FireShonks is dead, long live FireShonks

You’ve probably all heard it by now: FireShonks 2023 will not take place in its originally planned form. But: The event will still take place, just with reduced scope and produced by a smaller team.

FireShonks 2022 was a collaboration between several groups, which did not work out this time for different reasons. We, the remaining FireShonks orga, are a subset of r3s (RheinRuhrRemoteStage) and a few additional people. We regret that there has been confusion about the status of FireShonks in recent days.

In addition, we had to switch to our own infrastructure: If you are holding a talk with us and have already uploaded a pre-recording to Seafile, please check your current emails and upload the video again using the new URL. Due to these and other last-minute changes, we ask all speakers to keep an eye on their emails. If you have any questions, please contact

Nevertheless: We will continue to plan and produce FireShonks. Our schedule has been published, we are working on the technical details and look forward to your watching of the stream on! You can find more information on
