FOSDEM is a two-day event organised by volunteers to promote the widespread use of open source software.
Taking place in the beautiful city of Brussels (Belgium), FOSDEM is widely recognised as "the best open source conference in Europe".
What is FOSDEM ?
FOSDEM is a free and non-commercial event organised by the community for the community. The goal is to provide open source software developers and communities a place to meet to :
- get in touch with other developers and projects ;
- be informed about the latest developments in the open source world ;
- attend interesting talks and presentations on various topics by open source project leaders and committers ;
- to promote the development and the benefits of open source solutions.
Participation and attendance is totally free, though the organisers gratefully accept donations and sponsorship.
The FOSDEM team feels it is very important for open source software developers around the world to be able to meet in “real life”.
To this end, we have set up developer rooms (devrooms) with network/internet connectivity and projectors where teams can meet and showcase their projects. Devrooms are a place for teams to discuss, hack and publicly present latest directions, lightning talks, news and discussions. We believe developers can benefit a lot from these meetings.
Last year, there were more than 160 talks in the Developer Rooms in addition to the many main-track talks, the lightning talks, the LPI exams and the PGP/CAcert keysigning events.
