What is FOMS?

FOMS is the Foundations of Open Media Standards and Software developer workshop, run in un-conference style with organized sessions determined by the participants.

It is a meetup of software developers and tinkerers of all stripes who gather to collaborate, code, and lay plans for future open video technologies and standards.

FOMS provides a unique environment where open source media technology developers, Web developers, browser vendors, and media standards developers meet and discuss open media software, including the Web platform as it relates to multimedia applications.

In its 13th year, FOMS is moving from San Francisco to New York to extend its reach to new communities again.

We'd particularly like to encourage open source media software developers to participate to gain further breadth in topics over the two days of this year's conference.

For more information see the Schedule page.
