FOSDEM 2015 is approaching


FOSDEM

FOSDEM is the biggest European event for Free and Open Source Software. It’s a must see event for every open source software enthusiast.

This year it’s on 31/01-01/02 weekend, but it’s start traditionally with beer event at Delirium cafe Friday evening.

We have been three years there and it seems that every year the number of people almost doubles, like 3000-5000-8000 pcs. You can’t notice this inside the Libre University of Bruxelles, as there is plenty of space and rooms and the organizers do great job to make sure there is food and space for all participants, but you can definitely feel the crowd when the event is closing and thousands of people go out and wait on the bus stations to go back to their hotel🙂

There are hundreds of lectures, workshops, events which you can participate there, meeting people all around the world who share same ideas. It’s different than Linux Con for instance, where there is high entry fee and it’s more corporate event. FOSDEM is free to participate which attracts much more people and you should definitely come and see the atmosphere of freedom there.

In 2014 we had two tables there making soldering workshop, we apply this year too, but no reply neither positive neither negative so far, so I don’t know if we will do the same this year, too much work for the organizers maybe so they can’t reply to everyone?

    How cool is this, I read ‘Delirium café’ and thought: “we have a café with that name here in Brussels… let’s have a look… Oh, it’s organised right here! :D” Probably a +1 here😉.

    Too bad Olimex does not sell boards at their Fosdem booth!

    Tsvetan and friends, no Olimex stand this year (no request recorded here), but you’re most welcome to visit! Do keep an eye on our 2016 call for stands and submit a proposal!
