FOSDEM 2020 is a little more than 1 month away and we're hoping to get a
good group of KiCad folks together at and around the weekend.
Last year, we tried a group chat system using WhatsApp to coordinate and
meetup. It worked well but many folks had well-justified concerns about
utilizing a closed solution for this, especially one controlled by Facebook.
This year, we're going to use Zulip, which is open source from app to
core. It's similar to Slack or Mattermost or other chat systems. It
has decent desktop and web interfaces as well as phone apps. The
website doesn't size very well for phone usage but the phone specific
apps do well.
We've set up a FOSDEM-specific room for event-related conversations and
coordination on site. You can join the room at
As we get closer to the event, we'll start planning the KiCad group
dinner again this year.
