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!

Preventing Proliferation of Open Standards

Submitted Feb 14, 2024

As this famous XKCD comic reminds us frequently, standards tend to proliferate.

It usually goes like this:

  1. A standard emerges to unify different projects/their standards.
  2. The unified standard has limitations the implementors want to overcome.
  3. Implementations diverge from the standard because of these limitations.
  4. Each implementation now has its own standard.
  5. A new standard emerges to unify these different standards.

And repeat.

In this talk, we will explore how this happens in practice and look at ways in which this can be mitigated with the example of the Kubernetes Ingress and Gateway APIs.
