Full Agenda

14:30 – Opening of the event

14:35-15:20 – GNOME, A Free Operating System for everyone
    By Mathieu Bridon

    This talk will introduce the GNOME project, its goals and vision.

    After that, we’ll show off the features of GNOME 3.6, and some of
    the plans for the next versions.

    Finally, we’ll show how everybody can join, depending on their
    skills and aspirations.

15:25-16:10 – Enlarge your GNOME
    By Mart Van de Ven

    This talk will showcase the extensibility and customizability of
    GNOME 3, to debunk the myth that GNOME developers hate Freedom.

16:15-17:55 – Unconference
    By everybody

    As Wikipedia puts it eloquently:
        “An unconference is a participant-driven meeting.”

    Come and pitch your own topic. It could be anything, as long as it
    is related to GNOME. It could be a quick talk, a debate, a hackfest,
    a user-helping session, etc.

    If there’s something GNOME-related you’d want to share with others,
    this is the right place and time.

18:00 – Wrap-up, closing of the event
