Buffet sponsoring

This year, we welcome PePLink as a FOSDEM sponsor. They have decided to support us in the cost of the saturday evening buffet. But they went one step further: each donator of 100 euros or more to the FOSDEM organisation may get a 50% reduction on their MANGA Plus.

You'll be able to discover the MANGA Plus product on the PePLink stand, where PePLink agreed to present only Open Source and Free Software.

The FOSDEM crew thanks PePLink for their support of the event!

On saturday evening, we will again organise a FOSDEM buffet. Although the number of attendants is limited, the cost of such a buffet is rising fast and it wouldn't have been possible without the financial support of PePLink and X-Tend who we take the opportunity to thank.

All donators of 50 euros or more are elligible to take part to the buffet. As the number of attendants is limited to 190, we'll apply the FAFS principle: first arrived first served.

If you make your donation by wire transfer and want to take part to the buffet, don't forget to send a mail to with subject BuffetReservation.

Thanks for your support.

Contest & Support

The rules for the contest are :
  • images have to be submitted in png/jpg format
  • you can't include picture/drawing representing person (like RMS, Torvalds, ...)
  • you must be present at FOSDEM to be "a winner". If the one with the higher votes rank is not present, the prize will be for the second if present at FOSDEM, otherwise ... So, no more SVG pictures. You can read all of this here

    FOSDEM is a free (as a free beer) event ... but we need money to do it ! So we are asking people to make donations so that FOSDEM can happen. But we want to provide some "return" to our donators. Given that, if you donate this, you'll get that :
  • 25 euros: t-shirt
  • 50 euros: t-shirt + pocket guide + entrance to buffet if available
  • 100 euros: t-shirt + O'Reilly book + entrance to buffet if available + 50% reduction on a Peplink product
