The FOSDEM team feels it is very important for open source software developers around the world to be able to meet in “real life”.
To this end, we have set up developer rooms (devrooms) with network/internet connectivity and projectors where teams can meet and showcase their projects. Devrooms are a place for teams to discuss, hack and publicly present latest directions, lightning talks, news and discussions. We believe developers can benefit a lot from these meetings.
Last year, there were more than 160 talks in the Developer Rooms in addition to the many main-track talks, the lightning talks, the LPI exams and the PGP/CAcert keysigning events.
