Tiki Fest Fosdem 2017

«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.


In Brussels:
FOSDEM 4 & 5 February 2017
TikiFest 6, 7 & 8 February 2017


FOSDEM will take place at the ULB Solbosch Campus, Brussels, Belgium, Europe, Earth.


Joint stand application together with wikis-oriented communities (accepted)

XWiki and DokuWiki

The Tiki community would like to send a joint application for a booth together with other wikis-oriented communities, like we did very successfully last year for Fosdem2016 with the Xwiki community and the DokuWiki community.

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.

Get Social

Current status (accepted)

Jean-Marc Libs (Jyhem) has contacted the XWiki, the DokuWiki and the MediaWiki communities.

There is usually a FOSDEM-organized big Beer event on friday night before the event but it's totally overrated (unless you came alone, you know nobody and you like being crammed with total strangers with no intention of finding your friends). So we should come up with some better plan :-D
Saturday night is usually spent in center-town bars together with people's own, or friendly open-sources projects :-)

More ideas welcome ...
