Slides and videos online

Two weeks after FOSDEM and we are proud to publish most of the slides and videos from this year's edition.

All of the material from the Lightning Talks has been put online. We are still missing some slides and videos from the Main Tracks but we are working hard on getting those completed too.

We would like to thank our mirrors: HEAnet (IE) and Unixheads (US) for hosting our videos, and NamurLUG for quick recording and encoding.

The videos from the Janson room were live-streamed during the event and are also online on the Linux Magazin site.

We are having some synchronisation issues with Belnet (BE) at the moment. We're working to sort these out.

LPI exam online registration closed

The online registration for LPI exams at FOSDEM has now been closed.

If interested in having a LPIC-1/2/3 or Ubuntu certification at a discounted rate at FOSDEM, you may still apply on site.
Every exam session lasts 1.5 hours with a break of 30min in between, which is the best moment to go to Guillissen (in the U building) and register.

Note that the 1st session on Saturday is already fully booked.

Pink Elephants Tonight!

Don't forget! Tonight, Friday 22 February 2008, is the FOSDEM Pink Elephant beer event at the Delirium Café.

See the Friday Beer Event page for practical information or call Philip if you manage to lose your way.

Please note that the beer event is taking place at the Delirium Café. This is not the same place as previous years!

Saturday Free Beer Party

Some visitors organize a free beer event. Here's a quote from their site:
Brussels, Saturday 23 February from 9pm (21h).
What, exactly?
A party held at the iMatix HotSpot, a warehouse on the wrong side of town that's been the scene of many heavy parties over the years. We invite all FOSDEM attendees to come and enjoy.
The program includes live West African music and a great lineup of DJs. Belgian beer, snacks, and other drinks, compliments of iMatix. We love free software, and we love free beer!
