Flossie is for women interested in using open source as coders, artists and social innovators. We run an annual conference and also regular events in London






Diversifying the Internet of Things

Adventures in Smart Assistive Environments

Spanning the two days of the conference, disability groups will work with UX and product co-design researchers, open data, pervasive computing technology specialists and architecture students to discuss the technological, design, environment and social issues and to prototype a new co-designed smart assistive device. Conference participants will be also able to engage with the process when not attending other events. From this beginning, we hope to develop a collaborative approach to the development of smart assistive envrionments and the possibility of developing a prototype with Blackwood Foundation's enterprise partners. Get involved.

Flossie 2013 Codesprint

A sprint is a get-together of people involved in a project to give a focused development on the project. Sprints are typically two to seven days long. Sprints have become popular events among some Open Source projects. This Flossie sprint will be held over the two days of the Flossie Conference on 8/9 November 2013 at QMUL, Miled End Campus allowing participants at Flossie to get involved in actual coding and contributing to the Flask project. A space has been allocated for the duration of the conference and it will also be possible for people not physically present to take part in the sprint virtually via the internet.
