Request for Proposals – OpenWrt Summit

prpl Foundation is delighted to once again sponsor OpenWrt Summit. The OpenWrt Summit Planning Committee has announced a request for proposals for summit presentations, which is included below. If you’d like to share what you’re doing with OpenWrt/LEDE, please submit before the deadline of August 19! — Eric


To help encourage the growth and strength of OpenWrt, LEDE and the broader ecosystem, the OpenWrt Summit Committee is organizing the second OpenWrt Summit. Co-located with ELCE and OpenIoT in Berlin, Germany on October 13, the OpenWrt Summit is the only annual event focusing exclusively on OpenWrt. Free for all to attend, OpenWrt Summit does not require an ELCE/OpenIoT ticket. As snacks and lunch will be provided, pre-registration is requested (or register during your ELCE/OpenIoT registration)

Anyone interested in OpenWrt, LEDE or other related projects is invited and welcome.

As a community centered conference, we invite users, developers, employees of companies who use OpenWrt and anyone interested in OpenWrt or LEDE to submit a speaking/session proposal for the OpenWrt Summit.

Suggested topics include:

  • Introductory topics (What is OpenWrt/LEDE? How to build? How to install? How to build packages?)
  • Hardware (Adding support for hardware you created or bought, contributing back to the core)
  • OpenWrt/LEDE derivatives (Best practices, staying close to core)
  • Unique and complex usage scenarios
  • Security (Containers, jails, etc)
  • Culture (Encouraging new contributors, documentation, advocacy)
  • Internet of Things/Internet of Everything
  • Future of OpenWrt, LEDE and related projects

We also welcome any other session topic related to OpenWrt and LEDE. Again, we encourage everyone interested to submit a session proposal for the OpenWrt Summit. Proposals should be submitted by August 19. Financial assistance will be available for speakers who require it.

To learn more and to submit your proposal, please visit: http://openwrtsummit.org. Also, if you’re interested in learning more about the conference, including lodging information, please visit this URL as well.

We look forward to the session proposals! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask any of us.
