Earlier tonight, on December 7 2009, a friend and me booked our flight tickets for FOSDEM 2010. I am really excited that I am going to attend another open source & free software conference. It has been a while since I had a chance to meet with other BSD people. The last time was in Milan, in EuroBSDCon 2006. It will certainly be tons of fun to meet in person with other free and open source fans, contributors and developers!
FOSDEM is an open conference, organized every year by volunteers to promote the widespread use of Free Software and Open Source Software. It takes place in the beautiful city of Brussels (Belgium). FOSDEM meetings are recognized as “The best Free Software and Open Source events in Europe”.
This year’s FOSDEM will take place on February 6-7 of 2010. The web page of the conference is already online at http://www.fosdem.org/2010/. Updates about the organization of the conference, transportation tips, accommodation options, the dev rooms and talks available this year, and any other bits that may be useful to attendees are often posted there by the organizing team. So if you are planning to attend, add this link to your bookmarks and keep up with the news until we meet in Brussels.
That’s all for now. I will be posting more details about the conference and my trip to Belgium as they become available.
