As for being a free event, participation and attendance is totally free of charge (although we thankfully accept donations and sponsorship).  To help the community, FOSDEM sets up DevRooms (Developer Rooms) where teams can meet and showcase their projects.  It is also a place where a team can discuss, code (hacking sessions), publicly present latest directions, lightning talks, news, and decisions.  The FOSDEM Team thinks it is very important that developers from around the world can meet 'in real life' and we believe projects can benefit from these meetings.  Common facilities such as network/internet connectivity and projectors are provided by us.

Last year there were more than 160 talks in the developer rooms, and then the main tracks, as well as the LPI exams, plus lightning talks and GPG/CAcert key signing.

Spouses/partners: enjoy a guided tour of Brussels while your favorite geek attends FOSDEM !
  
 +
This year, FOSDEM hires professional guides to offer a guided tours of Brussels for the spouses or partners.  If he or she would like to accompany you, and is not interested in the FOSDEM conference, this will make the stay worthwhile.  Brussels is a city with a rich historical past, and a cosmopolitan present.
  
 +
The tours will take place both afternoons of the conference.  The first one will give an introduction of the heart of Brussels, and the other one will cover different views of the city, and make sure you're back well on time.
  
 +
The guides are from the organization Brukselbinnenstebuiten.

For Spouses or partners

Spouses/partners: enjoy a guided tour of Brussels while your favorite geek attends FOSDEM !

This year, FOSDEM hires professional guides to offer a guided tours of Brussels for the spouses or partners. If he or she would like to accompany you, and is not interested in the FOSDEM conference, this will make the stay worthwhile. Brussels is a city with a rich historical past, and a cosmopolitan present.

The tours will take place both afternoons of the conference. The first one will give an introduction of the heart of Brussels, and the other one will cover different views of the city, and make sure you're back well on time.

The guides are from the organization Brukselbinnenstebuiten.
