FUDCon:Zurich 2010 Talks and Workshops
On this page we gather all the talk and workshop proposals for FUDCon:Zurich_2010's fixed agenda on Friday and Saturday.
When adding a session please keep in mind that the general audience is very mixed: users and contributors, beginners and experts, hackers and artists - to just name a few. Use the description and the audience level to make sure the right audience shows up.
A single session takes 45 minutes (followed by a 15 minutes break to change rooms and for the next speaker to get ready). If you do a hands-on workshop (note: not a hackfest) it can be 1h45 instead - please add a note if you need that kind of slot.
