Good question :-)
friday evening and (early) saturday morning.
No, that's not a lot, yes it will be hectic. But it shouldn't be /that/
- The network team will handle our network cabling (so we don't have to
worry about that). I've sent the person in charge of networking a list
of what we need last week, and have no doubt that it'll be done well.
- This is a university, which means they already have several things set
up for us which we don't need to do anymore; e.g., Janson has a fixed
beamer and (I believe) an audio set-up with mixer; we 'just' need to
add a twinpact and an audio cable to our camera. I'm expecting similar
things in the new K auditorium (which is smaller than Janson, but
still seats 800 people), but still need confirmation for this.
- The smaller rooms that we'll also cover will have the beamer set up by
the devrooms/talks/lightning talks teams, so we don't need to worry
about that (we just need to add the twinpact). Most of the rooms also
already have a PA system, so we don't have to do that either (though
we might need to worry about microphones and mixers, need to check for
- There will be 'only' one camera per room (we may do more cameras next
year, but I wanted to take things easy for this first time).
- Fluendo said they will do our streaming, though I haven't gotten final
confirmation for that yet. If they end up unable to do so, there
simply won't be any streaming -- since FOSDEM has never done much
streaming in the past, that won't really be a regression (there was an
experimental stream last year, but I don't think it was advertised
Basically, we only need to connect the laptops, cameras, twinpacts, and
audio (where appropriate), and of course test everything. So I think it
*should* be doable.
