Bulgaria Web Summit 2014 with GitHub, ElasticSearch, SmashingMag and more friends

I think it’s time to write something about Bulgaria Web Summit – the event I am organizing since 2004. Of course the name back then was WebTech but this is just a formality.

Why Bulgaria Web Summit?

Honestly I don’t know, it was like … how we will name it .. Bulgaria Web Summit. The funny story is I talked 2 days ago with Florian from Usersnap and he asked me “I was wondering if Paddy Cosgrave already sent ¬†you an angry mail (about the name)” and today I’ve got a call from UK-ish number and I thought here it is, the angry Paddy is calling me.

Let’s go back to the event. It will be amazing, as usual. We will have speakers and friends from GitHub, ElasticSearch, eCommera,Smashing Magazine and even more and more. We will have of course a prime minister talking …well not the Bulgarian one, we don’t really like him, but the one from the Ministry of World Domination, no kidding.

Fosdem 2010 – OpenWeb and Communities

Since my talk was not scheduled for the main track for some reasons I decide to propose a new lighting talk about OpenWeb and Communities:. a 7 min unconference session with a little bit of provocation :)

I realise that FOSDEM is not suitable for community (and marketing) topics, but I think a different view on Mozilla and our contribution in age or participation was very good idea to touch our hacker souls :) So you’ll never understand what are the common things between ZORBA and Mozilla :)))

Maybe some of my readers knows, but FOSDEM is THE place where European Gnu/Linux hackers meet and will be sad if we can’t get their support on Mozilla related issues…. So, how can we do this?

Yes, we ALL support the Open Web, but do we really know what is the Open Web???
