We're excited to announce that this year the festival will take place over the course of no less than 10 days, with events already confirmed for the majority of these.
Proceedings will get off to a start on Friday 2nd September with the Festival Day, a celebration of technology in everyday life, with fantastic speakers, inspiring talks and a wonderful mix of topics. Following which the programme so far is as follows:
- Saturday 3rd & Sunday 4th: Open Source Hardware Camp (OSHCamp)
- Monday 5th: Open for Business
- Thursday 8th: LLVM Cauldron
- Friday 9th — Sunday 11th: GNU Tools Cauldron
Further details will be added to the website over the coming months. However, this year session and registration details for all but the Festival Day will be hosted by participating event organisers, with this website serving more as day-by-day guide to what's on.
If you'd like to get a feel for the sort of talks you can expect at Festival Day, OSHCamp and Open for Business, see the event programmes from previous years.
Festival Day and OSHCamp have both been fixtures since the first Wuthering Bytes, with the Open for Business conference, organised by the BCS Open Source Specialist Group, joining us for the first time last year.
We're extremely honoured that this year we will be joined by the GNU Tools Cauldron, which will see an international delegation of world experts on the GCC toolchain bring their annual 3 day developer conference to Hebden Bridge.
Preceding the GNU Tools Cauldron, on Thursday 7th September, we will also play host to the first ever LLVM Cauldron, a developer conference for the LLVM compiler toolchain that is inspired by the annual GNU tools community event.
Call for Participation
If you'd like to host an event as part of the festival, please get in touch. At the time of writing Hebden Bridge Town Hall is available on Tuesday 6th and Wednesday 7th September, and there is the possibility of using other smaller venues around the town also.
Events may take place during the daytime or on an evening, and there is no issue with these running in parallel to other events (it's down to organisers to assess the practicality).
More news in due course and for now, save the date(s)!
