Taking place February 4-5, 2017, in Brussels, Belgium, FOSDEM is a free and non-commercial event organized by the community for the community. The goal is to provide free and open source software developers and communities a place to meet to:

  • get in touch with other developers and projects
  • be informed about the latest developments in the free software world
  • be informed about the latest developments in the open source world
  • attend interesting talks and presentations on various topics by project leaders and committers
  • to promote the development and benefits of free software and open source solutions

Participation and attendance is totally free, though the organizers gratefully accept donations and sponsorship.

There will also be a BSD Developer Room on Saturday, February 4. The Call for Proposals is open until November 27, 2017. Find out more here.
