What is FOSDEM
FOSDEM is a free and non-commercial event organized by the community for the community. The goal is to provide Free Software and Open Source developers and communities a place to meet to:
get in touch with other developers and projects;
be informed about the latest developments in the Free Software and Open Source world;
attend interesting talks and presentations held in large conference rooms by Free Software and Open Source project leaders and committers on various topics; and
to promote the development and the benefits of Free Software and Open Source solutions.
Participation and attendance is totally free, though the organization gratefully accepts donationals and sponsorships.
The FOSDEM team thinks it is very important for Free Software and Open Source 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 development 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 and the LPI exams and the PGP/CAcert keysigning events.
