I believe all the main rooms are being video'd again this year ( more
than were last year ) and should be on the Fosdem website a few days later.
I've been there every year for about 8 years not, except for the one
year when they decided it would be funny to change the date so as to
have it ON the day i was getting married!.... anyway, the big thing
about Fosdem is that commercial vendors, other than the few sponsors,
are left out and there are massive opportunities to network face to face
and talk to people about ideas and where open source as a while is
going. The flip side is that this also means that very few companies
will sponsor people over. The ones that do are the ones who are
themselves active in the open source arena ( and apart from the big
linux distros ) are people who dont represent the IT industry itself!
nutshell : if you can, get there, it might not further your job
prospects any, but it would sure be a fantastic learning experience -
and dont worry, too much, about the talks, focus on the social events
thats where the real open source conversations take place.
