At Open Risk we celebrate all things open source and FOSDEM is the biggest celebration of them all!
If you are not familiar, FOSDEM is a non-commercial, volunteer-organized event centered on free and open-source software development. FOSDEM is aimed at developers and anyone interested in the free and open-source software movement. FOSDEM is held annually since 2001, usually during the first weekend of February, at the Université Libre de Bruxelles Solbosch campus in the southeast of Brussels, Belgium. Obviously this year the entire event is virtual and thus anybody anywhere in the world has equal access!.
Continuing with a tradition we started last year we will attempt to get a glimpse at what the open source community is up to those days (or at least what they want to talk about!). To get an overview of what topics are “cross-cutting” (affecting multiple projects) at FOSDEM we will use the talk abstracts (710 talk descriptions) and process it to extract unique keywords that appear across talks. You can read further details about the analysis and results here.
