Dear Ada community,

Our proposal for an Ada Developer Room for FOSDEM 2023 has been
declined. I asked whether we could have a virtual DevRoom just like
in FOSDEM 2022, but it seems unlikely. This means Ada will (most
likely) not take part in the new edition of FOSDEM. We are saddened
by this decision, but the amount of proposals was indeed very large:
88 DevRoom proposals were submitted!

Nonetheless, we would like to encourage Ada developers to submit
presentations to other DevRooms that may fit your interests! You can
find the accepted DevRooms in [1]. I think the rooms that could be of
interests to the Ada community are "Confidential Computing", "Embedded,
Mobile and Automotive", "FOSS Educational Programming Languages",
"Microkernel and Component-based OS", "Open Source Firmware, BMC and
Bootloader" and "Security". However, take a look at all the proposals!
Maybe you are writing some RISC-V or networking software in Ada, and
there is a DevRoom just for it! Please keep the AdaFOSDEM mailing list
[2] informed about submissions and definitely about accepted proposals:
we'll build a consolidated list of Ada-related talks at FOSDEM 2023,
as we did before [3]. If you have any questions or issues, we will
gladly help you where we can.

We are also happy to announce that Ada-Europe [4], after learning that
there would be no Ada DevRoom in FOSDEM, has opened the possibility
of adding a new "DevRoom like" track in their 2023 conference [5].
The Ada-Europe conference will take place in Lisbon between the 13 and
16 of June, 2023. If you are interested in this possibility, please,
contact Dirk Craeynest <Dirk.Cr...@cs.kuleuven.be> to let him know.

Best regards,
The Ada FOSDEM team

Reminder: FOSDEM 2023 takes places this weekend, Sat 4 and Sun 5,
in Brussels, Belgium. See www.fosdem.org.

Even though we didn't manage to get an Ada DevRoom this year
(see below), the Ada FOSDEM team has an Ada stand in the
"Education" group on level 2 of building K at the ULB site,
with theme "It's time to learn Ada!"

Looking forward to meet many Adaists!

Dirk Craeynest, Ada FOSDEM team
