«FOSDEM is a free event that offers open source communities a place to meet, share ideas and collaborate.
It is renowned for being highly developer-oriented and brings together 5000+ geeks from all over the world.»
Jyhem has attended for 4 years in a row and confirms that it's huge, it's chaotic, it's fun, and well worth attending.
Most of everything is in english.

Joint stand application together with XWiki and DokuWiki

our joint Wikis & CMSs stand
Wikis & CMSs stand

This year, the Tiki community has sent a joint application for a booth together with other wikis-oriented communities.

The reasons are:

  • it is important and it is required to have at least 2 people on the booth. We plan to be about 6 but there are a lot of conferences and booths we want to see, too.
  • There is a lot of competition for booths so a joint application has more chances of being accepted.
  • The more, the merrier. After all, we also travel to Brussels in order to meet people.

The XWiki community and the DokuWiki community have agreed on the idea.

Reminder of what having a stand implies


Practical information regarding FOSDEM stands (from Fosdem)

Dear FOSDEM stand organisers,

This email contains a lot of practical information. Please read
it completely. Apologies if you received this multiple times.
The previous version got rejected as spam for some people.

Stands will be located in three buildings on the ULB campus: AW, H
and K. You can find the location of your stand on the FOSDEM site:

Do not under any circumstances ship anything directly to ULB or to the
mail address of FOSDEM. We have no storage space in either location and
your shipment is more than likely to be lost if you send it there.

If there are things you need to ship ahead, and there is really no
possibility to arrange with someone local to receive your shipment,
contact us, and we will see what we can do. We will not accept any
shipments that we have not agreed on beforehand.

Build-up starts from 9:00 on Saturday. Visitors will start arriving
around 10:00, and you can expect it to be properly busy by noon.
The Saturday program ends at 19:00; you're expected to be out of
the building at that time.

For the night between Saturday and Sunday, there are overnight storage
rooms in the H and K buildings. You can also leave stuff at your stand
overnight; the buildings will be closed overnight, but we cannot guard
the hallways on Sunday morning. We also cannot provide any insurance or
take responsibility in case of damage or theft. We do have security
staff on campus at all times.

Sunday starts around 9:00-10:00 and the teardown starts at 17:00. All
stand holders are expected to help clean up the area around their stand,
and the tables and table cloths should be returned to the collection
point by the stand holders. Your stand area should be cleared and
cleaned up and the tables returned to the collection point by 17:30.

The tables provided are 180x80cm wide. We also provide table cloths,
but you are more than welcome to provide any on your own, especially
if you have something like a banner for your project. You may not tape
posters to the walls or windows near the stands.

We will provide you with a power socket. If you require more than
one, please bring extension cables. Note that Belgium uses type E
sockets: http://www.worldstandards.eu/electricity/plugs-and-sockets/
If you need any adapters, make sure to bring them along.

High-speed Internet uplink will be provided by means of WiFi everywhere.
If you have a device that requires a wired ethernet connection, bring a
bridge device with you.

If you have any further questions, please contact us at

Thank you for your participation and see you in Brussels soon!

Kind regards,
FOSDEM Stands Team

See schedule: https://fosdem.org/2016/schedule/


There is usually a FOSDEM-organized big Beer event on friday night before the event. It is so crowded that it is impossible to rendez-vous there. They also don't serve anything to eat.
So, instead, we will meet first at «9 et Voisins» which is in walking distance to the social event.
Starting 19pm, https://goo.gl/maps/21cZPPvjZbo

Saturday night is usually spent in center-town bars together with people's own, or friendly open-sources projects :-)

More ideas welcome ...

Cutting stickers before Fosdem

RoundtableMeeting at 17 Dec. 2015:

  • we will be getting 100 T-shirts, pre-financed by Nelson, ordered by Jean-Marc and delivered to Torsten who will bring them to Brussels. Colors: black, gray, dark blue, red and purple. They arrived at Torsten's. \o/

  • Jyhem also brings
    • the small posters
    • an anti-theft cord for putting a laptop on the table

  • Torsten will check the flyer (A4 two sides, not folded) and see what he can do for a black/white updated version. Then Torsten should mail it to Nelson so we can have them printed on Friday.

  • Stickers ... Gezzan volunteered to take care of this. They look nice :-D

  • Torsten brings:
    • the big banner
    • plenty of power extensions and multi-power-plugs
    • maybe an external monitor (24" or 26" ).

See you there!!!! :-D
