Fosdem feb25-26 Brussels

The sixth Free and Open source Software Developers' European Meeting (commonly known as FOSDEM [1]) will take place during the last week-end (25&26) of February 2006 in the city of Brussels, Belgium. It's an annual 2-day event hosting talks, tutorials, and booth for the free software/open source community. It is organized by volunteers at the Université Libre de Bruxelles in Belgium. Access to all parts of FOSDEM is free of charge (but donations and sponsors are welcome to help fund the event).

The openSUSE project will be participating at FOSDEM with an openSUSE 'DevRoom' (Developer Room) and a small booth.

My tip: if you are a hacker/developer, you will certainly want to catch the sessions on the openSUSE Build Service. Based on some recent discussions I have had with Sonja Krause-Harder, developer evangelist for openSUSE, it looks like openSUSE Build Service can hugely accelerate your ability to build and test your software,

Also, Michael "the Meekster" Meeks (of and Linux desktop fame) will be speaking there. Oh, and don't miss Crispin Cowan, formerly of Immunix (and coming all the way from Portland, Oregon). Crispin's AppArmor is one of the most ingenious Linux security tools I've ever seen.
