2017

FOSDEM is one of biggest Events in Europe.

Check 2017 edition:


Communities dinners

There are also side events listed at:

But this elinux page can be also used for organisation of some of them


Connected things/Automotive Community dinner

As suggested by various communities (Tizen,Automotive, Automotive Grade Linux, GENIVI, IOT, Embedded etc) it could make sense to make an automotive/connected/thing focused BOF meeting on Saturday evening, too.

We plan to have dinner in a restaurant and some drinks/beers afterwards in a bar.

Latest updates

Latest infos that matters:

  • 2017-01-24 : For the restaurant:
    • Planned arrival/start time is 18:30
    • Bring enough EUR in cash with you for your dinner.
    • Vegetarian options available, vegan/gluten-free options WIP
  • 2017-01-23 : Restaurant chosen, Bar WIP
    • Restaurant will be 'Callens Cafe'
      • A short walk from ULB and good tram connection (Abbaye/Legrand/Cambre-etoile).
      • We'll reserve a table based on our head-count this friday (+/-).
      • Bring enough EUR in cash with you for your dinner.
    • Bar still WIP - we're looking for city-center with tram not too far


Register

 !!! For proper planning we need to know how many ppl plan to join.  !!!

If you plan to join us please fill this form:

We need an accurate head-count to book the place, so if unsure please use comment field.

If we're too much than we can handle in one place, sub groups for the dinner will need to be created. We'll rejoin then in the bar.


Details
  • For the restaurant, we're looking right now at/for places within walking distance from FOSDEM / ULB.
  • For the bar, we're looking for your suggestions (local ppl: places you do recommend?)

Plan is to be either close to ULB again (walking distance from restaurant) or in downtown.

What about these suggestions: le tavernier, michaelcollins.eu, Poechenellekelder, laportenoire.be ?
