I’m booked to go to my first Fosdem. Got the train from Manchester to Brussels return for 140 pounds but the hotel (Hotel Centrale) was quite a bit more but right next to the main station and Parc de Bruxelles. Never been to Brussels before, so on either side of Fosdem, I’ve decided to take some time off and have a wonder around the city.
The Fosdem conference seems to be shaping up into a good event too. Here’s a few of the talks I’ll be checking out.
- Promoting Open Source Methods at a Large Company
- Evil on the Internet
- Inside StatusNet: How Identi.ca Works
- RepRap – Manufacturing for the Masses
I do wish there was some guys from XBMC and the Apache Cocoon project coming along, but hey I’m sure between the Mozilia, XMPP, OpenOffice and Ubuntu guys there will be lots of fun.
