Hi folks,

We are excited to welcome you in person to the 2022 X.Org Developers

except when presenting or eating.

around 4:00 pm on Monday, October 3rd.  We’ll try to have a table with 
some sort of a sign, and folks can connect, have a drink, and then

Wednesday, from 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm.  The hope is that all three 
projects can mingle and socialize and enjoy the return of in person 

Also, this year we plan to adopt the Wine strategy of using a deliberate 
Matrix chat room just for the conference.  Matrix has a variety of apps, 
and Element, the default one is easy to configure on many devices, 
including mobile phones.  The link to that channel is here:
We find the chat channel a good place to learn what restaurants and bars 
are chosen, and just a good way to track the social aspects of the 

We look forward to seeing you next week!
