Thanks volunteers!

FOSDEM 2011 is behind us and was, according to initial feedback we received, the best edition ever! This would not have been possible without the aid of our enthusiastic army of volunteers who helped with the setup, moderation, infodesk and various other crucial tasks.

Thanks to all the volunteers! We're looking forward to working with you again next year.


For informative purposes, and in order to potentially fine-tune the organization of the event, we would like to ask you to take a few seconds to fill our anonymous FOSDEM population census.

Note that each question is optional.

On-demand streaming

Update: FOSDEM 2011 is over, the on-demand streaming is no longer available, but the videos will be uploaded in a higher quality to the website in the following days.

Talks are also made available via on-demand streaming. These are encoding of the raw capture without any cutting or post-processing.
Sorry for the delays but encoding 1080i streams in Theora takes a lot of CPU power.
