We have been granted a booth a FrOSCon (Free and Open Source Software Conference). This page is meant to help organize the event.

Booth staff

For staffing the booth for the two days, we're looking for volunteers. You do not need to be a collectd developer in order to help out. Rather, some interest in the project and openness towards visitors is sufficient. In particular, you do not need to be able to answer all questions — Florian and Sebastian will be there mostly all of the time; when in doubt, redirect questions to them ;-) Anyone who volunteers before August 14, will get a free (exhibitor) ticket to the conference.

If you would like to help out, please add yourself to the following list:

Who? When? Contact Information Comments
Sebastian "tokkee" Harl Fr, 20 – Su, 22 User:Tokkee I'll also organize the Debian booth and give a talk on Sunday, 17:45
Florian "octo" Forster Fr, 20 – Su, 22 User:Octo

Booth details

We'll have a bistro table and some space for posters. The booth will be in between the Debian and GRML booths and close to the Sidux and MirOS booths.

Decoration (some ideas; please feel free to add more and/or discuss on the mailing-list):

  • demo (notebook running some web frontends)
  • some posters (to be designed)
  • some merchandising material would be nice (see below)
  • flyers
  •  ???

Merchandise material

tokkee will check with, e.g., kernel concepts whether collectd mugs are doable until FrOSCon. Also, stickers would be nice.


If you're going to help at the booth, it might be a good idea to look at the Debian Events Howto. Some content might be Debian specific but most of it applies to other projects/events as well.
