    What does FOTA stand for exactly? I have done numerous searches and have never been able to find out exactly what the letters stand for. Thanks for posting this and also the links to see more videos of the conference.

    I’m 99% sure”FOTA” refers to Fota Island in County Cork and isn’t an acronym at all.

    “Fota” is actually the name of a place outside Cork city, Fota Island. The first couple of conferences were held in the Fota Island Resort hotel and the name seems to have stuck, since I don’t think it’s been held there again. It’s a 5-star place, so cost may have been the reason.
