Engagement BoF

The Engagement team helps to promote GNOME all over the world and keep the current GNOME community engaged. If you're interested in helping to make it easier to contribute to GNOME (technically or otherwise), promote GNOME in your area, or if you have any ideas for us, we encourage you to join us!

We'll be holding two BoFs during the unconference days. This is a great BoF for newcomers to attend so that you can help us create a better experience for other newcomers like you!

Time & Location

We will meet in the same place and the same time on both August 1st and 2nd. Feel free to drop in during the times you're available.

  • Time: 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
  • Location: "Babbage" - a large room on the ground floor with tables and chairs that can be arranged as we want.

Proposed Topics

Feel free to add any ideas for topics you'd like to cover here:

August 1

  • Engagement team goals and strategy for upcoming year
  • GNOME Birthday promotion (August 18th)

August 2

  • Newcomers initiatives
  • How to better collaborate with other parts of the world (e.g. GNOME Asia, GNOME Hispano, people in Latin America, etc).


If you'd like to attend, please express your interest below. If you can't edit the wiki though, don't worry - just stop on by the day of.

What does "BoF" mean?

Glad you asked. BoF stands for "Birds of a Feather" and refers to the popular proverb: "Birds of a feather flock together."
