What is FOMS?

FOMS is the Foundations of Open Media Standards and Software developer workshop, run in un-conference style but with pre-proposed sessions.

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.
