Minimalistic Languages Devroom call for talks @FOSDEM 2019

(also posted at https://libreplanet.org/wiki/FOSDEM2019-devroom-minimalism)

We are excited to announce a devroom on minimalistic languages (with
big ideas) at FOSDEM on Saturday February 2nd 2019!

FOSDEM is one of the most important free software conferences and is
hosted annually at Université libre de Bruxelles in Brussels,
Belgium. FOSDEM is fantastic, check last year's schedule for Saturday
(https://archive.fosdem.org/2018/schedule/day/saturday/)

Minimalism matters. Minimalism allows for smaller systems that take
less resources and consume less energy. More importantly, free and
open source minimalism allows for secure systems that are easy to
understand. Finally, we believe that minimalism is educational and
brings back the fun of the early days of computing where people learn
to understand systems from the ground up. Speakers will be asked to
accentuate the educational side of their projects.

We have a room Saturday 2 February 2019. We want to invite you to
submit a talk on the use of minimalistic languages that fits that
description. We are especially happy to receive talk submissions from
members of any underrepresented groups.

If you have something you’d like to share with your fellow developers,
please head to pentabarf at

  - https://penta.fosdem.org/submission/FOSDEM19

The deadline for submission is November 25th. If you have a FOSDEM
pentabarf account from a previous year, please use that
account. Otherwise add one on
https://penta.fosdem.org/user/new_account. Reach out to
[hidden email] if you run into any trouble.

When submitting your talk make doubly sure to select "Minimalistic
Languages devroom" as track (if you don't we won't find it), and
include the following information:

  * The title and subtitle of your talk
  * A short abstract of one paragraph
  * A longer description if you wish to do so
  * Links to related websites/blogs etc

Let's make this a fun day!
