I would definitely be interested in getting together with fellow Arch guys, and it doesn't look too far, so I'm interested, but:
- I am much more interested in the social aspect and/or meaningful
IRL discussions, rather then sitting in some booth promoting arch to (potential) users. do you guys plan to get a devroom and/or do more meaningful things then "booth-sitting" ?
I think, like last year, there will be a devroom, which will be populated by some devs hacking on archlinux during the conference.
- The link "program" on their site links to "call for papers", is
there a way to get an up to date view of what talks there will be?
This will be announced shortly I think.
- are the talks mostly in german? how much of a problem is it that I
don't speak german?
I think the amount of english/german talks is 50/50. I don't speak german, though I understand 80% of it because I'm dutch.
- is there an entrance fee?
Entrance fee for people not belonging to booths or devrooms pay 5 euros for both days. This is cheap.
- do you guys plan to go both days?
Froscon comes with a social event taking place on the night. Even the social event on its own is interesting enough to justify a visit to froscon. Froscon isn't froscon if it wouldn't be two days.
