VideoLAN, a project and a non-profit organization.

VideoLAN Dev Days 2012
The Open Multimedia Conference that frees the cone in you!

The VideoLAN non-profit organisation is happy to invite you to the multimedia open-source event of the end of summer!

For its fourth edition, people from the VideoLAN and open source multimedia community will meet in Paris, France to gather, work, discuss and meet, on the 1st and 2nd of September 2012.

This technical event is focused on technical discussions and decisions about multimedia, and is focused to a technical crowd.

Like the previous years, an important number of developers from x264, FFmpeg, Libav and KDE will join us! Developers, designers and anonymous people around VLC, DVBlast, VLMa, skin-designer or other multimedia projects will be there too.

Who can come?

Anyone that cares about open source multimedia.
If you are not a technical person, but an enthusiast, we recommend you to come to the less technical events, like in the evenings.



The beer event will take place at « Le dernier bar avant la fin du monde » starting at 6:30 PM.

Our dedicated room is named "singularity" and is located in the basement of the bar.
