We are thrilled to announce FOSS Backstage Design — a sub-event of FOSS Backstage where we want to gather everyone interested in User Experience Design within Free and Open Source software projects. The event will take place in Berlin on March 6th – the day after FOSS Backstage 2024. UX & Design talks have always been a part of FOSS Backstage, but with #FOSSDesign we want to dedicate an entire day to this important aspect in software development. Building a great user experience for FOSS projects comes with special challenges which is why we think those challenges should be discussed at a separate event. As a sub-event of FOSS Backstage we want to bring people from different FOSS projects together to exchange ideas and discuss best practices.
