And many others who will be giving talks and tutorials...

Several Free or Open Source Software projects have decided to hold a meeting during FOSDEM. It is a great occasion to meet core developers in the following developers' rooms: Ada, Calibre, GNU Classpath, Debian, Embedded softwares, Gentoo, GNOME, GNUStep, Jabber, KDE, Linux on Laptops, Mozilla, Opengroupware, openSUSE, Tcl/Tk, X.org. All those rooms have an internal schedule, including talks and presentations from lead developers.

Do not miss other FOSDEM initiatives like the Key Signing Party, or the LPI exams.

FOSDEM's goal is to provide Free Software and Open Source developers and communities the opportunity to learn and discuss the latest developments in the Free and Open Source arena and to promote the development and the benefits of Free and Open Source solutions.

The speakers mainly talk about their technologies and make technical speeches.

The event is totally free.

This is a non-commercial event organised by people from the community, that is why we encourage you to support FOSDEM if you appreciate the event and want it to continue in the same spirit. More information about the FOSDEM 2006 support operation at http://www.fosdem.org/2006/index/support/

We hope to see you there.
