- What are we planning for FOSDEM? Will we apply for a dev-room again and/or for a stand? (for a dev-room we would need speakers, a stand needs more manpower to operate than the dev-room (all the time at least two to three people must be at the stand and since nobody can be there all the time so we need way more than that))

I agree that if we have to choose, a room with some good presentations for the general public seem to be more effective than the stand in terms of marketing. :-)

When I say "presentations for the general public" I was thinking of topics such as, for example,

* Objective-C/GNUstep on Microsoft Windows. How you use it, what works, what doesn't, with demo.

* a tutorial on how to build your first Objective-C programs (probably the most frequently asked FAQ on the mailing list)

* Maybe a general introduction to Objective-C ? We can make it reasonably general so it applies to both GNUstep, Apple and iPhone - thus attracting
a bigger crowd.

* Maybe some tutorials/presentations on some "advanced" topics in Objective-C ? (eg, discussing some of many typical Objective-C/ OpenStep design patterns) Something that might be useful to iPhone/Apple developers as well as GNUstep ones - so they come to the presentation, and then we'll do all the explanations and examples in GNUstep and they'll incidentally discover that there are free/GNU Objective-C frameworks, and that they work great. :-)
