Thank you!

written by T-DOSE on 2023-04-24

It's over! Two days of technical open source interaction with great presentations, diverse project stands and great discussions in the hallways.

Many thanks to everyone who worked hard to make T-DOSE 2023 a success! A special thanks to the speakers and the stand owners who helped make this event. And of course also to the volunteers and our sponsors, who made everything possible. It was good to see a lot of familiar faces from the last time the event was organised - and also a lot of new faces of people who turned op for the first time. We welcome feedback about your experience at T-DOSE. Please use the contact form to provide your feedback to the organisers.

We have already started planning again for next year. There will be a T-DOSE 2024 and we hope to announce the date in a couple of weeks. However, we are still looking for people who can strengthen the core organisation team. Please let us know if you are willing to help us out with the organisation.

Announcing T-DOSE presenters

written by T-DOSE on 2023-04-14

We are pleased to announce the presenters for T-DOSE 2023. We can look forward to some great talks on a wide range of topics, including the classic editor 'ed', Bareos, opsi and Ansible. We also have representatives from the local Home Computer Museum and from FSF Europe. In addition, the Angry Nerds will organise a live podcast from our event. Please check out our schedule for full details. Exact timeslots for the talks will be announced soon. On both conference days, the first presentation will start at 10am, so be sure to check in on time.

Unfortunately, we had a couple of cancellations as well, so there are still extra slots available. Our submission page is still open for last-minute additions. Please contact us if you are interested.

Social Event on Saturday

written by T-DOSE on 2023-04-13

It is a good T-DOSE tradition that we will have a social event with dinner on Saturday evening. This year will be no different. We will get together with T-DOSE organisers, volunteers, speakers and visitors after the first conference day - 22 April at 6pm. We can discuss the interesting presentations of the first day and look forward to what still awaits us on Sunday. Or just hang out with some cool people and discuss whatever you like. Everybody is welcome.

Register now to be a part of this!

In order to prepare for this event, we need a good estimate on how many people will join is. That is why registration is open as of today. If you are interested in a nice dinner with like-minded people, then please let us know via email to socialevent @ t-dose.org. Because we need to book in advance, there will only be a very limited amount of extra slots available for sale on the day itself. Register in advance to guarantee your place at the table.

Social event tickets cost 25 euro. You can pay during the event itself, at the T-DOSE info stand on Saturday. The social event is only open to people who have registered and paid before the event starts. Attendees of the social event will gather in the main hall of the T-DOSE event location. Don't be late, the doors will close at 6pm for the start of the social event. The entrance fee must be paid before that time at the T-DOSE info stand. If you have special dinner wishes, such as vegetarian food, please specify this in your email.

Announcing project stands

written by T-DOSE on 2023-04-11

As in previous years, we will have an information market during the entire conference, where Open Source related projects can present themselves. This year, there will be several projects that have also been present at previous editions, such as Debian, Hackalot, OpenOffice and Free Your Model Train (FYMT). However, there are also a number of projects that are new to T-DOSE, such as the local Home Computer Museum, opsi, Standard for Public Code and Bareos.

The full list of projects is published on our Projects page, which includes links to the websites of all the organisations for more background information. The official list will be updated in case anything changes. The project bazaar will be available on both days of the conference, during the entire day. Please visit these stands to learn more about these great projects.

Call for Papers and Projects

T-DOSE, the Technical Dutch Open Source Event, is a freely accessible Open Source conference, organised in the Eindhoven region since 2006.

The T-DOSE organisation calls for proposals for talks. All open source related presentations are welcome. Possible subjects for talks include specific software development projects, but also practical application of open source in schools/institutions or industry, open standards, community management, programming languages, open internet applications, legal aspects, historic developments, hackerspaces, etc.

At the same time, we open registrations for participation in the bazaar, where stands will be available to open source projects and other related groups to present themselves to the public. Stands will be placed in a central information market area.

T-DOSE is completely organised by volunteers. More information about the foundation and the core team, as well as sponsoring opportunities can also be found on our website. For any questions regarding submissions, please use the contact form.

T-DOSE on 22 & 23 April 2023

written by T-DOSE on 2022-09-13

T-DOSE will be returning in 2023, as a two-day event, on the 22nd and 23rd of April.

T-DOSE 2023 will be held at our new location: the Weeffabriek in Geldrop (near Eindhoven). This venue is less than a 15 minute walk from the Geldrop railway station. There is also plenty of parking space in the area. See the venue page for details.

We hope to greet a lot of familiar and new faces.

Moving our IRC presence

written by T-DOSE on 2021-05-26

The T-DOSE IRC channel has been moved to the Libera.Chat network.

You can join us on the #t-dose channel there. This is the only official T-DOSE IRC channel now.

T-DOSE postponed

written by T-DOSE on 2020-09-14

In the light of the recent upsurge of COVID-19 cases in both the Netherlands and the rest of the world, we have concluded that an event that brings together people from many different places is not a very good idea right now. Because of this, we have decided to postpone T-DOSE a second time.

We are now looking at dates in April/May 2021. We hope very much that conditions will improve soon to such an extent that letting T-DOSE take place is possible in a safe and healthy way.

Update: Spring 2021 is not an option either. T-DOSE will happen again, we just do not know when yet.

T-DOSE 2020 postponed

written by T-DOSE on 2020-03-21

It is with great regret that we have to announce that T-DOSE 2020 cannot take place on the planned dates. While as of yet the measures taken with regard to the Corona virus extend only until April 6th, it seems unlikely that everything will go back to normal at that time. Because of this, we have made the decision to postpone the event.

The good news is that we have been able to secure a new date at our venue. T-DOSE 2020 will now take place on October 24th and 25th of this year. The Call for Papers and Projects has been extended until September 15th.

We hope to see you all this autumn!
