What FOSDEM is

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

  • get in touch with other developers and projects,
  • get informed about the latest developments in the Free and Open Source world,
  • attend to interesting talks and presentations held in large conference rooms by Free and Open Source project leaders and commiters on various topics,
  • and to promote the development and the benefits of Free and Open Source solutions.

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.
