The FIRST ever MeeGo conference begins today in Dublin at 09:00GMT. (Well today if we’re ignoring the early bird sessions that happened during the weekend). No more Maemo Summit, it is now of course all about MeeGo.

The overview of the events are as shown below, but a much detailed programme list can be found here. <<Please check it out!

I’m not attending as I have placements this week that I could not miss but we’ll still try and provide a good coverage of some of the more interesting aspects when we can. What’s cool is that a lot of the main events are being live streamed. The very first two are must watch: Strategic Freedom with MeeGo at 9:15-9:45 with Doug Fisher (Intel Vice President, Software and Services Group, General Manager, Systems Software Division) and MeeGo Momentum and the Qt App Advantage at 09:45 – 10:15 with Alberto Torres (Executive Vice President, MeeGo Computers, Mobile Solutions).

On Tuesday, November 16th, I’ll would be really looking forward to MeeGo Handset UX Roadmap (also live streamed) with Sami Pienimäki at 4:30PM – 5:10PM but most likely I’d still be at my placement.

The session will give an introduction into the MeeGo Handset UX activities and its current status, the vision and goals, the roadmap and deliverables in particular hardware profiles. It will also address the compliance plans, the participants and co-operation model, and how to get involved.

And look what happens at the end of the Conference: Ireland / Norway Football Game at Aviva 😮 Nice.

There’s so much to get out of the MeeGo Conference! So much to find out and learn, possibly many devices to go play around with 😀 TI OMAP 4 and ST ERICSSON U8500 reference designs with MeeGo.

What are you most looking forward to at MeeGo Conference? What are your expectations?
