We request you to present all talks and sessions on FOSS Operating Systems only, do let us know in advance if you don’t have a FOSS OS so we can arrange the required system for you.

Hi Amara, it would be great if you can provide us with some reference material for your talk since the CFPs are closing soon and we’ll be starting the review process.

Hi yes I’ll send one before tonight, also I don’t have a FOSS OS, so I’d require a system with one.

CFP - Working with serveless and supabase (Workshop)

:dizzy: Unleashing the power of supabase and serveless :fire:

Expected Talk: 50-60 minutes


Supabase is an innovative and powerful platform that brings together the best of serverless architecture and open source principles. It provides developers with a seamless experience for building and deploying applications, while eliminating the complexities associated with managing infrastructure and databases.

At its core, Supabase offers a suite of tools and services that empower developers to rapidly create scalable and secure applications. Leveraging the serverless model, Supabase abstracts away the infrastructure layer, allowing developers to focus on building features and delivering value to their users. The key idea here is to open our audience to the idea of supabase and get them started with backend-less apps.


  • What is a serveless ?
  • How can my life as a developer become easy if I use serveless ?
  • How does it work ?
  • How do I use it ? (Workshop: Live demo using Next.js :eyes: and Supabase-js

Hey everyone!

On the day of the event, we were planing to do a workshop on Novu, an open source infrastructure for building projects. It’s helps to integrate your project with email, sms etc

You can get an idea from YouTube link and the GitHub link below:
YouTube: Integrate Novu into your MERN Stack application - YouTube
GitHub: GitHub - FidalMathew/TodoNotify: TodoNotify is a MERN stack application that simplifies the work environment. It enables us to manage your team efficiently by notifying workers about the latest updates/tasks through email notifications.

We are having some slight changes to it. And like, we’ll be utilising the contributions from the users to give them notifications randomly.
Please let me know your views about this.

From smart homes and wearables to industrial automation, IoT devices are becoming increasingly prevalent in various sectors. At the same time, DevOps practices have gained significant traction in the software development industry, enabling teams to deliver high-quality applications at an accelerated pace.*

However, when it comes to developing and deploying IoT solutions, traditional DevOps approaches often fall short due to unique challenges posed by IoT environments. This session aims to explore these challenges and discuss how DevOps principles can be adapted and extended to address the specific requirements of IoT projects.

Key topics to be covered:

  1. Introduction to DevOps and IoT
  2. Challenges in combining DevOps and IoT
