FOSDEM is the largest annual free and open source software development event in Europe, and I've been lucky enough to attend to this even few times in the past. For the last few years I was unable to attend to FOSDEM because of my other duties. This year, I'm planning to take a break in the middle of my exams and jump to Brussels in order to participate in the event once again.
What is FOSDEM all about? For me, it's the Free Software, Open Source, beer, Linux, Mozilla, hacking and friends. Given that I'm not a good drinker, I think I'll enjoy for having some company during the beer part, so my upcoming FOSDEM adventure will be everything FOSS!
This year, Mozilla will have, beside of the regular booth, a room for talks for only one day, which will give me even more talk choices. I afraid I'll miss some talks because I can't be in two places at once and some other technical reasons (hey! I still have some talks I wish to watch from their video archives!), but I hope to be able to attend to the most interesting talks. Of course, suggestions are welcome. ☺
I'll be in Brussels on early Friday, which gives me almost a whole day to tour the city and meet good old friends, which I was unable to meet during the recent Mozilla Summit (I was in Mozilla Summit Toronto, and the event held in two other places at the same time), and meet some new friends of course. I wish to have some hacking time and meet people with whom I can collaborate better on some projects in our area of interest.
Looking forward to see you all, and if you are seeing me alone, please step by and say hello…
