BOF organisers themselves can be anyone who attends the conference, you don't have to be a speaker. BOFs can be organized for individual projects or broader topics (best practices, open data, standards, key signing). BOFs are entirely up to you. If you have an idea for a BOF please feel free to add it to the list. ... more

If you or your company can help, please get in touch, or click more to read the complete article. ... more
