FOSDEM '08 is a free and non-commercial event organised by the community, for the community. Its goal is to provide Free and Open Source developers a place to meet.


Announcing 2008 Keynote and Main Track Speakers

The list of Main Track speakers for FOSDEM 2008 is almost complete and officially announced today, even though the website doesn't contain all the speaker bios and abstracts yet.

The keynotes will be highly interesting and entertaining, as always:

Keeping our tradition of high quality technical talks, the main tracks for 2008 will be organized around 6 topics and feature a wealth of project leads and core developers from all around the FOSS horizon:

LPI Certification Exams at FOSDEM

Linux Professional Institute (LPI) gives visitors the opportunity of doing LPIC-1, LPIC-2, LPIC-3 and Ubuntu exams at FOSDEM again, at a 48 to 55% rebate off the official rate.

Call for Developer Rooms and Stands

The deadline has passed. The call for Devrooms and Stands has ended.

FOSDEM will take place on 23 and 24 February 2008, and we provide so-called Developer Rooms ("devrooms") as well as Stands (booths) to Free and Opensource projects. For every devroom we invite a project to organize talks, open discussions and/or hacking sessions. We offer an environment for developer collaboration, but we have only a limited number of rooms at our disposal.

Stands are provided to let projects present themselves, draw interest and talk and share knowledge with the vast crowd of developers attending the conference.

FOSDEM 2007 - What People Think

During the event Raphael walked around with a camera and asked some questions to the visitors of the conference. In this compilation he asked "How would you describe FOSDEM to a friend?".

More videos will come in a not to distant future...

New website & brainstorm results

Netlash is finally fixing the last bits and css-bytes of our brand new website. You'll soon see it in here.

Secondly thanks to all the people who submitted a subject for the brainstorm. We drew the main structure concerning the tracks we'll have at the conference and are now inviting speakers.

More info coming soon...

Proposing speakers and subjects

Thanks for the input. The brainstorm is now closed. All the proposals will be used as brainstorm for the next edition.

FOSDEM became what it was thanks to all the visitors. Every edition the FOSDEM Staff becomes bigger and the FOSDEM organization becomes more stable. It is time for us to open up our speaker invitations a little by requesting input from you.
