Request to visitors: Please update the FOSDEM Wikipedia entry

We have noticed that the FOSDEM entry on Wikipedia is severely out of date.

Since we are too busy organizing the conference at the moment, we would like to ask you, dear visitor, to help out with updating the entry for us.

If you happen to have five minutes between talks or in the hacker room, head over to Wikipedia and fix our entry!


LPI exam registration closed

For logistical reasons, the LPI exam registrations for FOSDEM have been closed.

For last minute participation, contact Klaus Behrla (who runs and oversees the exam sessions) directly, in the exam room (Lameere).

Video Recordings

Like previous years, there will be a video recording team (NamurLUG) covering FOSDEM. They will be recording the main tracks in Janson and Chavanne.
