We applied to participate in FOSDEM 2021, and we were accepted :)!
Hello team behind Pharo,
Your submission for a stand at FOSDEM 2021 has been accepted.
We welcome you to FOSDEM 2021, our first fully digital edition.
As a reminder, this is what you can expect this year.
- A spot on our exhibition website (stands.fosdem.org).
- A Matrix chatroom.
- A place to store video's.
The exhibition website is a static site generated by hugo (gohugo.io). We have set the theme and the structure, and you can add as many pages as you want. The code for the website currently lives at https://github.com/FOSDEM/stands-website . Documentation will be added shortly (and will be communicated via the list).
To get started with adding content to the website, follow these steps:
1. Create two git repositories (public), one for your content and one for your static files. Provide us with both links and make sure we can pull anonymously.
2. Add pages in any format Hugo accepts. Note that you cannot add more levels (if you want a deeper structure, ask us).
3. Once every hour a script will rebuild the website.
4. You can add links to your own website(s) as well, but we ask that you keep stand-related things on our stands website.
We'll provide more information on where to upload the video's later this month. It is up to you if you wish to create them, but we think it will add value to your stand.
More details on the chatroom will also be made available in the coming week.
This week, we'll publish the list of accepted stands on our website, and add the primary and secondary contact to [hidden email] for further communication. By the beginning of next week, the exhibition website will be put online (behind authentication as it is not public yet). As soon as the infrastructure is in place, the video site and the Matrix chatroom will be configured.
We'll send further updates to the standholders mailing list. Please bear with us, this is new for us as well ;-)
We hope to see you at FOSDEM!
The FOSDEM Stands Team
We have been accepted to have a virtual stand in FOSDEM 2021.
The idea is to start gathering information to show in the stand about Pharo.
Besides the pharo graphical image related content, we would like to offer also success stories, and also videos related to your tools / fwks / business etc, from the point of view of how pharo was a good choice, how it was helpful. Like this we can gather stories that promote your things and pharo at the same time.
Also I would like to ask to all those persons doing research on pharo to have some kind of video equivalent to a poster presentation, remarking the interest of using pharo.
And to the people that works on pharo core, if you have videos presenting features or assets such as how to build tests, how pharo is integrated with sisop, how it is rendered, how it is interpreted, jited, etc. We could have a track on youtube or similar presenting many features :).
Of course if you want to participate actively on the organization of the stand you are more than welcome. Please send me a private message and we may build some communication group to share ideas and organize.
Thanks a lot for your attention :)
Thanks for this invitation Santiago. It's comes pretty timely as I as preparing a web portfolio of my Pharo projects for an upcoming deadline. I will contact you by direct message with more details.

As a backup, you could edit videos from ESUG 2019 https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJ5nSnWzQXi8DPNpy1jCkjE4yE0WUtDP2
- "Show us your project" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RNQKwcYb6Jc&list=PLJ5nSnWzQXi8DPNpy1jCkjE4yE0WUtDP2&index=50- "Object Centric Debugging" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uDYJIm54yE4&list=PLJ5nSnWzQXi8DPNpy1jCkjE4yE0WUtDP2&index=18
Great idea! I am going to see if we can also share some of the talks from last esug as well! Thanks a lot Ben
Hello, here i bring some more information from the organization:
One of the most important points to my understanding, is that we are expected to use Matrix chat system. (what is kind of annoying since pharo chats are on discord).
Does any body knows an existing and working way to bridge this two systems? It could be nice to let the people to get in touch with pharo chat directly.
Down the informing email from fosdem organization:
Congratulations on your stand at FOSDEM 2021. Now the "real" work starts ;-)
We realise we left you very little time to prepare, and we apologise for it; FOSDEM 2021 is a new experience and our tried-and-tested recipes don't work as well in the virtual world.
Nevertheless, to recap what we already stated, this is certainly what you will get from us:
I'll explain in reverse order.
You'll get a chatroom at chat.fosdem.org (with a lot of help from the amazing Matrix people) for your stand, to manage as you wish. We propose that you create some kind of schedule (can be public, can be private) of when an interesting person will be at your stand, so interested visitors can have a chat.
We'll make sure your primary stands page links to the chatroom.
In a way that still has to be developed (or at least worked out), you'll be able to upload (or rsync/sftp) some prerecorded video's (showcases, interviews, demo's, etc.) to a folder under video.fosdem.org.
We'll also make sure that there is a link from the stands page.
There will be a website called stands.fosdem.org which will list under /stands/ all stands at FOSDEM 2021; organised per theme. Each "stand" has a primary (index) page with some generated content. All other pages are up to you: you can put everything on the primary page, create subpages or do something else. The website is generated with Hugo, and every stand is a directory (with _index.md) under content/stands. Your pages are thus content pages (HTML and MD), which means you don't have to care about how it looks (we'll put it in the FOSDEM theme) or how it exactly is configured; we deal with all that.
You can add static content (images, etc.) to be used on your pages.
We'll fetch all your content once per hour (when the site is up - sometime next week) with git. Therefore, in the acceptance mail, we asked you to provide us with two git repositories; one for the content files (you don't have to provide the rest of the Hugo scaffolding) and one for the static files. Make sure we can pull without authentication.
As soon as the site is up, well provide you with the link so you
can check how everything will look. You can also clone our git
repo and check for yourself (see the Hugo documentation for more
details on how - the command is hugo serve).
More information is on https://github.com/FOSDEM/stands-website/blob/master/README.md
If you have any feedback, ideas for improvements or just general comments, please do not hesitate to drop us an email; we'll try to integrate it. We know it is somewhat short notice, but we had to rewire our entire FOSDEM machine, and such things take some time and a lot of work. We hope this will however recreate some of the buzz of the traditional event; and we hope very much to see you all in physical form at the ULB campus in our trademarked uncomfortable chairs.

a second organization email points out the interest on exclusive contents and merchandise. If you have books pharo related or merchanidse to sell, do not hesitate to share your onlinestore links.
Here the mail:
A common observation from virtual events is that the stands do not get
enough attention from the visitors. After all, there are all these
talks going on, and people can go to the stand "any time" i.e. "later".
It is for this reason that we think it is important that you do try
to think of ways to create the sense of an "event".
The static content, videos etc. can help to reduce some of the
repetition you get at a live stand with different people asking the same
questions over and over, you giving the same demos over and over etc.
Embargoes - keep some of the content secret until a particular time
Events at very particular times - live demonstrations, meet particular
developers, discussions about particular software,
competitions (check these with your legal person first)
FOSDEM scheduled content runs between 10:00 and 18:00 CET both days, but
we propose that stands content opens at 09:00 to give you an hour before
the other things begin.
Any of you who have worked with devrooms or submitted talks will be
aware of the database system we use to create the main schedule website,
called pentabarf. Currently we are still busy finalising the developer
room schedules. Once that is complete, we hope to open up this facility
to stands as well so that you can also schedule events such as live
demonstrations (each in its own jitsi video room attached to its own
matrix chat room) and display these events on our main website and in
the apps alongside the rest of the scheduled content. In effect this
will give you a 'track' in the schedule for your stand, if you want it.
While the other tracks are primarily formal broadcasts of pre-recordings
of talks followed by live Q&A, stand tracks will just be informal
video/chat rooms with live content and not broadcast.
More details to follow - probably later next week.
We explored the construction of an integrated mechanism to distribute
project mechandise to attendees on behalf of stands (i.e. centralising
payment & shipping) but unfortunately this has proved to be too
complicated to achieve (both logistical and legal issues) so you'll need
to rely on any arrangements of your own if you have them.
