FOSDEM 2018 DNS devroom CfP!

Nov 20, 2017
Hello DNS-enthusiasts and other developers,


After two successful BoF sessions at FOSDEM 2016 and 2017, FOSDEM 2018 will see a real DNS devroom! We hope to host talks anywhere from hardcore protocol stuff, to practical sessions for programmers that are not directly involved with DNS but may have to deal with DNS in their day to day coding or system administrators responsible for DNS infrastructure.

We have been allotted half a day on Sunday 4 February 2018. We expect to schedule 30 minutes per talk, including questions, but this is open to discussion.

If you have something you’d like to share with your fellow developers, please head to pentabarf at Examples of topics are measuring, monitoring, DNS libraries, and anecdotes on how you’ve (ab)used the DNS.

The deadline for submission is December 8th. If you have a FOSDEM pentabarf account from a previous year, please use that account. Reach out to if you run into any trouble.

We are also looking for volunteers to help with cameras etc. Please drop us an email at if you’re interested in helping out.

See you there!
