Updates on the OpenWrt Summit. Things are all going smoothly so far. As we have mentioned before, we are still seeking sponsors. All enquiries can be sent to [email protected]. The sponsorship prospectus is available on Basecamp or from Shelly directly.

CFP is open, we welcome submissions for talks (20mins/40mins), panels, or workshops. You can submit your proposal to [email protected] or to the following link – Accepting submissions until August 31st at midnight UTC.

Survey – This is to help us get an overview of how companies use OpenWrt.
Trying to get a sense of the development process people follow and the business process people follow. Suggestions for improvement.

Some questions to add – (mostly fill in the blank, multiple choice where we can fill in those options)
What products/applications are you using it in? (esp individual applications)
If not using OpenWrt, why not? What are you using instead?
Licensing/any concerns with typical current licensing
Training programs – do you know of any, do you want to have these?
Future requirements, any specific questions related to this?
Specific features you would like to see?
Roadmap features you plan to work on.

We would ask for email addresses but would not share information from people (participants will get a % discount on OpenWrtSummit ticket, entered into a raffle of some sort. Email address required to keep track of that)
Data will be totally anonymised when we share the results online.
Share report with a blog post that breaks down the information.
We will also present the results at OpenWrt Summit during day 1. We can have a deep dive based on the results on day 2.

OpenWrt/LEDE integration is going well. Status is that things are being transferred to SPI and all is running as it should now. Financed by donations.

Boardfarm – Pedro has spoken to João. They have been loaded with a lot of work so João hasn’t been able to share the presentation just yet. Pedro is interested in getting more involved. Presentation should happen next week.

Training programs – Does anyone know of any formal/ongoing/one-off programs that exist? If not, does anyone have interest in doing this? We will ask this in the survey to gauge interest from people.
