FOSDEM 2013

fosdemlogo2013As for the past years, I attended FOSDEM 2013 in Brussels (Belgium, Europe) with the only exception that this year I had the opportunity to also contribute to Mageia, staying at the booth and talking to the people. It was very nice to meet people commonly known only by their nick names on IRC ;-)

It was also a good occasion to talk about many interesting topics and to attend the general assembly of the Mageia project.

I had also the opportunity to meet the LibreOffice guys at their booth as like many other people belonging to other extremely interesting FOSS projects ;-)

FOSDEM remains a great event and its HUGE success [cit. https://fosdem.org/2013/] is the final confirmation.

I’ve to say thanks especially to someone:

  • my mother that accompanied me this year hoping to better understand Free Software and also to visit Bruxelles and its museums/monuments: she stayed at the ULB with the Mageia staff almost all the time and she helped us at the booth during the general assembly ;-)
  • Chris, Maarten, Marja, Oliver and Remco for their great kindness and hospitality
  • Wolfgang who helped me with a Broadcom releated issue
  • All the Mageia contributors!

Below you can find some shots I took during the 2 days event.
