face. In particular, the OpenWrt Summit will be perfect for:
OpenWrt/LEDE hackers (core team and contributors)
Software developers who maintain OpenWrt/LEDE packages or who want to create packages
Home users of OpenWrt/LEDE
Hardware and software engineers working with OpenWrt/LEDE, whether at work or for fun
Anyone interested in OpenWrt/LEDE, free and open source wireless networking, or embedded Linux
As a community centered conference, we invite users, developers, representatives of companies who use OpenWrt/LEDE and anyone interested in OpenWrt/LEDE to submit a speaking/session proposal for the OpenWrt Summit.
Suggested topics include:
Introductory topics (What is OpenWrt/LEDE? How to build? How to install? How to build packages?)
Hardware (Adding support for hardware you created or bought, contributing back to the core)
OpenWrt/LEDE derivatives (Best practices, staying close to core)
Unique and complex usage scenarios
Security (Containers, jails, etc)
Culture (Encouraging new contributors, documentation, advocacy)
Internet of Things/Internet of Everything
Future of OpenWrt/LEDE and related projects
We also welcome any other session topic related to OpenWrt/LEDE. Again, we encourage everyone interested to submit a session proposal for the OpenWrt Summit. Proposals should be submitted by Midnight UTC, August 31.
Sessions can come in many forms. Presentations are great but also consider proposing panel discussions, questions and answer or tutorials. If you have a good idea, then we encourage it you to submit it! If you are submitting a panel, please list all members of the panel. Now that we have extended the conference to a second day we also welcome ideas for workshops, demonstrations, and developer sprints, to be held on day 2.
