Recap of FOSS4G 2022 in Florence

In August, we at mundialis had the pleasure of attending FOSS4G 2022 in Florence. As it was again a face-to-face event, there were many opportunities to talk to other participants, exchange ideas, develop ideas and of course listen to a number of excellent talks (core conference programme). The beautiful city of Florence at the end of August was an excellent place to hold FOSS4G 2022. The conference also had a lot to offer in terms of culinary delights, with more than 1000 participants enjoying Tuscan specialities.

The conference took place from 22 to 28 August. The week started with two workshop days. Here we offered the following two workshops:

In the core conference (streamed in parallel for non-attendees in the online channel) we presented the following main talks:

We had the opportunity to enjoy culture in the evening besides the “Icebreaker” and the gala dinner (with live music session!), as Florence is the city of Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Galileo Galilei. The atmosphere at the conference was excellent and we made a lot of (new) contacts.

The videos of the presentations will soon be available on the conference page.
