The conference tagline is ‘Remembering how we started’. We have done so much in the last few years! We establish strong and healthy communities, and we are building great tools and de facto standards using the most up-to-date technology. For newbies, the jargon we use can be scary. But we need to keep all communities and projects open to newbies to guarantee long-term viability and to keep on the cutting-edge of technology. Let’s add another F in FOSS4G meaning Free and Friendly for first timers: FFOSS4G!
Under this slogan, we invite individuals (and tribes) to share their stories and prepare activities for FOSS4G newbies. We also would like to have stories about how companies and local administrations started to contribute to FOSS4G.
P.S. Don’t forget your first pull request!
