Open Media DevRoom at FOSDEM 2018 - Call For Participation

Hi all,

The Open Media devroom will again be organised at FOSDEM 2018, and we are looking for propositions of talks and panels. FOSDEM is one of the largest (5,000+ hackers!) gatherings of Free and Open Source Software contributors in the world and happens each February in Brussels (Belgium, Europe).

This is a prime opportunity to meet other Kaltura community members, and hear talks about the future of open source media. So if you can join, drop us a line so we can meet!

This year, the Open Media devroom will take place on:
Saturday, February 3rd, 2018
