… and also, this year I giving two presentations there.
I’m presenting OCRFeeder in the GNOME DevRoom and SeriesFinale in the Embedded/Mobile DevRoom!
I just love FOSDEM, the spirit of it, the number of important Open Source projects in there and the city of Brussels!
If you wanna have a chat about OCRFeeder, SeriesFinale, Hildon Input Methods, Rancho (for Django folks), Igalia or other important Open Source projects, while drinking a nice Belgian beer, let me know!
Last Monday I finally arrived at A Coruña coming from the always great FOSDEM!
Those were 3 intense days where I had the chance to taste some of the finest beers in the world, attend great conferences and meet really nice people.
This year I had the chance to walk in the city and see and feel its magic. I also found the best restaurant I could eat atlast year, this time really in Brussels (last year we went to Gent), I am talking about Amadeus. You DO NOT want to miss this great place if you go to Brussels, Gent or Antwerp. The thing with this restaurant is: you eat a giant piece of ribs with a tasteful sauce that you like so much you feel it should be forbidden and… if your belly can afford to have it, ask for another round already included in the price. And the price, ridiculous, only about 15 €! I paid ~18 € if you with the drink.
This was also a good opportunity to meet Igalians I only knew from Igalia planet and talk more with those I knew before. I was great to share good times with you guys! Apart from my colleagues, I could also meet open source ninjas like Lucas Rocha from EOG.
Hope we can repeat the thrill next year folks!
Next Friday morning I’ll be flying to Brussels to attend FOSDEM for my second year.
I’d really like to thank Igalia for this opportunity. I loved Brussels and the spirit of Open Source that was spread during the event last year and are really looking forward to attend some nice talks this year as well.
I was a bit sad though to find out that almost nothing will be related to Python/Django. Anyway, it will surelly have a bunch of quality subjects covered and I’m excited to go check them.
