An adventure with free open source geeks from communities all around the Balkans and Europe aside the beach. Four days of co-creation for the commons of the beautiful island of Syros. Meet new people, exchange ideas, get inspired, collaborate to organize this un-conference together with the ultimate goal of growing our communities and spreading the free open source communities in every corner of our region.

A Typical Day at FOSS Camp Balkans

You start your day with other participants for a coffee by the beach and organize the day together. Eat freshly prepared breakfast and start working in teams for half of the day. Present your work in the afternoon, party on the beach in the evening. Repeat the routine for at least three days.


  • Day 1: general information including safety briefing and planning for the next days;
  • Day 2: Syros Mapillary contributions, Ermoupoli in 360' photo shooting & OSM contributions;
  • Day 3: Mozilla WebVR workshop and contribution of 360' photos of Ermoupoli to Wikimedia Commons; 
  • Day 4: More 360' and VR photos work & closing of the event.

Careful: this event requires active participation from your side!

Organized by Ura Design

Ura is the open source design agency founded by a passionate team of open source contributors. Its name comes from the Albanian word Ura, which means bridge. We aim to connect innovative open source projects with accessible and people-centric design approaches.

We love Free & Open Source software! However we also believe that there is a lack of good design in many open source projects, which we want to change.

Good design can differentiate your open source project. Our logos are seen on dozens of open source projects from famous brands like Mozilla, Red Hat and Wikimedia. We have extensive experience working with open source projects, doing design, documentation, research and community building.
