I'm attempting to volunteer for a talk on hamara linux and RISC V
a totally open hardware and software stack.
We are very happy to have your stall at SFD. No one is going to object
for hosting a stall for a GNU/Linux distro and a open hardware stack.
Since you mentioned about volunteering for a "talk", I am not sure how
you assumed the setup for this celebration would happen, so I will try
to give you a picture of our past proceedings.
Usually we would kick-off the event at 10am, therefore we arrive an
hour earlier at the venue which is a School. 3 to 4 class rooms would
be allocated for us and so we rearrange the benches and setup stalls
in the given rooms and outside the rooms with writing and sitting benches.
At 10 to 10.30am we would have a general assembly where all of us
gather together for a formal kick off briefing and reiterating the
need for software freedom and the objective of the movement. Once that
is done, we all get back to our stalls and wait for visitors (students
and general public) to come and visit each stall and when they do we
explain them what this stall about. Afternoon we break for lunch
(which will be arranged for everyone who is part of this SFD
organizing) at the same place and then we get back to our stalls.
Usually afternoon will see very less visitors because of the hot
temperature. Around 4pm we can expect a little spike in the number of
visitors and we will end the celebration around 5pm with an closing
session (with everyone sharing their experience, suggestions and
things to improve, etc.,).
I hope this would give you a picture of how it usually happens here. I
am bit confused when you mentioned it as a "Talk" because we will not
have a closed auditorium like setup where the stage is the center of
attraction. But definitely everyone are free to speak up, give a talk
during the assembly.
