FOSSMeet ‘24 is the seventeenth edition of NIT Calicut’s Free and Open Source Software event aimed at creating awareness and encouraging the use of free and open source software. The event includes a wide array of workshops, talks, hackathons, tech competitions, discussions and a lot more.

Our call for proposals is open, inviting a broad spectrum of content formats: lectures, demos, tutorials, workshops, and discussions. We have slots for both experienced professionals and bright student minds.

But this isn’t your run-of-the-mill event; it’s where innovation intersects with inspiration. We’re not just looking for speakers; we’re on the hunt for visionaries. If you’ve got a fresh take on open source or a unique viewpoint, we want to hear your story.

While we applaud your creative flair, let’s ensure it orbits within the open-source universe. Proposals should revolve around open-source software, development, or related fields. While we value diversity, your topic should connect with the audience. Aim for the sweet spot—engaging yet comprehensible, unique but not excessively obscure. And here’s the deal: We won’t be counting upvotes in our selection process.

Join us at FOSSMeet’24, where innovation, inspiration, and open-source excellence converge. We eagerly await your proposals!

Non-Code Contributions to Open Source

Submitted Feb 14, 2024

When thinking about open source contributions, most people think about contributing code. This was true in the early days when open source was a way for people to share the cool thing they built.

Now, as open source becomes the default way to build software, contributions required to create, manage, and sustain projects go beyond code.

From this talk, you will learn how to make impactful contributions to open source that does not involve contributing code.
